Multimillion-Dollar Bounty on TomKat Baby Photo

There were two things in the news today that seemed odd. This is one of them:

ABC News: Multimillion-Dollar Bounty on TomKat Baby Photo: "'This could go from anywhere from $3 [million] to $5 million, depending on the bidding war that ensues,' Us Weekly senior West Coast editor Ian Drew told ABC News Radio."

The thing that is odd about it is simple: The pressure of this multi-million dollar bounty ends up making life for this family miserable.

These are two human beings. They are normal people just like you and me. Imagine if these two people want to do something completely natural like walk around outside one evening. They cannot do it.

Comments:
What I find amazing is society's undying need to invest this much time, money and effort into something that pretty much anyone on the planet can do... reproduce.

All that energy should be invested in finding a cure for cancer or something.

Grrr...

Actually... if you ask them they are not human beings but decendants from aliens persecuted by inter-galactic warlord Xenu.
 
Actually, this has a quite simple solution...let the new parents release the first photo themselves...then they can control what it looks like, who gets it, etc., and the pressure is then at least somewhat relieved....
