See How The Stars Shine

Many celebrities use their fame and notoriety to gain public awareness on everything from starving nations to cruelty to animals. And many of them have no qualms about associating themselves with charitable organizations that use all proceeds generated to do good and much needed work in these areas. Good for them, I am a firm believer in that if every does a little bit, we can accomplish amazing things. But just today I read an article in which Michael J. Fox has been starring in political campaign ads to rally up support for candidates that are in favor of stem cell research. I understand due to his medical condition with Parkinson's disease, Mr. Fox feels the need to raise awareness about how a possible cure can be found ... but I really don't recall him being so adamant about it back in the mid 80's when he starred in Family Ties, or hitting up movie goers in the late 80's and early 90's during the debuts of his multiple movie releases. Nope, he passed up all those opportunities only to beat you over the head with information for the last couple years ... now that he has developed a condition in which that type of research could have been beneficial. How interesting.
