As you know, I really don’t like to stray much from the original point of my blog, but sometimes I just have to. With all that is going on in the world today-terrorism, wars, poverty, domestic violence, education woes-you name it, I wake up this morning and one of the lead stories on the news is that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting divorced? Really?
Now don’t get me wrong, I hope that each of their children are safe and can be shielded from the media circus that has most certainly descended upon them, but really folks, who cares? Do we need people on the news offering insight as to how this is going to play out in court and trying to tell us who is going to get what and for how much? No!!!
Every country on the face of the earth has much more pressing issues that need to be dealt with rather than the latest saga of Brangelina. It is truly sad that this is what makes news, anywhere on the planet. If you are that bored and feel the need to feed into this nonsense I have a few suggestions for you:
- First and foremost-TURN OFF YOUR TV!!!!!!
- Read a book, any book. Biography, fiction, non-fiction, historical-Anything.
- Listen to music. Once again, it doesn’t matter what type, listening to music has been proven to help you decompress after a long day at work.
- Write a story or a poem. Better yet, write a story or a poem about Brangelina.
The bottom line is this-Take a stand and don’t watch this nonsense when it appears on your local news station (or national). Is their life that important to you? Please tell me no.
Indeed a well thought post. It is the gossip that takes most of our energy and time and just drains it out of us.

I am way more interested in the lives of my families and friends than personal problems of people about whom I could care less. Great post.
Yes, it’s ridiculous! And shocking, what are people thinking???
