Can somebody please tell me why I am supposed to be interested in the dating/marriage/divorces of total strangers? Why is the public inundated with the mating habits of a bunch of people with more money than sense?
Half of the headlines on the internet news are about so-and-so breaking up with whatchamacallit. Why would I care? In a culture where couples swap mates like the rest of us change underwear, what is there to be excited about? In all cases I feel very sorry for any children affected, but the adults? No... I'm just sad that another man or woman has demonstrated a lack of commitment.
Wars are going on. People are dying from malnutrition. Important legislation is under consideration in our country. And all of that pales next to the story of Jon and Kate. Pathetic.
