Celebrities Return to a Chastened America’s Front Pages

by

Did you notice that a lot of the news this morning is about celebrities? “Morning Joe” has Pete Hamill and Peggy Noonan discussing Chris Brown and Rihanna. The Jon Stewart-Jim Cramer fight has been covered not only by us, but to a fare-thee-well in normally star-averse venues such as The Atlantic, Talking Points Memo and BusinessWeek. Front page news also is Anna Nicole Smith and her boyfriend who has been charged with over-saturating the unfortunate starlet with drugs and causing her death. All this unseriousness can only mean one thing: THE BOOM YEARS ARE BACK, BABY! Yee-haw, we’re a nation of rich idiots again! Come on, Wall Street, seven come eleven! Happy Friday the 13th.
