What Are They Thinking?

I just read this yesterday in The New York Post:

"THOSE crazy Dutch TV mak ers are at it again - this time they're pushing a show that hooks women up with ex-cons.

The catch?

On "Prisoner of Love," women go on blind dates with newly-released criminals and have to guess what crime they were jailed for.

Dutch television has long been known for its envelope-pushing TV show formats.
Among some of its more notable efforts is the original "Big Brother."
A few years ago, one Dutch TV station followed a "Big Brother" contestant's pregnancy, then aired the birth. - "

Seriously? What woman in her right mind would go on a blind-date with a guy she knew going in was a criminal? And then she has to guess what his crime was? Are women that desperate in Holland?

It's news items like this that make me wonder just how crazy the world is going to get. Is it possible to hit a new low of craziness?

And I thought that Americans were the only ones who were that crazy.
