Deifying the Dead

WHY are we so intent on making icons out of scum?
There's a biographical film coming out soon on Anna Nicole Smith and it supposedly glorifies her as a tragic heroine. She was just a drug-addled, opportunistic, manipulative nincompoop. But once someone dies we forget they were scuzzballs and everyone is intent on talking them up (see JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Michael Jackson, etc.) Yeah yeah, the others were talented but they were still scuzzballs. But due to the superstitious belief that we can't speak ill of the dead, they suddenly become cleaner than Mother Theresa... or we excuse away their bad behaviors.

Pork Rinds I'm on a high protein, low carb diet and decide to grab some pork rinds... except I accidentally grabbed the "spicy hot" ones... and I'm driving down the road, windows open, munch down on one of the rinds, which shatters in an explosion of hot spices that are blown back into my right eye. So next I'm driving, my right eye closed in agony, trying to find a place to safely pull off... Well: I don't have to tell YOU about it. It happens to you all the time, right? Right?

Everyone is up in arms about the Verizon wiretapping. This has been going on for a LONG time. In January 2007 the government stated that it believed it was entitled to warrantless email searches and that was under Bush was the Patriot Act was the National Security Letter where anyone (or anything) could be subpoenaed by the government and could not tell anyone else about it. This wasn't reported widely but it finally was struck down as anti-Constitutional in March of this year!

It's time for us to wake up before it's too late!
