Britney Spears shaved her head!

This is not the lead story on CNN.com, but it is disturbingly close to the front of the queue. Does anyone really care? It is all just to distract people living in wealthy western countries from the fact that another hundred or so people died in Iraq, another fifty kids died of starvation in Somalia, and a thousand other human tragedies around the world. But if these events were covered extensively people would actually have to stop and think about the world, jolting them out of their sheltered little existence.

Other than that, have a good weekend.

I take issue with your comments Mr. Chase... My baby's mama decided to raise awareness of cancer by shaving her head. Good for her!
