America's Train Wreck...this week...

For those of you reading this that know me personally, know that I am not prone to go around bitching about things over which I have no control. Today, I feel the need to set that conviction aside and let 'er rip. Two words: Lindsay Lohan. Four more words: My God in Heaven. The reason that I want to rip this chick a new one is that she intruded on my otherwise lovely Memorial Day weekend on three occassions. Twice she appeared uninvited during conversations with close friends and then she paraded herself across my TV screen, apparently running from a car crash. At first, I was about to loose it and scream who the hell does this bitch think she is running around like two dollar trailer trash and making a fool of herself? But I think a far better reason to loose is is why in the f**k do we care about her in the first place?!?!?!?! I mean really. Why do we care??? I would be fascinated to know the answer to that one.

This girl, barely out of high school, with no apparent higher educational aspirations, exists simply to party. Now far be it for me to poo-poo a party (I did just a bit of that myself this weekend, for which I am now paying the piper) but lets face it - this girl is headed 90 to nothing down a real dark path. I can't believe I'm about to say this but this chick is no Paris Hilton. Paris has famous parents and grandparents and is famous for ... well, being famous. Lindsay, on the other hand, is a "working" actress. I can almost say it without laughing... (oh god - no I can't) As an employed actress, she has a responsibility to show up on time and know her lines. Hundreds of people working on this film rely on her to be present as their livlihood. Not to mention, you would think she would have some respect for an actress with the calibur as Jane Fonda. Now she is uninsurable by any studio. And don't even get me started on the drug use.

But as inexcusable as this train wreck's behavior is, whats worse is that the American public is eating it up. I mean how else else can a no-talent, drug abusing, former Mickey Mouser command so much attention in the media? Something is seriously wrong in a society that is more concerned about her drug-induced car crash than say...a war, crime, or any of the other problems facing our beleaugered nation. But, no -- Lindsay and her ilk seem to be it. I guess we really do get what we deserve... Now I'll go back to being my no-complaining, sweet self.
