It's a lot more fun to talk about the holidays, the Chiefs, the weather or just about anything else then the current set of news headlines while hanging around the kitchen table these days.
The news media is this weird mix of holiday feel -good stories, horrid crime stories and sports headlines.
Just wondering here--what is the biggest and most important thing that is before us?
Do the folks at City Hall think the same things are important that we, the citizens, think are important?
How much does the media have to do with our priorities--that what they report is what comes to our attention--makes the most noise--and provokes us to call for action? Is what creates the noise really the most important thing?
