The only time that I remember more than a couple of days of mention was when JFK was shot, in office. This thing has gone on for over a week, and they are just now getting round to putting him in the ground. There were several presidents in there that were ACTUALLY elected, and who actually did something positive for the country. Is my memory faulty?
I mean, I understand that of course the newsotainment industry has grown all outta hand, but don't Britney's blackouts and Tom's indiscretions, and Jennifer's what ever rate more coverage than the multi funerals of a very mediocre guy (at best) who happened to be considered by most hacks at the time to be innocuous to fill a vacancy?
Now that the cat's out of the bag, and we all managed to learn when the 3000th troop died, can we move on?
