    I would like to say just one thing:

    Snooki is NOT a celebrity.

    That is all.

    sorry skateboy, but if you can type one name, and I know who you're talking about, we have a "celebrity", even if it's evidence of the downfall of western civilization

    made me think of this:

    Kurt Vonnegut ‏@Kurt_Vonnegut

    One of the good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us.

    Kurt was way ahead of his time wasn't he? Cachoo's celebrities: The whole ball of wax; politicians, royals, movie/tv/theatre actors, reality tv types and so many of them are not worth my time or yours. Writers get a pass from me because I think I believe in ideas more than people. Given that I'm still a glass half full gal I believe in human ability to do great good. And I think plenty of celebrities are good folks doing good work. I just can't believe how caught up we get with the cult of celebrity.
