    for nothing.

    Reality is not as much fun as pseudo-reality.  In fact, I think we need a new word for reality, since the old man as been degraded so much it has lost all semblance of meaning.  When people talk about creating their own realities, well that was when I knew "reality" could mean whatever someone wanted to mean.

    Bush wanted it to mean that whatever he did was right even if he had to tell a ton of lies to achieve his result (cf. Iraq War), War on Terror, Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, etc.).

    Large Media Companies want reality to mean whatever attracts ratings without costing to much to produce.  Guess what?  Mission Accomplished!
