Juxtaposition

In the gym's cardio room, there's an array of televisions set to different channels. You hook up your headphones to the attachment on your machine of choice and can listen to music or get the audio for your selected television. My attention span varies. I've got a magazine, my own CD player, and the images from eight televisions to keep me distracted while trying to break a sweat on the treadmill. On VH1, they're showing the new Gwen Stefani video. Very Alice-in-Wonderland, although at times Stefani seems to evoke Madonna or Courtney Love. On NBC's Today Show, Katie Couric is wearing a cardigan with some kind of faux fur detail down the middle. Instead of stylish, she just looks frumpy. They're showing video of the Marine who shot an Iraqi prisoner. My eyes dart between the screens:

VH1: What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for!?

NBC: "He's [expletive] faking he's dead."

VH1: Tick tock
Tick tock
Tick tock
Tick tock

NBC: "He's faking he's [expletive] dead."

VH1: Take a chance you stupid ho

NBC: ""Well, he's dead now."

I shake my head and continue reading about Sarah Michelle Gellar buying a samurai sword in Japan for her husband, Freddie Prinze, Jr.

Addendum: U.S. probes shooting at Fallujah mosque [MSNBC]
