Last night, I gave up on a book I was reading, Celebrity Secrets by Nick Redfern (odd how that name is so similar to a Doonesbury character...). It hints at scandalous behavior of various celebrities over the last several decades, but what the author has done is to get ahold of FBI files that he retrieved by Freedom of Information Act complaints about a number of celebrities, and written about them. Just because these folks had allegations that led to FBI files doesn't mean that these allegations were true, and had they been, I'm sure the folks would have gone to trial. So, rather than continue to read the book (which made me feel vaguely dirty), I dumped it and returned it to the library.
Thank goodness I didn't waste any money on it.
