Madonna just got approved for another brown bouncer. I guess she's a lil long in the tooth to make milk-mongers the old fashioned way, and since she started out the gate on the late side anyways, so she's trying to make up for lost time by becoming the Old Woman in The Shoe, collecting random children from around the globe. Which might be ok, if she went through the same channels you or I would. But I don't think she does. Adn I question how much time she even spends with these children— you ever notice how scared and confused her adopted kids look, as if to be saying "who is this woman?" Yeah, buddy… something's not right.
I guess what's so troubling about Madonna's quest for an African baby beyond the fact that I'm pretty sure there are children here who would enjoy that kind of sponsorship is that I can't help but think there is some kind of ugly toddler trafficking jumping off. African babies have been the new Beanie Baby for a few years now: seems like the very rich spare no expense or personal embrrasment to go to far-off lands to pick up and ship in the most exotic child they can find. Half the time, it hardly seems to matter if the kid is up for adoption or not. It's like she just walking down the street, kid-shopping. She's been accused of throwing her money her money around to buy influence and children. That's sounds about right to me. What do you think?
