Anyone else finding it a little disturbing . . .

. . . that Sally Field has just turned 60 and is doing Boniva commercials? Gidget! Sister Bertrille! Sybil! Norma Rae! Osteoporosis!

. . . that OJ Simpson has the nerve to crawl back out from under the rock he's been under since he killed Nicole and Ron? And that he's getting so much exposure?

. . . that so many Katrina victims got screwed over by the insurance companies? (CNN has a great documentary about the folks in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi - so dispiriting!)

. . . that Katie Holmes has a weird "Body Snatchers" look in her eye since she hooked up with Tom Cruise?

. . . that even Henry Kissinger says Iraq is unwinnable?

. . . that it's almost December? Where the hell did 2006 go?

I'm not a whole lot disturbed by any of this (well, except for the Iraq and Katrina things). Still, each one is kinda niggling the back of my brain.

The whole "it'salmostDecemberandwherethehelldid2006go" is disturbing to say at the least. I'm nnot sure if this has to do with my age, but it seems that the years are passing by faster and faster, while I get less and less done.

As for OJ Simpson I think that these days it doesn't matter if the publicity is good or bad. Anything sell...and that's disturbing in itself.

Kate and Tom's wedding btw was a real joke. It wasn't even a real ceremony. They paid millions to get married in the Sentiologic way. How silly is that? Not to mention disturbing :p

Disturbing? Indeed! Somehow in the last couple of years, our entire world has been slowly turned upside down. Shifting values. Morphed mores. Higher esteem for crooked politicians and those who commit capital crimes than for those who educate our kids and protect us from the bad guys and save our lives from disease and accidents. And if "esteem" is the wrong word, then try "reward", "merit", "marketability"...
