In a hand basket......

If we killed all the TV executives tonight, there would be a live reality show from Hell by breakfast.
And it would get a 37% Nielson share.

Sometimes the shallowness of American culture is easy to spot, if not hard to believe. Britny, Paris, O.J., Jackass, Big Brother, Survivor, you name it, there will be slacked jawed, Doritos munching Americans sitting on a couch taking it all in. The latest trip down the hill towards voluntarily mental retardation was on the television the other night in the form of "The Moment of Truth"
It seems little Miss Peroxide here was willing to ruin her marriage, and it would seem, her life for some quick TV money. If you haven't seen the clip I will spare you having to watch a woman hooked to a lie detector say she has been unfaithful, and would leave her husband for her former boyfriend, just to win a million dollars. Wow. A million dollars for your marriage, your good name and any self respect you may want to keep hold of?

I don't usually quote the Bible on my blog, especially to make a point about some one else. I don't have any room to talk in the matter because I am a sinner and fall short of the Glory of God, but I must break out the King James translation for this one. It's Mark 8:36

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

What indeed?
