  3. Well-spoken truth. My cynical side comes out when I hear that a celeb has made some magnanimous gesture–probably isn’t fair, smacks of “judgment”, but I usually think they’re doing it to get a tax write-off. Real heroes don’t advertise, and usually just want to be left alone; celebs complain that they want privacy–and then they do ridiculous things to get back in the spotlight, news. Can you tell that my pain has me irritable today?
