Each and everyone is a star today! Sit down in any kind of public transportation, look around, and you will understand what I mean. It is normal and as old as humanity itself that we common mortals idolize the famous, the rich, the powerful and the beautiful, but it is very contemporary that we can invite these celebrities at any given moment into our office or living room via TV, Radio, CD, DVD, iPod, etc. These public figures have become an integrated part of our day-to-day reality.
