(From August 7, 2008)
So in the process of checking my email I noticed the following link: "Betty White Defends Golden Girls."
"The Golden Girls are UNDER ATTACK?" I thought.
The story indicated that the three remaining Golden Girls with functioning cardio-vascular systems were being called out for not attending Estelle Getty's funeral.
"Oh." I thought. "That's not such a big deal."
But before I knew it I found myself reading the COMMENT THREAD that accompanied the article.
I was a good twenty comments in before I had even realized I was doing it.
So here I was reading with no small amount of interest the opinions of anonymous strangers on a non-subject that one minute earlier I had been completely unaware of.
Is this of how little value my time and attention have become?
The internet is a dark, lonely, insidious kind of hell.
P.S. Speaking of old people, anyone else getting a bad Ross Perot smell coming off this T. Boone Pickens clown?
I swear to you, he is not to be trusted. I expect great evil from him in the future.
