The Old Soldier made sure to sleep in his bed last night and not doze on the sofa drinking beer and listening to talk radio from 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. This is a bad habit that I need to break.
It seems to me that talk radio is divided into two political agendas: conservative and liberal. The talk-show hosts love hitting the latest hot-botton issues in order to get their listeners fired up so that they call in.
The listener who agrees with the host is made to feel welcomed. The caller who does not agree with the host is put-down.
For a little while, I thought I might learn something from late-night talk radio that would help me to build the readership of this blog; but I don’t want to be divisive. That’s not my nature.
I want to bring together people who can appreciate serious writing and brazen sexuality in the same publication.
Well, the Old Soldier has money in his pockets and it’s a sunny, mild (a high around 53) Spring day in the city. That means karaoke tonight at Del’s Bar and Italian Restaurant in Bloomfield (Little Italy) which is only about a 15-minute walk from my apartment building.
I’ll be gathering material for the “Karaoke As Performance Art) series.
See everyone tomorrow.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a blog for readers and writers who appreciate serious writing and brazen sexuality.
