Forests Being 'Slaughtered for Toilet Paper,' Actress Declares

(Sigh) What are they supposed to make TP out of...sunflowers? From CNS News:
"I think there is a dumbing-down bias (in the media) frankly," said Daphne Zuniga, who starred in the television series "Melrose Place."

"The press is reporting things that are absolutely irrelevant to any of our lives and they are sensationalistic and it is damaging," Zuniga told Cybercast News Service. She made the comments Wednesday night at the Washington Press Club Foundation's 61st annual congressional dinner, which she attended as a guest of Congressional Quarterly.

"We start to think that these things are important, like [the rape trial of NBA star] Kobe Bryant and [the molestation trial of] Michael Jackson and yada, yada, and meanwhile, you know, endangered forests are being slaughtered for toilet paper, you know, sequoias -- whatever it is," Zuniga said.
You can always tell the IQ (or lack thereof) of someone who constantly uses "like" and "you know" in a sentence. Read that last paragraph again. Try to imagine it being said in Butthead's voice: "Uhhhh---it's like, a sequoia...or something!"

Huh-huh...that was cool!
