The hounding of Kate

THE feeding frenzy is afoot. Whether princess-to-be Kate Middleton wants it or not, she is well on her way to becoming the “most photographed woman in the world” thanks to demand by the tabloid press and the gawking public that feeds it. According to the Washington Post, "the price for a candid shot of Middleton has soared 'well into six figures,' higher than for Lady Gaga or Angelina Jolie." I wish Middleton all the best. But how she can possibly handle this stupefying level of fame is simply beyond my comprehension. My own instincts would be to run -- as fast and as far away as possible. But by all accounts, Ms. Middleton seems the well-grounded sort. I hope so. Otherwise, as Oprah Winfrey once said, "If you come to fame not understanding who you are, it will define who you are."
