By Jeff Schwager Without facts backing up the accusation, you put yourself in position of judging a man (or woman) guilty based on hearsay. Just because the person is famous that doesn't automatically make them innocent OR guilty! Dysfunction is no respecter of one's statues. The rich and famous are equally capable of exhibiting the same virtues we aspire to, as well as the same dysfunctions that plague the rest of society. You should neither put them on a pedestal and think they can do no wrong, nor should you be jealous of them for their success and wish evil upon them. Let the facts alone judge them innocent or guilty.
