Don't cry for me, journalista

Posted on Sun, Feb 8, 2009 at 10:29 AM

Don't wait for the Interwebs to become your sole source of news. This morning's Associated Press lineup of the top news on the Yahoo News website lists the 10 most important stories in America. According to the AP, the most important story in the world at 10:30 a.m. was the Ozzie wildfires.

Then comes the stimulus charade, and something about the Afghan war.

After that, the seven most important stories on the AP's mind include:

* Alex Rodriguez' imperiling his gonads by shooting up with steroids.
* The Hudson River "miracle pilot" applauded on Broadway.
* Whitney Houston making a triumphant "comback" (sic) at a party.
* Harrick steals win at Bud Shootout in Atlanta [whatever the hell that means].

Pray that Max Brantley never dies, folks.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
