huh??

I just very excitedly turned the tv to fox to watch the results of SYTYCD only to see that a special episode of Dateline has replaced it. I know I know.. it's huge. Two very famous people passed away which is very sad, but they couldn't play this on NBC?? But really... I do have a heart and I was shocked when I heard that MJ passed. That's crazy right? So sad. Not that I was the BIGGEST fan ever except for the few classics, and yes, he did have a pretty sketch reputation. But he was a father, brother, son, friend, etc, to many people.. it's always sad when it happens.. especially so unexpectedly.

I'm sure every one's heard the news about Gov. Sanford as well. Another wonderful tidbit to make us all look so good here in SC. I hate that what he did and what his family is going through has to be such a public issue. Don't get me wrong, what he did was completely wrong and hurtful, but do we really need to be in the center of it? Yes, he's a public figure... i get that. But this is a very private issue. Something that needs to be worked out between him and his wife. And don't get me started on that. I've heard such ugly comments about her today. Some people are in uproars because she is *as of right now* choosing to stay with him and try to forgive him. I don't think anyone really knows what they would do in that situation. It's so easy to say that you'd leave immediately. And if *God forbid* you've ever had to make that decision or if you ever do, and you do leave, that's your decision. Every marriage is different and what might be right for one person, may not be right for another. Does that mean we should judge her, calling her weak or stupid or worse? Frankly it's none of our business and I think it's sick that everyone thrives off of other people's misery. Seriously, his private emails were leaked all over the internet. I can't imagine how all this is making his wife and kids feel. Good thing the kids are on summer vacay.. imagine going to school after that!

Moovvvvinggggg right along ~
My parents are in San Antonio safe and sound... but they have melted away today. I think it was a little too hot for them. Which blows my mind seeing as how it's pretty damn hot here today. Like take your breath away hot. They said Charlie looks good, even though he's lost a good bit of weight and they should be sending me some pics tonight.

Ugh! Amen about Gov. Sanford. I am also a South Carolinian.. born and raised. It breaks my heart that this has been such a public issue. My facebook page is full of friends making horrible comments about it... making it seem like cheating on your wife is a Republican thing to do. I just want to scream at every one to keep their opinions to themselves. I even read one horrible comment that involved feeding laxative coated candy to his kids. I mean really people?! His kids have nothing to do with this, stop dragging the whole family into it. I don't condone what he did... AT.ALL., but I really wish the media would drop it now.

Weird... SYTYCD played here last night. Nigel gave a little speil about the loss of Farrah Fawcet and MJ, but then the show went on as scheduled.
Wonder why it didn't there?
