Has the whole world gone crazy?

published

While waiting in line to purchase a bottle of water at the newsstand in the Las Vegas airport, my eyes fell upon the various magazines that line the front of the registers. Most of these were so-called men’s magazines with women in various states of undress on the cover, and articles about things purportedly of interest to men.

One sensational headline caught my attention: “How to steal your best friend’s girlfriend!”

I stared, mouth open, in utter disappointment. If one is, in fact, your best friend, then doesn’t the covenant of that friendship preclude you from stealing his girlfriend? What kind of world are we living in where we’re actively encouraging one another to minimize any importance friendship might have?
