Go Brooke, Go Brooke

Brooke Shields has an intelligent, thoughtful, op-ed piece in the NY Times today defending herself and everyone else who's had postpartum against Tom's vitamin theory. She manages some incredible restraint, with only the tiniest bit of sarcasm at the beginning and use of the word "ridiculous" later on.

Brooke says, "I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Mr. Cruise has never suffered from postpartum depression."

This may be the only point I could argue in the whole piece. I think that may be exactly what Tom Cruise is suffering from. Think about it. It's not likely to be diagnosed, in his case, but he's got something.

On the contrary. Tom suffers with pastpartum depression to this day. Just as there are drug-drug interactions, so are there vitamin-vitamin. Though you may think it's Mission: Impossible, Tom and his co-star John Voight conceived a love child as the result of the vitamin-vitamin interaction. They gave the child to Angelina to raise. Explains a lot, doesn't it?

It all makes sense to me now.
