DEMORALIZING: When Vanilla Sky (a great movie starring Tom Cruise) was out, billboards showing Cruise’s face were all over Los Angeles. My daughter, who was 1 1/2, would look at the billboards and say: “Look! It’s Daddy!” and my heart would soar.
Now she is 3. Last night, she was at the computer when I was reading an interview with Tony Blair, she looked at some of the accompanying photos of him and said: “That looks like Daddy.”
No offense to Tony Blair, but what a comedown!
