Feet of Clay

twistedlibrarian writes “I think the best thing that could happen, would be that Clay’s behavior is as publically exposed as possible (yes, I’ll say just about anything to try and justify a suggestion and get those karma points up there).

“Clay Aiken, a runner-up on the “American Idol” TV show, author of a best-selling book and a musical impresario, is revered in our current culture as a model of success. The reverence is misplaced.

Sometimes performers like Aiken, while making it big in terms of fame and fortune, reveal themselves as thoughtless, graceless and arrogant. Blinded by an inflated view of their importance, they ignore their obligation to others, especially to the young. Not to mention respect for free speech.”
