I’m probably not going to do very well on the “nearly” aspect of my version of Wordless Wednesday. And I’ll blame it on this article published today in our local paper. It’s worth clicking on just to think about your own reaction before you keep reading. It’s a very short article…
Goodness knows there are many important issues that we can pay attention to, devote our time to, be concerned about, and get on soapboxes over. Worthy causes. Behaving as if today and now is ours for the taking with no regard for others’ future on this very unique planet is the epitome of stupidity.
But where does one draw the line?Â At what point is a sensational side show supporting a cause?Â And do they actually think this educates anyone, which would be the whole point of bringing public attention to it?
It was crude, public masochism.
Oh, and certainly I’m convinced that a fish is more important than this.Â Or this. Or that spending time to worry to the extent demonstrated by PETA about what it feels like being “hooked” should be focused upon more than this or this.Â Or this.Â Or this. Or what is happening in Darfur.Â Or Burma.
Perspective would be a great thing, don’t you think?
