If Tom Cruise says it, it must be true!

So now Katie Couric will investigate whether Tom Cruise might not be "on to something" when he talks about the "evils of anti-depressant drugs." My already low opinion of her just got lower, if that is possible. The way the media pander to stars is certainly not journalism and it is certainly not "news". These morning news programs are hours-long infomercials for movies and books. They ought to market themselves that way.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
