About that story of the crack using mayor in Toronto ...

... yes Toronto, as in Canada.

Haven't heard of it? Then clearly you've not been watching, reading, or listening to the news.

So Google it. Or actually, don't. It will just lower your IQ.

Today--in the gym!--they had on CNN, including with volume (who works out to that?).

The story they were talking about was the crack using mayor in Toronto and his buffoonish brother, who happens to serve on the city council.

Incredibly, as they were talking about the story, CNN went live to a city council meeting where the mayor's brother was speaking passionately about why his brother should remain mayor.

Yeah, the guy who admitted to smoking crack while in one of his drunken stupors. That guy.

My question is, WHY IS THIS NEWS in the United States? And how does knowing about it improve my life? How does seeing it unfold live better my understanding of important events?

Isn't this just a crystal clear example of how even supposedly serious national news is now nothing more than celebrity, scandal, and nonsense (mixed in with drugs and crime of course)?

One smokes crack, the other? Monster Thick Burgers? (sorry that is a joke)
