    Found on Facebook in response to Meryl Streep,

    Dear Hollywood celebrities and actors you only have a place in my world to entertain me. That’s it.

    You make your living pretending to be someone else. Playing dress up like a 6 year old. You live in a make believe world in front of a camera – and often when you are away from one, too. Your entire existence depends on my patronage.

    I’ll crank the organ grinder; you dance.

    I don’t really care where you stand on issues. You see, you aren’t real. I turn off my TV or shut down my computer and you cease to exist in my world. Once I am done with you, I can put you back in your little box until I want you to entertain me again. I hope you realize that the only words of yours that matter are scripted. In my world, you exist solely for my entertainment.

    I’ve always loved Meryl Streep the actor. Now, I really love Meryl Streep the person.
