Entertainers Should Dig Deep First

I am probably going to sound like a Communist here, but I have something on my mind, and it's been triggered yet again by the New Orleans disaster. Every time there's a tragedy, all of these rich stars, actors, musicians, comedians, etc., come on TV and plead for all of us to contribute to the cause. HOLD IT a second! These stars, actors, musicians and comedians have more money in their own personal bank accounts than WE will ever have; maybe THEY should contribute and leave us alone? I know that some stars contribute to things, but the fact remains they have gobs of cash and can contribute tons! Certainly, "celebrity status" effectively brings attention to things, but those with more disposable income have more to dispose of, pure and simple. Unless the "balloon payments" on their mansions are coming due!
