    You're probably right about that, and most likely it correlates with the huge increase in media coverage of celebrities where you can pretty much non-stop 24/7 get your celeb fix if that's what you're into.

    I think there are plenty of people that don't take celebrity admiration to that extreme, though, and can certainly feel sad for the passing of somebody they admired as a person or for their talents at least.

    McNair wasn't a celebrity, at least not in the conventional sense. He was just a retired NFL quarterback, not nearly as famous as Manning or Brady.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
