Take The Hint

"Deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier and not the top tier." --Rick Sanchez

Image. It appears to be a problem in the United States right now. First, Tyler Clementi jumped from the George Washington bridge because his roommate caught him on a hidden camera having sex with another guy. And then the roommate posted the video of the tryst on the Internet.

So Clementi committed suicide the other day.

Rick Sanchez, a former reporter for CNN, went on a rant because he feels that he's being discriminated against because of his heritage.

After Rick's comments were broadcast, CNN fired him .

WHAT, I ask you, is the deal here, people??

So Clementi screwed a guy. Big deal. At least he didn't rape a goat!

Or maybe his partner screwed HIM. So what?

All Clementi had to do was say, "Yeah, that was worth every minute" and smile...and everything would have turned out differently.

Instead, he went into a panic and ended up screwing HIMSELF!

Sanchez, on the other hand, dug his own hole.

Rick Sanchez has had a problem with his heritage for a long time. I noticed that when I first started watching his segment on CNN.

He is his own worst enemy.

And he is obsessed and very insecure about his image.


Clementi was gay. Sanchez has ties to Cuba.

In the final analysis, neither is against the law or a ticket to the end of the world.

I listened to a song on my Internet radio station tonight called: "Grown Men Don't Cry" by Country singer Tim McGraw.

I thought about Tyler Clementi and Rick Sanchez.

And I've come to the conclusion that both of these men made mucho ado over nothing.

And since Rick Sanchez is the only one left alive, I'm going to direct the following comments to him:

Rick, you're never going to be perfect. You're never going to please everybody. And every time that you look in a mirror, you won't see everyone elses will only see your own.

And as long as you don't really hurt anyone else, that will be good enough.

Good enough to go on. And maybe good enough to give the best of yourself to someone else.

I'd direct the above comments to Tyler Clementi, too...but like I already mentioned, Tyler is dead.

Take the hint, Rick.
