Every few years or months or weeks Alec Baldwin says in the media that he is quitting public life. I think it all started back in 2000 when he swore to the world that he was going to move from the United States if George Bush were elected President. I guess he decided to stay. He threatens to quit Twitter every few months and then comes back because he likes to hear himself. After an incident on American Airlines where he got in trouble for playing a game he said he was finished with public life. Then Capital One figured out a new ad strategy and Alec was back on board. Nothing like a buck or two to get him to change his mind. This time he says he means it and is finished with public life. At this point I kind of wish he would be but he isn't. His ego is way too big to ever let himself fade from public life. All he has to do is look at his siblings who are a prime example of what happens when you do something that gets you out of the loop and how relevance can be very fleeting. A month from now nothing will have changed but Alec will have dominated the headlines for a day or two which is what he wants. He loves when people talk about him and his wife loves it even more.
