Letter: Reality: War is not entertaining
Friday, August 10, 2012
Coming soon to our homes by way of the NBC TV network is the latest so-called reality show "Stars Earn Stripes," in which second-rate "stars," celebrities such as Todd Palin, who is famous for being famous, engage in pretend warlike activities.
Is NBC so desperate for show concepts that it stoops to finding war is entertainment?
War is not entertainment. War is about killing and being killed, about limbs being shattered by improvised explosive devices, about loss of family members, and massive destruction.
War is not fun.
