A living look at life: The Cause Celeb

"A recent national survey of young people concerning their hopes, dreams and aspirations revealed a rather shocking fact. Most youngsters today want to become celebrities.

It really doesn’t seem to matter to them if they become famous or infamous, as long as they achieve notoriety or celebrity status. The mainstream media feeds this desire by giving an inordinate amount of coverage to the strange, bizarre and weird happenings of spoiled, overpaid entertainers and professional sports figures, and by intensely focusing on the antics of the rich and famous.
