Generic Confusion

When you leave, my blog just fades to grey
Nu ma nu ma iei, nu ma nu ma nu ma iei


News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Slanted Media Coverage

Looking through some old books, I found Murphy's Rules, a collection of humorous rules from various strategy and roleplaying games. One, though, was quite prescient.

"In the Vietnam roleplaying game RECON (RPG, Inc.) journalists and TV cameramen can be found only in bars."

With so much reporting outside the embedded reporters coming from hotels and from alleged tips from the enemy, this rule may very well appear in a future game about the War on Terror.
