Rants and Raves: This Week in Review

Rants

I may be wrong, but I think the press is going way too far in the case of Jaycee Dugard. The majority of news shows seem to be looking at dollar signs instead of what is best for this family. The morning shows begin each day with questions about her survival, and they almost seem disappointed when specialist say they are doing well, or they will do well, or even with the hard road ahead, they may have productive lives. They keep turning and twisting answers until they have the negative outcome that sells. Another news show reported the family is having to move often due to the constant threat of reporters. Paparazzi are stalking for pictures, and I think there will be a special level of Hell for them. Where is the humanity? Do we really need to see what they look like? There is a morbid fascination, and I am sure it will be huge when they are outed, but we should not allow curiosity to further damage the victims. Yes, it will take years, and yes, it is beyond horrible, now back off and give them a moment to come to grips with what is happening.

Jason Bateman is back!!! To be honest, I never knew he left. I love him in everything with his name on it, from The Hogan Family, The Sweetest Thing, Juno, and certainly, Arrested Development. He is one of the actors I want to find on my deserted island, and I hope he kicks Bradley Cooper's butt at the box office.
