Is This What We Really Care About?

Looking through Google News is a part of my daily routine. I couldn't believe that this story was really making headlines today:

Now, I realize that this story comes from the keystone of journalistic quality: Us Magazine. But still, to have that on a main page is absolutely ridiculous.

It makes me think about the other day in class when a professor of mine told us that nobody in his class got the answer right about the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan on a current events quiz. The question involved the city of Marja, a place nobody could recall.

If that quiz had asked who is the famous couple whose son child just lost a tooth, however, I wonder how many of those people would have gotten the answer right.

Is that what we really care about?
