Slow News Day?
I'll concede that much of the 24-hour news cycle is filled not just with fluff, but with stale fluff. At the same time, I was surprised yesterday to see "Soldier salutes funeral procession in pouring rain", picture and all, held up as a story of national interest. What's next? "Man removes hat when entering church"? "Man opens door for woman"? "Child thanks grandma for Christmas gift"? These are all instances of good manners, and Heaven knows we need more examples of good manners these days, but are any of these really news stories?
