Irritated

Most days a lot of what I hear or read in the news makes me sad. Plane crashes, American troops killed, the economic downturn, etc. We all know what is going on, at least I hope we do. I refuse to be one of those people that is too disgusted by what is going on to not pay attention. There is too much at stake. This world is definitely changing and maybe not for the better in some circles, but I will stay educated. I think it is important. I want to be able to discuss Sonia Sotomayor and North Korea and have my own opinion. There are too many from my generation that don't have a clue what is going on overseas or let alone outside their own four walls. That is my little rant for the day.

Nope, I lied...I have one more rant....

I had to go to Oklahoma City last night to have my stitches taken out. YAY! I stayed in the night in Edmond and got to see Kody. Double YAY! I left the house around 6:45 AM today to drive to work. I was driving up the turnpike listening to Jack and Ron on KYIS (98.9FM). Normally I like them, they keep things light and funny. Nothing too harmful. Today I did not feel like that was the case.

A listener had written in and had a question. She just found out her husband of three years was addicted to Internet porn. She had no idea this was going on and he had confessed it to her because he wanted help to overcome the addiction. I'm not sure why she emailed Jack and Ron for advise, maybe because they are men and may have friends that have been through this sort of thing or had been themselves. Anyway, she asked them what they thought she could do to help her husband. I was sick to my stomach when I heard what they had to say. They started going on about how she obviously wasn't committed to the relationship because she didn't know this was going on. If she was, they said she would have caught him before he told her. They went on about how it was "probably" her fault because he was obviously missing something in the relationship and he should drop her (HIS WIFE!) and get a little "hot slice" somewhere else. I was outraged. I know it is radio and there is an entertainment factor, but I thought they seriously crossed the line. In no way is this woman responsible for her husband's addiction. I think it was brave of her husband to come forward and ask for her help and I pray that they find people that can help them in a supportive way.

Now I am done with my rants.

Twilight Update:
I read during lunch today. It just so happens that the portion of Eclipse I was reading today was taking place on June 4th. What is today you ask? Oh yeah, June 4th! What a coincidence! I have to say, I think Jacob is utterly annoying. He is so inconsiderate of Bella and Edward's love! Too much name calling...

I am catching up on your blog at last! I must say, I loved Jack & Ron when I lived in the OKC area.... BUT they were seriously OVER THE LINE with their advice on this sort of thing. I think they like the shock jock value of it. I only hope the poor people who are dumb enough to ask them for relationship advice are doing it for entertainment value!!!! I got to where whenever they would do the crazy love story (or whatever it was called) I would change the channel. That's when I got "converted" (Lol) and started listening to K-Love. Shame we don't have one in Tulsa...
