Truth Stranger Than Fiction

The news continues to get more and more surreal.

In the late afternoon yesterday, there was breaking news coverage of a shooting at the YouTube base in the San Francisco Bay Area.

When information broke that only the gunman (this time a woman) had died, it was amazing to see all the networks that were breathlessly broadcasting every moment as if the end of the world was upon us suddenly leave the air or go to regularly scheduled shows.

I’m sorry, networks, did the lack of death disappoint you all? Were you looking for 20, 30, 40 people perished from this incident? Are you that ghoulish?

Let’s just count our blessings that so few passed away – this time.
