What do we find so appealing about watching celebrities like Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan unravel? Do we take pleasure in hearing about their pain? Do their troubles somehow make us feel better about ourselves? Or, are tabloid scandals just entertainment? Do you enjoy reading tabloid gossip?
I like to see people ruining their own lives and doingn things because they think it will get them attention. I like reading about this kind of stuff and I think this is all just entertainment.
Research shows that high school students are drinking and driving less than they were 30 years ago, and the number of people killed by drunken drivers is down by more than half. Still, about 10,000 people die each year in traffic accidents involving impaired drivers. Do you think drinking and driving is still a problem for teenagers?
I think it is a big problem for teenagers. People at this point in their lives are starting to discover things like alcohol. This is also the time they are starting to drive. Teenagers don’t always follow the law because they think they’re the bomb and they can’t gert hurt.
Do you like any television shows that have completed their runs? Do you wish those shows could come back with new episodes?
I liked the show flash forward. It ended without a finale and I’m angry about that. I wish it would come back with new episodes and start up again.
