The Hogan Fiasco

I normally don’t comment on pop culture, because it’s usually too stupid to worry about. However, the Hogans have really been acting like huge insensitive jerks.

I loved “Hogan Knows Best” and used to watch it faithfully. I thought they were a cute family. Clearly that was all for the cameras, since it turns out they seem to hate each other.

But this Nick Hogan accident thing is outrageous. Nick decides to drink, then get into a souped up car and drag race, permanently disables his buddy John, and then not only whines about having to go to jail, but has conversations with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hulk, about how John had it coming!

I’m a strong believer in Karma, but I don’t believe for a second that God was working through Nick Hogan to teach John a lesson. Nick Hogan is no Gideon.

The Hogans, with their eleventy-jillion dollars, should be offering every kind of help they can think of to John and his family, and Terry & Linda should tell Nick to shut up and stop whining about getting what he deserves. If anything, Nick got off light.

I’m serving notice. If my kids break the law and hurt someone, I’m not bailing them out, I’m not trying to get them out of trouble. In life, you do good, good happens, you do bad, bad happens. It really is that simple.

    I’m fairly disgusted by the way this family’s handling the whole thing, too. And I’m guessing this ‘divorce’ is strictly for financial gain. If the money is being divided and fought over, then the Grazianos will have a hard time coming after it, and probably can’t afford to keep paying a lawyer while they drag it all out. And have you heard the taped conversations from jail? They’re speaking in code. It’s bizarre.

    Aaah celebrities.. . proof that the aristocracy of Europe were only wrong one one point: they didn’t worry enough about that pesky popularity with the commoners.

    Also a word of caution: someday your kids will probably find this and read it. . . I wonder what they will think? Still not as bad as the guy I met who intended to teach his kids self-reliance by telling them to jump out of a tree and into his arms but then not even trying to catch them. . .

    I hope they will think “Oh, dad’s not going to bail me out if I make stupid decisions, so I’d better make smart ones instead.”
