A message for Lindsay Lohan.

Hey there little snowflake,
You are out of control, just ask... anybody. I don’t know you and really have no business telling you how to live your life. So instead I’m going to tell you a story about a camping trip I took as a child. I used to go camping on the Colorado River in Arizona with my parents at least five times a year. We would drive out to Red Rock campgrounds just south of Parker Dam. There would normally be between 5 and 10 families and we would take over the south end of the campground. I always invited my best friend Phinny but he was never allowed... Until one year. On this year he fell from a rope swing into a foot of water and spent the night next to a dead babysitter. I wonder why his parents never let him go camping with us again.

Phinny and I had setup out tent at the edge of our portion of the campground. Normally I would sleep under the stars but Phinny wasn’t used to it and the bugs must have been bad that year. In the tent next to ours was a girl who some family brought along to baby sit their young daughter and her boyfriend. Their second night in the campground they woke us up with their arguing. He was so mad at her. She apparently got into a drinking contest with a sporting team. He loved her and wanted her to go back to school. He had been talking with her mother and they figured he could support her while she went back to school. But she didn’t like that idea at all. They screamed and yelled about many subjects but it always came back to drinking and school. Finally after they were both so pissed at each other they no longer had anything to say they fell asleep and so did Phinny and I. When we woke up in the morning we went for a swim and from the river saw the ambulance. It seemed his last words to her were words of anger because she never woke up. I learned that day that it was possible to get alcohol poisoning. I was shocked, she wasn’t drinking the whole time she was arguing... But she was already dying.

What a sad story. And it's a shame about Lindsey Lohan. Britney Spears. Paris Hilton. Robert Downey Jr.
And so many other young people who don't realize they've got it made. Or do realize it but can't handle it.

Lindsay, denial is not a river in Egypt. I'll save a seat for you, over there next to the solution. Thanks E.
