IS IT A SPOILER IF NO ONE WATCHES THE SHOW?

IS IT A SPOILER IF NO ONE WATCHES THE SHOW?

So last week Jack & Bobby entered television history as one of a handful of shows where a prominent character has an abortion. Heck, even Sex & the City chickened out and they explored the sensitive subject of sperm taste…so that tells you.

This was big.
And whoa was I surprised when Young Missy knocks on the door and says “I want to have an abotion.”
That’s right, they didn’t disguise it in lovely “procedure” language.
And Grace quickly packs Missy up and took her across state lines for an abortion sans parental consent.
Huuuge. Some would like to see what Grace did criminalized.
Then in slo-mo montage fashion we see her go into the clinic, see Grace waiting for her in the waiting room and then see the hug as Missy comes out of the office (of course, in what I can only suppose was a sop to the evangelicals or an ode to the Godfather, interspersed among Missy’s abortion scenes are scenes of Bobby getting baptised in the Episcopal church.)

Amazed, I stayed tuned for “scenes from next week.”
I mean oooh is Missy’s preacher dad gonna be mad. I bet she has to move in with Jack & Bobby!!
Uh oh.
No angry preacher man scenes. Instead: screeching tires, deer in the road, ominous narrator voice:
“A tragic accident will cost one of them their life…”
So now, spoiler warning if…I dunno…you had to tape Jack & Bobby last night.
Seriously, if you wanna wait for Sunday’s ‘Easy View’…go read this post, right now.

Okay, now that those wackos are gone.
I was very worried about Missy when I saw those promos.
Nothing says morality tale like girl who has abortion getting killed in car crash a week later.
And…well.
You know what happened.
Poor drunk Missy decides to climb in the back of a pick up truck…not the backseat–the flatbed. She was standing in the back when the truck hit a deer. Of course, her boyfriend Randy was also standing in the back of the truck, but he hadn’t had an abortion — so Missy was killed.
Don’t get me wrong, Missy needed to die. I suggested so myself last year.
But on the heels of her making a decision rarely seen on television, her death sends entirely the wrong message to people, whoever they may be, who take their cues from Jack & Bobby.
In an episode that seemed hellbent on making some point about drunk driving, underage drinking and alcoholism, it’s too bad they chose the only victim that would send the message that if you have an abortion, the almighty God himself will strike you dead.
It’s too bad, really. I liked it better when I didn’t like this show because it was dumb.

MUST.STOP.LAUGHING.

Elmer Sapp, 78, and Alfred Hurd, 70, were hunting south of East Wenatchee on Monday when Hurd got out of a pickup truck and chased a bird down an embankment.

Sapp followed and found his hunting partner lying on the ground, according to Chelan County Sheriff Mike Harum. Sapp then went back to the pickup, flagged down a motorist, told the motorist what happened and then collapsed.

Autopsies were to be performed on both men.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAHAHAHAH

Oh, Karma, please don’t come get me.

DIDN’T KNOW IT NEEDED TO BE SAID…

Tuesday, April 26th, 2005 by Dawn Summers


DIDN’T KNOW IT NEEDED TO BE SAID…

But, oh well.

The lovely Jessica sent me a link to a story about Maggie Gyllenhaal refusing to apologize for her comments.
In a statement today she characterizes her comments that “America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way,” as courageous.

“Not to have the courage to ask these questions of ourselves is to betray the victims of 9/11,” she said in a new statement issued by her publicist.

Now, this surprised me since the whole gist of my post was that there was no way she could have meant that 9/11 was the fault of its victims in that ‘well, the bitch had it coming kinda way’ you hear from abusive spouses all the time.

But, lo and behold, just hours after reading that story, Signor Ferrariendorsed Gyllenhaal’s intransigence: There is no question that there is a causal relationship between America’s actions in the world and 9/11. There is a reason why America was attacked.

Hmmm…I wonder if Gyllenhaal (and Signor, since he’s more likely to read this site) also think Sadaam Hussein is to blame in “some way”?

I don’t know, I guess a lot of time has passed, so things aren’t as clear as they used to be.

Things like, “America” wasn’t attacked. Four planes of sleepy passengers, two buildings filled with middle managers, traders, cleaning women, waiters, etc. and Pentagon employees were “attacked,” or murdered, whichever you like.
Attacking America would involve a declaration of war of some kind, petitioning the U.N., targeting America’s armed forces.

Holding a little girl at knifepoint on her way to Disneyland and then slamming her plane into a building so that she disintegrates in a ball of fire?

Not so much.

“Collateral damage” implies that there was some other main target. It doesn’t describe deaths that predictably flow from taking civilian targets hostage and using them to destroy other civilian targets.

It’s good that everyone seems to agree that the deaths were horrific, but horror lessens when couched with “yeah, that was awful…but everyone hates that guy.”

Who cried when Jeffrey Dahmer was murdered in prison?

You can be pissed at America’s reprehensible acts all you like.

Seriously.

Impose an embargo on American goods, forbid your citizens from traveling to American shores, don’t invest in American businesses, file charges in the World Court, denounce the American way of life to anyone who will listen. See also Castro, Fidel.

Hell, declare war on the U.S. if you want.

However, don’t break into my neighbor’s house, slit their throats and expect me to ‘say well, that’s what we get for selling weapons to Iran. Hmmm, I wonder if they had two bedrooms or three?’

9/11 was the fault of the sick freaks who carried it out. The blame – in its entirety- lies at their feet.

Now that I’ve cleared that up we’ll reset the ‘When will Maggie Apologize’ clock.
