My e-mail In-box, flooded five days running,
Hardly gets a note on Saturday or Sunday morning.
Those with points to make, or things to sell,
Must take the week-end off as well.
More amazing, MSNBC, and FOX, and NPR,
Hot all week with urgency, calmly close their doors.
Is the world less troubled on these weekend days?
Are fewer bombs exploding; fewer speeches made?
Or could it be that weekday “news” is somewhat hyped,
And weekends – sports obsessed – not so highly stereotyped?
