When you evaluate the "intelligence" of any country, you gotta look at people in general, what are they interested in, what do they watch or talk about.
For the past 3 weeks , the news coverage in the most popular and legetimate news channels (like CNN, NBC, FOX news) have focused on 3 stories:
1- A woman who drove a long distance to go kill or kidnap her boyfriend's mistress! She happened to be an astronaut.
2- Britney Spears shaving her head.
3- Anna Nicole Smith's death. If you don't know who is this woman, you don't need to. She's a strip dancer who married an old man to get his money then worked in porn/fashion/movies and was involved in many lawsuits. She has a daughter that nobody know who her father is.
Isn't there a fucking war going on?
