What follows is my personal opinion about America and its worship of so-called superstars. It will go against the grain of what most of you think so if you think you are going to be offended don’t read any further.
Last chance to stop reading.
This isn’t aviation news.
I hate to sound cold but this really irks me. Whenever something bad happens to a celebrity, the nation turns intoa “oh, I feel so sorry for you, Mr/Ms ‘Superstar’” rampage. Yes, I feel sorry for any person who lost a child but I don’t like this “he’s a big superstar and part of my life so I must go into mourning over his loss” crap.
There are hundreds of kids that die each year. Yet we never hear about them. These are kids of parents who are struggling to put the food on the table and the clothes on their back.
If you really want to show how much you care for children then donate your money and/or time to a battered woman’s shelter, Ronald McDonald’s House, or the like.
If you feel you must post this, then post it in the Banter thread.
