Trouble is an evil elf,
I strive to keep upon my shelf,
but oft times in blink of an eye,
he's at it again,
this little guy...
I'm thinking tonight about how incredibly easily and quickly one's path can be crossed by evil Mr. Trouble.
Let's see now... there's dr. laura n word, tiger woods sexting, mel gibson mouthing... Dr. L is quitting her radio show, Tiger's playing golf like an amateur, and Mel - didn't we already give him a second or third chance?
Who has withstood the ravages of Mr. Trouble? Woody Allen weathered his personal storm with the Mia / SoonYi thing. Eliot Spitzer picked up his pieces. I guess some folks have teflon, some don't...
Don Imus was deeply embroiled in a race-related scandal, but he also recovered and returned to the public eye. Roman Polanski is an enigma of sorts: I wonder if the cultural conscience feels so darkly about what happened to his wife at the hands of the Manson family that the recent rape charges don't matter...
And what of Ira Einhorn (you know: the Unicorn?) - he still has, to this day, legions of devoted fans or followers or whatever you would call them.
Why can Mr. Trouble collapse some people's tents but not others?
One of his latest victims: NY State Senator Neil Breslin. Time for CBS6 to revive the "asking tough questions" advertising promotion!
