"Writing is a skill, not a talent, and thus one's ability as a writer can be improved by thoughtful effort. The problem with some people is that they graduate college as good writers, experience early success on account of that, and thus never devote themselves diligently to the relentless quest for improvement that could make them great writers."
If you're a rich guy who wants to sire kids, but you aren't down with that nasty heterosexuality business, the free market has now supplied the solution. The surrogate who bore twins for Ricky Martin, it turns out, was hired through an agency that specializes in such arrangements. It was the third surrogate birth for the 26-year-old rent-a-mom. Not every vaginaphobic celebrity can do like Clay Aiken, and find a lady friend to help him do through scientific assistance what he loathes to do by natural means. But if you're rich enough, you can hire out a uterus and become a proud gay dad via artificial insemination. Question: Do gay dads want to be present at the birth? I mean, if they hate and fear ladyparts so much, it must be traumatic to witness the vajayjay doing what nature meant it to do.
