So sad...

I am obligated to make note of a very sad happening. John Michael Montgomery, a country singer of whom I am fan, was arrested today in Kentucky...

Montgomery was arrested early Thursday and charged with driving under the influence and possession of a controlled drug, jail officials said.

The 41-year-old country singer also was charged with having a prescription drug not in its proper container, two counts of carrying a concealed deadly weapon, disregarding a traffic control device and improper turning, said Darin Kelly, a spokesman for the Lexington jail.

I know it's not funny, but the "improper turning" phrase just tickles me. -Beth

humm...this is not good news. I too like some of his stuff and always thought he was pretty upstanding citizen. I guess everyone is entitled to make some mistakes but we'll have to see how this plays out.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRO!!!!! And say hi to Ruth for me will ya? Post some pics of y'all, too.

Oh, yeah. About John Michael Montgomery. Sure, it's not a good thing to try driving under the influence of anything, but I can't help thinking that this got blown way out of proportion. If he wasn't a celebrity, there would have been no broo-ha-ha/row/whatever you want to call it. But then, we also can't forget the lesson in that well-known Brad Paisley song-"Celebrity", ya know? I know there's alot more to it, and I'm not a judge, so I won't say any more.

I still like his music.
