You know what? As I write this post approaching 9 a.m. Central time- this wedding has been over for nearly 4 hours now- yet the foreign pomp and circumstance still pervades American news channels.
Never mind there's cursory or less coverage of one of the deadliest tornado outbreaks in American history (approaching 300 dead in 6 states)- near-record fuel prices- a VERY shaky economy and the politicians making it worse- a still dangerous Japanese nuclear plant meltdown (in a quake that killed more than 20000 people)- terrorist attacks both abroad and in American political chambers- etc..
No- I guess the heads-that-be in America's news media figures why try to address those or any other of the myriad other stories affecting our daily lives- let's assault America with a fairy tale wedding in another country.
No wonder this country is becoming increasingly ill-informed....
