I totally agree with you on all counts. And add to that, he immediatley apologized for what he did and went into rehab. I know people who know Mr. Gibson personally, and they believe he is truly sorry for what he did and is working hard to avoid it ever happening again.

It really is all about the "celebrity culture" and this weird "holier than thou" thing that's always been a part of American life but has for some reason exploded in the past few years. People these days seem actually to glory in the missteps of others, as if they make their own missteps somehow less egregious. Not a philosophy I want any part of. I just figure we're all pretty much doofuses, whatever our education or cultural or financial standing, and it's just plain dumb luck -- and/or a loving God -- that we don't do a Mel Gibson or a Michael Richards on some misbegotten Saturday night.
