What is it about our society that we so eagerly express bullshit empathy, it most often comes across as patronizing and ultimately demeaning. I see this happening throughout western society and even here on a2k. Do do we think we are fooling? ourselves I guess.
Because it's all for show. There are people out there who truly care, but you're not going to find them on the more mainstream airwaves. This is why I stopped listening to talk radio, and NPR-- it's phony crap. No TV either, it's an energy drain.
I wonder why a mother would put herself in front of the media so soon after the discovery of the child's death. Maybe she wants the attention? Maybe she's so dazed she's not all there. Nonetheless, you'd think she's have some decent counsel, such as a spouse, or relatives, to guide her.
