Topic: avaricious

i have equated this word with a little extra meaning of some one so greedy as to want possession of a thing/ things. not so much for their own pleasure, but in denying that item from possession of some one else...especially from some one that is deserving. that to me is the ultimate in disgust, that is greed.

Topic: Joseph Warren (1741)

this is one of the reasons i love the free dictionary by farlex, i had never heard of dr. warren. he was not even brought up in school when i was a kid. after reading this article i got a chill (really). he is one of the bravest men i have ever heard of. the word hero is used a lot these days, but i dare say this man is still a true hero in my book. bless his memory!

my opinion is that news broadcasting is over. press releases are done. abc, cbs, nbc, upi, api, npr's all propaganda. it's all one sided opinions of what's going on. walter cronkite, edward r, murrow, huntley & brinkley.....those days are gone. it's about who shouts the loudest. listen to any of these morning "news shows" they contstantly talk over each other. they interrupt their interviewee, lose the train of thought of most of the is what is now called "INFOTAINMENT". 20 people died today but they looked great doing it......thats whats on.
