Not a Good Day in the World

Brad and Angelina are getting a divorce.  Nobody is particularly surprised.  Although they’ve been together for over a decade, and have kids, it is Hollywood, after all.  They have tons of money, jobs that allow them to meet lots of other hot people, the hottest people in the world, people who get paid excessive amounts of money for being hot.  Acting ability may play a part in it but, seriously,  Angelina Jolie is not Meryl Streep. She has the career she has because she’s hot.

They have options, they have temptations, and that’s the way it goes.  It’s his 2nd divorce, her 3rd.  It probably won’t be the last for either one.

In other, darker, more horrible, but equally unsurprising news, a racist cop has shot and killed an unarmed black man and been caught on camera.  As frequently as this happens, do you ever stop to wonder how often it happens off camera?  This time it was in Oklahoma, and the victim was on his way home from a community college class when his car broke down.  He could have used a bit of police assistance, he deserved a bit of police assistance, that’s what the police are supposed to do, but instead, the officer just shot him dead, while his hands were in the air, while he was posing no threat at all.
In a twist to the tale, it was a lady cop.  A young, pretty, smiling, white lady cop.  She should spend the rest of her life in jail, but probably won’t.
Actors divorce.  Cops get away with murder.
