could this happen in a motel near you? (stay tuned/read more)

In the aftermath of the recent prisoner escape and murder of a law enforcement officer, various on-line news web sites offer up photographs of the motel room where the suspects were arrested. Unmade beds and the remnants of carryout fast-food strewn about the nightstand do not begin to accurately depict the story of characters involved. A personal tragedy has occurred and we are shown images that could be found in any number of houses, apartments or dorm rooms around the world.

Between the media flocking to where the Georgia runaway bride-to-be was performing her community service by mowing grass and then reading in today’s paper about the South Korean dropping dead after hours playing online games(which I read first heard about two days ago, so why the delay Charlotte Observer, slow news day?) I guess I’m not surprised, just disappointed(again) with the ‘news media’.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

    I was laughing at how they were reporting that one of the mattresses was turned sideways and part way off the bed– as if the hotel room were the crime scene. We’re apparently interesting in just absolutely anything.

      Beyond the news(if you want to call it that) content, the frightening part is that so many accept it and look forward to more of the same.
