Life in a fairly poor and rural county can be challenging. It's all to easy to poke fun and be overly critical, so I try to follow the motto, "Live and Let Live." I know I'm far from perfect.
But still - sometimes I read the local rag and sigh. Our county's drug and alcohol commission recently sponsored a social function, a Buffettman beach party, featuring a Jimmy Buffett impersonator.
Really? You are counseling drug and alchohol abstinence and yet you are highlighting a singer whose most famous song lyric is "Wasted Away in Margaritaville"? Who is trying to trademark the name "Tiger Blood" for his own line of Vodka/Energy drinks? Who also markets his own brand of beer and readymix margaritas?
Oh, the irony...
