I Hope She Cares

Some real news after all this talk about wackos at Columbia, volcanoes off Yemen, and protests in Burma: Britney Spears has lost custody of her children to her former hubby, Fed Ex.
I suppose the real question is: will she care ?

Honestly, I've had a theory for a while that she developed bipolar disorder after the birth of her children.

That's as good a theory as any. I've known some people who were absolutely body-slammed by bipolar or similar issues after birth.

Or maybe she's just a very, very ordinary girl, less well educated and worldly than the average: who suddenly has more money and attention than any sane person can process, and it drove her crazy.

Check out "The Superficial" or TMZ sometime. Watch the videos where the paparazzi follow Britney or the flavor of the moment through the McDonalds line, or into a parking lot, or on a trip to the dry cleaners. It's bizarre: it's like these people are God. There they are, doing perfectly normal things -- and they can't get out of their cars or move or do anything without a million flash-bulbs exploding in their faces.

That, and limitless money, and all the hangers-on would drive even somebody who was very well-adjusted over the edge. What would it do to somebody who was, well, not the sharpest tool in the shed ?

Demi Moore had the right idea. She bailed on all that and got out of town.
