Matter of priorities

World War III is getting heated up. The housing bubble is about to burst. We are facing a possible depression that will be so bad it will make the other one look "Great" in comparison. Oh, and I almost forgot... Global warming is a fact, unstoppable, and about to bring a sea shore to a location near you. So what is everybody talking about?

Anna Nicole Smith just died.... Fuck it. I give up...

BTW, here's what she was know for and why she is so important today.

"Through the '90s and into the new century, Ms. Smith was famous for being famous, a pop-culture punchline because of her up-and-down weight, her exaggerated curves, her little-girl voice, her ditzy-blonde persona, and her over-the-top revealing outfits.""

As individuals, people on a whole don't feel they can have influence or impact on things such as global warming, WW III, or Depression. People can feel accomplished in mourning the death of a person, i.e. Anna Nicole Smith. This is America, we weren't taught to deal with big issues, we were taught to ignore them and they will go away.

as sombody else said it: why do we enjoy watching people self destruct?
this seems the basis for most of our reality tv, sombody else screwing up, being humiliated, making bad decisions or generally acting stupid.

i think i found the root of all realty tv evil, talkshows. you know that opra and the like were creating dramas in the same way rtv is doing today.
