Your Guide to Outrage.

Not sure what to be outraged at anymore? Let me help:

Disney - Fine, Just Fine - A conservative Christian group has ended its boycott of the Walt Disney Co., launched nine years ago in response to what leaders perceived as the erosion of the company's squeaky-clean image.

Paris Hilton - Evil, Pure Evil - A Carl's Jr. commercial starring a scantily clad Paris Hilton frolicking with a water hose is too hot for a media watchdog group.
"This commercial is basically soft-core porn," said Melissa Caldwell, research director for the Los Angeles-based Parents Television Council. "It's inappropriate for television."

Is it clear yet?

Ellen says (in her new book "Funny thing is...") that we have to be grateful for these things. If there was nothing to complain about, what would we talk about at cocktail parties? For example, people would be saying things like:
"I love humidity." "Me too".

Thus, Ellen has learned to be grateful for annoyances in the world, and we should too!
