Unusually Stupid Celebrities

I know that writing a book is always hard work, yet I cannot help but think that Unusually Stupid Celebrities must have been an easier book than most to write given the sheer volume of anecdotes about celebrity stupidity, vanity, avarice, and egotism out there.  In fact, the chief difficulty would be how to decide which stories to include and which to leave out. I have no doubt that Kathryn and Ross Petras could easily have ended up with a book twice the size that was published.


Still, I have to wonder what is the point of it all. Unusually Stupid Celebrities is an easy and fun book to read and the stories are all funny.  But anyone who has ever seen the cover of a supermarket tabloid already knows that these people are the most worthless lot of self-indulgent fools in the world. In a way, a book like this is almost too easy, like shooting fish in a barrel. If there is anyone who still admires these people, this book might serve to disillusion them.



Cleaning Up the Mess

I am getting more fund-raising e-mails from the Democrats. It seems that every month there is a new deadline from the FEC that the Democrats have to meet. Will, I am certainly willing to do my part. Here is the latest message.

Sometimes it seems like the other side thinks Americans are dumb.

Their message right now is: You didn’t clean up our mess fast enough.

Mitt Romney and the Republicans want to take our country back to tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires and let Wall Street write the rules.

We’ve seen that movie before, we know how it ends, and none of us wants a sequel.

Will you chip in $3 or more before tonight’s midnight deadline?

No, we certainly don’t want a growing economy with low unemployment, do we? I liked that last recession, or is it funcession, so much I want another so I am surely going to make my contribution.
