Maybe its because of our history, but once again, a criminal (a dead one at that) is making making more headlines in the news than the fact that we have major hospital reform!
Founded as a country of criminals, we want to know them, watch them and even laugh with them.
One of our highest rating tv show right now is Underbelly. The whole shows premise is on the underworld of criminals, drug smuggling and hits. We laugh at a comedian impersonating a serial killer.
We live in a strange country where there the celebrity of criminals takes precedence over reforms made by our goverment. I guess it will continue, hey, I'm blogging about it!
