  Ben Affleck...on Tall Poppy Syndrome

Tall Poppy Syndrome is finally breaking into the American Culture. Two weeks ago, Katie Couric suggested on the Today Show that Tall Poppy Syndrome might be partially responsible for Martha Stewart's downfall. Yesterday, I found this quote from Ben Affleck on the perils of being a Tall Poppy.

Good news for my book! American's may finally have a catchier name than "jealousy" for what happens whenever something good happens to good people! Cheers...
