When our kids know more about the Kardashians than the Constitution--
When Ke$ha's "Get Sleazy" tour becomes the favorite summer stop for the tween set--
When grown men share their girlfriends' concealer and eyeliner--
When parents name their children after appliances, fruits, numbers, and one of the five boroughs of New York--
When people nurture their virtual crops on Farmville while subsisting on Lucky Charms in their parents' basements--
You know we have a cultural meltdown on our hands (all of which I discuss in my new book).
Think you're immune to the fall-out? Not a chance. None of us is safe. Not even our pets. (Do you know who "friended" your Chihuahua last night?) Accompany me on a quickie tour of the seven rings of America's cultural hell.

Ke$ha's tour? Eyeliner? Naming children after appliances? What a bunch of superfluous nonsense. Here's something I find revolting about American culture: Indifference The “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” has more people in jail than any other country in the world and time and time again gives up freedom for security.
Editor's note: This blog post currently reflects that there are five boroughs of New York, not five boroughs of Manhattan.
