“The scramble for celebrity has never been more frantic. But who in his right mind would want to suffer the indignities it demands? Consider the humiliations that routinely come with celebrity these days—the leering of TMZ, the sneering of Gawker. Every time a well-known woman swings her legs out of a limo, she has to take care that the collected cameramen don’t succeed in getting an embarrassing shot up her skirt. Nor does it suffice to hide in the privacy of one’s own room, as ESPN’s Erin Andrews recently discovered, when spy-camera video of her was posted on the Web. For this one shinnies up the greasy pole?”
