Piers passes one million followers: "Indispensable, worryingly addictive, endlessly entertaining, boredom-relieving"

Piers Morgan's column in the Daily Mail this weekend touched on his recent Twitter milestone – passing one million followers. "Every celebrity will tell you they couldn’t care less how many Twitter followers they have, yet curiously they all know exactly how many they have at any given moment. It’s become the ultimate willy-waving contest for egocentric stars, whether they admit it or not," he writes. "The greatest asset of Twitter is that it’s such a brilliant source of news and information. If anything happens in the world, I read it first on my Twitter news feed, often from a CNN tweet – proving that even the world’s most famous ‘breaking news’ TV network recognises the power, urgency, popularity and relevance of the site. And if I want the answer to any question, I just ask my million followers."

He also reflects on the death of Amy Winehouse:

At her best, Amy was the most brilliantly gifted singer-songwriter this country has produced since Elton John.

At her worst, as we saw in that awful final live performance, she was a hopeless, drunken shambling wreck.

    “Unilateral” Congressional Compromise
    Once again the burden of this Country falls to the lower, middle, working classes, elderly, and alike. A compromise means that two (or more) parties agree to give a little to achieve an overall deal in which both sides benefit. The “so” called compromise is anything but. There are plenty government services that will be eliminated or reduced in order to work towards the two trillion dollar mark. Those services affect the above mentioned group and will mean they will have to spend more to get to compensate for the reduction or elimination of those services. The burden is always placed on the shoulders of those who can afford that burden the least. Those who can afford it, the wealthiest, escaped their responsibilities, just like they always do. Congress, who are part of this group, keeps protecting their own and hides behind the idea that the wealthiest create the jobs. Not so, the wealthiest are just that do to the fact that they do not spend on the myth that Congress hides behind. Bottom line is services essentially equal a tax increase, on the middle class that is. I would like to thank the Democrats and the President for being spineless and selling out once again.
