Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

All news has always been local-centric.

If you chance to look, you will further find, that even in your own area, if a Star Power person trips over a crack in the sidewalk and tears their trouser cuff, it will make the news at ten, but if a poor person is murdered by his neighbor in the same night, the story might be ignored entirely, or given a two line mention just before commercials.
