Bong News

Eight arrested in Phelps bong case:

"We've now learned that since investigators began trying to build a case, they've made eight arrests: seven for drug possession and one for distribution. These are arrests that resulted as the sheriff's department served search warrants. We've also learned that the department has located and confiscated that bong. Sources say the owner of the bong was trying to sell it on eBay for as much as $100,000. The owner, who wasn't even at the party, is one of the eight now charged."

This all just got me to thinking how ridiculous it is that we put athletes and stars on a pedestal.

This week we find out a baseball star, Alex Rodriguez, not only used steroids and cheated to be as good as he was, but stone cold lied about it on national TV.

Then singing/dancing star Chris Brown beats up his girlfriend.

Don't think the kids aren't paying attention. They are.

How we handle all this will say a lot to our children.
