Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Tuesday, March 22, 2005

My wife has some really good observations, yet she is reluctant to join me in blogging. Thus, I have decided to paraphrase something she said today.

"Native Americans are crying racism because the school shootings in Minnesota aren't getting the coverage that Columbine did. Michelle Malkin says it's because Columbine is essentially a suburb of Denver, whereas this place is 250 miles from Minneapolis. I have a different theory.

I think it's no longer new. Columbine was unprecedented. Now, it's been done. It's so 1999. and it's old news. We've become numbed a little bit by Columbine, and it will take something bigger to surpass it in news coverage. Since this was smaller, it is not as sensational."

Such is the news cycle in the 21st century. I will add though that I hope we never see a bigger school massacre than Columbine. I shudder to think what it might be like.
