What’s the big story this week - Madonna falling off the stage during Brit awards. We all laughed I’m sure. There’s something negative in the human spirit that thrives on seeing celebrities get their comeuppance. This got me to thinking about why a simple undignified fall is big media news. If she fell down the steps in her home - did it happen if nobody saw it? The problem was that it happened to her on the world stage, beamed out on live television and then mercilessly replayed on YouTube and subsequently scorned on Facebook and Twitter. Once it happened there was no Stalinist erasing of the event.
