Here’s what I saw in the newspaper recently. Someone moderately famous had bought a house. A fairly big house.
Now for most people, that should be a private, intimate transaction. But the newspaper got wind of it. How? By looking through the property-tax papers that get filed alongside. Yes, apparently it’s a paparazzi thing-to-do now!
As if mention of this wasn’t enough, the article also proceeded to state that they were the first to break this news.
Still not enough? They also wrote that they tried reaching out to various members of that family, “but repeated texts and calls remained unanswered at the time of going to press”.
Is this what we are all chasing after? With great power comes great responsibility. But with great money comes great liability. Ironic isn’t it?
