Star Wars Kid

Remember the Star Wars kid? That fat boy who filmed himself swinging what I later learned is a golf ball retriever like a Star Wars lightsaber? His home film was copied and recopied and went around the Internet. I even signed an online petition for him to appear in the 2nd Star Wars prologue. I didn't know I was adding to his sorrow. Here's a bit on that:
Raza reportedly suffered considerable embarrassment, in part because the video showed him to be overweight, and not particularly graceful. The case raised privacy issues and was extensively reported in mainstream news media worldwide, including the New York Times, CBS News and BBC News. The boy had to undergo therapy and counseling that began on October 12 and is currently still suffering chronic depression.

Death and taxes, court and therapy. Americans are just getting too predictable. Poor kid, I hope he gets over himself in time to realize a lot of female Star Wars geeks found him adorable.
