Thursday is Turdsday
You know, I hate the idea that tragedies somehow put things into perspective and allow us to recognize trivial things in life for what they are? Please. Do we really need for dozens of innocent people to die to realize that most of the shit we worry about is insignificant in the whole scheme of things. You're just noticing that Tom Cruise hopping up and down on the couch doesn't really affect our lives?
No, joking about stupid little shit is how we get by in this crazy world of ours (I do anyway). Mocking the trivial allows us to focus the right amount of energy on things that actually matter. At least that's my excuse.
Still, you'd think an audience that is exposed to a healthy dose of beer commercials and lad mags would have a higher standard of beauty.
And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together, just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.Right. Because the other world leaders didn't care about terrorism. Because the UK has never experienced terrorism. Because world leaders shouldn't be wasting their time on African aid or global warming.
