I've never understood the cult that looks to stars for advice/information on all matters of topics.

Sure they are good at their field and can use their pulic exposure to highlight causes and needs. But that doesn't make them experts at other topics.

Sun-Times paid me ten cents a word for book reviews in the early 1970s. When I moved to Gnashvegas and tried for a similar arrangement with the local rag I was informed that I should work for free "just for the prestige of having my name in the newspaper." No, thanks. On the other hand, I'm not a celebrity.

taint no dear abby.

Never ceases to amaze me how Stupid has become the New Cool in this country...especially if it involves celebrities.
