A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Cult of celebrity: Fox News Watch's Eric Burns takes aim at celebrity worship in his latest column, especially the kind committed by James Lipton and his "Inside the Actor's Studio."

Burns is correct in his assessment of Lipton:


If he had been alive in the Middle Ages, he would have earned his living by licking the boots of the third-rate nobility and then bragging to friends about the sanctity of his tongue.


I will say this -- 99 percent of the time I'll keep on flipping right by Lipton's show -- with two exceptions. I watched his interview of Billy Joel. (What's he doing interviewing a singer/songwriter?) And I watched his interview of the cast of "The Simpsons."

Otherwise, his show is pretty worthless.
