Big Brother Racism

Each day society seems to hit a new low. Today, its this... Big Brother has become a moral barometer for the society it claims to represent. You don't believe me? Check out the news stories.

It seems that a celebrity (Danielle Lloyd?) in the Big Brother house in Britain called for Shilpa Shetty (a Bollywood star) to return to her native land. Lloyd also opined the eating utensil choices for Asian countries such as India and China.
This "row" now involves the Prime Minister and has cost the TV station some sponsorships (though it seems to have increased the viewership). By the way, if anyone can clarify the term "row" in British slang, please, comment this post.

Anyway... the point of my post is to introduce a new feature to my blog. I figure I'll write a weekly commentary on societies new lows. I'll call it "Hell in a Handbasket" (since that's the direction and mode of transportation for society in general). If you have any ideas that may trump this, let me know.

By-the-way... if this feature had been created a few weeks earlier, I might include Donald Trump's and Rosie O'Donnell's recent discussions into each other's character qualities and the appropriate expectations for a beauty pageant winner.

Your input is always appreciated. If you see something that makes you empathize with God's choice to flood the earth and rebuild society from a floating zoo, let me know. Please, reference your material so I can include any appropriate links or allusions.

I was just passing thru but love the Hell In a Handbasket idea. I'll be watching for them.

I've decided not to post my Hell in a Handbasket articles here. I've created a whole new blog just for articles detailing society's downfall.

See the "Hell in a Handbasket" link on the right.
