Okay, for what it's worth, after a long time of exclusively
wathcing CNN (especially AM), I have been watching Fox &
Friends. I know, I know. Yeah, I'm the guy who included titles
like American Morning and Headline News in my latest book of
poems These Americana Blues
has been such a big part of my life ever since Economics class
at Freedom High w/ Walter Shingler and I realized what my
responsibilties were because of where my family stood on the
socio-economic ladder - and just what the means and could be.
However, Soledad and Bill remind me of brother and sister -
like Donnie and Marie or something and it just doesn't come
across as credible and professional. Sure, I was in a family
business w/ my sister until I was able to make as much money
for my family as I took -up until that point yet that does not
provoke me to write this email.
I plainly think Heidi comes across more professional, credible
and hard working. Please, don't get me wrong, I like Soledad -
she is very likable. But, maybe as your cultural correspondent
and contributing Rolling Stone editor can help translate, I
like Hedi better than the (maybe even more) likable Soledad
just as I like the Jayhawks, Wilco, Anti Flag, Ryan Adams and
Rusted Root more than Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, Eminem,
Blink 182, Korn, The Strokes, The Shins, Ashlee Simpson.
