Culture of Corruption

What happened to American Culture? What happened to decency in American culture? Once upon a time, a person had to have a talent, a look, or a something special going for them to become famous. No more. Once upon a time, when that famous person behaved poorly, they became infamous. And the infamous disappeared in shame. Oh, perhaps they returned after a suitable period of penance and contrition, espousing the merits of reformed behavior, a real-life morality tale to the masses. Not so any longer.

These days, infamy will make you famous. And there’s no hint of contrition or remorse in sight.
