The 800 pound gorilla in the room

So, a trusted reporter in a trusted newspaper has confirmed the 800 pound gorilla in the room (without mentioning sources). If you must, you can read it here. I would still rather keep discussion of this issue far away from this site. Why? It bothers me. I’m sorry – I have no better reason than that. I am unable to articulate my reasons any better than that. I’m old-fashioned. I didn’t grow up in the time of reality TV when people seem to think that nothing is too embarrassing, too personal or just too stupid to keep to themselves. (I mean, why do those people go on the Jerry Springer show?) Bottom line for me: this is a very personal and private matter that a family is trying to deal with and that I feel I have no business discussing or dissecting in a public manner for the whole world to see. And, since this is my site, I will not allow the conversation to go there.
