Is there any way we can declare an Amber Alert each time one of these celebrities kidnaps a kid from Africa.
Only somebody as painfully self-obsessed as Madonna would believe that the life she can offer a child -- any child -- is somehow better than the care that same child could receive somewhere else.
Anyone who argues that Madonna's act was unselfish: you heard all about her doing it, didn't you? And has sincerity ever been in her repertoire? When was the last time she didn't do something for the sake of cheap publicity?
For the record, if the question comes down to what's best for a child: living in a hole, eating a spoonful of Red Cross grain every two days and probably dying of AIDS by the age of four -- or being raised by Madonna...
I think the answer is obvious.
