Huh?

Last week, Pope Benedict declared that he was not ready to accept the current opinion regarding the human cause of global warning. He suggests that basing this belief on dogma, rather than firm scientific evidence is irresponsible. "It is important for assessments in this regard to be carried out prudently, in dialogue with experts and people of wisdom, uninhibited by ideological pressure to draw hasty conclusions." Uh... okaaaayyy. 'scuse me Your Holiness? Carry that argument further, and you're out of a job, the way I see it.

And today, maybe yesterday, Miss Jamie Lynn Spears announced that at 16, she's expecting a baby. She's not concerned, though, that she might be a little ill equipped to raise a child, after all she's got Britney and her momma to guide her. 'Cause they've both done such a fabulous! job as parents...

None of this (what I wrote) was especially nice, but geeze I needed to give my head a shake and get it out of there. And now, I feel so much better.

You'll hear no reprimands from this quarter. (Go, girl.)

If Jamie Lynn did get knocked up in California, her BF could get arrested for statutory rape. Of course, he won't since she's a celebrity (sorta).

Yeah, I've been rolling my eyes at this kind of stuff myself. Criminy. Fiddling while Rome burns.

As for Ms. Jamie Lynn, I suspect that Disney was looking for Britney 2.0 and there's a morality clause which will ensure that she's dropped like a hot potato. I hope she saved enough of her salary to hire a nanny to help care for the baby, and I sincerely hope the little one will have as good a life as possible under the circumstances.
