In an ongoing effort to, 1) get back to writing, and 2) to share some of the odd things I’ve learned over the last year and a half spent helping develop three retail stores, I present today’s “Something New”.
Today’s “installment” has its roots in the way a popular story can occlude other important news. Think about it. How many famous people died, for example, on the day of some big disaster? How often does something important happen in the world that we never become cognizant of? It happens much more often than we realize, and such an instance of “masked news” can eventually cause us both shock and sorrow when such a story comes to the fore.
On the day that John F. Kennedy was assassinated, two luminaries in the world of literature also died. C. S. Lewis and Aldus Huxley both passed on the same day, but many of us (or was it just me?) were unaware at the time of the loss to the world of readers.
How much has happened… “behind our backs”, so to speak?
I am often bemused, and embarrassed by the things that happened in “Masked News”.
