“OMG, Titanic is real!” tweets (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• The end-of-days markers in this single piece on “painter of light” *gag* Thomas Kinkade’s death are beyond count. Kinkade works selling briskly since artist’s death

• Is the “sensuality” cuz Christian Bale gets naked and rubs himself all over with chocolate sauce in slo-mo? No, wait: Don’t spoil it for me! ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ earns PG-13 rating for violence and…sensuality?

• I keep telling myself not to be astonished by the things some people are ignorant of. And then I get astonished all over again: There are people on Twitter who didn’t know that the Titanic sinking was a real event. How is it possible that we raise generations of children so intellectually incurious? Titanic is a signature moment of 20th century history. How can they be unaware of it? What other historical events do they think were only invented for movies? Hiroshima? The Holocaust? The Great Depression? (No, wait: the Great Depression is what I’m feeling right now.) “OMG, Titanic is real!” tweets [image]
