Daniela Gioseffi is the first woman with an Italian name to be widely published in the mainstream of American poetry, though she started her career as a T.V. journalist in Selma, AL. promoting Freedom Riders.

The movie moves in a rapid clip.</li> <li>. . . . The theme at the end of the movie over closing credits sounded real good.  That’s the “<strong><em>Star Trek</em></strong>” I remember.</li> <li><strong>DOCTOR’S ORDERS. </strong><span> </span>I had a burning in my lower leg.  I recently had a growth removed and I thought it might have been some side effect from that.</li> <li>. . . .

Speak<span> </span><em><strong>English</strong></em>, for<span> </span><strong>God’s</strong><span> </span>sake and don’t get so technical about it.</li> <li>They did a final goodbye to<span> </span><strong>Randy Jackson</strong><span> </span>on “<strong><em>American Idol</em></strong>” this past week, showing pictures of him then and now.  He announced the previous week that he has decided to leave the show after<span> </span><strong><em>12 years<span> </span></em></strong>of being a judge.</li> <li>. . . .

It’s sorta sad the way the producers have ruined the hit show over the last couple of years.  At its peak “<em><strong>Idol</strong></em>”  pulled in<span> </span><strong><em>30 million</em></strong><span> </span>viewers a week.  Lately it’s been<span> </span><strong><em>14</em></strong><span> </span><strong><em>or 15 million</em></strong>.</li> <li>. . . .

They finish each other’s sentence.  Just like a married couple.</li> <li><em><strong>NBC</strong></em><span> </span>canceled “<strong><em>Rock Center</em></strong>” -- always a dumb name for that prime-time news magazine show – due to low ratings. </li> <li>. . . . Anchor<span> </span><strong>Brian Williams</strong><span> </span>stood up for the show and spoke of the work the staff did for it.</li> <li>. . . . “Our people<span> </span><strong><em>got shot at</em></strong><span> </span>for this broadcast . . .”</li> <li>. . . . Whoa!  That happened?  What story?  Was it<span> </span><strong>Richard Engel</strong>, that guy who’s always in a hot spot?  Tell me more.</li> <li>A backstage spy told the<span> </span><strong><em>New York Post’s</em></strong><span> </span>“<strong><em>Page Six</em></strong>” that rock star<span> </span><strong>Katy Perry</strong><span> </span>was so overcome with emotion at seeing<span> </span><strong>Cyndi Lauper’s</strong><span> </span><strong><em>Broadway</em></strong><span> </span>musical, “<em><strong>Kinky Boots</strong></em>” that “she was crying so hard she thought she<span> </span><strong><em>lost an eyelash</em></strong>.”</li> <li>. . . . I always thought those things weren’t real.</li> <li>. . . .

Let’s hope graffiti artists don’t choose them as their next palette.</li> <li><strong>SWOOSH SOUNDS. </strong><span> </span>That’s what some<span> </span><em><strong>TV news</strong></em><span> </span>shows are using when they introduce reports, I guess, to signal the timeliness and immediacy of a story.</li> <li>. . . . It’s a gushing, rushing sound, something like when a car speeds past your window or a jet goes by before breaking the sound barrier.</li> <li>. . . . Its use dates back to the back –in-the-day tabloid “news” programs like “<strong><em>A Current Affair</em></strong>,” when they did anything visually and aurally to hype up the show.</li> <li>. . . .<span> </span><em><strong>ABC’s<span> </span></strong></em>“<em><strong>World News</strong></em>” does it every time<span> </span><strong>Diane Sawyer</strong><span> </span>introduces a piece.</li> <li>. . . .

Gee, what they won’t do to make<span> </span><strong><em>TV<span> </span></em></strong>better.</li> <li><strong>INTENSE.<span> </span></strong>There’s a job opening as a “<em><strong>digital media producer</strong></em>” for one of the networks. </li> <li>. . . . They’re the ones in<span> </span><strong><em>TV news</em></strong><span> </span>who are responsible for all aspects of producing:  writing scripts, editing, shooting and booking.</li> <li>. . . . One of the many qualifications called for says:  “Must have strong writing skills and the ability to ‘<strong><em>crash</em></strong>’ high-end pieces and under extreme deadline.”</li> <li>. . . . That’s what they’re looking for nowadays. </li> <li>. . . .<span> </span><em><strong>One-man</strong></em><span> </span>(<strong><em>-woman</em></strong>) bands.  They do everything.</li> <li>. . . .
