small talk tip at a Presidential function...

Ok..I know I am supposed to keep up with current events, but I honestly lost track of the Bill Frist stock scandal (not to be confused with the other issue involving misuse of campaign funds) during the 2005 holiday season. It was all over the media in September and October, then radio silence. I wonder if the Justice Department and the SEC are still investigating U.S. Sen Bill Frist over the questionable HCA stock transactions. If you struggle like me with small talk at political events, maybe you could use this line of questioning to break the ice when you run into Frist in Nashville hanging with the President next week. If the answer from Frist is no - they found nothing and I have been exonerated - then you just made a new friend. If the answer is yes - they are still digging - then chances are you will not be included in the next Chamber invite list to a Presidential function. Either way, let me know what you find out.

If anyone is keeping up they will notice that kind of silence happens a lot these days. It almost feels like a bookburning media style. Oh well, what money won't buy, right.
just a note, though, I haven't forgotten nor have a lot of others who will vote.

I was wondering the same thing about Frist. All of a sudden the story disappeared. Amazing - the power of our corporate controlled media - to phase out a story such as that one. But it is nothing new really. What happened to the story on the Downing Street Memo? Heard about that one lately? What about the Ohio Election results challenges? Never hear any more about that. What about the oil companies involved in the Oil For Food Scandal? Hmmmm. No follow ups on that one either.

There are so many examples where the media lets stories die. I guess they'd rather let people know about Oprah's disappointment with that author... or the Honeymoon Couple on the Cruise where the guy disappeared... or the girl who disappeared in Aruba. They've been following up on these important stories.
