Actually, I was making light of the "contraversy", not bashing her. I hardly think 3 short sentences of jest qualifies as a rant.
The response was mostly due to the fact that the message board had been referenced in the paper's front page and was still being posted weeks later. The entire thing was blown out of proportion and assumed half truths were taken as fact. People who don't even live in the same region of the state were writing letters to either attack or defend her. We are seeing some of the hardest times the country has faced in decades, and people are crying foul over a token title for a yearly event. Each week friends and family members are losing loved ones fighting in Iraq and Afganastan, and even more are helping thier family member cope with the physical and mental rehabilitation necessary to even attempt to bring them back to a normal life. The mere fact that the Pow Wow Queen issue escalated to what it did is possibly the greatest tragedy. It shows how accusatory and petty people really are.
That, Jeff, is a rant.
