This weeks news

The most important news story this week was the 700 billion dollar bail out plan for our economy. This news story is important because our economy is sinking fast. Americans have been waiting to see what our government plans to do about it. Now that we have heard the plan, I am not quite sure everyone is thrilled to hear it. It just seems like a run around the real problems in our economy by throwing money at it. This story has been broadcast on every station, picked apart by journalist, financial specialist, and is now being debated in congress. The presidential candidate debate on Friday was almost postponed because McCain was helping work on this new economic plan. Some people thought it was a copout that McCain was scared to debate Obama. Others were happy to know that their presidential candidate was a man of action. Our economic struggles, the new plan to save our economy and the presidential candidates opinions were the biggest stories in the news this week.

Warwick Avenue

When I get to Warwick Avenue…
Meet me by the entrance of the tube.
We can talk things over, a little time…
Promise me you won’t step outta line.When I get to Warwick Avenue…
Please drop the past and be true.
Don’t think we’re okay, just because I’m here…
You hurt me bad, but I won’t shed a tear.

I’m leaving you for the last time baby…
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me.
I’ve been confused outta’ my mind lately…
You think you’re loving but I want to be free.
Baby you’ve hurt me.

When I get to Warwick Avenue…
We’ll spend an hour, but no more than two.
Our only chance to speak, once more…
I showed you the answers, now here’s the door.

When I get to Warwick Avenue…
I’ll tell you baby, that we’re through.

I’m leaving you for the last time baby…
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me.
I’ve been confused outta’ my mind lately…
You think you’re loving but you don’t love me.
I want to be free, baby you’ve hurt me.

All those days spent together, I wished for better,
But I didn’t want the train to come.
Now it’s departed,
I’m broken hearted, seems like we never started.
All the days spent together, when I wished for better,
And I didn’t want the train to come

You think you’re loving but you don’t love me.
I want to be free, baby you’ve hurt me.
You don’t love me,
I want to be free,
Baby you’ve hurt me.




Duffy plans to arrive at Warwick Avenue, a London Underground station near Little Venice. She is going to meet a gentleman at the entrance of the tube. She is interested in talking things over about the relationship. However this is only going to take place if the gentleman does not “step out of line” says Duffy.

When Duffy and unidentified man arrive at Warwick Avenue, she would like for him to forget about the past and start telling the truth about the current events in their relationship. “Don’t think we are ok just because I am here” Duffy states. He has caused her so much pain that she can’t forgive him and she is done crying about it.

In an outrage she finally states that she is “leaving him for the last time baby!” He always claimed to love her, but she knows better now. She says that she has been ‘confused’ a lot lately, but now she wants to be free. The man looks dumbfounded that she is actually leaving this time.

Duffy has planned this meeting with unidentified man to last an hour, but if things get heated she will extend the meeting to two hours.  He questions her decision to leave for good. She tells him that she has already given him all of the answers he is looking for and it is time for him to leave through the door to his left.

Duffy tells the man that she has come all this way to Warwick Avenue to tell him that “they are through” and that is final. He looks baffled.

Duffy restates her speech on leaving him for the last time and how she was confused. She tells him again about wanting to be free and needing her space. She tells him again that he had hurt her and she is leaving and that is final. You think the guy would get it by now.

Duffy says that she always wished for better in their relationship, but he was useless.

Free Write: Ike

Hurricane Ike was meticulously cover by every station. They had reporters in the field, interviewing officials, and running around telling people to get out or die. One report that stands out in particular, is one Hiraldo Rivera did. He was there before the hurricane officially hit. He was standing on a pier near the water, reporting on the quickly changing weather and the growing level of water. He is standing there soaking wet showing the water level, when he tells the camera man to pan down the pier. He starts talking about how no one should be down there and everyone has been forced to evacuate. As the camera man pans down the pieryou can see a large women running after something in the knee high water, while she tells her kid to stay on shore. Hiraldo comments on these people saying that they are foolish and ignorant for being down there in a time of disaster like this. I just have to say look in the mirror buddy!

When a group of people decide that they do not agree with the political views they are being governed by, they should seperate from that group. And with decent respect they should decide why the seperated.

It is a fact that all men and women are created equal. We all know that God has given us undeniable rights/ We have the right to live, have our liberties, and persue our happiness. To have these rights we have to have our own Government in place. This Government must get its power from from its people. When or if the goverrnment gets distructive, the people can change it or get rid of it and start over. The People will organize the government so they feel safe and happy. A long established government should not be over thrown for a small reason. If the government causes too much abuse, the people should change it, and create new guards to protect themsleves. Thats why we are creating this new government. We left the King of Great Britians Tyrant ruling to stop sufferring. So we are changing things for the better.

Free writing: busy

Managing my time has become a very complex task. I find new events and homework coming at me all the time. I need to make money to keep my car and my apartment. So I had to find a job. I find myself struggling now to get the hours I need at my job. I worked util 1am last night and went to bed at 3 am. I have so much homework to fit in between work and class. I want to join the paper and the TV station, but unless it is helping me make money for rent, I can’t afford to fit it in right now. On top of all the homework and readings and writing, we now have events to attend for class credit. So I have to take time off work to fit in all of these little extras teachers insist on throwing into their curiculu. Trust me if I was a millionare and or my parents helped me pay for things. I would love to attend all these extra events, and spend all my time focus on just school. But that is not the case. I have a lot going for me now and a lot I need to learn. I wish I could attend all your events and do all your extra reading. I wish I didn’t need sleep and that I didn’t need money. I wish that every time I turn the sink on I wouldnt think about home much money is running down the drain.

Free writing: journalism

Journalism is something I have just got into. It has taken me a long time to decide what I wanted to do with my life. I have changed majors at least five times. I have changed school two almost three times. I took a year off last year and worked my way through. I was going to go to cosmetology school in Portland but at the last minute i changed my mind. I spent some time in Portland a few weeks in Pennsylvania and a lot of time working at Shaw’s in Ellsworth ME where I live. After all that time off and on the run, I finally decided to head back to UMO and persue a career in journalism. Journalism seems to include all of the thing I am interested in. I love to write and do photography. I love to travel and meet new people, and when my life is done i want to have made some kind of difference in the world. So now that I have found my major all the hard work begins.
