OK, not tabloids, but I like to look at articles on E! Online. Actually, I don’t like the ones where people are judging celebrities. There was one where people were putting down Katy Perry when she split up with John Mayer. What’s with all that hostility?
Anyway, perhaps one of the people I don’t have any empathy towards is Lindsay Lohan. (I wonder what her views politically are. Oh, I know! But I won’t go there.)
At any rate, just in case you missed the series documenting her life, here is a summary of all the things which made Lindsay Lohan sad:
Like having too much stuff:
Or when they put her in solitary in jail… It was almost as if they were trying to punish her, poor girl.
The whole article is here.
From the article:
Rep. Pat Garofalo, a fifth-term Republican from the St. Paul suburb of Farmington, tweeted Sunday night: “Let’s be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime.”
Garofalo initially stuck by his words even after they drew hundreds of negative comments and more than 1,000 retweets, insisting they were misinterpreted.
“Misinterpreted”? Let’s see. How could we have misinterpreted it? It is known that the NBA has a high % of black professional athletes. If NBA teams were to fold, according to him, there would be an increase in street crime. So what would be the cause for the street crime by NBA teams folding?
Later, he “reconsidered” and “apologized”...
“I sincerely apologize to those who I unfairly categorized,” said Garofalo, who’s seeking a sixth term in the fall. “The NBA has many examples of players and owners who are role models for our communities and for our country. Those individuals did not deserve that criticism and I apologize.”
Let’s see. So he’s not apologizing to those who he felt he fairly categorized???
And it’s people like Garofalo who’s supposed to represent our country and represent all people when making decisions about laws which affect our country…?
I’ll likely amend this post if anything amusing related to this story pops up.
as this cat shows when being chased by a dog and wanting nothing to do with him.
