This Week's The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
As this crazy week comes to a close, I'd like to reflect on what I've experienced, as well as what's been taking place in local and national news. It's been an interesting few days.
First of all, I have learned that not all flights of stairs can accomodate a queen-size box spring. This lead to an unexpected trip to the mattress store and purchase of split box springs, which will be delivered today. What's up with that?
The trial in which a woman tried to extort money from University of Louisville basketball (and former UK coach) Rick Pitino ended in downtown Louisville yesterday. She was found guilty on all six counts. It has been a sordid affair from the beginning (Pitino admitted to having had "relations" with the woman) and far too much information has been revealed in the last couple of weeks. It's gross, tired and I'm glad it's over.
Will some network executive please put a stake in the heart of ABC's "The View" and end that mindless show? I don't watch it, but I'm so tired of hearing about the antics of its manic hosts. Apparently Whoopi assaulted one of the Real Housewives? The one who crashed the White House? Blah, blah. Who cares?!
Sean Penn is criticizing Wyclef Jean's motives on running for president of Haiti. Penn can do this while sitting atop his high horse living in Haiti. Hey, Sean Penn: who are you to criticize ANYONE?? Just go back to making movies where you cry in pivotal scenes and shut up already.
And, so I don't sound like a complete raving lunatic, I would like to give props to one of the classier events that took place this week: Chelsea Clinton's wedding. No matter what your politics, whether you like her parents or not, the way she and her hubby handled their nuptials was very well done. No media circus, no selling of photos to People Magazine. Elegant and refined behavior all around. Keep the memories for yourselves, your family and your friends. So many people should learn from your elegant restraint. Cheers to you, Chelsea. :)
