#1 Unfortunately I'll miss her performance as I will be doing something else that day. Not certain what, but I'm sure I'll be doing something else. Nor will I be on hand to watch the National Felon League's Super Bowl.

#2 I think I'll give a miss to Bouncy and Jay-zee also. Not only is Showtime not in my cable package, but she is one of the Obama-adoring celebutards that I am boycotting from now until the end of time.
#3 I'll watch just to see what sort of reception she gets. But she isn't just dead to me- she never was alive. I ignore all "celebrities."

#4 Just like last night when I happened to be sitting in front of the TV when Diane Sawyer broke into a little story about Oprah Winfrey's breast cancer scare.
"This is the news?" I asked. "Ask me if I care."

Cancer is scary. 50% of the people you know will have a brush with it, if not be directly killed by it. While you were resting in an alpha state, Diane's 'facts' were injected. I bet the background theme for the ad that followed is still in your head.
Tribal chants, however glitterized, with a subliminal beat to increase receptiveness, reprogram or reinforce existing audience proclivities with the repeated chorus.
It's all manipulation. If not interested, be VERY aware.

#6 The more I watch Diane Sawyer the more aware I become. Once you see past her smooth veneer it really is scary.

#7 Oh, good. I'll add this as Another Reason I'm Glad My TV Is Gone. Reason# 1058, I believe...

#8 I have a much more productive use of my time that evening; I'll be watching oil paint dry.

#9 Many people who read and like Tolkien and C.S. Lewis haven't read the novels by the other Inkling, Charles Williams. Williams was quirky, but one of his first ones, Shadows of Ecstasy, is relevant here .....
