    . . . Except attention, of course, which, as noted above, may be what he wants most of all.
    I guess Jenner equates the pursuit of money with the pursuit of happiness

    I think it is the acquisition of money that bring him happiness... the pursuit is exhausting.

    The latest from Caitlyn's publicity-generating machine. First a story is floated that she is going to do Dancing With the Stars this year:

    Then the story is denied:

    Yawn!

    I couldn't care less about Jenner's gender/sexuality.
    But I am always repulsed by once famous, college educated people who use media to promote themselves into a career as a "celebrity" rather than finding some legitimate job to earn a living like most everyone else.
    To paraphrase the great Alfred E. Newman, "What, me work?"
    To me, Jenner is in the same grasping, essentially lazy, category as Marion Jones, who is still online touting herself for a "guest appearance, motivational keynote speech, grand opening, autograph signing, product announcement, employee gathering, or for an exclusive meet and greet."
    Really? WTF!

    Really? I blame the people who pay the money to 'enable' has-beens to make money that way. If I were retired and could somehow earn more money because of what I used to do, I'm pretty sure I'd take it.

    How much more money can they use or do they need that will be worth this type of voluntary humiliation?

    They don't see it that way. "There's no such thing as bad publicity," is often attributed to PT Barnum, which is the way many celebs think. Infamy and notoriety is what they seek.

    Add $$$ and you've got the reasons why I'm repulsed by such people.
    Yeah, really.
    I have no problem with people who used to be famous who actually have something to contribute that might be of social value. Tonight I noticed that Condeleezza Rice was speaking at a local theater. She is an example of someone who occupied a truly important position offering her insight into current affairs for a (probably) pretty steep speaking fee.

    But years after their glory years, Jenner and Jones have, IMHO, nothing of value to offer aside from self-generated notoriety. I view them as minor, annoying parasites on the society. Repulsive ones.
