Thoughts To Norway – For A Few Moments, Anyway…
I’m a bit behind with the news.
It’s all either doom & gloom badness, celebrities, propoganda or knee-jerk reactions, so for years now I’ve barely bothered to watch any news – let alone read a paper. It just makes me mad and ranty.
But this morning I spent a good few hours finding out about the bomb and shootings in Norway.
The bomb was shocking enough, but some man dressed in Police uniform went on a shooting spree on an island filled with children at a Summer camp.
Ninety or more confirmed dead so far. NINETY.
Whatever statement the gunman was trying to make, I just can’t comprehend him wanting to murder CHILDREN?! Killing adults, deserving or not, is sick and pointless enough – but why young children who haven’t even been alive long enough to corrupt or adversely affect the World?
Now THAT is real tragedy.
THAT is real news.
Oh, look! Some druggy bint of a scum-cunt pop singer has died!
That’ll be the end of Norway on the front pages…
***Already all the news channels have cut coverage from Norway in favour of showing picturs of the outside of Amy Winhouse’s house. For fucks sake, people! This is why I hate the press.
