This one stopped me in my tracks! So well-thought out; phrased. A pearl of wisdom regarding our culture of notoriety. Our insatiable need for attention; spotlight. I tweet, therefore I am.

  1. famous or well known, typically for some bad quality or deed.
    "Los Angeles is notorious for its smog"
