Celebrities making sense?!?!
Can it be? Celebrities are famous for... well I guess they're famous for making movies and stuff, but many of them also spend a fair amount of time championing ridiculous causes. I never thought I'd see the day when a bunch of movie stars and musicians were getting behind an issue I agree with. Michael Stipe, Coldplay, Antonio Banderas, Thom Yorke, Minnie Driver and more have gotten together with Oxfam to help put an end to farm subsidies. Farm subsidies in America and Europe waste tax dollars to produce too much food that's put into world markets, depressing prices and undercutting third world farmers. This is a big issue but it is certainly not as glamorous as most celebrity crusades. It seems unlikely to me that this was anybody's publicist's idea.
