Something Can Be Done About It
I’ve grown completely bored of all of the “NEWSFLASH” news that’s been plastered all over the net this past week concerning this compilation of 3rd-hand opinions and concoctions about Mr. Cruise, Mr. David Miscavige and Scientology that has been humorously referred to as a “biography”.
However, the MSN home page today took the cake for me once again, with the witty little sub-head of, “Slate highlights the juicy parts.”
This is like taking note of a 20-day old container of half-eaten Chinese take-out found in a dumpster, and wanting to “highlight the juicy parts”. It seems like the most undesirable and foul-smelling thing I can think of, never mind being a completely worthless waste of time.
The only interesting thing I could find in the MSN article was a link to the official statement by the Church of Scientology International, which actually gives the facts related to this explosion of archetypal media hyperventilation.
In any case, after reading this, I side with EW.com reviewer Mark Harris, in that I feel “…two seconds older if two IQ points dumber” reading my great source of “daily news”. I’m going back to reading my good book, Science of Survival, so I can better spot such rot before I end up investing 10 minutes of my precious morning and 65 watt-hours of my computer’s precious CPU time.
