The Kate Moss Crucifixion

The mere fact that I'm even writing about this is absurd, but here we go.

Is Kate Moss's career really being destroyed for riding the charley horse? In the year 2005??? Are you fucking kidding me?!

Are there really human beings out there who think that Kate Moss DOESN'T use cocaine? Like, who would look at Kate Moss and then see a picture of her snorting a line and think, "Nooooo wayyyyy!"

Do people not grasp the routine presence of cocaine in almost any urban extra-curricular situation? I'd like to say that years of living in New York City has skewered my perspective, but then why is it that when I find myself at a seemingly innocent gathering in Charleston, South Carolina, or in a normal looking bar in Jacksonville, Florida, it's snowing there too?

Ultra-Shocking News Flash: Cocaine is fucking EVERYWHERE, folks.

I realize that it's the principle of the situation, that these companies have to do what they have to do, but the coverage of this supposedly "shocking turn of events" is utterly preposterous. Or am I missing the joke, that everyone knows this and is simply going through the superficial motions?
