In one sense, the United States is the busiest nation on Earth, certainly the most economically productive. However, we are also a country of idlers, far too interested in non-essential things such as sports, entertainment, awards, and famous people. The art of sitting, meditating, praying, or even sleeping in a quiet room has left us. Americans now treat peace and quiet as an enemy. We won’t hear of it. Entertainment rules. As a people, we feel like we must know the latest info on everything, the very moment that it happens. Then when we get the scoop, the trusty cell…

It was 1982, I’ll never forget sitting in front of my 32 inch tube television with Atari cords flooding the area waiting for the premiere of the Michael Jackson Thriller video. My elbows experiencing a piercing pain from kneeling on the Thriller album cover. At the time, and probably till today nobody realized how important this video was in regard to showcasing black musicians on mainstream television. MTV was the first to cross over so to speak, and feature a black artist. Michael Jackson broke all barrier lines…

Gossip writing is a rarely discussed category for freelance writers. Sure, we all aspire to be published in The New Yorker and gossip writing is not taught in journalism schools. Almost everyone gossips. In fact, more people gossip now than ever before. Their medium is the blog, particularly Facebook and other social networking sites that have replaced the old-fashioned diary with personal gossip. Most of us gossip about people we know. In the media, gossip is about celebrities.
