My rant….who cares what entertainers think?

Is someone a famous musician? That makes them good at music.
Are they a famous actor? Then they are good at acting.
Do they swim fast or play in the NFL? Then they are good at football.

My point: who cares what these people think? They aren’t public intellectuals; they aren’t scientists, political leaders or judges. They are good at things that entertain us.

I am not opposed to such entertainment; after all I had a wonderful time at yesterday’s double header baseball game (Peoria Chiefs vs. Burlington Bees; Peoria swept the games 7-6 and 4-3; both were exciting games)

But I certainly don’t take any civic or intellectual cues from those players.

I am much more concerned with the attitudes that, say, a sitting politician or a sitting judge has.

Time to hit the treadmill; huge thunderstorm outside.
