All of this excitement is enough to wear anyone out

Sunday brought hours upon hours of pre-game prep for the Super Bowl.

Plus, the past few weeks have been consumed by party debates leading up to Super Tuesday primaries.

And let&8217;s not forget yesterday was Fat Tuesday, Lent begins today, the Reporter is trying to wrap up the editorial content for our special Profile edition to come out at the end of this month.

Not to say, I have a ton of laundry to do.

Phew! I can&8217;t even imagine the long list of things consuming the time of every one of you.

We all live busy lives, so why is it that big media wants to consume our time with the newest update on Britney Spears?

Is she in the hospital? Is she crazy? Should her dad take over her money? Why does she talk in a British accent?

Does anyone else think this is ridiculous?

I&8217;m so tired of sipping my morning coffee, enjoying &8220;Good Morning America&8221; or &8220;Today&8221;, only to have it interrupted by stories of someone whose life has no impact whatsoever on my own.

The only way the paparazzi will stop is if we stop buying the US magazines with Brit on the cover or turn the channel when &8220;Entertainment Tonight&8221; does another shocking story on Britney shaving her head.

Give it a rest already. The poor girl is never going to get better with all of those cameras in her face and we will never see more worthwhile stories on Paris, Lindsey or Nicole &045;&045; wait, I mean poverty, the war and healthcare.
