So I am checking out the US death toll statistics in the War Against Terror and I am bombarded by:
- a car advertisement,
- a jewellery advertisement, and
- an internet phone advertisement.
Not to mention there was a pop-up ad which my browser had blocked for me.
So my friend asks me why I hate advertising so much? And here is the answer. Some things are just tasteless and this is one of them.

If anyone uses Firefox (or the blogging sister Flock, like me), they got something called Adblock or Adblock PLUS…I use this all the time. No more ads, plus I am no longer bombarded by media influences after tweaking it for the first few days. :)
It’s understandable. Virtually all of our news sources have turned into an entertainment industry.
That explains it. I am sorry to say but I generally never visit American news sites. Hence my ignorance.
um you’re using the USA today. That paper is reminiscent of a Denny’s placemat – what did you expect?
