I watch reality TV and cyber stalk celebrities every now and then. I flip through trashy magazines. We all do it - but no one really cares, right? I used to think it was just a way to waste time when I was bored, but in light of the "in-depth coverage" of Manti Teo's fake dead girlfriend or Oprah's "riveting exposé" of Lance Armstrong's lack-luster steroid use, it feels like maybe we DO care about these things... That prompts a post.
Four dead in Benghazi and we still don't know details.... but a college football player kills off his cyber-girlfriend and AMERICA DEMANDS ANSWERS.
Obama refused to continue the Bush tax cuts and millions of Americans lost money from their hard-earned paychecks... but Lance Armstrong CHEATED and lost his shiny trophies!
This is a small post, but it's seething in disdain for America's apathetic culture and obsession with celebrities. I'm going to watch the Bachelor this week, but I'll read the news and care about real life, too. Hopefully some of you will do the same.
