I'm much more interested in Hillary Clinton's Chilis opening in Washington than whether or not Eric Cantor is allowed to listen to Barry Manilow at work.

Its a funny tweet. It's not a big deal. There's a few articles about ir. I'm sure they will be skimmed, and get views. They are also covering other stories simultaneously. I just don't see the problem.

The fact that something like this would take up space on a political news site/tv news/whatever over other more pressing incidents concerns me. And it isn't just this specifically, these quirky, meaningless stories get coverage all the time. Everyday. So yes, this on its small scale, isn't a big deal, and its probably not the best example of what I'm talking about, but it is tied to a larger problem of coverage.

A.O. Scott reviewed a documentary on Ed Koch yesterday. Talk about timing.

Paid rent today at Wells Fargo. I didn't have my ID or my WF debit card, and some how the process was faster than usual, when I couldn't identify myself. Doesn't make any sense.

I don't really care when its on websites since an quick article can be posted, and space is unlimited on a web page. Shouldn't be a feature story, and it isn't. I do agree a lot of frivolous is covered as big stories too much, though.
