Wackos in the News

This week, the pastor of a very small congregation (50 members) with radical views monopolized the news -- to the point where the President of the U.S. commented about him. Are the fringe radicals in society overtaking the majority of those of us in the middle through the sensationalism of the media? I don't think this, or any other fringe element should get the amount of attention that this crackpot got. Add to this the amount of interest generated in other radical elements and the influence of someone who should be ignored is magnified to be significant. I guess you can't sure stupid.
