As for myself, I think it’s big news when a member of the United States Senate introduces a resolution to censure the President. I think it’s big news too when the America’s outsourced prisons are exposed as outside-the-law centers of torture protected by kangaroo courts. Then we could go with the news that the Arctic Ocean ecosystems are starting to collapse and the ocean’s chemistry is undergoing radical changes that could threaten all life on Earth.
But that’s me. Not everyone else sees things as I do. So, what’s the rest of the world interested in today? Here are the top 5 blog searches, as reported by Technorati:
1. The return of The Sopranos to cable TV.
2. The Bukit Batok video store, which is, apparently, a setting on Missing another TV show.
3. SXSW, which is a music festival in Austin, Texas. Ray Romano will be there, and he’s had a show on TV, so you know it must be important.
4. Origami – which is a new little computer device from Microsoft. You can watch TV on it, I think, or at least little movies.
5. Here’s Bukit Batok again! Bukit Batok is, apparently, the name of a neighborhood in Singapore, a nature park, and school, as well as a video store.
I hoped to feel better, knowing what people are looking for online instead of paying attention to the disintegration of the democratic foundations of the American government and the accelerating disarray in our planet’s biosphere. It didn’t work.
