For some of their films, Disney would film real actors so that the animators could watch them for reference.
So Florida Representative Trey Radel got arrested for possessing cocaine, and after reading some of his statements, I began to notice similarities between his words and that of Rob Ford, Anthony Weiner, and Bob Filner. I’m not talking about the apology side of it all or the influence of other substances or conditions, I’m talking about the side where they say “well, there is a positive side!”
Here’s something Radel said, “However, this unfortunate event does have a positive side: It offers me an opportunity to seek treatment and counseling.” That’s great. No really, that’s just great. We should all start possessing/abusing substances, groping co-workers, and sending undesired pictures of our genitalia, because then - if we’re lucky enough to get caught - we can get treatment and counseling.
(Actually, come to think of it, Rob Ford isn’t seeking treatment. He’s too good for it.)
