I mean….

I am reading one of my local e-news things…and I am really confused about what constitutes as “news.” I understand that my town is really into local everything- food, beer, art, music, people, you name it. However, apparently we have a shortage of local editors. Or journalists. I write about random stuff that I do around town, and I do it because I’m narcissistic and forgetful. These supposed news sources write about basically the same things, but with more names, and it’s news? No. 

It should be mentioned that I am grumpy because I’m cold and someone in my office is eating cat food for lunch, based on the smell. But I still feel I have a valid concern. If you are telling me things and calling it news, then I want to know about events and activities and the like, not what you ate for breakfast and with whom.
