Topless 3-year-old makes waves at pool: "'What I'm not understanding is the sexualization of a 3-year-old,' Sorel said."
People have taken this puritanical "ideal" way too far. I saw this today in the same day in which I saw a blip in our local paper about how a woman asked another woman "sunbathing topless" (which really meant laying on her stomach, covering her breasts, but unhooking her swimsuit top across her back) because she was concerned about the effect it was having on her children and others.
It's funny. I don't think this country is going to turn into Amsterdam because a woman would like to not have tan lines across her back. I'm pretty sure children aren't going to be endangered because of a topless female toddler in the wading pool.
I'm not for public nudity being OK, and I'm not disagreeing that children might be impressionable. But seriously, let me share something with the mothers of America. It's no secret that children eventually grow into teens and eventually adults with working libidos. You're not going to prevent biology from running its course. You can either raise your children to have a mature and healthy understanding of sexuality, or you can shelter them from anything remotely prurient, and ill-equip them to make good decisions as their choices are no longer directly in your control.
And, for that mom who thinks a naked back is going to put impure thoughts in her kid's head... Truth be told, you might want to avoid the beach at all costs. The first pictures I can ever remember, uh, pleasuring myself to were out of the SI Swimsuit Issue. And this was in the days before the water soaked nipple showing tank top pictures became par for the course.
Mom, just take your kids to Michigan's Adventure Theme Park. Unless, of course, you believe that chomping on a corn dog promotes homosexuality.
Jesus christ people, loosen up.
Hopeless - Did Bob Hope ever say anything funny? By Christopher Hitchens: "The next time I caught the act was at the British Embassy in Washington, where the ambassador did the intro and tried to wow the crowd by telling 'Bob's' favorite reminiscence, which was that he left England at the age of 3, having discovered that he could never become king. These are the kinds of joke that keep things going at golf clubs or Rotary dinners: They are harmless and sentimental and have no intrinsic humor. A Bob Hope joke was no laughing matter: It was a bland attempt at what we would now yawningly call inclusiveness."
OK, so maybe Bob Hope wasn't Lenny Bruce or Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor or Red Foxx. Maybe Bob Hope wasn't even Red Skelton. Jesus, I don't know. And you know what? I don't care. This type of "reporting" on an opinion piece is just another example (see article by Mitch Albom on Eminem, linked below) of that snarky style of attitude laced journalistic bullshit that somehow passes for true reporting.
Did Bob Hope get booed while trying to entertain the troops? Maybe. Hell, probably. But who the hell else showed the dogged determination and single minded generosity it took to embrace and support our armed forces EVEN WHEN, IN VIETNAM, IT WAS NOT A POPULAR THING TO DO?
Listen, look at Kurt Cobain. When he died he was widely eulogized not for his shortcomings, but for the greatness (whatever, that's not my opinion) of his lyrics and the way he bared his soul through his art. I don't seem to remember a lot of articles that talk about his drug addiction, probable poor parenting, or how he made for an awful role model for the legions of fans who supported him.
I'm sure one article like this on Hope isn't going to change anybody's mind. But listen, the man's intentions were noble. Let him rest in peace.
No one criticizes Mother Theresa saying, "Well, sure she fed the poor of India, but Spaghetti-o's lukewarm out of the can sure tasted better than what she was cooking."
Equibase Company LLC: "4 Jaguar Lord: stalked pace 3 wide,rallied 1/4,drew off,easily
2 That and This: dueled rail,couldn't hold off winner
9 Dearest Enemy: improved position late
1 Teazabull: dueled,gave way 1/4
6 Sheshe's Hawk: saved ground to no avail
7 Do the Dance: passed tired rivals
3 Iv in the Heather: faded
5 Extreme Miss: through early
8 Deposit Thatticket: faded"
So go the results from Race 9 last night at GLD. Dearest Enemy now takes the reins (ha ha) as my favorite horse at the track. Simply put, this horse is responsible for just shy of $300 in winnings for me in two separate races. On June 3rd, I bet Dearest Enemy on a $2 WPS bet that returned $74. Last night, I saw two horses (obviously Jaguar Lord and That and This) that I liked as much or better than Dearest Enemy. So I threw the trifecta in a box, and watched Dearest Enemy drive from worst to third in the last three furlongs under heavy encouragement. It paid out $420.60 on the $2 trifecta, which returned half that amount to me on the $1 bet.

Here's an experiment, in the spirit of "Jaime Pressley's breasts" that I think I'd like to try.
ASIAN SCHOOLGIRL UPSKIRT PHOTO PICS
Choke on that MSN. Hey, at least I know I'm being indexed by some sort of search engine somewhere, right? How about,
GOLDEN SHOWER PORNO EROTICA
And for good measure
ANAL LICKING PUPPY FUCKER
Hi guys! Welcome to my website! Please refrain from all canine anal licking, and keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times! Thank You!
Memories of a Sex Kitten
A blog I happened to find in the "Ten Most Recently Updated Blogs" section on blogger.com this morning. For eight days in, she's certainly made a good start. I'll be back to read more, assuming there's more to read.
On a side note, what's the ettiquete for linking blog to blog? I'm providing this link without permission (not that it's a big deal, no one comes by for a visit really anyway - 249 and counting since last year). Am I obligated to ask them if it's OK to link?
If Cynderany finds out, and wishes me to remove the link, please feel free to let me know.
MSN Search: Jaime Pressley Breast -- More Useful Everyday
OK, apparently, if you would really like to see Jamie Pressley's breasts, link number three brings you directly back here. I don't know whether to be amused or disturbed. I do know one thing, that if you're not using google you're a complete moron.
Good luck looking for Jaime Pressley's cans here. I can't even upload a picture of my dog without subscribing to blogger for cash (methinks).
