This Week’s Top Scrooge – April 27, 2007
In Hollywood it’s all about image.
Is it any wonder that rude, thoughtless little pig Alec Baldwin is now on the Apology Tour 2007? Sure, he must be feeling bad…after all his daughter has insulted him over and over again for a long, long time. How can an 11 or 12 or whatever-year-old do that to him? Absolute torture.
The Baldwin Tape came in late last week, not in time to make last week’s Top Scrooge, but hey, this week is as good as ever for dishonoring Alec.
Yes, I see that he is doing the public I’m sorry gig…and maybe he means…some of it. However, feeling bad for Alec is a bit hard…after all, how can anyone mistreat Kim Bassinger? (Sorry, personal youthful adoration injected.) I mean The Insulted One has had a history of going off the hook, so this revealing tape is no surprise or shocker.
Has any good come from this unfortunate display of poor parenting made public? Well, people talk and do the water cooler thing, and the family at the dinner table thing, and so on. And when people talk about what’s acceptable behavior versus what isn’t, I’ve got to believe the chance of healing increases quite a bit.
Is Dr. Phil the answer? Let me answer by quoting scripture:
For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you. 2 Corinthians 1:12
God’s grace, not fleshly wisdom…that’s my final answer.
