I am sure you probably guessed that I have a great disdain for those that follow the lives of celebrities. Is it really necessary to know who movie and television stars currently are banging? I think not. My knowledge of the goings on of our elite corps of celebrities stems mostly from the covers of People magazine that I scan while waiting in line at the grocery store and the headlines on Yahoo! news that you can't help but see as you check the site.
Still, I am a sucker for the Oscars. Once a year I actually pay attention to movie stars and allow them their 3 1/2 hours of pomp and self congratualtion. They've given me hours of entertainment over the years to I'll give them a Sunday evening.
