Yesterday, the top story listed on the google news site was that George Bush's colonoscopy was going forward as planned. Well, thanks for the 411.

I'm usually a big fan of this high tech information-saturated age, but there's such a thing as TMI. I don't care how important a person is, I don't need to know what's going on with their colon. Ever. For any reason.

I realize that temporarily transferring power over to the VP is a newsworthy item, but maybe next time the media can substitute the words "annual colonoscopy" with "routine medical examination." Spare me the details.

Reason #547 of why I'm glad I'm not famous: nobody is googling my colon.
