A Question

Thank goodness that the media is willing to cover Duane Chapman's attempt to insert himself into the Gabby Petito story. Just when the media was reporting what Gabby's family had noted in a press conference -- that there are lots of "missing" people ignored by the media -- we are saved from the distraction of reality by a convicted murderer, turned "reality star." Just think of the potential of Brian Laundrie joining Dog's bounty-hunting team!

Yet this social decay demands more. The American public's "need to know" requires a joint press conference with Chapman and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, a match made in a social septic tank, in case Brian is hiding on the Jersey shore. And where is Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, to discuss the cultural implications of the case? How is the public's appetite for truth to be satified without her insights?

that I have absolutely no idea who these people are, other than the Person of Interest.

And I would not be surprised if he was lounging in some obscure motel, watching porn on the TV

I can't be critical of Alana Thompson because her life was chosen for her by Mama June, or whatever her name is. I honestly don't know too much about her, but I think what Mama June did to "Honey Boo Boo" was sort of a form of child abuse.

Dog the fame hunter nauseates me.

The "tastes" of our society are disgusting. And to think my parents were afraid of the future of
my generation.
