Do we need to know this?

The newspaper headlines shout "Odom, ex- NBA star, looking stronger." The national news gives us constant updates on the condition of Lamar Odom. That he is alert and improving. This is the guy, somewhat famous because he is an NBA basketball player, that was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel last week, strung out on alcohol and drugs. I'm on a "need to know" basis here and I don't NEED to know this. I don't WANT to know this. Do we really care? I sure don't!
