Does it really matter?

A couple of years ago there was an excellent golfer who got caught cheating on his wife. This, like many other such events, turned into the greatest news story of the century. Why? If this man was just any other Joe walking the streets, this "news" would not have even made a 1" blurb in the local newspaper. What was it about Tiger Woods that made this so important that everyone around the world had to be told. Who benefited from knowing this (other than the bank of lawyers that was employed)?

Why are so many people so interested in knowing the intimate details of someone else? Just think of what we could accomplish if instead of sitting down and reading the gossip rag - Teen Beat, National Inquirer, World News....(take your pick of garbage) people stood up and did something useful like talk to their children. The first huge benefit would be all of those trees would not have to be ground up to be wasted on this trivia. A child might know that someone in the world cares about them. Someone might go outside and help a little old lady get  her groceries home, someone wouldn't have to be hiding their face from the bunch of parasites who are drooling over the thought that maybe they would get a picture of them kissing a friend on the cheek.

"It is our right to know, they are public property" will often be heard from the masses. BULLSHIT! You don't have the right to know anything about that person that they do not outright tell you. Do the celebrities have the right to know where, when, and with whom you have sex with? Or is it non of their business?

Stop with the unimportant things. Pay attention to where you are and where you are going and maybe we will all get to where we need to be before we destroy ourselves
