What kind of man does this?
In the dark, in the softly falling rain, a girl in a medicated daze, runs and is chased by a man with a camera while her father looks on, the OB van follows close behind, the live feed for national broadcast has supers reading “obsessed/jilted fan hounds celebrity” or similar.
What kind of man does this?
My response is unladylike and quite unprintable.

Hi,Austy..obviously,a media man from one of our erstwhile TV news channels. Don't you remember,a year or two back,they filmed a family sitting in the middle of a flooded river,holding on to a rope for dear life,until the time they disappeared? I was shocked..in tha t time,couldn't they have arranged a helicopter or something?

Too bad, I'd love to hear your response. Very few things are shocking these days when most people will do anything for money and/or fame.
