People Make Me Sick

I've talked about my disgust with the way our culture is so obsessed with celebrities. Below are some perfect examples of that.
CBS
USA Today
FNC
CNN

The situation in Darfur has been going on for years. And while some people have addressed it, it's not until George Clooney starts talking about his trip to the Sudan that people really start to pay attention. That makes me sick. People have been pleading for help for years yet it takes a celebrity to get the media to sit up and pay attention? That's sad.

I don't care who talks or does anything. Just doing something is important. What is going on in Africa needs to stop.

One of the reasons I devoted time to a project on it in my classes:
