TheWeekholeView: December 5 through December 11, 2012

Here each hole starts on Wednesdays and this is what fell through this past week:

Last Wednesday, December 5, 2012, another movie I will skip was released: “Bad Kids Go to Hell.” A horrorish take on John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club. Can we get some IQ poured into Hollywood’s brains? The same day The NY Post published a picture of a man seconds before he met his death in a subway station.

On Thursday, December 6, Washington State became more laid back than usual as its residents held a temporary celebration of legalizing recreational marijuana. The same day the media started a discussion about what is owed to people seconds before they meet their death.

On Friday, December 7,  tabloids started to ask their readers: “What if Kate Middleton Is Carrying Twins?” This is a hard question to answer, but here is TPV’s take on it: if indeed Kate Middleton is pregnant with twins, then it becomes more obvious that the father of the future royal babies is whomever artificially inseminated the lovely Kate.

The same day, Australian DJs Michael Christian and Mel Greig decided to call the hospital, King Edward VII Hospital, pretending to be Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth, inquiring about Kate Middleton’s condition. Jacintha Saldanha, a nurse filling in for a receptionist, answered and transferred their call to the attending nurse, who gave details on Middleton’s condition. Amazed that their call was put through, the DJs Christian and Greig bragged about their exploits on the radio and online. Saldanha was found dead on Friday.

On Saturday, December 8, Christian and Greig went on hiding, after receiving criticism and even death threats. The radio station and the rest of the media (not TPV) chose to blame them for Saldanha’s death, though Saldanha’s death occured right before she was supposed to have “a chat” with her employer.

On Sunday, December 9, sports shows occupied the Americans’ mind.

On Monday, December 10, MoveOn.org circulated an email petition asking people who do not read the NY Post (MoveOn.org sympathizers) to boycot the right-wing tabloid for publishing a picture of a man seconds before he was crushed by a NY subway train.

On Tuesday, December 11, people whose voice had not been heard on the 2012 UN Human Rights Day decided to wait for the next year’s Human Rights Day to speak up.
