Here’s an interesting conundrum: I’m sitting in my home office here in Salem and there are news helicopters circling overhead. Something must be going on, but a quick scan through the local TV stations and the local newspaper web sites reveals no breaking news and no indication of anything going on. Guess I have to wait until the evening news.
It’s an interesting symptom of the “instant news” world we live in that I expect the news to be reported instantly, either via the broadcast media or online. I wonder if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
