It’s a motorcycle rally of biblical proportions, the largest in the entire world. Bikers from all over the map descend upon the tiny city of
Sturgis SD and party. Some women have their cloths painted on at body art stands while the guys get permanent ink at tattoo shops. There are stands selling everything from motorcycle parts to hemp jewelry. And some of the most amazing bands in the world play at this weeklong event that is held the first week in August every year.
This year one of the amazing bands that played was the Zach Brown
band. But you won’t hear about what a great show they put on because something controversial happened at Sturgis, something Zach Brown is probably wishing would have stayed in Sturgis. The good news, he got a strike. The bad news, he was midget bowling! That’s right, midget bowling is a popular sport at Sturgis and it seems a lot of people recorded the “event” on their phones and downloaded to YouTube.
So now Zach Brown is under fire for violating what some people
claim is disrespect for basic human dignity. The little person he was using as a bowling ball claims midget bowling is safer than midget tossing and he was entirely okay with being used as a ball but the Little People of America are not impressed.
I guess I’m on the fence with this one. The Little People in America need money too and it’s a shame some earn a living by using their bodies as bowling balls but if it’s okay with them then who are we to judge?
There used to be side show freaks at the fairs and men and women prostitute their bodies for money so I guess it’s no different. That doesn’t make it right but does it mean Zach Brown has no respect for human dignity? What say you?
Poor Gabby Douglas
The 16 year old “flying squirrel” Gabby Douglas stole hearts and
won gold medals at the Olympics this year. But unfortunately the news today is focused on her mother who filed for bankruptcy back in January. Was it really necessary for the press to report that? Why do we have to dredge up something negative whenever something good happens? It sounds like Gabby had a pretty rough childhood but her mom did everything she could to make it work. I’m sure it wasn’t easy providing for four children while receiving no child support and
being on disability.
I love Cinderella stories like this one. Gabby was a poor kid with nothing who used her brains and her body to make history. I think she’s a wonderful role model for the kids of today. I just hope the press can back off for a while so Gabby can enjoy her newly found fame without being relentlessly questioned about her mother’s finances and her father’s rap sheet.
Gabby Douglas – Rock On!
