It's a bit perplexing to see so much coverage being provided to stars' birthdays ... not to mention other aspects of their lives such as their love affairs, marriages, divorces and what not!
This is the kind of brainless entertainment that people prefer and enjoy instead of "serious" stuff.
Who wants to understand the complexities of space exploration when one can simply enjoy some gossip about the latest twists and turns in some star's love life?
Who bothers about the complexities of biological sciences and the complex nature of the battles that scientists are fighting with diseases such as cancer and AIDS? Better to just listen to the sacharine sweet advice of some God man who advises that all is well with the world and there's an Almighty and benevolent and watchful God watching over all our actions.
I wish of course that people would tire of inanities some day and focus on the real issues and realize that our destiny is shaped by the actions we take and is not subject to the whims and fancies of a fictional Superpower ...
