Every once in a while, I read the news before I check my email. Many of the sources are overtly slanted and inaccurate. I have come to expect this behavior. It gives me an idea of what propaganda is being presented by various companies.

What I was not expecting was an overuse of modifiers. There was a movie review that was presented in the genre of a chilling novella. I believe it was intended to entice audiences and boost box office sales. The review was three pages of colorful repetition that led the reader to the following conclusions:

A) The author was paid to promote the movie

B) The movie was based on a classic novel

C) The plot follows three central characters

D) The author used a thesaurus

It is important to know one's intended audience. I am not the author's intended audience.

"Now, O Lord, my God, You have established your servant as king in the place of David, my father, but I am only a small child and do not know how to go out and come in. Your servant is among the people You have chosen, a great people. There are so many of them that they cannot be numbered or counted. Therefore, give Your servant a discerning heart, to judge Your people and to distinguish between what is good and what is bad, for who would be able to judge this, Your great people?" It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked for this. 1 Kings 4: 7-10
