All the World's a Stage

Few newspaper headline writers are confused with Shakespeare. However, some do agree with the Bard's famous proclamation that real life mirrors high drama. Based on recent headlines, you could be forgiven for assuming that modern civilization exists primarily for your entertainment, like a good (well, sometimes bad) tragicomedy.

2008 Democratic National Convention: Day 2
New York Sun: Clinton Drama Is the Subplot of Democrats

Charleston Post & Courier: S.C. delegates expect drama in Denver

Deccan Herald: Bellubbi quits, but after high drama

Torquay Herald Express: Heroic rescue after explosion drama

OK, so maybe the Democratic Convention really is a case of life imitating art. But explosions? Jerry Bruckheimer has, at best, a tangential relationship to reality.
