Jon Halsey: What I will be missing by not watching Tv

Follow up following Knifley Christian Church Fish Fry to: Comments re article 83319 Jon Halsey Selfimposed Tv blackout going to be a long one

By Jon Halsey
Contributing Tv Critic

This evening, at the Knifley Christian Church Fish Fry, someone who had read my post asked if I was concerned about catching up on all the TV I have been missing between now and the November election.

Based on the informal survey that led to my decision, about all that I will have missed is: Trump, Clinton, Sanders, Clinton, Sanders, Trump, Trump, Trump, Clinton, Clinton.

Hopefully my self-imposed Blackout won't last much longer than a week or two after the election and then things can return to normal; such as what actress/actor is sneaking out with who, or how Congressperson Whoever says Congress is totally dysfunctional.

Or how if we only had more Democrats/Republicans in the House/Senate we could get something done. We might even find out if we have Global Cooling or Global Warming or maybe, just maybe we might learn if we can even expect to even have a Globe or at least a strife free Globe.

I admit that expecting an honest, fact based analysis of that last bit seems like too much of a stretch for today's pundits.

- Jon Halsey, Knifley
