Running with the bulls???Posted Friday, July 10, 2009, at 7:56 AM
As I perused my morning headlines today I noticed that at least three news agencies seem to be making a big fuss out of the death of a person at the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain this week.
Is it just me or is that not really newsworthy? I mean picture this scenario...
Man travels around the world to visit Spain and run down the street alongside a 1,000 pound animal with giant horns and a bad temper, man dies...DUH!
In my opinion, the news story should have been titled "Only one dies in Pamplona."
I know the people who go do this treat it as some kind of spiritual or religious experience, but is it just me or does teasing God not sound a little crazy?
