A Lack Of Trust
It took a few stories before I realized it was April 1st and much of what I was reading was probably bogus. Much of the output was obviously at joke because the pride in a good ‘goof’ has disappeared. There certainly hasn’t been an attempt to approach the quality of the BBC Panorama Spaghetti Harvest program.
It is a sad commentary that we can’t even create a decent prank anymore. I realize that our media and political organizations are huge jokes, but they don’t know it, so they can’t be counted as pranks.
