This is just a short Christmas wish: Please tell the press flack who is no doubt getting huge sums of money for putting Kim Kardashian's name in front of us every day that we give up. We promise to put aside our penchant for real news about real people who do genuinely newsworthy things and concentrate entirely on someone who has done nothing except look pretty and used up electronic space teaching us nothing worthwhile except that money can buy attention that should be used for trying to make the world a little better.

Today, Google breathlessly told us that Ms K. just might stop using Instagram. Golly!!! That should stop the presses. The funerals in Connecticut? The Iranian rocket? Israel's condemnation by the U.N.? Nah. We have to pay attention to what's vital to our survival as a nation - Kardashian's habits on the computer.

Guess what? IRDGAS!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    ... because I'm not a multi-millionaire heiress of a hotel chain.

    Then they came for Lindsay Lohan, but I did nothing because I'm not a multi-millionaire actress who's been in jail so many times that I've lost count.

    Then they came for Kim Kardashian, but I did nothing because I'm not a multi-millionaire who's famous for being famous.

    Then they came for me, and I was pissed because it happened just when finally looked like I was going to be able to live my life without hearing anything about these damn celebrities anymore.

      ( OK, we only shot one of them- Buddy o' mine took out the other one with a sledgehammer. Very satisfying sound, that).

      I have only the very vaguest idea of who any of those people are.

      Well, except for you- you're lineatus.

    the Kardashians were on t.v. for about 5 minutes and she turned and said to me "they're really quite stupid aren't they". We then turned over to David Attenborough
