In the news
    #3454212 - 12/06/04 01:09 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm reading this article on CNN.com about that football player Tillman, who died in friendly fire in Iraq. There's been like 15 articles about this one guy who was killed, and I can't help but feel like it's a bit ridiculous that the only reason they're paying so much attention to it is that he was a pro football player. There are people dying in similar accidents EVERY DAY over there...you don't see a million articles about them. They're re-opening an investigation into his death and everything. Don't get me wrong, I feel awful that he died in such an awful accident, but shouldn't a normal, every-day person that never played sports get the same recognition? Are they any less important? The media pisses me the hell off.
*end rant*

maybe the country needed a celebrity to die so that more people will want us to pull out of iraq. Maybe it is a master plan.

if anything the tragic death was spun to invoke patriotism more than anything else.
tillman was living the proberbial "american dream" he was a professional athlete in his prime and probably made a few million in the NFL, but he gave it all up to fight for freedom, he's a modern day patriot.... :blah: :blah: :blah:

he was killed by friendly fire in afganistan, he was hunting for bin laden...

Ha biO, that's funny shit. Good laugh.


--------------------
Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
