What’s gone wrong? Can we pin it down? Is there an answer? Is it we the people? Can it be our elected officials? Do we really care?
Is it the way we entertain ourselves? I mean, who doesn’t like to watch someone else go down in flames? It’s the new favorite show, tune in tonight! Never mind the number of women Tiger Woods had “transgressions” with. How many people do you know that can hit a fire hydrant and then a tree and go to sleep on the grass without giving some blood to the police?
There seems to be a double standard with law enforcement — perhaps that’s what’s gone wrong.
The fact the news is covering what is going to happen to his vehicle over what is being done about the accident is mind-blowing. He was snoring when police arrived — again, our entertainment. For those in the public that can’t get enough, the next time a vote comes up on the death penalty or on bringing back public hanging, make sure you vote right away! It would be the ultimate crash-and-burn we’re looking for.
