Isn't this depressing?  Almost as bad as all of the newspapers 
dying.  The necessity to go overboard to attract attention is behind 
the photo manipulations. Today we depend on Fox and CNN for our news 
and our photos of what is happening in the world.  Most of the news 
and all of the photos are provided by i reporters or i photographers 
who provide their "art" for free to get their names in print.  All of 
the news is centered on "celebrities" or whatever story happens to 
get the most clicks.  What in the world can we do about all of that?

I'm planting tomatoes, peas, peppers, corn, okra and spinach.  At 
least I know they will come up as expected!
