Another "Entertainment" Crock

As a rule I despise, well, okay, dislike awards programs on the tv.  I have a lot of good reasons, not the least of which is they are self-congratulatory puff pieces, signifying nothing.  And they go on, and on, and on.

So in spite of this knowledge, I watched the opening scenes of the ACM awards program this evening. And here is another really good reason to dislike the stuff.  The writers put together a string of really snarky "jokes" wherein famous "artists" or others are the butt of the joke, then get a star of the stature (now diminished) of a Blake Shelton to read them on stage and before the camera.  Nasty.

Someone needs some "sensitivity training" wherein they are taught the difference between light-hearted good fun and the truly despicable.

Or maybe that's just me.

I am seriously considering giving up TV. Life is getting too short to indulge foolishness, coarseness and worthlessness such as is offered on TV these days.

Chuck, most any other activity would be a redemption of time.
