a-snooze at the wheel

I was doing some research at the Brantingham Free (as in free wi-fi, baby) Library, and came across this phrase:

tranquilization by the trivial

attributed to our friend Soren Kierkegaard.

If there is a more apt phrase describing American culture, let me know.

But what do you consider trivial? One person's trivia may be another person's treasure.
