  1. But maddox thinks Christopher Reeve is was an asshole

    1. Hi Ravi,

      Thanks for that link…

      IMO, maddox is attacking Reeves, only to point out the universal irony that nobody cares a damn about cripples until a celebrity becomes one.

      Well that is indeed a fact. We do not think about the problems of others until we face that problem in our life.

      Again, I don’t think this is true only of celebrities. It is just that when celebrities are involved it makes news. This is true of all of us.

      We all truly believe in the adage ‘accidents and calamities only happen to others’, don’t we?

      Thus while the title serves as a perfect misnomer, maddox seems to be mixing issues here, in his quest to be a “neutral commentator”.

      JMO 😉

      Nakul
