On my Yahoo homepage there is a news events scroll bar, with several pictures and captions to choose from.
Today when I looked over the newsworthy items, the first two caught my eye, more for the sheer lunacy of their juxtaposition than anything else.
Japan Faces Nuclear Crisis
As I looked at the image and reviewed in my mind all that had been happening in Japan over the last week, my heart broke. I thought of all the families who had lost loved ones in the tsunami. All the Mamas literally fighting for the very survival of their babies. And now radiation? What else could possibly happen?
Bachelor Makes Final Decision
Unless the bachelor has made a decision as to
how to provide food, clean water, and shelter to the millions of Japanese citizens in need
how to contain the radiation leaking as we speak from the damaged housing of the nuclear reactors
how to identify, clean up, and notify next of kin for the thousands upon thousands of men, women and children killed by the tsunami
then I honestly do not want to know what decision he has made that is so earth-shattering.
Don't get me wrong. I like shallow, mind-numbing TV as much as the next gal.
And hey, I'm all for arranged marriages, I mean, who isn't?
All I ask is for a modicum of sensitivity and common sense when deciding where to place this news nugget.
