Guess what! National Say No to Lies Week (my very own invention) is February 10 through February 16. Join me in saying no to people who prey on and take pleasure in the misfortune of other. Be sure to tell your friends -- have them swear off, too! Because if people of conscience band together, we CAN win the Truth Wars against the Gossip Whores!

Calling Britney or any of the others a trainwreck I'm betting is a truthful statement.

Somehow I've managed to miss all of the gossip today.

does ANYBODY really give a rat's ass about these idiots?

I have enough to do managing my own life without trying to manage someone else's.

I don't watch tv, or read trash, so I can join your movement.

perhaps next we can schedule a national "shut the hell up" day; a day of silence for everyone. anybody wanna try that?

I share your dirty secret and as penance I will declare a moratorium on reading any gossip for the next week. Calling out our flaws may be a baby step in overcoming them. That said, I do notice that as I age and the grist for the celebrity mill stays eternally young, the interest does wane.

I'm solidly in favor of National Say No To Lies Week. I am also very interested in National Shut Up Day, though I suspect many people wouldn't last an hour. (I would expect an amnesty provisionj for genuine emergencies.) I went to a workshop in which a small group of people spent four hours neither speaking nor making eye contact, while observing their own reactions.

I would not be opposed to National Shut Up Day, with two caveats: 1) we tell Norbert that "shut up" is mean, so could we call it A Week of Silence or something like that? and 2) people would need a work exception, because it would be impossible for people to forgo work just so they could Shut Up.

But I'm not doing it if Myfanwe doesn't do it...cuz I'm not giving her a week of having the last word.
