I beg to differ. For almost two years, I've written a daily blog based on a news story. Recent events have sprouted my opinions and raised questions. If we look beneath the story, we can always find something to think about.
Today, one of the most endearing stories is about a cartoon character. Even if you haven't watched the Disney animation, you'll know about Toy Story.
Buzz Lightyear's catchphrase "to infinity and beyond" has been named the UK nation's favourite film catchphrase.
Why would the public like this phrase? Perhaps the absurd concept of a cartoon character thinking beyond the boundaries—that he would know about an expanding universe. Many writers contributed to Toy Story. Their combined creation draws laughter and thought from the audience.
So, don't just read a news story, give the subject some thought. That's where our power lies.
