Is pop culture getting smarter? - April Avison

Since it became wildly popular a few years ago, reality television has annoyed me. I wondered why people would waste their time watching such crap.

Where the heck are you Romeo? - R.h. Joseph

Long desirous of impaling the cretin who employed the magnificent conclusion of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony to induce a Pavlovian response in cell phone drones, my reaction to the dumbing down of the glorious language of Shakespeare in high school texts had me searching for an Elizabethan pike upon which to hoist the black hearts of the philistines responsible.
