Buddhism is a religion without a god or a creed, yet it's a way of life for four hundred million. It seeks
no converts and strives only to relieve suffering. This blog offers no high teaching but only practical observations, mostly about the daily news. You can write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most Popular 2011 News Story: Casey Anthony or World Economic Crisis?
The Practical Buddhist Presents:
MSNBC is reputable, if slightly left-leaning. Sorry Rachel. I think we can trust their survey of the most popular stories of 2011.
Before you look, take a guess. Yes, Casey made the top five. Why? She is prodigiously unattractive, self-absorbed, and barely escaped conviction for killing her child. Why does she fascinate so many? For that matter, why is the death of Osama the runaway leader, over the Japanese earthquake or the Arab Spring?
