Have at it

So, Michael Phelps has an amazing body. Duh. Which doesn't overshadow the fact that I found all of the attention he was getting in Beijing repulsive. And then, he wasn't even at the Closing Ceremony.... he was making his appearance in London, where he got a 9 jet flyover. Our soldiers, returning from Iraq don't even get that! The men and women who put there life on the line, who give up the possibility of a family, a career, of travel. They come home to their family. No band plays, no crowd cheers. And definitely no flyover. So, why does the swimmer? I know, I know. He trumped some amazing world records, he has worked beyond hard to get where he is, I'm proud that he is American, and so glad his mom made it to every race... but, gimme a break.

All of this to say, here's his diet. And a one day workout. No wonder he doesn't have a girlfriend.

Our culture is really enamored with celebrity. From the media and Phelps stand point it makes them lots of money....But generally we've just got to know how 'they' live etc... Jeff has a copy of 'Entertaining ourselves to death' or is it 'Amusing Ourselves to Death' by Postman???? Want to read it but it might make it more difficult to enjoy public events etc.....
