Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s newborn twins

Has the world gone completely barmy? I sometimes have to pinch myself to see whether I am dreaming or not, and if not, need to confirm that I am, indeed, on “Planet Earth”.

Take this press story lifted out of a Reuters release:

LONDON (Reuters) – Even the most hardened celebrity watchers were taken aback by reports of an $11 million deal (5.47 million pounds) for exclusive rights to the first photographs of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s newborn twins.

When I think of the millions dying of starvation in Africa and the millions dying of AIDs there, I sometimes worry whether we have our priorities wrong.

But who do we blame for such crass stupidity? The people offering money, or the public who buy their wares?
