BORN THIS WAY ...

As stepmother to a daughter with Down Syndrome, I have been watching a new reality show titled “Born This Way”.  It is a little gem and I would encourage all of you out there to check it out.  It is a reality show that is heartwarming, poignant, uplifting and edifying.  No one is dating while naked; no one is x-raying their ass to prove they don’t have butt implants, and no one is trying to get a bachelor to marry them.  It is about real people with real struggles and after I watch it I always feel GOOD.

My Lauren is 29 years old.  I have been in her life for many years now and have been around lots of kids with Down Syndrome and other mental disabilities.  At first I felt a little nervous about how I should communicate or behave around these kids and I soon realized that I had nothing to fear.  They are more normal than NORMAL people.  I think their greatest characteristic is that they are innately kind.  Lauren can be a pain in the neck sometimes, but her heart is bigger…

ACADAMY AWARDS CONTROVERSY ...

No one claps for me when I come to work in the morning.I make in a year what you all make in an hour and I sit at a desk and do as I'm told.  You all get to do something you love that pays you tons of money.I’d be happy to be ignored by the Academy if I had a check with six zeros in it.You folks take yourselves far too seriously.You’re actors and entertainers.Boycott the awards if you want but I can tell you, not much is going to change. 

Look at it this way … it’s like … say you work for Wal-Mart.And then say you want to unionize.And then say Wal-Mart says FUCK YOU.And then Wal-Mart CLOSES your store and lays you and all your friends off so you can’t unioniz…
