“A stirring dwarf we do allowance give before a sleeping giant.” – Troilus and Cressida

Why is it that we seem more concerned about Demi and Ashton’s breakup, then about the threat of global warming?  About non-existent inflation, then the very real high unemployment rate?  About Chaz Bono on Dancing with the Stars, rather than death and the war in Afghanistan?  I’m not blaming anybody because it seems to be a universal, nonpartisan phenomenon, but why is it that we get so distracted by stirring dwarfs when there are so many larger sleeping giants about?
