Sorry to say, America is doomed.

No comment; I think this story speaks for itself:

After reviewing the number of hits top local stories at his newspaper’s Web site got in 2005, Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat concludes today, “As I look back at the year in news, it’s clear I should have focused more on people having sex with horses.”

Indeed, four of the most-clicked stories on the Web site this year, including the No. 1 finisher (“by far”), had to do with the same incident: the man who died from a perforated colon while having sex with a horse in nearby Enumclaw. The farm was known on the Internet as a “destination site” for all kinds of sex with animals.

Westneat says, referring to the most popular list, “It’s not a survey of what news you say you read. It’s what you actually read.

“In fact, the No. 1 horse sex story may have been “the most widely read material this paper has published in its 109-year history. I don’t know whether to ignore this alarming factoid or to embrace it.” He added: “Or, maybe, some of us are not giving readers enough of what you really want.”
