There's an underlying problem here…

By the time you read this, the verdict in the Michael Jackson child molestation case will be news.
… and everyone's excited.

And that's the problem, my friend. That is the problem.

People find their entertainment in the most perverse pleasures. I understand this and I accept this. But when the majority of people in our society find their entertainment in things like war and suffering, it becomes a problem. When they're paying attention to this verdict, rather than what is going on with their government, that is a problem.

For you see, whatever verdict comes down it is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. It is the business of the court and of Michael Jackson and his family, and the families of those children. But it is none of yours. Your business is in how your government functions and what you are doing to make this world a better place and how you are living your life - you know, things that affect you and in which you SHOULD be involved.

At no time should you ever assume that the gossip that is now passed to us as NEWS is any of your business. There is a very clear difference.

And we've forgotten what that is.

And it's a problem.
