Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Bad Script Writing

Just an odd thought while watching a rerun of the Daily Show.

First we had Bernie Madoff running a ponzi scheme and making off with his investors' money. Madoff? Really? If you wrote this it would be an an example of bad character representation. At the very least a whimsical nod to morality plays.

And then we have MF Global. Really? MF Global? Come on.

Whomever is writing this script, they really suck at names. Get a baby-name book for crying out loud. Try your local cemetery. Do something so these characters' jobs in this scripts aren't telegraphed so much.
