Warp Society

We are a warp bunch of people.. Those of us in the good old USA.
I wonder about other countries… Not the 3rd World ones as they
don’t seem to have time for the media rises and falls. But does
Britain, France, Russian people have the same warpness that
we seem to have with what is going on in our own country to
our fellow citizens?

What am I talking about? The attention we pay to the likes of
Michael Jackson’s death, Lindsay Loman’s court hearings and
of course the latest binge is Charlie Sheen. Dateline, 20/20,
each of the early morning shows…seem to showcase these
antics. Yet each time we lose precious life overseas, fighting
a war that none of us wants… These precious men and even
women.. get barely a mention in their own paper. Never mind
the National media. How warped it is that? The closes we get
is Sunday morning when at the end of a show, they have how
many, who they are, where they are from, who passed that week.
Pretty sad. Well, at least ABC does that. But pretty sad, that we
as a nation, don’t take a moment of silence each day we lose
some of our troops. They at least deserve that.. especially when
their funerals are not being honored.

Absolutely! I couldn't agree more. Why we are subjected to all the nonsense news is beyond me.
