The Media, Politics and Policy No Longer Meet

Note that I have changed the description of this blog. "Where the media, politics and policy meet" was too limiting to follow as a daily directive. More importantly, two of the three items, politics and policy, are just no fun to delve into every single day, unless you're John Stewart, Steven Colbert or Al Franken. One anonymous commenter suggested that I focus on the Israel-Hezbollah battle instead of the Tour de France. See what I mean? Now you tell me, which one is more fun?

The new description is "Encouraging critical thinking, one person at a time." This meets one very important criterion -- like the blog's title, Media Concepts, it means nothing. It is an empty vessel. That way, the blog is about anything the blogger wants it to be about at the moment. Besides, what blog reader doesn't want to be thought of as a critical thinker, and an individual?

I'm feeling free already.

"Encouraging critical thinking, one person at a time" ?

Who or what is encouraging the critical thinking? The blog? You?

Changing the world of non-critical thinkers one person at a time?

Careful, sounds a tad superior.

See? That's the beauty of such a vague term. It's in the eye of the beholder. If the new description sounds superior, I shudder to think what the old one sounded like.
