It appears for some of us that word verification has suddenly appeared on our comments section that won't go away. It drove me nuts trying to make it go back to normal.
Inger at Desert Canyon Living has found the solution.

This worked like a charm. Thank you so much Inger.
It has been a rough couple of months for me as I have watched people I thought were positive role models turn out to be just nasty old men. Too often we judge actors by the roles they play. That is so wrong but a trap many of us fall into, especially me. I guess the best we can say is that they are good actors and were convincing in their roles.
The first star to crash and burn was Stephen Collins who had me convinced he was as decent as his character. I really liked that guy and the show 7th Heaven. It was clean, wholesome with great characters.
Then to hear him admit on tape that he encouraged children to fondle him was sickening. He was a better actor than I thought for I never caught a whiff of his being a pedophile by watching him.
The Bill Cosby debacle about drugging and raping women is shoving me over the cliff of distrust. This was America's Dad. He was funny, he was endearing, he was the perfect husband and father. I've been known to quote him. Well crap.
Now women are coming out of the woodwork with stories of his alleged drugging and raping. I really want this to be untrue but there is entirely too much smoke. Twenty women so far with a 15 year old in the mix. His silence is deafening.
I am hearing from insiders in the business that he was a known womanizer. While I hadn't heard those stories, they would be easier to take. That would have been a major disappointment considering his image, but that he resorted to knock out drugs to have sex with the women is mind boggling.
I thought drugging was the option of guys who had no chance using the normal ways of bedding a girl. But I guess if the guy is really lazy and can't be bothered with nuances of seduction, he slips them a pill and proceeds to "get er done." To me that has all the charm of raping a corpse. Makes one wonder if he might not be lacking in his equipment and doesn't want anyone to see.
It is a sad day for those of us wanting to believe in the good guys and it rattles our conception of being able to assess another's worth. Sure am getting tired of all these clay feet.
I will still keep believing the best of people but cases like these do shake up my resolve a bit.
I am curious. Have these stories rattled you like they have me? Perhaps you thought it not unusual behavior for a mega star or are you just not interested?
