A despicable situation

Dear Editor:

It’s an interesting thing … because someone is well known, or has worked and made money, people consider it perfectly acceptable for pictures to be taken of them anywhere (“Goldie Hawn: ‘Paparazzi have shooed us out,'” Jan. 3).

What if it were you, your spouse, your kids or your parents? Would you consider that acceptable then? I know I would not. Just because someone is wealthy, and well known, does not negate their right to a bit of privacy and peace. It’s a despicable situation. Thank you.
