Did I miss another memo?  

I am so angry, I can not remember the last time I was this upset.

My cell phone, a Motorola V557, has a great feature. They call it the "Live Ticker" and it's like a news ticker that scrolls all time time on my phone. Currently, I've got it set to tell me about ESPN's top stories in NFL and MLB, CNN Technology Headlines, my local Weather and CNN Headline news.

Yesterday, I opened my phone, and was devastated to see that a 45 day jail sentence for Paris Hilton was important enough to be sent to my phone. Seriously, did I miss something? Why is this "headline" news?

I narrowly avoided smashing my phone into bits, and am about *this* close to shutting off the ticker for good.

I remember vividly watching CNN at the Y a few years back and seeing some crap about Beyonce in the middle of tsunami death counts. It's depressing that the personal affairs of celebrities make headlines, but, if they didn't, how could the American people go on living their happy, vapid, consumerist existences?
