I'm Wondering About Priorities

For the last 3 days, all the news headlines have been about Michael Jackson's death. I agree that his death is worth a news mention. He was very talented, albeit disturbed. But 3 days of headlines? Surely we could realize that other stories are more newsworthy! The United States is tracking a North Korean ship which may carry fissile materials. North Korea has threatened war if it is stopped. Protests in Iran continue, and the death count could go into the hundreds as a brutal regime cracks down. I've even heard rumours that the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Church is planning on revealing the Ark of the Covenant, which if true would be the story of the century. So what does the news devote itself to? King Michael is dead.
