lol Chalky. I had to Google George Plimpton, because I didn't know who he was. :(

But I do agree with you about the George Zimmerman case. It's way overblown in the media.

I think there's other agendas behind this, too.

Apparently, the media thinks it's the most important story of the year. They never shut up about it and it all seems so surreal. The media seems to love stirring up and dividing people in America and this incident is proof of that.

Personally, I think this is a very important story and it's very tragic. My thoughts and sympathies to all of the families of the deceased killed in this train accident.

That being said, it doesn't seem like the media where I live found it to be important though, as I didn't even hear about it until like 3 days after it happened. Every time I turned on the news, read the Orlando Sentinel online, all they were talking about was George Zimmerman this, Trayvon Martin that. It was really getting old and they're still carrying on about it TODAY. How long ago was this verdict? I mean, seriously?

While I'm not a huge fan of "Glee" or shows/movies similar to it, I did find it sad that Cory Monteith passed away at the age of 31. He was the golden boy of Glee and had a huge gay following, not to mention the teen girls that loved him. A friend of mine recently told me he was the best actor to come out of Canada in a long time and I can't say I totally disagree. I think it's even possible that Glee won't last very much longer without his presence, as he was the "talent" on such a mediocre show. He was very underrated and didn't have enough time to prove himself.

The raw talent and likeable persona of Cory Monteith should be the reason why the media has been so obsessed with his unfortunate death. However, I suspect it's because he died of drugs and that always seems to be a big draw with the media.

Lol. I always find it interesting when radical conservatives and/or Republicans pull the "morals and standards" card in an attempt to belittle liberals. It's nothing but typical shaming tactics that never work on me or any other libs that I know. It generally just adds more fuel to the fire.

Recently I was called a liberal bully. How the tides have turned I guess. Even though I don't think I'm a bully at all, I do find it amusing how they don't like getting the same treatment they bestowed upon us during the Bush era. What comes around goes around.

Now let's take a look at a few of their "morals and standards".

1---"The Affordable Care Act" is a travesty and will destroy our healthcare system.

What they are really saying is poor people don't deserve healthcare, because they're lazy and parasitic. Let them die...

2---Marriage has always been a heterosexual institution. Most of us don't care if gays have civil unions.

What they are really saying is that gay people aren't worthy enough to find monogamous love and we want God to ourselves. We think church and state should be separate unless it benefits us in some way.

3---Global warming is just a theory and a false one at that.

What they are really saying is that they don't want the government to implement anymore strict environmental regulations on their big, greedy corporations that destroy the environment. The mighty dollar is more important than future generations.

And so on and so on. Blah blah blah...

Meh, I generally don't watch inaugurations and I didn't this time. I'm just happy that it wasn't that radical Republican, Romney. That would've been scary.

To be honest, I find it surprising that the media has been jumping on these trials involving murderous women and alleged murderous women as of late(Jodi Arias and Casey Anthony). Generally, the media doesn't focus so much on violent women, just men. I guess they have finally figured out that women can be just as evil as men.

That being said, I didn't find this trial that important at all. I think it received so much attention because of how brutal and violent Jodi Arias was towards that poor guy.

When this sitcom first started years ago, I had a hard time getting into it. It seemed boring when I watched the pilot and an episode here and there from the first season, so I stopped watching it. A few years later, I tried watching it again and I loved it. However, I was kind of lost because I had missed a few seasons, so I watched the first 3 seasons on DVD just to get caught up one rainy weekend.

I would highly recommend the show. Solid cast and writing and it's going into it's last season this fall. The sitcom's writers still have me guessing about the mother, I have no idea! Good show!
