Lindsay Lohan's Plight, Revisited

Once again, Lindsay Lohan finds herself in deep legal trouble.

Now accused of stealing a $2500 necklace, she will have to stand trial for this crime.

Honestly, when is enough going to be enough? Who has decided that these notorious celebrity cases warrant the viewing public's attention in any way?

Lohan has not even made a worthwhile film in quite some time (she was even forced out of one production in part because of previous legal problems).

This voyeuristic craving to see a form starlet fall so far is simply wrong.

Not that I have so much compassion that she should not be held accountable for any crime that she may have committed . . . And that is the point, MAY have committed. She is still innocent until proven guilty in our legal system. Certainly the constant prying of the media into this mess is not only making a mockery of the legal process, but subverting this very crucial principle. Who are we to judge , or rather, prejudge?

Besides, are there not more noteworthy news-events taking place all over the world, as we speak? We are witnessing right now in the Middle East a surge, a tidal wave of unrest in which long-oppressed subjects are asserting their natural rights, demanding that their national governments treat them like citizens.

This widespread demand for liberty impacts the citizens of the United States greatly. We should be paying close attention to the events taking place on the other side of the world, not the petty thievery of a failing actress, and even more petty introspection of the vapid, ubiquitous media.
