    I would like a definition of the word "news"
    Why, can someone please explain, did I have to find out about an absolute bloody mess in Iraq today from Aljazeera English? And why did I hear about the absolutely heartwrenching Supreme Court decision from my school's internal bulletin board? Despite the fact that I check and a few other news sites on a regular basis (which for me means every 5 minutes)

    Because the major news sites were busy letting me know at exactly what time the VT killer wiped his damned ass on Monday morning - that's why.

    There is information I would like to know about what happened Monday. I think it's really important to how everyone views what happened to know that this boy had a "manifesto," and that he was clearly a very sick individual. Sick as in - needed treatment.

    It does not, however, have to come with an entire website's worth of links into a timeline, and interviews, and video clips of mourning students, and hypothetical explanations, and finger pointing, and speculation, and and and and.

    170 people were killed in Iraq today. I'm sorry - it's now 230.

    The Supreme Court thumbed its nose up at medicine and at women in general. George Bush commented on the decision:
    The Supreme Court's decision is an affirmation of the progress we have made over the past six years in protecting human dignity [like this ... and this .... and this] and upholding the sanctity of life [like here .... and here].
    These things are also important. Yet, they have absolutely no airtime.

    I see no justification for this deluge. None whatsoever.
