Balloon Boy (aka BB, because it now nauseates me to use the word "balloon")

Really America?? Really? As evidence that America is going the way of the once-great Roman Empire (you know, that area with lots of ruins that doesn't even prented to be a superpower?) there is this bizarre media obsession with this freak family who wants to be on TV. Hey family - you were on TV. Big whoop. If you polled 100 people I bet you would find that lots of them have been on TV or in a movie at some point, even briefly. BB & co - take your 15 minutes and disappear gracefully. Media outlets - please allow this to happen.

There's lots going on in this country and in the world (both good and bad) that doesn't involve fame hungry parents who whore their kids out. Tune into the real news, or at least don't tune into the dumb stuff like BB. Listen to some music. Read a book. Have a deep conversation with your sister about why you're so screwed in the head (a personal fave of mine). Just stop paying credence to the BBs, Gosselins, Ocotmoms, unfortunate people in persistant vegative states, and Elian Gonzalez so MAYBE the media will clue in.

Rant over. Thanks for listening!
