Marrying the old with the new

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I work with my TV on as background noise and had the Oscar broadcast on as Jimmy Kimmel chimes that critics should be sterilized.

He’s supposed to be representing ABC with this skit and then implies that Meryl Streep looks like a drunk elementary school teacher before stating he does not make fun of people. The stars all make appearances in beautiful outfits, that can be loud. Yet, the loudest presence is from the latest snowstorm.

The Oscars opened for the 13th snowstorm of this season and just as Kimmel can’t properly present, nobody can bank snow fall removal. With reports of six or more inches of snow, I chopped ice and moved old snow to make room for new just as Hollywood chops out the old creative to make way for the new.

Kimmel describes Streep as old drunk school teacher, but what about new darling Jennifer Lawrence? There are many youthful nominees and Tom Hanks was left out, while a few young’uns are right up there. I see the old snow and ice like Kimmel’s bull and I see the new snowfall as over anticipated bull.

I pick an old actress with an upstart young actress to be like old snow and ice with new snow, for I see our society making it all so fleeting. It’s fleeting and yet so serious, for as the snow can damage our physical lives, actors can damage our society’s very fiber.

Yet, as snow can inspire through its beauty, I see actors both old and young can be inspiring. For magic happened, after a beautiful little black snowflake is awarded. It’s a classy tribute to Hollywood’s fallen followed by U2 singing for Mandela. The love fest starts with Ellen DeGeneres tweeting a star group photo. It’s wonder love with happy stars grouped together, including Jennifer Lawrence seemingly sitting on Meryl Streets lap.

It’s all joyful for Jennifer since it’s much better to be sitting on, rather then draped over Street’s lap. It’s a wonderful general camaraderie of the stars, old snow and ice married with new snow. And I could retract, not change
