Do as I say….

Although I typically do not read celebrity stuff in newspapers and watch almost no TV at all, it is hard not to have heard of the humanitarian efforts of actress Anglina Jolie, especially for the UN Refugee Agency.  According to reports, she insisted on covering all costs related to her global missions and shared the same rudimentary working and living conditions as UNHCR field staff on all of her visits.  With her wealth of course she can do this, and she can also afford to buy a $1,200 pair of shoes.  I wonder what starving, homeless refugees would do with $1,200?
