So, one of Gayle Ruzicka’s children has passed away. She has a lot of them, and I am not privy to her family history, so I have no idea where Josh Ruzicka fell in the mix, but I would like to feel compassion for her. And yet, when she feels no compassion for anyone ELSE, how do I do this? This is a woman who has destroyed lives, all in the name of her GOD and HER idea of morality. How does one empathize with that?
I guess I will do my best. Godspeed, Josh Ruzicka. I don’t know why you died, at such a young age, but I hope you have found peace.
Gayle? This pain you must feel? Remember it. Don’t ever act or opine or try to force others to bend to your moral will, without thinking that perhaps it could have dire consequences. Please.
I heard tonight on the news that Copper Hills High School is giving out a beer stein and a champagne glass as souvenirs for junior prom. Apparently, they have been doing this for years. And a FATHER is up in arms about this, saying it is inappropriate.
I know, I know, you are waiting for me to lambast him, but wait… Beer steins and champagne glasses? I watched this news story, and thought, WHAT? And no one has commented on this until NOW? These are HIGH SCHOOL KIDS. Boys and girls who don’t even have the sense to move out of the road when a CAR is driving toward them. And this is Utah. We don’t even let our children have CLUBS that might even NOD toward acceptance of “alternative” lifestyles (see above note about Ruzicka).
Why has this been going on for years? Why don’t you just HAND these kids a GUN and encourage some Russian roulette? Maybe give them some cyanide and a recipe for Kool-aid? PEOPLE… Kids do NOT need encouragement for destructive behavior, and teenagers do NOT have much luck with self-monitoring or shut off buttons.
Okay, I know that this whole issue is probably silly, and that it IS, after all, just some glassware, but it IS glassware that is used–and identified–expressly with alcohol. If you are going to give a souvenir, give them a chastity belt keyring, or a Friends of Bill T-shirt.
Stay AWAY from the alcohol endorsements. This is UTAH people. You’re known for extreme control. This is a time to use it. Don’t encourage alcohol use in mutants. And these are teenagers. Again, they WALK DOWN THE STREET AND FACE DOWN CARS LIKE RABID BULLS. Mutants. Don’t give them any ammunition. Sheesh.
