More Important Culture That Has Happened Since Deflated Balls And Snow

The following article will touch on worthy headlines people have missed out on since America has been mesmerized with 11 flat footballs and 24 inches of snow.

Now I understand we would all be pretty bored and miserable if we only read the news that we should. As the great Ron Burgandy said, “I just don’t know why we have to tell the people what they need to hear. Why can’t we just tell them what they want to hear?” But there definitely needs to be a line for ignorance in America. Distractions are nice because the world is tough to deal with, but people need to get closer to reality.

America deserves more than deflated footballs and snow.
