A media wag (another one!?) once said, "Thank God for the First Amendment. If it weren't for a free press, how else would we learn about injured racehorses and runaway brides?"

It ain't even started yet. Wait for the 'empathy suicides' at the fun-heral and memorial mob.

John, the Obscure, thinking that Jonathan Swift was an optimist.


Unnn...'swifi'; swear to belly button lint.

Michael Jackson? Didn't he die or something? Old aids, wasn't it? Hell, he was fifty...

Huh. I thought that I'd reported on the death of the only Michael Jackson worth noting, about 2 years ago. (R.I.P., Beer Hunter.)

I count 5 solid stories to the right of importance, if their headlines are to be believed. But only the fluff and more fluff make it above the fold.

Only four of the fifteen stories have even the slightest chance of affecting my life or the lives of anyone beyond the people personally involved in them.

We have built an information system that can find out and tell us about just about anything we care to learn.

How fouled up is our species that peeking into people's private windows is what we choose to do with it?

"Only four of the fifteen stories have even the slightest chance of affecting my life..." and I think that's one of the reasons those stories are so popular. They require no real thought, no meaningful opinion, and no real commitment. They're "safe".

A soldier kidnapps and Norks running wild but yet MJ is still top ticket. It is a crazy world.

Robert said...

At least 12 people have committed suicide worldwide
as a consequence of MJ"s death. DOOR.ASS.SLAM.

Average global IQ is marginally higher.
