The Smallest Violin

In way of celebrity news, it appears that Angelina Jolie is suffering from severe exhaustion after the birth of her twins in July. According to this article, she doesn't even have enough energy to sit on the floor and play barbies with her other daughters.

For the tiniest space of time, I almost felt bad for her. Being the mother of six small children has got to be tiring, after all. But then I remembered that she has a nanny for each of those 6 children. And a chef to cook the meals, maids to keep her many mansions sparkling, a driver, a private plane, boatloads of money, and a job that involves being paid millions of dollars to work a few hours a year.

The smallest violin is playing somewhere for you Angie.

I like how the magazine cover proclaimed she was suffering from "post-partum." Ummm, perhaps you should run your headlines by someone with a clue. What they should have said is post-partum depression

Yeah, I saw that magazine cover. Duh.

If she really does have depression then that's too bad, and I hope she gets help. But if she's just tired, sorry, no sympathy here.
