Compare and contrast (my emphasis added):
Entertainer Michael Barrymore has admitted he considered ending his life after the death of a man in his swimming pool in 2001.
… Barrymore, who has published a new book called Awight Now, Setting The Record Straight, said he hoped audiences would accept him again so that he could stage a comeback.
David Blunkett today reveals the full extent of his emotional turmoil at the time of his resignation as home secretary, admitting that he "cracked" and that "at one point I really did think I was going mad".
… He is now re-entering the political arena with a controversial memoir based on the taped diaries he recorded at the end of each week.
Anyone might think that writing an autobiography causes one to start admitting to sure-fire, headline-grabbing angst.
