Celeb-Reiki Badu seeks attention, strips, and gets it

It's obvious just by looking at her, even clad, that singer (and Reiki practitioner) Erykah Badu is too young to have been around when John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas in 1963. By the time Badu was born in that city in 1971, the site of that tragic event had long since become a tourist attraction. Those of us who were around back then remember to this day where we were and what we were doing when it happened, the shocking violence a turning point in all our lives. We can only assume that Badu couldn't possibly understand us, just as we can't understand what her point was in walking past the assassination site, shedding her clothing, in a video for her latest CD. Even further beyond our comprehension was the fact that she interwove actual video from the event, and then (sorry to spoil the surprise) faked being shot to death once she'd stripped down to her birthday suit. But we're obviously behind the times: the Washington Post seems to like it. The Dallas Police, however, are a bit more old-fashioned: they arrested her for disorderly conduct. The $500 fine is a bargain, considering all the free publicity she got.
