I'm the Imelda Marcos of sunglasses.. Very sensitive eyes to light. If somebody takes my photograph, I will see the flash for the rest of the day. My right eye swells up. I've a blockage there, so that my eyes go red a lot. So it's part vanity, it's part privacy and part sensitivity.

To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
