  1. Found on Facebook in response to Meryl Streep, et.al.:

    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.

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