Check out the sass and punch of this letter to Fox that a reader shared with me this morning:
Hey, FoxNews. Mr. Murdoch. All of you:
I see that Michael Jackson is still your headline story today.
How is it that you're not concerned that the House voted yesterday to pass the largest tax increase in American history and no one in Congress (yet again) even read the bill before voting on it? How about the 300 pages that the Dems dumped into the bill yesterday at 3:00 a.m., and that there was not a House Republican who actually had a copy in his hands as the bill went to a vote? Not interested?
But let's all get back to this freak of nature Michael Jackson - he's the real story here - the pillar of our Republic - the one who made this nation what it is - ah, yes, let's hear some more - for the next month or so as we wait breathlessly for the toxicology reports to come back.
I give up on you people. The last beacon of light or hope in the news world has succumbed to emotionally retarded adults who are stuck in an adolescent pop culture teenage hysteria.
Congratulations. Diana West is absolutely correct in her book "The Death of the Grown-up." You should read it and grow up.

Not a bad idea.
