This week’s talked-about topics, ranked by importance (10 = extremely important, 1 = completely trivial fluff)
10) Free Egypt! At least until some meddler comes along to screw things up for them.
9) The Cape Cod Commission approves regulations for the siting and review of onshore wind turbines. If only we could harness the limitless power of righteous indignation from Falmouth residents. We wouldn’t need the turbines anymore.
8 ) Senator Scott Brown comes forward about being sexually abused as a child. This is a bold move that could empower other people to speak out (and give heartless jackasses on the liberal end of the political spectrum fodder for cruel and insensitive jokes. There’s a special circle in Hell for them).
7) The GOP continues its efforts to undermine women’s reproductive rights, because the quality of life for the living is always so much more important than the rights of the unborn those women will be saddled with for the rest of their lives.
6) Borders is closing six Massachusetts stores after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, including the stores in Hyannis and Wareham. This is a sad day for readers. Also, on a more personal note: great, the two stores I go to. Doesn’t that figure?
5) Rick Santorum’s “Google problem.” Not important, but funny. Oh, karma, you scamp. (Disclaimer: if you don’t know what “santorum” is, according to sex advice columnist Dan Savage, you might not want to follow up on this topic. It’s kinda gross.)
4) The upcoming Royal Wedding. Why is anyone excited about the son of a foreign figurehead getting married in a wedding that will cost more than the GDP of Rhode Island?
3) Charlie Sheen, who has become the Lindsay Lohan of the Brat Pack generation. If only that were in any way a compliment (and why in the world is HE offering HER advice on how to behave?!).
2) The ridiculous outcry from Justin Bieber’s fans over his loss to Esperanza Spalding in the Best New Artist category. Girls, a couple of things. One: in five years, after puberty hits, you’ll be over Justin. Two: Milli Vanilli won Best New Artist once.
1) Anything Lady Gaga does. Her music is catchy enough, but good lord, her insane need to be outrageous is getting OLD. She’s like a masculine version of Marylin Manson.
