Celebrity is a mixed blessing. It offers comfort, candor, and philanthropy; but it
also offers extravagance, self-indulgence, and self-destruction. Ironically,

fascinating and revolting. So let’s be grateful for our modest, mundane,
mediocre lives which enforce a measure of normality, rationality, and reality.
