    I never said I should, nor do I. But don’t rely on google for your answers. Dogs that are neglected or left in houses after people move out and leave them there are left for over a week sometimes. I have seen this, and I have dealt with this.

    A perfectly healthy dog will be fine without water until someone discovers a dead body. from the smell or sound of a gunshot.

    Now be a good little boy, and go google a response to this.

    With any luck this would stop shows that exploit people’s addictions and depression but who am I kidding people love to watch people going through a hard time on TV because it makes them feel better about themselves. That’s why shows like that will continue to be made and people’s problems exploited. Because in our society it makes and easy dollar to turn a camera on a person who is suffering.than it does really helping the person behind the scenes and making them better,

    People who are into country music most definitely know who Mindy McCready is. Her first album came out in 96 and went 2x platinum. Since then, it’s been a slow, downhill slide, but trust me, her big hit, “Guys Do It All The Time,” still gets a surprising amount of airplay in a lot of areas. I’m not a fan of modern country, but living in Tennessee it’s impossible to ignore.

    I had never heard of her until I saw this story, so I read the Wiki page on her. She had a pretty up personal life. Co-dependency, depression, dramatic and violent relationships, drugs, suicide attempts…seems like she was bound and determined to self-destruct. Too bad.

    I can see a debate about rehab under public scrutiny but don’t you think it would be more fair to gather statistics about drug related deaths after rehab in any shape or form and compare instead of ignorantly proclaiming “fail”? If you did in fact do the research then you should share that with us as well. I love young Turks for the broad spectrum of new they cover but the short sighted opinions as a summary are getting old and frustrating to watch. P.s. not a fan of celebrity rehab.
