Titanic vs. Hindenburg

Admittedly, in terms of death counts, the Hindenburg (36 deaths) really can't stack up against the Titanic (1,523 deaths). However, pictures like this one do not exist of the Titanic. All it has is that crappy, love-story movie with "Leo" (remember when teenage girls knew who he was) that happens to be #1 all-time at the box office, but that's another story...

Props to Stephen Colbert for once again doing what the mainstream media refuses to do, acknowledge his presence at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen replayed the "rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg" clip (enhanced by cricket sound effects when the dinner-audience was on camera), and noted the correspondents had displayed a "very respectful silence". Hilarious...again.

It's just too bad that it highlights the gutlessness of today's U.S. mainstream media. Oh, the humanity...
