How do you personally handle disillusionment with formerly respected people like Bill Cosby, Subway


company spokesman Jared, elected officials, pastors, historical figures or others who have serious crimes uncovered? What do you teach your children about this and what is your advise to them about hero worship or the worth of people in the spotlight?

    I hope it develops youth who grow to adults who are more resilient and less hurt by disillusionment, more proactive to change things - voting criminal officials out & finding and voting in some who can be trusted. But we still need some heroes.

    Do actors and other celebrities have too much influence on the public? Perhaps so.

    A+, a resounding amen to this statement. Role models should be parents and immediate circle. To put up a celebrity and/or other noted figure as a role model-----really c'mon now!

    Very wise thinking. One does not know what is true until all the facts are out in the open and proven.

    It is telling that you had that creepy feeling early on. I was fine with him until I took my mother to see him in a performance here a couple decades ago, something struck me as "off", and I could not define it. I feel very negative right now.

    Accepting the bad with the good in people is not easy to do, but perhaps a very good goal for which to strive. Thank you a lot for these thoughts of yours.

    Yes, that is true. It will be interesting and important to see how Mr. Cosby handles his situation in the end.
