WHAT I'M READING TODAY.. THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY..
A very interesting story is appearing in SLATE today..A former stormchaser now thinks the idea of chasing severe weather is unethical..
I will be upfront: I love watching live storm coverage, especially hurricane and tornado reports. But I equally think news forecasters who are paid by their employer to go into the storm is unethical. If one does it himself or herself, I think it's based more on a passion.. I always think back to when Vince McMahan made Owen Hart get hoisted over 100 feet above the wrestling ring, and then he fell to his death.It's a tough call..
Perhaps it could also be said that 'ghost hunting' is as unethical if not more so than storm chasers. If you believe in ghosts, that is..
Truth is scarier than fiction.. A Greek Satanist has been arrested over his sacrificial killing of a homeless woman.. Papageorgiou, the son of a retired actor suffering from heart troubles, was allegedly planning a second ritual murder to coincide with the summer solstice on 21 June..

Too bumpy.. I am getting a bit tired of looking at entertainment news and being deluged in "MILA KUNIS BABY BUMP" headlines.. We get it.. she's pregnant. And yes, Ashton is going to be a dad.. And that said, Demi Moore is older now than she was when she had her baby and saved the world from ending in the SEVENTH SIGN..as is her ex who was dead in SIXTH SENSE but alive in real life, and saved the world from ending in ARMAGEDDON. So what have you done Ashton? You were DUMBER than dumb but discovered the BUTTERFLY EFFECT before you were one of the MEN..
And now you're preggers with MILA, or Meg. Depending on your taste.
Enough baby bump, 'media.' Enough..
