Look, the expected 'I'm sorry someone is dead...' aside, I have spent some time wondering why I don't give a rat's rear-end about stories like the still-unfolding Oscar Pistorius case.
Maybe it's because I didn't pay more than passing attention to him when he was the inspirational and at the same time controversial Olympic figure? Just a guess, can't be sure.
For the record, as of this writing he's still going with the 'I thought it was an intruder' explanation as to why his girlfriend is dead.
I hope I never have an intruder in my house but I wonder if I did and as I stood there with a gun in my hand knowing that the intruder had bolted himself inside a bathroom, would my first reaction be to pump three gunshots through the bathroom door?
Regardless, if he killed her may he go to jail for as long as law allows in South Africa.
Meanwhile I marvel at the worldwide fascination.
I have given some thought to the idea that maybe this is a meaningful and interesting story and the fact that I'm not interested is my problem. So is it me?
And is it weird that the answer to that question is something else I'm not interested in?
