The Lottery News

Last night after the BBC News the announcer announced “The Lottery News”. How ironic that the “winning” numbers in the lottery qualifies to be news. It followed the news that 4 firemen were tragically killed in an arson attack in England, and Mexico was experiencing serious floods. But then I suppose that Postman is right — even the “serious” news is just entertainment. And “The Lottery News” is the tragic announcement that millions of deludedly expectant people have just been ripped off for another week.
