MWC- 5- 09 - Do Ya Think I'm Sexy Pt 1 of 2

In a time when there is so much unrest in the world,the economy gone to hell in a bucket,why do people tend to find Tiger Wood's sordid affairs,or Jon and Kate Gosselin's troubles,who lost the most on The Biggest Loser,etc. so much more interesting?I,for one could care less,that Tiger Woods mom-in-law had a stomach ache or how many gal pals he's got.I really don't care about what Jon and Kate are fighting over.Is this entertainment,in today's standards?I remember watching tv shows that made me laugh because they were funny not because it alluded to a sexual innuendo,movies that were genuinely entertaining not some violent,blood speckled filth.Recently, I noticed an interest in my 2 yr. old,5 yr. old,& 10 yr. old grandchildren,of a certain prime time cartoon that started airing it's reruns in the afternoon.They would be playing and as soon as this show started coming on they'd all stop and run to the tv,even the 2 yr. old!I became concerned over the many antics of this show,including the dog gets on cocaine and the baby's filthy mouth and homicidal tendencies[wants to kill it's mother!],so now the tvis off at this time of day.What is this teaching?This kind of thing is not entertainment,,and neither is the sordid facts of people's lives the news.I was reading stories on Allvoices the other day and read a report by Contributor Asherkade on the state of things in Africa.Now that's a news story!Another contributor,ahol888 writes some fine sports news stories and covers a wide variety of other news as well.As any of you may know that has read mine,I'm into football right now and have covered other stories concerning other topics.Now I'm not giving advertisement to any of these folks or their reports,I'm just giving you some examples of news-worthy reports.I enjoy this site and consider it one of the finest on the web for getting out what you want to say.I'd like to say thank you to Allvoices and it's many readers and contributors for letting folks report their own news and views on the world and it's events.It truly is a unique platform for the ordinary person in an extraordinary world.
