In Greek mythology, a common favorite is the story of Icarus. A son of the great inventor Daedalus, Icarus was given to throws of passion when it came to his work. For those of you who may not know the story I will first take a moment to lament our ever-deteriorating public education system; and give you a brief synopsis. Icarus invented wings sealed with wax and, although warned by his father to not fly too close to the sun, became intoxicated with the freedom of flight. Before long he lost track of where he was and, sure enough, his wings were undone by the heat of the sun which sent him plummeting back to earth to meet his tragic fate.
With this metaphor clearly in mind, I want to take a moment to say that this Newscast was, in my opinion, still an improvement on the one before. We seemed to make the best of the packages and ultimately we did not fall to earth in a ball of fire and molten wax – so to speak.
