Open marriages are just an invitation for sexy, exciting, thrilling and potentially lethal distractions.
I try to take absolutely no pleasure in celebrity breakups -- our national bloodsport in recent years. That said, this one just makes me sad -- two nice people who seemed so very happy, and then not. So here's my mostly downbeat playlist for Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
Demi -- your doormat days are done! Congratulations, you've just saved your self-respect.
