Mar 31st 2011 2:04PMChris Brown "got in a domestic dispute" with Rihanna? Seriously? He beat her up - badly - and everyone knows it - why euphemise when you're writing about his bad publicity anyway?
Dec 2nd 2010 12:00PMWhat kind of sexist 50s garbage is this? He's a "former football player" and she's got a lot of stuff going on - maybe he should concentrate on supporting her in her professional endeavors? Yes, balance is a good thing, but maybe this so-called close friend should let them figure it out for themselves rather than projecting some archaic ideal of what a good wife is supposed to be and do.
Jun 24th 2010 4:47PMThis reminds me of a lot of zero-tolerance stuff we do that penalizes all the good kids more than the bad. The no-weapons ban doesn't scare the kids who would actually bring weapons to school - it just makes it so the kid who jokingly points his finger at his friend on the playground gets suspended. The no-drugs ban doesn't keep the stoners from lighting up - it just makes it so the girl who pops an Advil to deal with menstrual cramps ended up with detention. The city-wide curfew for under-18s doesn't stop delinquency - it just keeps the rule-following kids home when they could be out having rule-following fun with their other rule-following friends.
So sure, why not outlaw best friends? It won't do anything to curb the mean girls, and I can't help picturing sad fourth grade girls casting looks of longing across the playground at each other after they've been separated for spending too much time together, but a one-size-fits-nobody policy is easy to enforce, right?
