WTF John Grisham WTF

I love when celebrities say stupid things.

I'm disappointed when people that should have brains say stupid things...

Case in point,  John Grisham

"We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who've never harmed anybody, would never touch a child," he said in an exclusive interview to promote his latest novel Gray Mountain which is published next week.

"But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn."

What the hell is this guy thinking?  I know he was discussing how prisons are overcrowded with "not your avg criminal," but shouldn't a guy that makes a living stringing words together know that there is a huge can of worms opened here.

This isn't the 1500s or 1400s when people married off their young daughters to much older gentlemen. We've become somewhat smarter. Ok, maybe not smarter, but we know that you don't marry girls that young to men that old. It just isn't right.

But John opened his mouth and stupid came out in a big way. We all know that you just don't stumble into that kind of nasty. You go looking for it. And being wasted isn't an excuse.

So John, before you open your mouth again, letting more stupid fall out, think about what you are going to say.

I'm sick of people that don't use their brains at all.

No one just pushes the wrong buttons, John, even if they are drunk especially when it comes to this kind of nasty stuff. Oh and are 16 year old girls not important, no matter how old they look?

Another author I have no respect for. He makes huge sums of money writing books but he obviously has no sense whatsoever.

He has since apologized and I give him a little slack because there are people in the world who don't know how the internet works. Some in my family would easily believe a person can stumble into one of those sites.
