The state of Virginia had a tragedy today. I’m calling for all 5 of my faithful viewers (do I have that many?) to NOT WATCH OR LISTEN OR READ any of it (especially if it came from Katie Couric). It only encourages the would-be psychos who believe they too can be famous by imposing their dreadful death wish on others.
Feel free to share with your friends, family members and pets. The media makes a lot of money when stuff like this happens (trust me, I’m the wannabe marketing research chic remember?) Ratings increase due to the constant use of "worst ever", or "four days from the anniversary of..." and "the previous record was..." They announce that the current calamity is numero uno at something. Come on? Is this a contest?
In my opinion, a one liner headline is sufficient. If you’re a relative or friend, you will hear the important stuff. AND FOR HEAVEN SAKES DO NOT GIVE US THE NAME!
(That’s me on a rampage, in case you haven’t figured that out yet).
