"Backward, Turn Backward, Oh, Time...

Headline: Levi Johnston knocks up another girl

Apart from the fact that this is not news, is none of our business, and I don't care a whit about Levi (with all due respect to the poor deluded girl), the crudity of the announcement in the press is depressing.

I am "uptight" you say, a Neanderthal living in another time, long past. Perhaps. But in fact I grew up learning manners and civility, and respect for others, and I still possess a greater appreciation for that than I do for the tripe that spews from the media today.

I can't watch the news anymore. I listen to AM radio to hear the "news" now--it just seems like the media is too concerned with garbage than they are about the real "news". And even then, the spin on everything is maddening. I just need the basics--weather, stock market, general national news, general local news, and sports. Gossip and "entertainment" is not what I want to hear.

You aren't uptight--it's insanity that surrounds us. And I'm with ya on this one.

Lin, like the fly to refuse, people seem to be drawn to muck. I wonder if they revel in the stuff, thinking it makes them look good by comparison, never realizing that rolling in filth makes them dirtier.
