Miss California Resolution a 'Stupid' Act

My LTE condemning Rep. Jay Love and all who signed onto the commendation of Miss California appeared in today's Tuscaloosa News

Miss California resolution a ‘stupid' act

Dear Editor: Rep. Jay Love's introduction of House Resolution 727 commending Miss California for her opinion on gay marriage made me wish that being stupid caused extreme physical discomfort to those committing stupid acts. In other words, it made me wish that stupid hurt.

A few things about this senseless, useless brouhaha:

1. Miss California hasn't a clue what she is talking about. Gay marriage is not legal in the United States. It is legal in some states, which make up the United States, but not the entire country.

2. Although I disagree with Miss California on gay marriage, I feel she shouldn't be criticized for expressing her opinion. Perez Hilton shouldn't have asked the question if he didn't want to know what she thought. I respect freedom of speech even for those I disagree with.

We have far, far more important issues in this state to worry about than a spat between an inarticulate, misinformed, bimbo, beauty queen and a gay entertainment blogger. Who really cares what either of them have to say about anything? How is it relevant to anything happening in Alabama?
