Get over it...

So today in the world a bunch of really bad stuff happened: some people died of hunger, other were killed for protesting against human rights violations. Honduras is still a miss. People are being killed in China because of ethnicity. People in Iran are being arrest for supposedly participating in “unlawful and revolutionary protest”.

Children are dying of hunger in some place far away because of stupidity. The US bombed the crap out of Swat. In Sri Lanka, people (including Canadians) are being held in horrible re-education camps because the government suspects them of being Tamil Tigers.

In some other place, natural disasters have rendered people homeless. The world economy is still on the brink of collapse. North Korea is firing missiles all the time.

But who care because the MOST IMPORTANT news of the day is that Michael Jackson died… like two weeks ago.

To everyone that produces the evening news, the news websites and newspapers: Please, get over it!

You know, I partially concur.

The death of Michael Jackson was news. Considering the extent to which he was a western cultural touchstone, it was fairly big news.

But enough is enough. It's time to get on with the real world again.

it was BIG news when it first happened I agree.
But two weeks later and he's still in the headlines? That's what I take issue with.

In other news, Jacksons' untalented sister thinks he was murdered for his fortune.

Apparently, she doesn't know that he was broke.
