Quote from: James G. on March 30, 2011, 08:24:51 PMI must say -- as an independent and analytical thinker, that question caught my attention.If you're not associated with the Coast-To-Coast AM program, why would you be seeking program-subject ideas? None of us have any input or weight in determining content. I must ask: Do you?Please know some of us have more deep, insightful concepts earned through trying life experiences and intensive careers. Now, why should such as us "surrender our work" (and it's work, believe it or not) with any compensation or credit to ourselves? Doesn't the program have paid employees -- call them earners -- responsible for that?Also note that the name George has six characters. Your user name also has six characters. Like Mr. Noory says often, there's no coincidences? (My user name has six letters, but totls eight characters)Being a lifelong student of the English language -- and having a 30-year career in writing, editing, journalism and public-information -- there's a structure to your words, spelling and grammar I recognize. This is merely my conclusion, based on my experience and wits. It reads like someone who's in the broadcast industry. In one form or another. Probably college educated, but a broadcasting/television/radio major.I can tell you're not in the print -- or written area. But I can tell writing is involved in a degree of what you do. But when I see a certain lack of punctuation and wrong words being used (although pronounced the same as the correct one), that's something I've seen in radio and television people -- those going through editors like myself before their words are printing, published or published. I also note numbers under 10 aren't spelled out per AP style or root English. I've seen that trait in broadcast people, because what they write is spoken, not printed.Again, the notion of seeking program ideas from these forums "piqued my interest." Now, note the majority of broadcast people would write "peaked my interest." If you do indeed work in some capacity in broadcasting or entertainment -- especially for a major network -- I will leave you with this. Some of us create big things. Big things. All the time. I do not watch movies anymore, nor watch or even have a television. A two-year ordeal that cost me a limb opened my mind beyond belief. Now I see further. A lot further than I ever thought possible. All I do is think these days. And sit behind this keyboard and write out what I envision. And that's all I do.But the main things I learned is that our world needs to get better. After surviving what I did, and having to live as I do now in poverty. With one leg. I sought to dedicate my life to making a better world. And a better country. But, although I changed in such a positive manner, I can see the world didn't. It's called greed. It's called selfishness. It's called indifference.It's called harm. Harm to such a wonderful world we have.I get tired of having my work and material stolen. Darn tired. And, no doubt, falling back on my grasp of human nature, to assist the cheaters in gaining material things. And adding to their own prestige. Because they can't think, create and envision such things on their own. No matter how much they're "earning."Note the word "earning" in quotes. Cordially and in all respect,James G.Excuse if my typing isn't up to par tonight. The last bulb in my one-room flat burned out tonight, and I'm plunged into total darkness here. Nothing like using a black keyboard, too! So, forgive my typos. I have a small flashlight strapped to my shoulder right now so I can see! Ha
