Show Trial

It appears that we have another show trial on our hands. O.J. Simpson has gotten himself arrested.

What this means is that anything going on in the world that could actually affect people's lives is going to have to work all that much harder to scratch and claw and climb its way into the public consciousness. We will be entering another period (much like the last 5 years with Brittany Spears, Michael Jackson, Anne Nichole Smity, Paris Hilton) have filled the public consciousness, allowing Karl Rove and company to get away with murder.

I hope that I am wrong and the O.J. Simpson case (and all of the other celebrety tragedies) are fading into the back of the newspaper.

Though some social pressure to that effect would not be amiss.
