I went looking for apartments today. The first one I looked at was perfect, an absolute dream. It was the perfect size(just me and my cat) and the rent is reasonable. The next couple I looked at were not so great...in fact I am getting goosebumps ust thinking about them. I filled out an application for the first one, but have to wait to hear back from the owner about my cat. Ugh. I wish moving into a new place was as simple as pic one and move, not wait forever to find out if you are worthy to live there. I guess we will see...and it does me no good to about it.
It is nothing new...celebrities using their considerable influence to voice their opinions. In 2003, The Dixie Chicks said they were ashamed that President Bush was from Texas, and people around the nation formed a boycot. For years the ladies of this country band had to fight angry threats and low record sales. Now Bruce Springsteen is being attacked for his anti-war lyrics. Let me ask you...do you think celebrities have a right to voice these opinions, as gaurenteed to them in the Consitution, or would you have them keep to themselves and leave the system of government and the structure of society unchecked?
