I am saddened by the loss of any human, but it is beyond me how the news media,including Fox, has made a 24/7 issue out of this when our congress is to vote today on an the horrible “Cap and Trade” legislation that will burden us all with major tax increases and job losses.
This distraction will hide the voting much to the joy of our Democratic brethren.
Reflective of our pop culture, and likely reflective of the overall lack of interest in things that are important, like cap and trade. Jackson was a towering musical figure and his death is newsworthy, but I tend to agree that the coverage was saturated.
What you said above is amazing considering the federal legislature is about to begin a series of bills that will burden us with super sized budget and deficits as well as drawing us into socialism.
I think our population has been dummied down as evidenced by Jay Leno’s ‘man in the street’ questions to random people who can’t answer “who is buried in Grants tomb?”
I hope all these bills fail.
And with all this focus on Michael Jackson, we get less about Mark Sanford. He sure writes some great email!
