The Rise and Fall

I don’t know about you but I am getting tired of hearing about celebrities and their drug rehab ventures. Walk in one day, walk out the next. Go to another, stay a week this time…yay! They’re getting somewhere! Eeek, they were just charged with driving under the influence.

I wonder why this stuff hits the news, why do we consider this news worthy? If we ignored them, stopped making their downward spirals newsworthy, would they get better faster? Does being under watch 24/7 make them fail? I wish we knew the answers. There are some very talented people out there right now having a hell of time (I won’t name them as it would defeat the thoughts in my post) and I’d rather see them shine than hear of their difficulties. How about you?
