Some past mistakes apparently don't go away

Resurrecting such ancient stuff just doesn’t seem fair. As much as I dislike President Obama, I wouldn’t have wanted him pillaged by the public over cocaine use decades ago.

But even had it been an issue, I guess it wouldn’t have mattered. Nowadays illegal drug use takes a backseat on the moral equivalency scale to certain words spoken.

So I wave goodbye to Paula Deen and hope Snoop, LL, Ludacris, Wayne, Eddie, Chris, Jamie and Steve don’t get pounded too hard for past utterances. If the worst should happen, they should remember that when one door closes, another opens.

I’ve heard Tony Bennett is looking for backup singers.
