Sooo Rich on

It’s truly a tragedy for nmeoose so young to feel life has no more to offer him, and my sympathies go out to his family and friends, but I can’t agree that Alexander McQueen’s death is any kind of loss to the world as a whole. He designed over-the-top fashions to be worn by socialites and movie stars. Any doctor, nurse or soldier currently toiling in Haiti, for that matter any guy running a snowplow in the Northeast for 48 hours straight this weekend, has a far more important spot in the world than a fashion designer whose creations are too ridiculous and too costly to be worn by 99.99999% of the population. I hope at least he did some good with the money he made.
