>What's strange is that before I read the text I said, "oh, Nicole Richie." The quick recognition also says a great deal about how "shallow" she has become — no pun intended.
>I spent years in Ethiopia with great people who were unintentionally skinny. Forgive me if Nicole's problem doesn't spark emotion within me.
