This week’s talked-about topics, ranked by importance (10 = extremely important, 1 = completely trivial fluff)
10: Egypt (especially if you’re Egyptian or a foreigner stuck in Egypt)
9: Massachusetts collapses under the weight of built-up snow. Okay, not the whole state, but damn close.
8: New efforts to undermine federal abortion funding by altering the definition of rape. I wonder if these guys would still back that idea if I were to slip them a roofie?
7: Continued work on anti-bullying efforts. I went through that crap all throughout school, and I wish adults had been even half as concerned.
6: The proposed smoking ban in Boston’s public parks. Tell you what, smokers: you stop throwing your butts on the ground instead of in trash receptacles and then we’ll talk about your right to light up in a public park.
5: “Darth Vader Kid” from the Volkswagen ad. Not important, but it is cool that a kid with a pacemaker (yes, a pacemaker) has become part of our pop culture consciousness, at least for a while.
4: iPhone is now available on Verizon. How long will it take for some annoying flaw to pop up and set off what seems to be the traditional firestorm of first-adopter gripes? I think Apple includes with every product a free test of one’s patience.
3: Lindsay Lohan, in trouble again. Is anyone surprised anymore?
2: The Super Bowl. Oh boy, a bunch of overpaid athletes won a game!
1: Christina Aguilera screwing up on the National Anthem. Like that’s never happened before.
