Do These People Have Any Tether to Reality?

Paul McCartney and Heather Mills finally have a divorce agreement:

The judge calculated Mill's annual income needs at about $1.2 million and included a sum of $5 million for her to buy a property in London.

A provision for daughter Beatrice consisting of periodical $70,000 payments was included, and McCartney has agreed to pay for her nanny and school fees. Of the provision, Mills said, "Beatrice only gets $70,000 a year so she is obviously meant to travel B class while her father travels A class. But obviously I will pay for that."

$5 million for a London house actually makes sense. If she needs $1.2 million, she needs $1.2 million, but kvetching about a three year old getting $70,000 a year? For what, teddy bears? If B class is a metaphor, I'm not getting it. If it's literal, uh, where does a three year old need to go?

Whoever said golddigger? They were right.

On the other hand, if his assets total $800 million, I'm not sure why he's kvetching either.

Next lifetime, I'm totally coming back as a golddigger. It looks so rewarding!

The whole thing is sickening. That he would fight against giving up a fraction of his wealth, which is eternally replenishing, when he could have saved them all this public brawl? And that she is still so bitter and publicly vindictive about *only* getting that fraction? Disgusting, all of it.

I'm kind of cranky these days, clearly :).
