This is mainly narcissism. The cause may be worthy but most of these slebs could give more money discreetly without the nonsense of the ice bucket.

Seems like a pap caused the accident and then sought to profit from the altercation. He is indeed a jerk but also the victim of a lot of very intrusive journalism.

Another shocker. i know this bloke. He is a little oily and all, but still. My favourite hotel in tokyo now besmirched by this. I can't help feeling there is more to this than meets the eye. He must see thousands of young women a month passing through. why he would choose to try and molest this one is not clear from the story.

Agree tablets and kindles should be allowed. Fact is that the switch to flight mode requirement will be even more difficult to enforce that the current outright ban. Why people are so desperate to call or text when on the runway is a mystery to me too.
