Media haiku

Fickle crowds switch.
Tired of Iraq-O-Tainment.
Just turn it off, please.

The war officially ended yesterday, by the way – not with any White House
pronouncement but with the decision by the cable networks to dump out of a
Donald Rumsfeld press conference to cover a California coroner talking about
missing woman Laci Peterson. Iraq? That was so three days ago. Local crime
rules once again. [WP]
