Amanda Todd Suicide: Police Will Investigate: Larry Fedoruk Blog

News Talk 610 CKTB :: Amanda Todd Suicide: Police Will Investigate – Larry Fedoruk :: Larry Fedoruk Blog.

This isn’t about a quality baby boomer TV show. But it is about a topic that’s near and dear to my heart and that’s BULLYING.

I opened my weekend Seek or Shout email this morning and on a page with only two entries I found this link from Larry Fedoruk’s blog about Amanda Todd. I really like Larry Fedoruk’s blog. He blogs about relevant issues not just fluff.

I almost always write about fluff, but not this time. I hate bullies and after I watched Amanda Todd’s silent video where she was holding up pieces of paper that was the narration behind years of her pain I decided that I wouldn’t write about fluff today.

UPDATE: I asked for permission to be a member of a “group” on Amanda Todd’s R.I.P. Facebook page and it’s a mixed emotion. First, I’m getting a lot of emails to my personal email account. Second, I found some awful things people have written on her R.I.P. page, things that Amanda’s parents will see and it just breaks my heart.

It makes me upset that Facebook can’t do a better job of monitoring those pages. I even tried to report this person and when I did I found pages and pages of instructions from Facebook, but didn’t find a link or email address or any way to actually “report” this person. I’m inserting the item, but I’m warning you, it will piss you off and considering Facebook makes it impossible to report it and does nothing to stop it will piss you off even more.

Someone thought it would be cute to make a bleach ad featuring Amanda Todd’s likeness.

Welcome TV Watchers …

and Baby Boomers. Did you notice that during the recent Super Bowl the advertisers didn’t bother to talk to you? Which is a big mistake, according to Laurie Edwards-Tate, of Communities at WashingtonTimes.com.

Edwards-Tate notes “baby boomers born between 1946-1964 represent 26.3% of the country’s total population but control a third of all consumer spending – a whooping $2.1 trillion in annual buying power” as defined by the MetLife Mature Market Institute. According to Tate, that represents  more than 16x the buying power of Generation X (those born between 1965-1976) and Generation Y (1977-present).

My purpose for starting this blog is to provide you with information on quality television programming — it has nothing to do with advertising. Trust me, if the advertisers aren’t interested in talking to you, then the television programmers aren’t either. Especially, it seems lately, the major networks. Thank goodness there are many cable networks that are interested in providing quality television to ADULTS who are intelligent thinkers.

Let me warn you up front that you might not agree with how I define quality television. I was born in 1954. Smack dab in the middle of the “baby boomer” years. Comedy to me was Carol Burnett. There’s not a situation comedy show on TV now that I can stomach, so you won’t see me commenting on any.

I should also tell you that I’m watching my quality programs on a flat-screen television beamed into my living room by one of the best satellite services in the country. I have two DVRs (one is an HD DVR) so I rarely miss an episode of anything.

I won’t be summarizing shows or “spoiling” them. I will be commenting on how good writing, excellent character development, quality casting and superior acting all come together to entertain and engage us.
