Not That You Asked….And Not That it's Any of My Business
Posted 1/25/2013 8:59:00 AM

Some random thoughts from the perspective of one of the 7 billion earth inhabitants….I reserve the right to change my view if/when I learn more about any given topic.

Julie Devereaux on:

Brent Musburger - you give anyone an open mic and sooner or later they're gonna say something that can be construed as stupid…and I speak from experience.

Lance Armstrong - first of all, I think it's pretty amazing that certain additives can enable the human body to be faster, stronger and have more stamina and not kill you…and where can I get some! (kidding….sort of). I read his book "It's Not About the Bike" many years ago and was rightfully inspired. "Dopey" or not, I still think he's an amazing athlete. I wish he could have been strong enough to tell the truth sooner. And he has done some really, really good things in his life. I think we've all, at one time or another, been less than honest and we all have to live with the consequences. Thank goodness for forgiveness and people who see beyond our shortcomings.

Elin & Tiger - well, I COULD say "a tiger doesn't change his stripes"…and there was a time when I would've said "oh hell no! do not go back into the tiger's den"…and I've heard people much wiser than I say "when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time"….and "you teach people how to treat you"….but I don't know all the intricacies of their relationship nor should I. I have my own relationships to navigate, thank you very much. But wouldn't it be nice to be told the truth because for me, it's not so much the "cheating" as the lies that are told to hide the activity. Tell the truth and let me decide if I want to be in relationship with someone who wants to be intimate with others.
