For one thing, it's the weekend. Except for the Sunday a.m. news shows, the crews of most news organizations are skeleton and made of of second and
third tier people. If "something" were to occur, it would take them forever to react . They would have to bring in the "big boys" before anything
"substantial" would be said, done, or reported.
My ex was in radio news and I was familiar with this phenom. The night that Gorby "suddenly" stepped down due to "ill health" years back, CNN
made an announcement and I sat up for 4 hours waiting to hear if I were crazy or if I'd really heard something that was major news and no one was
reporting it. I began to think I was the crazy one. Finally, about 4 a.m., the "big boys" came on t.v., all in a tizzy, and "reacting" to news
that had come over Reuters hours before.
The weekend aside, there DOES seems to be an eerie "calm before the storm" feeling around. We were actually discussing it at the coffee shop today.
However, most of our coffee shop speculations are pretty wacky anyway.
