- Tiger Woods drives his car into a tree.
- Serena Williams gets a slap on the wrist for acting like a 3 year old
- Chelsea Clinton is getting married
- Artists in Colorado want their green energy to come from somewhere they can't see it.
And that's just a smattering of the inane, the insane, and the pointless headlines that are on all of the news sites this evening.
Look, I understand that hard news needs to be leavened with human interest stories and some gossip. But it doesn't even take a slow news day for stuff like this to be on the Internet equivalent of a front page.
How about we reserve the news sites for actual news, and leave the fluff like athletes behaving badly, twits marrying twits, and hypocrites being hypocrites either to scandal sheets or to linked pages from the main page? I'd like to cut down on the cycles it takes to filter out the garbage and get to what is important.
