AND SO IT GOES…#48


It is estimated,by some very experienced,professional estimators presumably,that about 2 Billion people “watched” the Royal Wedding that took place yesterday.That’s one heck of a lot of people with nothing better to do with their own time in this life of theirs who chose to “watch” a part of someone else’s life. “Vicarious”,is I believe the correct term that describes this sort of passive activity;following or being interested in the lives of others.People are their own Stasi.We all do it to a greater or lesser degree and some,a not inconsiderable number,become obsessives and are termed “fans”.in the aftermath of the Wedding event,the betrothed couple asked the Media to respect their “privacy” during the honeymoon period.Aahh !the unmistakable sound of hypocrisy.Re-assuring.
