Donald Sterling is a racist. He's been banned for life from the NBA. Yawn. I've been listening to CNN for the past 30 minutes. I've heard how the tapes are illegal. I've heard about how he has cancer. I've heard about the crisis in the Ukraine. And now they are touting Anthony Bourdain's new show, Parts Unknown. What I have NOT heard, however, is ANYTHING about the over 230 Nigerian school girls who were kidnapped from where they slept at their school by a radical Islamic group. Now reports are saying these young girls are being forced into marriage with their kidnappers. God knows what other atrocities are being committed against them.
For a month straight, all we heard on CNN was the fate of the passengers on MH370. Over 230 people perished (probably) on that flight. I couldn't change a channel without hearing about that story. I'm not a cold, hard-hearted person (shut up, I have a heart in there!) and my heart breaks for the victims on that flight and for their families. The NOT knowing just has to be devastating.
But that's not the only thing going on in the world. Don't these kidnap victims in Nigeria, these innocent school girls, deserve the same amount of media coverage?? Those girls are (hopefully) still alive! Where is the public outcry? Where is the offer of government help from other countries to find them? Where is the outrage? What is the difference between 230 Nigerian school girls and 230 Malaysian Airline passengers?
My heart is breaking for those innocent girls, while CNN, once again, shows yet another Donald Sterling story. And another breakdown of the MH370 story.
Welcome to Snarkfest
Welcome to my snarky corner of the web. Join me as I discuss everything from wine to chocolate. There may be a few other topics mixed in there too. I talk a bunch about my amazing offspring, 19 and 17. I sometimes go on and on about my secret crush on the amazing Mike Rowe. I talk about things that irritate me or things that make me happy. Sometimes I just talk to hear myself talk. Feedback is always appreciated but please make sure it's respectable. No nudity or profanity. I'm the only one allowed to be profane. But any and all snark is welcome and appreciated!
