Britney SpearsPosted: September 17, 2005
It is my policy in this blog not to talk about celebrities if I can help it. God knows we have enough people doing that already. But I have to say this: I have been sickened by all the jokes about Ms. Spears as a new mother. A woman in her early 20's just had her first child – can we lay off for a minute? Maybe wait till her c-section heals? Then you can pounce on her like jackals again. Don't get me wrong – I'm not interested in either her music or herself, but I do believe in simple human decency. Celebrity obsession is one thing – pathetic, to be sure, but at least understandable – but satirizing a woman for having a child is just sick.
