I have just been watching a national news program and the main item of news is the death of Whitney Houston. Why ?
How does the death of Whitney Houston take priority over serious world problems ? I agree that, for some people, Houston was an amazing singer. However, we need to keep a sense of perspective. The news is full of much more serious and important issues yet it gets pushed into lower priority by the death of a singer.
I think we need to examine the standards of our society. A society where celebrity takes precedence over real issues.
