The Super Bowl was boring, as usual (you know . . . football) and had way too many TV commercials, as usual. And Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ half-time show was like brown snow — tired winter, dead flowers, bronchitis brought on by lifestyle — which brings me to my point: The half-time show’s producer (the company that put it on) asked for 600 volunteers (and got them), but I don’t know why anyone in their right mind would give their time for free to millionaires like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers or to an event that makes millions of dollars (never mind the Super Bowl’s sponsors’ earnings, the ones who bought the commercials — they paid 2.7 million dollars for 20 seconds of air time).
Makes me wonder about Mankind. With all those millions of dollars floating around, why did 600 Arizonans work for free?
