This pretty much sums up America in some ways. Just look at the image to the right and take that in for a few seconds.
A news story about Tiger Woods in a car accident is more popular than a story about some lunatic killing 4 cops in cold blood. What. The. Fuck?
Can someone explain to me why this society is so fixated on "celebrities?" The number of "reality" shows should really drive this point home... everyone can't wait to get their 15 minutes and will do anything to get it.
Two examples: Balloon boy crap. They said it was all to try to get their own reality show (even after appearing on one already!). The two people that crashed the White House party said they wanted a reality show.
Come on people... this is ridiculous. Extremely.
