Actor Michael Douglas was asked to equate a nuclear Armageddon with the "Wall Street Armageddon. " A reporter asked, "Are you saying, Gordon, that greed is not good?" Mr. Douglas replied, "I'm not saying that. And my name is not Gordon. He's a character I played 20 years ago." Douglas seems to be one of the members of Hollywood who gets it. We are being manipulated by "scripted" characters who play parts in movies and become citizens, just like you and me, when the sets shut down. So why are we listening so intently to the "beautiful people" whose opinions aren't quite as pretty when they open their mouths? True, it is likely they are forming views as they become more informed (hopefully by reading unbiased news reports). But, do your homework and don't let the "stars" get in your eyes.
