I feel compelled to share a word or two on the topic of the Kardashians. This family grabbed a neck-lock on reality TV after one of the daughters "accidentally" lost track of a sex tape. You cannot go through a supermarket checkout line now without seeing them on the cover of something. The latest bit is the breakup of one of their marriages. Not sure if the breakup is real, or if the whole thing was engineered for publicity, since everything else about the Kardashians seems targeted at publicity.
Back in the day, a celebrity was a novelist, a singer, an athlete, a thinker, a builder. Now the definition has been enlarged. You can become a celebrity through no real merit now. You just have to know a few tricks. Partying without panties can help.
Apparently the two Obama daughters have the guilty pleasure of watching the Kardashian TV show on weekends. Apparently the President is not a fan, but Michelle is willing for them to relax from their schoolwork as long as she can watch it with them and ask a few questions to keep it real. I understand that thought as a parent- it is really important for parents and their kids to watch television together. Lots of bad stuff begins when a tv gets installed in the kid's bedroom- very bad idea there. Ultimately, my parental conscience says- how did these girls grow up as people who would actually be interested in this show? Our two would never have even wanted to watch it, so we never would have had to work on discouraging them.
And about that marriage breakup of the Kardashian woman (I can't recall which one, perhaps because I don't care?). There are reasons why marriages break up. Not caring about the marriage as much as being a celebrity- that would be a really good reason for a marriage to break up. If you dedicate your life to celebrity status, how do you know that the young man is marrying you for you? Maybe he wants to be a celebrity too? That's one way to get there, stand on the shoulders of someone who already climbed the tree.
I've said enough. I am losing interest at this point- and I hope you are too. :)
