Imagine a world without celebrity gossip

If we spent less time talking about Britney Spears ……

*The dramatic fall in gossip would lead to a gigantic reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, and global warming would slow.

*The media would have to find something else to fill their magazines, websites, and talkshows – say the Iraq War? Crises in Darfur and Somalia? Healthcare for children?

*With all our extra time, we could actually research the Presidential candidates and cast informed votes in the primaries.

*Maybe people could fill the profound silence by listening to the perspectives of minority groups, such as people with disabilities.

Can you really blame the media for doing their patriotic duty of not telling us what's really going on in America? You can read about Megan Williams real life tradgedy on my blog... dawgoregon.blogspot.com

If only... to be sure. I miss the old days when news was (mostly) news. To some degree, that's where blogs, like yours, fill the news gaps, I think.
