Mr. Slade:

Regarding this:
"But that question seems contentious and overly cute since we crave both fame and the famous and are not going to give those things up any time soon."

Who is the "we" in that statement? At first I took it to mean humans in general, but perhaps you meant a more specific group. I myself do not feel any such cravings, but perhaps I am deluding myself? A point against me would be that I have a website/blog. However, my motivation for that is a showcase of my web design skills for potential employers, as that is my job.

I wonder if you could say a little more about who you mean by we.

Thank you!
