A Devastating Repeat Cycle Dashes My Hopes For July

From the sublime to the ridiculous....Brian Williams built up my hopes to a breathless pinnacle of expectation for July only to dash them upon the excruciating rocks of a repeat cycle the likes of which we have not seen since, well, forget about it. With complete and utter disregard for not just Le Report de Cravate, mais moi aussi, Mr. Williams slung on the selfsame tie he wore on 25 June. This passable albeit casual tie of MS Windows blue with oddly skewed white squares with pinholed centers as its pattern is perfectly fine if one is making perhaps a nice set of cushions for the sunroom, or if one is whipping up a prairie skirt for one's niece who is in the Summer Theater production of "Oklahoma!". But as the Wednesday neckwear of NBC's national news anchorman, I'm not feeling it. Especially not when it's repeated so shamelessly.
