Quiet dignity or Quiet Riot?

Rather than greeting the threat and mourning our losses with quiet dignity and stoic togetherness, the of display sentimentalism and symbolism has all the class of a Superbowl halftime show.

Two weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks, I’m watching "Who Wants To Be A Princess," and "Love Cruise."

It’s wrong to have a band named Anthrax, which has been making music for 20 years, but it’s okay to dress women up in skimpy bikinis for the enjoyment of some morally bankrupt Italian prince. Mayor Giuliani and President Bush did tell the public to go on with their daily lives, and this is the crap people would normally be watching. It’s an insult to the bereaved, and to the soldiers putting their necks on the line – is this the way of life they’re fighting for?

But hey, that’s showbiz.
