Lindsay Lohan, Again

What is with this girl? She just got out of rehab and already she's in trouble again. This is really not hard to understand, is it? When you have a problem, with alcohol or drugs or whatever it may be, you do not come straight out of rehab and put yourself in a position where you will be sorely tempted to take up your addiction again. What was she thinking having a party immediately after coming out of rehab?

I want to see Lindsay as that cute little girl in Parent Trap, but she's growing up, and not doing a very good job of it. I hate the bad examples all these celebrities are setting for my kids - especially my daughter. I mean, yes, she's got friends who do things that are just as bad so she doesn't need celebrities to set the bad example. Every time we talk about the choices these kids are making and the messes they are making of their lives, Beth is sure to tell us, "It's their choice." Well, yes, it is their choice, but is it a good choice? She's rather non-committal on that one. She doesn't want to say that they're doing something wrong.

Is it written in stone that teenagers have to mess their lives up before they finally grow up and get it together? I just keep hoping that Beth can learn from their bad examples - both from the examples of her friends and also from the examples of these so-called celebrities, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and the likes. Don't do stupid things! It could mess up your life forever.

  1. Lindsay Spears-Hilton drive me crazy. They have it all and are throwing it away. Who are their advisors, anyway? The whole thing makes me very sad, both the train wrecks they have become and the amount of media time that is spent reporting it ad nauseam.

    (Michele sent me, BTW)!


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
