Seems like we had heard this story before. Photographer tries to take picture of Alec Baldwin and he gets into a fight with him, and then he takes to Twitter to explain his actions. He says maybe if the photographer had been wearing a hoodie and he had shot the guy it would have all blown over by now. Hoodie reference is not good and any sympathy for Baldwin goes out the window. Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

Last night Alec Baldwin and Michelle Malkin became embroiled in a war of words on Twitter. Baldwin was tweeting about the Troy Davis execution and conservative blogger Michelle Malkin responded with tweets of her own. The whole thing got very ugly, very quickly and Baldwin encouraged his followers to go after Malkin. They went after her with racial slurs, sexist slurs and any other kind of slur they could hurl. So what does this say about us? Can we not have a disagreement without resorting to vile personal insults? I often hear people saying they want politicians to fight fairly and stop going for the gut puch, but why should they do that when the larger community is uncivil? Have we gotten to the point where there is really no expectation of good manners and decency? I read some of the comments sent to Malkin and they were hateful. Under the cloak of anonymity cowards are emboldened to say things they would never have the nerve to say to a person’s face. So the question is do you think we now live in an uncivil society, and if so do you think we can change? Tell me what you think. http://www.mediaite.com/online/alec-baldwins-twitter-war-with-michelle-malkin-davis-is-dead-does-that-make-you-happier/
What happens when a black rapper, Kanye West writes a song and calls it “Niggas in Paris”, and a white actor makes tweets about wanting to make a song called “Niggas in Montauk”. So what happens? Baldwin gets some angry tweets from some black people. They are offended that he had the audacity to use the word, but it is ok for West to use it? That’s the real problem no one should use it, and then we would not have this problem. Tell me what you think.
On Christmas Day the new movie It’s Complicated hits the screen. The premise of the movie is a man cheats on his wife and marries his younger lover then he cheats on her with his first wife and the laughs begin. In light of the Tiger Woods cheating fiasco it is a little hard to find comedy in cheating. I invite you to read a very interesting post on this issue entitled, It’s Disturbing : http://gaj1206.wordpress.com/
