Gain so low

Entertainment has won, beyond anything; logic, news, information, critical thinking, the bottom line has become what can keep us interested long enough to hold us over to the next thing. There's nothing acutely wrong with that, unless it's what becomes all that matters. Unfortunately I think that may be the case, especially for generations that continue to live in the immediate and exclusively tangible age.
As a diversion from work and the repetition of life, we have to find peace in the "arts" but when the constant chatter of fail videos, reality tv and pedestrian indulgence are just that, gratification of the three year old inside of us demanding and impatient as ever, then, well, that's when I put my foot down and say, yes, I've become an old lady.
