If I am somehow overtaken by a vicious bout of the crazy, and I commit a heinous crime like this Mensa candidate, I wonder how deep in my friend pool the media would dig..I ask this because this morning on the Today show, Meredith Viera (a very poor man's Barbara Walters) was talking to a friend of Jared (not the subway one) and this guy had only known the alleged killer for a few years. Yet, here he was on national television talking about Jared like he was his therapist or long-time friend or something. It was a complete waste of time, but the media is so thirsty for a lead or a breaking story, that they will give assclowns like this a chance to shine. I understand it, but I don't like it.

Still, I wonder who the media would go after in my case. Believe me, I won't be doing anything foolish like my main man Jared, but let's say I became famous all of sudden, and it became cool to directly or indirectly know Rashad F. Baby. Would the media raid my blog for context clues of who I am? Would they read my (semi) stellar articles at Truth About It? Would they hit up my good friends or would they flock to my dumb ass exes who would present a less flattering picture of me? Would my family stay true to me and not talk (or only talk glowingly of me), or would they run their mouths incessantly about my flaws? I hope to find out one day..but again let me stress, I hope it'll because I've done something dazzling and profound, but not crazy and unsettling.

On a serious note, I feel sorry for Jared's parents, who had to put out a statement about their son. That is NOT something a parent ever anticipates doing, and to have to do that on top of the grieving process, must be absolutely agonizing. Maybe they were bad parents who led their son to this state or maybe they were model parents who just lost their son somewhere along the way..I really don't know. I still feel for them.
