I am beginning to think I am missing something, as I fail to understand the great interest being expressed by the media and others in relation to Jade Goody and her current medical situation.
While I have every sympathy with the fact that she is terminally ill I am conscious that there are many other people in a similar position who get on with life in a very quite unassuming way and do not parade themselves and their illness in front of the world.
I suppose too that I have never rated her as a celebrity and can not see how her appearances on Big brother have given her or any of the other people appearing on this type of show a celebrity status. It must be some of the worst television programming around and is I believe to some degree a measure of the dreadful state that society is in these days.
Not sure if anyone will comment on this but perhaps there may be a reader who can give me a clue to why people are so interested and why the press are giving it so much coverage.
