All Show No Blow

Daily Draw: Grand Etteilla Tarot ~ Justice

Once in a while when walking through a store I come upon a bank of TV monitors all showing a talk show with two or three women screaming at each other over some sadsack of a man.

I'm reminded by this card they are encouraged to act like idiots because it brings in eyeballs and $$$'s, but this card, subtitled Solomon, makes me wonder if anyone on those thousands of shows has tried putting the child or the other person first. Have I? Solomon is thin on the ground these days and life seems all show and no blow.

"And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.
 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king,  O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it." 1 Kings 16-27. ~ Solomon (Jedidiah) 1000-931BCE

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
