Warning : mini rant
I was cruising thru the news last night. I saw 2 stories that were plastered all over the internet that made me angry.
The first being the story of Melinda Duckett’s Family Sues CNN and Nancy Grace Over Suicide . Melinda, and Melinda Duckett alone pulled that trigger. No one forced Duckett to appear on NG’s show (via phone) and no one forced Melinda Duckett to pull that trigger, killing herself. It is obvious that Duckett had some serious ‘mental issues’ long before NG ever came into her life. I see no reason to blame NG for her suicide. Also, 2 yo Trenton Duckett is still missing. The latest on his disappearence is that Law Enforcement thinks there is a possibility that the little guy is still alive. I hope so, that would be the best thing ever.
I can remember last September watching the program of NG when Melinda Duckett was interviewed (via phone). Hubby was watching it with me. Of course we both took an immediate interest in the disappearence of Trenton because we are parents, and we happen to have Toddler Terror, who is nearly the same age as Trenton Duckett. A child snatched out of the comfort and safety of his/her own bed is a parent’s worse nightmare.
Hubby and I were both shocked (along with the rest of the Nation) as to how Melinda Duckett acted during that NG interview. I suspected her immediately, before knowing of her suicide.
Hubby asked me at the end of that program, “Do you think he (Trenton) will ever be found?”
I answered, “No.”
Because at that very minute, I felt Trenton was never to be found. My gut tells me Melinda Duckett did something horrible. I am hoping I am wrong and Trenton Duckett is found safe soon.
This whole lawsuit is crazy. I hope they do not get one cent.
The second story that got me into a fit was Rosie Rips Kelly for “Homophobic” Remark. I dislike all parties and TV shows involved in this little dispute. But, I gotta say, I am so damn sick of Rosie O’Donnel playing the ‘gay card’ every stinking chance she gets. Who gives a flying sh*t about her sexual preference. The woman grosses me out.
The whole thing started when Clay Aiken covered (muffled) Ripa’s mouth with his hand when he was co-hosting her morning show with her. Ripa toldAiken, “back off, I dont know where that hand has been.”
O’Donnel immediately jumped all over that saying Ripa made a homophobic remark insinuating about Aiken being a homosexual (he has never said anything about his sexual preference to my knowledge…..um, I dont think he needs to either)
I do not care for Ripa, but if someone puts their hand on my mouth, I am going to react as well, probably in a not nice manner. I have a thing about touching people, especially when others touch me. ack! Anyhow, Ripa has a BIG point, Aiken was out in the audience shaking hands with people, did not wash his hands, then placed on over Ripa’s mouth, ick! And, in the Cold and Flu season.
Rosie just needs to fade quietly away into oblivion……………
Yeah, like thats gonna happen.
This 9pt was taken by my oldest nephew L. in MI a few days ago. L. is the eldest in the trio of my favorite nephews and he is a great hunter. Really, he is. I can remember cleaning squirrels with him when he was in grade school and he was knocking off 2 carcasses to my 1. Anyone who has ever cleaned a squirrel, knows how ‘delicate‘ it can be. This young man also used to cook deer steak for me every night when I stayed with the 3 of them to babysit when their parents went out of town or to some event.
L. has also taken caribou, bear, moose amongst his tropheys. Did I mention that he is a very talented taxidermist as well? He also has the most adorable daughter, she has his eyes.
If he knew I was babbling all this stuff about him, he’d blush and get that shy look I can vividly remember from seeing him at lunch when he was in the 1st grade. OMG, I feel ancient now…….
