The Evening News

I was watching ABC News with David Muir the other night.  Mr. Muir said the following on the broadcast:

“You’ve got to see this.”

And this:

“You won’t believe what happens next.”

And he used the word ‘adorable.’

So okay why not give it all up?  Go whole hog.

“There was this, like, animal shelter.  I don’t remember where.  And they put this picture of two dogs hugging on their web site.  And then somebody posted it on their Facebook page and, well, it got, I don’t know, a bunch of ‘likes’.  Thousands, millions, I don’t know but a really really big number.  People went to the web site and it crashed their server, whatever that means.  They had to shut down their web site.”


Imagine this:

Walter Cronkite takes off his glasses and starts massaging the bridge of his nose.  He looks off camera and says, “You really want me to say this?”

He shakes his head and puts his glasses back on.  He looks seriously at the camera and says, “You won’t believe what happens next.”

And that’s the way it it.


About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.

  1. Sigh. A place for everything and everything in it’s appropriate place.
    Facebook and blogs perfect for some stuff like gossip, children caught being cute, and kittens…..what? it’s everywhere?
    Death of real reporters and real news.
    Small minds relish small things…old sayin’ goes something like that.

    Walter Cronkite wouldn’t stand a chance in today’s network news environment.
