I would not have heard about Ferguson if it were not for the 24/24 CNN coverage after the 24/24 coverage of the Malaysia plane shot down. CNN needs such stuff to free itself regularly from coverage that ensnares it and makes it sound ridiculous.
But it really does matter what CNN does, outside the US people do not give a shit about Ferguson. Well, maybe not; they cover it among the news, news that CNN seems only to eager to avoid so as to dedicate to navel gazing in Missouri.
This year we commemorate the start of WWI in 1914. D day in 1944 (twice in France as we just commemorated the landing in Provence, acknowledging all the help we got from Africans). Plus a few less momentous ---4.
We celebrate that Rosetta has met with a comet after years of planning. We are getting ready to meet with Pluto soon.
We are worried by Ebola. We are devastated by ISIS. We are clueless about Gaza.
And you are asking me to worry about a bunch of chavistas, from both sides, in Ferguson? Gimme a break! Send them all, the blacks, the liberals, the cops, the governor, the whatever to Kurdistan.
