Being a celebrity is the ‘best thing in the world’ say children

Evening Standard UK 17.12.06 
Children under 10 think being a celebrity is the “very best thing in the world” but do not think quite as much of God, a survey has revealed. The poll of just under 1,500 youngsters ranked “God” as their tenth favourite thing in the world, with celebrity, “good looks” and being rich at one, two and three respectively. It is the second year running that God has come in at number 10 in the annual survey for National Kids’ Day, but being rich came top last time around.Meanwhile “killing” and “wars” head the list of the “very worst things in the world”, followed by drunks, bullies, illness, smoking, stealing, divorce and being fat. Dying is in tenth place.
