How many times can you watch the same stuff over and over. I feel like im giving the people that do these things exactly what they want(attention) so I try to avoid as much of it as possible. Seems like it gives anyone that wants their 15 minutes of fame the incentive to do something like this. To hear these news crews talk is weird because it isnt a tragedy to them its just another assignment. They all know each other because I suppose they just travel from tragedy to tragedy. Oh well people must be watching so I guess it will continue.
The media blitz on all things is just scary. I'm certainly not getting used to it. It get's absolutely worse every year.
This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.
