Leave Chelsea alone

Q: It's official -- Chelsea Clinton is married. Chatter was all over the media for months, despite a hard-fought campaign for privacy. Are celebrities entitled to privacy in such matters? And do we, as a culture, tend to pay too much attention to celebrities, or is the Chelsea marriage a good example of the things we should celebrate?

Having worked in the luxury transportation business for over 20 years, I well understand the importance of maintaining the privacy of my clients.

Chelsea Clinton is not a rock star or a Hollywood celebrity whose popularity -- and fortunes -- depend on continued and constant popularity feed and presence in the public eye to remain at the top of their game.

While I understand the media's interest and the public's desire to learn the details of the wedding of a former president's daughter, the fact remains that Chelsea is a private citizen. She does not seek the publicity that celebrities often desire and relish, or need the attention of the public to maintain her career.

In my opinion, Chelsea deserves the right to her privacy and the opportunity to enjoy her wedding without being followed by camera crews and paparazzi.
