On being a former somebody

It seems that to be somebody these days, you've got to be a former somebody. At least that's what it takes to be a talking head on a TV news show.

There they are, yakking away, and at the bottom of the screen we're told what they used to be:

Former attorney general Joe Blow

Former CIA agent Blah Blah

Former Tiger Woods mistress so-and-so (Hey, it could happen)

My question is this: What are these people doing now? They yakkity-yak on TV so often their current job must simply be to be the former somebodies they used to be.

But what are they doing now? What do they look forward to being?


Philippians 3.13-14
I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
