Take a gun to my head
And pull the trigger. Between the politicisation of the IPL and the cricketisation of politics I feel generally underwhelmed. There is a lot of not so good real news going on across the world, real news other than Jade Goody's death. Flimsy excuses are being used to cut back on staff and salary cuts are really starting to hurt the little guys in the media. Things are getting so bad, that it seems whenever I end up at a gathering of journalists, young and old all talk about how horrible times are. And when things start going wrong, the amount of fingers that start being pointed are not funny - "I'm not useless, he is", or in certain places, "S/he is more useless than me" The sudden acrimony is leading to some fairly interesting plots all over the place. Will keep you posted on more and I promise to be more regular this week.
