Why Do We Care?
Once again, we parade our stupidity by celebrating people for playing a game, infusing sport with a significance that it could never support under any sane scrutiny whatsoever.
The crowds outside cheering the winning of a football game dwarfs the crowd of patriots who rallied for Occupy Wall Street, and is certainly larger than anything I've ever seen to support social justice, equality, healthcare or strong democratic principals. Is it any wonder our countrymen have become the natural prey of various mountebanks, shysters, religious fanatics and kooks? A sad and sorry sight, indeed.
