Aww, Poor Mr. Horn

It saddens me when people–be they famous, infamous, or not-at-all famous–get so wrapped up in their personal problems that they’re blinded to the world around them.

Yeah, I know. That happens all the time. So let’s just focus on the famous people.

I give you Joe Horn, a wide receiver for the displaced New Orleans Saints.

And I have this to say to you, Mr. Horn.

Poor you. You must be in a very uncomfortable situation right now, with a job that many would love to have and a multi-million dollar contract. Poor you, because you don’t know where you’ll be playing football next year.

Aww.

Now shut up and get over it.

Or have you forgotten about the hundreds of thousands of people put out of work due to the hurricanes? And the many more who’ve been left homeless? What about them?

What about the people who pay your salary? The ones who weren’t sheltered from the disaster?

To people like you, I say: don’t make me come over there.

Sure, it’s a pointless threat. That’s the thing, Joe. It’s as pointless as the words out of your mouth whenever someone puts a microphone in front of you.
