No Wonder She’s Irresponsible

CNN.com – Lohan’s mother scolds exec over letter – Jul 31, 2006

Calling the letter “ridiculous,” Dina Lohan defended her daughter’s latest tardiness during the filming of “Georgia Rules” which resulted in a warning letter from James G. Robinson, CEO of Morgan Creek Productions.

This was not the first incident 1Her mother admits that it isn’t and concedes that at least one incident caused production to be scheduled around Lindsay’s absence. and Lindsay had probably already been verbally warned several times. It is quite usual in business to expect employees to be on time and to show up when scheduled. It’s also usual that excessive tardiness or absences result in termination (of the job not of the life). A company management can rightfully expect that employees will take responsibility for their own actions and fulfill their employment responsibilites. Lindsay certainly has not been the ideal employee.

Advice to Dina: Encourage your daughter to take responsibility for herself and to be a good employee.

Advice to Lindsay: Become a big star before you start acting like one. You might not be able to get a job.

How Sin City Got It’s Name

Nevada

Las Vegas Review-Journal 1quoted in The Villages Daily Sun, July 26, 2006

Don’t feed the people. That’s the warning from officials in Sin City. A new city ordinance in Las Vegas makes it illegal to give food to homeless people in city parks. The law, which went into effect yesterday, carries a maximum penalty of $1,000 and six months in jail. city council members say the ordinance is aimed at mobile soup kitchens that attract large groups of homeless people in the parks. The American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada says the law is unenforceable and unconstitutional.

No wonder Las Vegas is called, “Sin City.” What kind of “love one another” is this?

I think this is one of the few positions that the ACLU has taken correctly. I don’t know if it’s unconstitutional but it certainly is immoral.
