    "Our love of a celebrity's downward spiral is understandable enough,- social psychology tells us that focusing on anyone down on their luck makes us feel better about our own lives."

    " Every time you idealize someone else, you necessarily devalue yourself. It's my belief that our fascination with celebrity news points to a festering boredom in our own lives."

    Dawg, I need my supporter donation back. I guess I need to go to a shrink. Or take up a hobby.

    What's wrong with gossip?

    I belong to several NFL forums, and we gossip about everything. EVERYTHNG.

    Gossiping is natural, it's a way of getting relief and having a good time.

    There's nothing wrong with what we do here.

    Imagine a world where there was no gossip.

    We'd be bored out of our minds.
