Once again, ridiculous coverage of celebrities has dominated the media. The situation in Iran was abandoned because Michael Jackson succumbed to his life style. North Korea took a back seat to the illness and death of Farrah Fawcett and the cap and trade bill was all but ignored in favor of the sexual shenanigans of Governor Sanford.
What we value is an accurate portrayal of who we are and unfortunately for this nation we seem to value the shallow and superficial. Is it any wonder we are in the shape we're in?
