I wonder - So Who Cares...

about these things so much:

Pop Tarts: Paris Hilton Turns to God

Baby Is Born to Mary Cheney, Daughter of Vice President

Reality Check: Jordin Sparks Wins Sixth Season of 'American Idol'

Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck Engage in Raucous On-Air Feud on 'The View'

Angelina Jolie Tears Up Over Late Mom in TV Interview, Says She's 'Holding on to My Family Really Tight'

As to have made them among the 'most read' stories at this morning? Is Fox for real, are these really among the stories most read by people who have visited the FoxNews site recently? It makes me feel sorry for my fellow citizens. There are, I think, just so many other more important things to think about, to read about, and to act on, than what I believe is this fantasy land crap. I guess though I must be in some sort of a minority because as Fox points out, these are among the "most read" stories.

I would have thought though that Americans would have been much more interested in reading about:

Military IDs Murdered GI

Is There a Hero in Your Family Tree?

Bush to Hold 11:00 a.m. ET Presser on Iraq

Islamic Militants Defy Lebanese Ultimatum

Jobless Claims Post Slight Increase

Iran President: We Will Grow Nuke Program

Corzine in Buckle-Up Ad: 'I Should Be Dead'

Guest Worker Plan Slashed in Senate

Or to have watched this video:

Taliban spring offensive MIA?

These things seem so much more important to me than do those in the first list I gave above. There isn't, I would guess, much more for me to say about this, except maybe that the lack of interest in really important things amazes me. No wonder terrorists can attack us unimpeded, no wonder our borders are over run by tides of the dregs of humanity, no wonder violent crime can soar so high in our nation's capital, no wonder our rights can be trampled upon on a daily basis - we (on the whole) are mostly too busy with our heads buried up the asses of fantasy land celebrities while life in the real world goes only checked on by those few who would face reality. What a shame.

All the best,

Not just lots of guns, lots of political commentary, flowers and animals too. I do tend to like to be able to own and shoot guns though. I think they truly are a great equalizer when someone else wants to do harm to you. I am not the type to turn the other cheek when someone is trying to hurt an innocent, unless that is to take the proper stance while aiming. I think if more average people had guns, society would be safer and politer. Besides that, it is lots of fun to go shooting at the range.

All the best,
