60. Which is ridiculously heartbreaking in and of itself.
Rather than getting educated they are listening to a celebrity for their news and "facts" on life. Sadly, I don't follow twitter and even though I was born into the MTV generation, the mere fact that aspects of MTV are have enough power to control the airwaves raises some questions.

I never said what she did was wrong or horrible. However the comparison to a Presidential leader is what I find disturbing, additionally its the fact that celebrities in America are given so much power---it disgusts me. I support her cause, although I personally found it rather demeaning her bringing fired soldiers of DADT with her to some awards show. I see where she meant good, or I think I do----however to me it's in the same vein of when Gwen Stefani brought her puppet Japanese girls. It's just disturbing to me. Helpful depends on the person, although I do not debate her intentions are good, if not impressive.
