It has always been amazing to me, how people who have a Title ( Politicians, Movie Stars, T.V. and Theater personalities, Royalty, Sports Figures,etc. are listened to as though they have a more superior knowledge about any subject than the rest of us.
IE: Don't you know that people like Whoopie Goldberg, and Sean Penn are associated with being the greatest minds in our country?
You constantly see these people as guests on News outlets expressing their views.
That is why the greatest movie of all time is the Wizard of Oz. After all of his huffing and puffing and pronouncements, he turns out to be a stumble-bum hidden behind a facade spewing his Omnipotent directions.
