THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
I don't understand. I guess that people are selling their name recognition. But, when football players and celebrities make political statements doesn't that cheapen their accomplishments?
For instance, player A led his team to the playoffs time and again. What is his legacy? Selling chicken? Is he a chicken farmer, a butcher, a renown chef? No! Well, then, maybe he is known for all the chicken he has eaten, but then he wouldn't have any expertise over anyone raised in the South. So, he's selling his name recognition to promote something he has limited knowledge concerning.
We could have a lengthy discussion about
whether this selling of name recognition cheapens the accomplishments
for which they arrived at their notability. When the night comes, does
this person want to be known for selling the best chicken, selling the
most used cars or whatever? Or, does he want to be remembered for his
leadership of the team and his accomplishments to help them to their
goal? What makes this celebrity's voice more reliable than the one who
is experienced in this other arena? Does being an expert on everything
cheapen his message? When I go to the doctor I want one who is proven in
his field, not celebrity! Is it sad to say, "I want a surgeon proven in
his knowledge, skill and a steady hand. I don't want that pretty face
who stared in a popular movie."
