i was in belen, new mexico this week for work. naturally, the hotel had cable, and naturally, i watched it. i was immediately reminded of why i am so glad i don't have a tv any more. the first thing i saw was msnbc with a split screen. one side was footage of them emptying that lake in aruba looking for the missing girl. the other side was a loop of her and her cheerleading squad bouncing around. i saw this or some version of it on most of the major cable news channels at least once, usually more.
