John Wagner has a good post here about his interpretation of a 20/20 episode last weekend. Thanks to the constant glare of media, we've had a number of curious changes in our behavior. Like:
- Notoriety and celebrity -- once considered different animals -- are now interchangeable.
- Young people would rather be embarrassed publicly than ignored privately.
Wow. Are we really that far down the line?
I guess we have been for some time. It was 1994 when Don Henly said: "This year notoriety got all confused with fame, and the devil is downhearted because there's nothing left for him to claim."
