And then I read this.

 Today as I was glancing through the newspapers online I saw stories with the following headings.



Diddy parties it up at exclusive resort in Las Vegas with hundreds of guests. ($$$)

Petra Ecclestone get's Rolls Royce Ghost from new husband. ($300,000)

Kim Kardashian sex tape worth $30 million.

And then I read this

750,000 people in Somalia facing starvation

and I cried.

  4. You'd think that they'd at least try to pretend that they aren't living in their own private perfect world.

  5. I take no issue with success, but these people are the dregs of humanity. I don't understand what passes for celebrity.
