Dubious Donations

I was/am mulling over doing a longish post on celebrity, if people are actually obsessed with it, what it is, who benefits, and so on. Bread and circuses, opium of the people, that sort of thing. Something cool and dispassionate, perhaps, with some sympathy for those who find themselves needlessly preoccupied by such dubious distractions.

But before I do: Jesus Christ! Have you read this??

Among the more outrageous are suggestions that his daughter, Suri, was conceived using frozen sperm from the movement’s dead founder L Ron Hubbard

Holy crap. I feel an overpowering urge to write some doggerel.

Old Father Hubbard
Kept stored in his cupboard
A vial of frozen mettle

To continue the line
Of his mentor divine
Tom heated it up in a kettle.

I am sure you can do better.
