Hi Greg

> okay rainbowbrite - i understand that communication, and communication btwn sufferers is part of the raison d'etre of the board. and i would never want to stifle it, or even suggest that. but is it also a sounding board for whatever thoughts come into our heads? i don't know - maybe it is.

I don't know either, but I think that everyone deals with things differently and we are all in differnet places in our lives adn things that may be important to you or me may not be to others and vice versa.

>and i guess i empathize with anyone, celebrity or not, who is dealing with a serious psychic matter. but, there are those of us who are less fortunate, and have to make do with what we can, and quite frankly, i am not enamoured of the cult of celebrity worship we have here in the West.

I understand what you are saying but it isn't fair to judge soemone becaseu of thier status, it isn't the stars fault per se that they are adored by many and have money. do you know what I mean? I am not a celebrety worshiper either, It would be cool to meet the odd star but It is far from my dream in life.

> if they were great thinkers - if they were of 'renaissance' quality - then maybe i would be on board. but there are few heroes in that world. and who should we look up to but real heroes? but then celebrities are maybe just our pale fascimile in the present age. or maybe they are just a pleasant diversion from the drudgery or daily life and/or our mental states.
> but count me out of that circus.
> craig.

I agree completely, i think society has a warped sense of what is important and who is important. And yes I think they are a distraction from life.

We all have differnet ways of expressing ourselves andn each of us values differnet things, I don't thin kits fair to judge a persons post based on that. But I definatly do understand where you are coming from!
