Media Frenzies

As Missing Blond Girl Stories Fade, Gas Costs Take Center Stage

On any given week, it seems that the 'media' focuses in on some story that supposedly is an indication that the end times are near. You know, shark attacks in Florida, missing persons (when they are 1) white and 2) female...blond helps too). Now with the Natalie Holloway story (sad, but sadly not unusual) getting a little long in the tooth, it seems that the new crisis de jour is high gas prices. I'm waiting for the story of the desperate soccer mom who had to sell her kids to the circus so she can fill up her SUV. Panic, Panic, Panic...

Experts say rising gas prices spur thefts, violence
