'Jerry Springer Show' Is a Rosetta Stone for Our Times

RECEIVED Mon., May 19, 2008

Dear Editor,
    I work at home and while taking a lunch break watch the news. Surfing during commercials I ran across The Jerry Springer Show. I don't know who to blame for this atrocity: the viewing audience, the studio audience, the guests, Jerry Springer, and/or the network. The Jerry Springer Show is a clear symptom of how screwed up our society has become. This show also helps to explain how G.W. Bush got elected … for two terms! I had long wondered about that. Now I understand.
