Baby Boomer Shout-out

Media Watchdog, barking.
Media Watchdog, barking.

The media watchdog hates sloppy news reporting, cheesy editing, and young punks who think 60 is old.

As reported on by Gary Hamilton, via Huff-Po.

This story is about a Brazilian DJ school for grandparents.

Describing one student as SIXTY-TWO YEARS OLD, Hamilton practically squeals with awe. Apparently, it’s just so—so—phenomenal that a man THAT old could? Or would? DJ.

Hamilton’s unconscious ageism is annoying, but it’s the sloppy journalism that sends me ‘round the bend. He describes the students as “elderly’, a dicey term. It really depends on the age of the writer, the tone the editor wants to set, and begs the question: how old is old? What if elderly starts at 65, or 70? What if someone 64 was writing the article, would 62 be so awesomely elderly?

Perhaps the editor could have assigned an age appropriate reporter to cover grandparent DJ school in Brazil—certainly there are thousands of journalists in their 60s who could be grandparents, and they would have a different take on it, don’t you think?

Bottom line: would you rather get your news from a rookie, or from a more seasoned human being who accepts as normal that people SIXTY TWO YEARS OLD have jobs, shop, go to movies, and try new things, such as DJ school for grandparents?

    All is not lost. Chickens are indeed the hesadrt livestock to train guardian and herding dogs to because the chickens do all the right prey moves to say, Eat Me! But, even a confirmed chicken killer can be retrained to become an excellent guardian and herder. I have done it repeatedly. You should read the story of who was a puppy of ours that went to someone else when she was young, got no training and came back to us a total disaster. With a lot of hard work I was able to retrain her and it was well worth the effort. With Kita I had to use a remote collar. It is very rare that I’ve had to resort to that level of training. I think this was because she had been off the farm for so long and missed critical development and training time here on the farm. With the other dogs we train them from puppyhood. They learn No! , Drop , Gentle and other words as well as simply being instilled in the culture of the farm by the older dogs. I suspect that through lengthy remedial training possibly with the collar, you will be able to train your dog to not harm the chickens but rather to protect them and not to eat anything you don’t approve of. Note that you’ll probably want it to hunt rodents and other pests. These are a large part of our dog’s diet just as they are in the wild. Thus don’t over train.
