As a person who has never watched one episode of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', I have to admit that I do not understand why these people are 'reality stars'. (Their reality, my reality, two different realities, that's for sure.) I see nothing about them worth emulating, and yet they have all these people hanging on every detail of their lives.
I don't get it.
But if you follow any news sources at all (and I do), these names keep popping up. You 'know' about them whether you're interested in them or not. So today, I was reading the national news and there was a breathless pop up: 'Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker vow to destroy each other completely: Is this healthy love?'
Okay. Why does this question even need asking?
While we are on the topic of news, here's a headline from our local newspaper. 'Naked Man Fights With Police'. You have to understand that Sugar Grove is a tiny town of just the slightest bit over 600 people. It will take a while for him to live that down, I expect. Initially, the lead line read 'A Sugar Grove man is behind bars after he fought with naked police during a domestic incident.' That went around facebook like lightning. Everyone was curious why the police showed up naked to a domestic incident. The paper quickly corrected the lead line, but still, reading the article, it says that the police were grabbed by "the heck".
What the heck???
I still have questions.
