Million Dollar Baby

In times when a popular television show revolves around two super-wealthy women driving around the country making fun of those with jobs, and line-ups for lottery tickets can reach pandemic proportions, why should anyone be surprised at this? If you don’t care to follow the link, it is a woman who will do just about anything to get a million dollars in one year. Isn’t she cute/funny/shocking? Not really, since there are millions of other human beings in the same pursuit – minus the self-imposed time restrictions. The all-too-familiar challenge is even less respectable than the Hilton/Ritchie show, as it missing the spec of shock that comes with Nicole Ritchie dumping fresh milk on a sidewalk. Yet this woman was on Breakfast Television and has made over $4,000 CND (a far cry from $1,000,000,000, but still a considerable sum). What gives? Is this actually art? Even if it is, please don’t give this woman any money.
