  1. Terry Pratchett. Maybe Fred Rodgers would be worse, but it’s a close call.

    Fortunately they’re both verifiably awesome, so I’m not worried.

  2. John Williams. His music has been such a huge, huge, huge, FUCKING HUGE part of my life since I was twelve. Which, for context, was during the 2nd Clinton Administration.

  3. None of them.

    I genuinely do not care about the personal ethics of a celebrity.

    I care about how an actor acts, how a magician magics, how a musicians musics.

    They are not better humans in any other way and they should not be treated as idols.

  4. Bill Cosby WAS heartbreaking for me. I love stand-up, and Cosby and Jeff Foxworthy were my introduction to it all. I patiently collected as many Cosby bits as I could from Napster on a dial-up connection. I listened to them all a hundred times and I could recite many from memory. It was crushing to find out that one of my heroes is actually a monster.
