Most of the world's difficulties can be laid at the feet of boys and beer, a lethal combination for any brain cell activity. Boys and beer will do things no woman would ever consider. Imagine a woman green-lighting this.
For your consideration, I present I Hate Men Channel's new television series Coming Home. Coming Home is a typical All-American maudlin soap opera of families separated, obstacles overcome, with alls well at the end of the story, but with a cold, cruel twist. In this new series, which begins this evening, military service men and women, who have been serving honorably in difficult overseas assignments, just happen to come home and drop in on their families, UNANNOUNCED. Say that last sentence to yourself slowly.
The SOB's got sprung from Afghanistan, never told their families they were coming home, yet had the presence of mind to alert a camera crew, just to be able to play gotcha. Sixty six years ago, coming home unannounced was the norm, but now we have touch-tone. This is a low down, dirty, heartless trick.
I've been working so hard lately to keep my cynicism in check, and then they go and do this. I do so hope I'm wrong about this, and will apologize to each and every one of you if I am. Someone will have to let me know though, for in protest for the rest of March, or until the PBS fund raiser is over (whichever comes first) I am joining TV less Divine Theatre.
End of Rant. Thank you
