A middle-aged couple sat across from one another in a booth of a coffee shop. They shared a newspaper and their thoughts on the articles they were reading.
“Oh my,” said the woman. “Did you read this story about the fellow who won millions of dollars on that game show? Says here that he’s got himself a Web site where he’s saying all sorts of unflattering things about the show and the show’s host.”
“What’s he griping about?”
“Doesn’t say. Just seems like he’s offering some kind of commentary, criticism really, just because, well, I guess just because people will listen to him since he spent so much time on the show and won so much money.”
“That’s what you call biting the hand that feeds you,” said the man.
“You’ve got that right. But I’d like to ask him why he’s using his fame in this ugly way. Of all the things he could write about. My goodness! If I had the world’s attention…”
“Yes, my love? If you had the world’s attention, what would you say?”
Readers? What would you say if you had the world’s attention for a few moments?
