    You have former senator and movie star Fred Thompson trying to get us to buy something called "reverse mortgage". Bob Wagner pitches the same thing. Big star Al Baldwin makes unfunny airline commercials and Bill Shatner sells vacations. Jamie Lee Curtis pitches stuff that makes your bowls move. The point is that these people are stars and presumably richer than most small countries. Why do they need to pitch stuff that we don't want and they don't use? Let somebody else get some work. I think some congressman should submit a bill that forces the Ad-agencies to indicate how much these stars are compensated for selling the product and if and if they actually use it as they claim and if the product doesn't work we can sue them directly as well as the company.

    Where did you get the idea that rich people don't want more money?

    Movie stars need to do commercials because they all have 3 expensive ex-wives.
