So, off I went to CNN. As I scanned the headlines, I imagined what she'd ask:
"Mommy, who is Anthony Weiner? And why does anybody care that some guy's engagement got called off? I think his name is Hugh Hefner?"Okay, maybe CNN isn't the best site for an 8 year old. I'll try Fox News. They're conservative.
"Mommy, what's this about a lady named Maria Shriver crying with a mistress? What are they crying about? And there's that Weiner guy again. What does 'sexting' mean?"I decided to scratch the plan to read the news. I'm not ready for her to know how our society works just yet.
My second EBIIT Hall of Shame Award will be shared by three recipients: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Anthony Weiner for behaving shamefully while holding public office and the media channels who continue to report every sordid detail when there's plenty of real news to focus on. All three parties need to develop a little more propriety. Shame on all of you.
