30 Days of Things More Worthy of News Than Kim's Divorce

I'm a little ticked.  Ok, more than just a little.  So ticked that I want to swear like a drunken sailor.
Kim Kardashian is all over the news.  Again.  And I don't give a s*%t.  I don't care that she is getting divorced.  Or that when she spoke wedding vows in front of the world that she wasn't willing to give it even 80 days worth of a try.
I do however want to throw up every time I hear the $10 million price tag on her wedding.
How many dying children would that save? From death???
How many little girls and boys could be rescued from the atrocities of sex slavery for $10 mil. ?
How many families' lives could be saved in the Horn of Africa, dying, dying because they don't even have water to their names??
How many precious lives of orphans could be rescued into loving families all over the world if they had $10 mil worth of adoption grants to help them out?
How many bottles of formula would that buy for starving babies in orphanages in Ethiopia?

Does it make you want to vomit too?
Are those precious lives getting intense press coverage?  Is anyone as outraged about children dying and being horrendously abused, as they are that Kim's getting divorced?  We should be.  I want real news, in the news.  Do you hear me Fox, ABC, CNN, E!, NBC, CBS, Google News, Yahoo News, MSN News?  We want real news.

So, since I didn't do the whole blog every day in October thing, I'm going to blog every day in November.  30 News Worthy Pieces of News and/or People. Which just so happens to coincide with Orphan Awareness Month.  Want to join me?


  1. I couldn't have said it any better myself. It absolutely disgusts me the amount of money we as Americans spend on things when (like 2.5 billion dollars on Halloween) when others could live well off of the margins of what we spend.

    And I look forward to your 30 days of News Worthy Pieces of News!!
