Health care, poverty, homelessness, the worst global economy since World War II... ahhhh who cares? My favorite celebrity died!
It seems as if every time a celebrity passes on, suddenly the general public, led by the national media, marks them for saint hood. They throw all other issues to the wind, and begin to morn someone they never met. Biblical statues are figuratively erected across the nation. The impulse to label an actor, musician or otherwise as a hero due to box-offices hits or platinum albums is preposterous. Yet the next time a highly photographed, well-known celebrity human dies, the media swoon will only be worse than the time before. To illustrate my point, I have selected a few notable deaths to hopefully clear the air.
