Pandering Priorities


I thought that the Navy missile destroying the satellite in space was big news. A huge technological and engineering success. With its load of toxic chemicals, the satellite represented a serious threat.

WASHINGTON (CNN)
-- "Pentagon officials said they think a Navy missile scored a direct hit on the fuel tank of an errant spy satellite late Wednesday, eliminating a toxic threat to people on Earth."

It was a big story.
~
Larger that Roger Clemens and his wife on steroids.
~
Larger that Senator McCain having the hots for a lobbyist.
~
Larger than Barach Obama plagiarizing Gov. Duval
~
Larger than Manny Ramirez in Spring training.
~
But the news channels had it as a virtual asterist.... there's no doubt that many of you ill-informed Peeps didn't hear about it at all. But you heard about the other stuff I mentioned, didn't you?
~
I suppose that I should moralize here that this society doesn't have it's priorities straight, that it panders to emotional gossip, that it enjoys our weaknesses and frailties more than our accomplishments.
~
But I won't.... People don't want to see that shit on the Blog.
