TV Stars

Ben and Bennie did just fine tonight on CNN -- tried to leave comment there but of course Blogger won't cooperate.

Maybe there's heavy traffic.

I hope it's mostly good.

You know I tuned into CNN last night because I was curious and interested in listening to Bennie's opinion on the subject matter. I am sorry to say, however, that I think Bennie did a disservice to his cause when he claimed his willingness to get "down and dirty". There is nothing particularly articulate or persuasive about that.

P.S. I wish Ben and Bennie well.

Just for the record, Connie is one of the opinion that Ashley's parents are some sort of monsters. She was part of the bombardment at my blog from "the other side" who got down and dirty way before I expressed an opinion on the matter.

I wish Connie well.

Also thanks for your kind thoughts, TC.

Connie, what he said was that he was willing to get down and dirty in reaction to some who've gotten down and dirty first. The interviewer challenged him on this because of some strong words in his blog and his response was fine in the circumstances.

I can only imagine how difficult it must be to refrain from reacting in a visceral manner on a subject so deeply personal --

How's that for a response, Bennie?

Blogger won't co-operate? That's unusual!

Just checked out the ben&bennie site thanks for the link to it. The Ashley story had been massive in the UK and everyone has expressed a lot of opinions on the matter.
I really enjoyed the blog and i think Ben&Bennie did a great job of getting their opinion across, as for being 'down and dirty' i am sure worse things could of been said. In the circumstances i think he was very restrained.
