On a Putting Things Into Perspective

My friend, the Dread Pirate Roberts, had this to say about the rapper 50 Cent:

According to commentary in todays newspaper by DeWayne Hickham Pocket/MTV Books has signed a deal with Curtis Jackson also known as rapper 50 Cent to do a series of books. [SNIP] Like Mr. Hickman says 50 Cent is “… a cancer on the soul of the nation.”

In a world where the President of the United States can call for the bombing of al-Jazeera’s offices in Qatar to silence a hostile press there are greater cancers on the soul of the nation than 50 Cent.
