    In 1977, I was really bummed out when I heard that Jodie Foster might be gay and Farah Fawcett got married.

    Someone once observed: NEVER seek to meet one of your heroes, for you will be very disappointed when you inevitably learn that s/he is just a fallible human being like you.

    *****


    Many years ago, I was waiting for a bus when I spotted a local hero of mine. I gushed: "Aren't you [his name]? I have long admired you." We talked for a minute when he spotted a friend. He then immediately walked away from me without saying a word. I had learned my lesson.

    I was watching inside the actor studio recently with Alfre Woodard. When discussing playing the role of the Master's mistress slave in 12 Years a Slave she pointed out that slavery was just the economy back then and people had to do what they had to do to participate in it as best they could in their situation. It isn't excuses. It is reality. Anyway, if hating Jews is Henry Ford's great sin, why isn't Louis Farrakhan at the top of the heap?

    Tom Cruise is weird and little. He is in a cult, and ex Scientologist say they have seen him physically abuse people. I canít stand Tom Cruise. His ego is so big in his cult, many of the lower level members serve him on a daily basis.

    And some people were super crappy to slaves - some weren't.

    Louis Farrakhan is known for his extreme views. I think this video was about people who are more known for being and doing great things, but are lesser known for being pretty nasty people.

    I bet there's a lot about Tom Cruise and other members of Scientology that we don't know now, but will come out decades from now.

    I don't think it's that simple. If you were born into a tribe of A's, and grew up hearing your parents and other tribe members constantly complain that B's were lower than pond scum, you would think the same thing and act accordingly towards them. How could you not?
