I wonder if the current solar flare will have any impact on the Sealy News. Just imagine what could happen if the paper suddenly developed an alternate mission: responsible timely reporting, details about local criminals, trial updates, and feature stories.
What if the Sealy News actually stopped catering to a select few, and demanded accountability from civic leaders? Would we notice a positive change?
After all, the paper does belong to the community; why can't we read the stuff we have a right to know?
Simply put, I am no mathematician; but, even I have noticed an odd trend within the Sealy News. Reports seldom have a follow up…someone is controlling the content. Victims are pushed aside, (Katherine and Kendall Addison) while the actions of certain well connected perpetrators are only glumly visited, but never elaborated upon.
Let's take a look at that embarrassing public spectacle, accused child porn king, Stephen Wayne Sudduth. No one has closer ties to the community: brought up in Sealy, attended Sealy public schools, former Texas educator, with close relatives living in town.
Since his arrest on October, 29, 2009, he seemingly has vanished into thin air. Even though his trial has taken a myriad of interesting twists and turns, no one at the Sealy News has bothered to cover this important, and very interesting, story.
The Sealy News is counting on the recent solar flare to wipe all of our memories clean. Soon, curious local citizens will stop whispering over Tony's coffee, and everything will be perfect and positive in SealyLand.
Obviously the mission of those who control the Sealy Paper is to bathe some figures in as positive of a light as possible, while fabricating a false "good ole boy down home country" atmosphere out of pure, thick, brown, dog scat. YEEHAW!!!
The problem with this is that people have noticed.
Never mind me, I doubt if the active solar flare, and its plasma burst of radiated protons, will relieve the citizens from this ridiculous grip on its community paper.
But, wouldn't it be nice if the Sealy paper was truly an unbiased record of important events? When our descendants check the archives they will note these obvious lapses, the people left out. Our descendants, in a search for the truth, will find the Sealy News lacking.
So whilst the boiling sun rains down its radioactive particles onto the surface of planet Earth, shifting reality, and filling us all with uncertainty, we can still bank on the Sealy News to remain dim, muted, simply a silhouette framed against the plasmatic solar glare, then blowing away like dried up meaningless dog dung. As it should.
