We still don't know what exactly killed Michael Jackson.
We still don't know why Sarah Palin decided to quit as Alaska's governor.
We still don't know when the Obama stimulus plan is going to turn around the economy...although the ever-talkative Vice-President Joe Biden claims the administration "underestimated the depth of the recession" that some were calling the depression before President Obama took office in January.
We still don't have real answers to these questions, although the "talking heads" on cable TV are still talking about them.
Not that the Jackson and Palin stories will have a lasting impact on the world. The economy obviously will, but to expect a plan which was approved just a few months ago to change things overnight is optimistic, at best.
The people who are trying to answer questions which (for now) simply can't be answered are doing this for a reason. They believe someone out there cares about these issues (Again, the economy is the most important of the three mentioned above); enough, anyway, to keep watching.
But I wonder: whatever happened to those protestors in Iran? Did they all get arrested (or mysteriously disappear)? Or did they just end up accepting the outcome of the election they were protesting?
But I guess that's old news.
