Just a thought about celebrity

This morning I was watching "Regis and Kelly" while keeping an ear out for the municipal garbage truck. I wanted to give the garbage guys their Christmas present.
Brad Pitt was on - promoting his charity work in New Orleans.
It struck me as incredibly ironic that this man has the wealth and power to change the world because he's good at an incredibly trivial job.
I don't want to argue the value of the arts. I'm just saying that life is easier/better because Garbage Guys do their jobs.

Logical, reasonable, agreed!
Glad to hear Dax got a clean bill of health and loved the pics!
Merry Christmas to both of you and your furbabies!!!!!

That is such a good point. So many celebrities think because we enjoy seeing them perform, many without much actual talent, we care about their opinions on everything. I'm sure the garbage men have opinions just as valuable.

Yes, I kiss my dogs but mostly when no one is around. I don't want to discuss it with anyone not a total dog person.
