So what have we learned this week, besides "Mike doesn't always meet his self imposed morning deadlines, so he ends up not posting anything for two days"?
Well, we've learned that the media really needs to take a long hard look in the mirror and see if it likes the reflection of a two dollar prostitute that shines back. If it doesn't, then they should realize that the handling of Natasha Richardson's death was a shameful exercise in paparazzi tactics and speculation the likes of which we have not seen in quite some time, if ever. Liam Neeson and the rest of the family should sue the living shit out of them. (Special demerits go out to TMZ for getting the story wrong the most. You seriously expect people to treat you with respect when you go out and do this type of stuff? If you can piss off Tom Hanks, then you know it's time to scale it back a bit.)
We've also learned that sometimes the people that make us laugh are also the ones that make us think. The two are not mutually exclusive, and generally work well together...so long as they are equally balanced. Also, say what you will about President Obama's Tonight Show visit, but at least the man is making an effort to bring this country back to the prosperity it had before. We just might have to work harder at it than we thought. Besides, would you rather have someone working their ass off to get it right, or would you rather have someone sit back and let it all fall where it may?
With those lessons learned, I'm going to go hide under my desk now. Have a good weekend everyone!
