With the Academy Awards coming up this weekend, I am posting an article I wrote after the horrific events of Sept. 11th. If you recall, the Emmy Awards were postponed twice following that dreadful day. Nobody was much in the mood for entertaining, and the stars were scared to gather in such a public forum.
You're welcome to your own opinion, of course, but it is my opinion that those who do the most for this country (the average Joes, you might say) get the least amount of praise, while those who do the least are worshiped and adored.
