Now why is this news?!?

Anna Nicole Smith died. And Fox news, CNN and pretty much any other new organizations have been covering it non-stop. It's on the news during lunch, it's even on while I'm at the gym burning off my 500 calories.

News? Really? Are you kidding me? I mean who really cares? Did she do anything to contribute to society? No, I don't think so.

So why are we devoting so much time to this? I think it says something about our society and the people we worship. We admire and worship people that are nice to look at but are generally selfish. They don't have to make the world a better place, they just have to prove that they are better than anyone else.

Sad. Why are we so devoted to beautiful looking people?

P.S. The Italian Prime Minister resigned. For some reason the news gods deemed this un-newsworthy.... Who knows why. .. I'm switching to the BBC.

No kidding! We are usually pretty pathetic about what we pay attention to, but this one seems off the charts. I am baffled by it. Good people die everyday. What's the obsession with Anna Nicole?

Seriously...peeves the heck out of me.

ick. i think the question is more "why are we attracted to people who have the potential to be beautiful on the outside but have decided to instead be trashy and completely ugly on the inside?"
