No news today

In 1954 Elvis Presley recorded Good Rockin' Tonight at Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. The first line goes, "Well, I heard the news - there's good rockin' tonight."

This was big news in 1954 and it still is now. Such is the news of the day.

No news today

Today there is no news. Nor was there news yesterday. Over the weekend I spent time in Michigan. Since this had been planned months ago this also does not qualify as news. What was news to me, however, were how the women of Michigan behaved. How they treated people. Not only the women of Michigan, but also, women from other parts of the country, who, like me, found themselves in Michigan over the weekend.

Perhaps this isn't news to anyone. Perhaps the people of Michigan have known this for years. Perhaps they don't spread this particular news because they want someone to come and rescue them. Or else they want others to experience it for themselves. Either way, this is why Michigan is kept in Michigan.

No news today

What constitutes news? The question seems fluid, elusive. In some ways there was news today, in other ways perhaps not. Same goes for the last couple of days. Everything depends on context. This statement, of course, is not news to anyone.

News today

There is news today. However, there was no news yesterday or the day before. Likewise, there was no news the two days before the day before. My internet connection was compromised, severed. But that does not qualify as news. Today, though, today there was news.
