darkness at noon

Yesterday at lunch a former colleague was telling me about how the push in the newsroom now is all toward video. While he was talking, waiters appeared at the table next to ours, with a lit candle stuck in a cannoli, and sang “Happy Birthday” to the woman who was eating by herself. I couldn’t decide which was sadder: a woman celebrating her birthday alone or journalists being made to shoot video.
