A note to those who report the news

Dear News Reporter,

Paris Hilton is not news. It is entertainment news, yes. But frankly I could care less how much time she was in jail. I could care less if she got good behavior or not.
Yes, it does suck that she got to go home early and frankly, I do believe it was because she has money. But really, it sucks. Let's all say that and move on.
Please please move on! There are IMNSHO much more pressing news that I would like to hear about. And frankly if the trend to report celebrity news as actual real news keeps up, I will not watch your news programs anymore. This included, but is not limited to the topic Anna Nicole Smith's baby, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and a whole host of other celebrities. Yes, it is entertaining to hear about who has a new boy/girlfriend, or who is getting married or who is splitting up. But it is exactly what I said: entertaining. And thus it belongs on an entertainment news show, of which there are more than enough on my channel line-up to keep me up-to-date should I want to be.

Thank you,

BTW: the EEG results are in and they are completely normal. Which leaves me feeling better and dh scratching his head and wondering what to do next.

So glad for the normal results.

As for Paris, etc, my sister said her pastor pointed that our fascination with celebrity "news" is really just a form of gossip.

Not that I'm not guilty ;)
