Let’s see… revolutions against dictators all across the Near and Middle East. The Wisconsin capitol is full of protestors. The Space Shuttle program is winding down. No doubt your locality, like mine, has lots of important things happening that you need to know about.
And some of the biggest stories in the news (including on NPR) revolve around a drunken actor and a fashion designer doing dumb things in public.
Well, I’m glad the public knows how to focus on what’s important.
