Eh, Morrissey is being consistent with his views, which is fine. He's always been pretty full of himself, so he comes off like a drama queen whenever he announces anything. I've got three words for him: "Lighten up, Francis."

I don't hunt, but I don't condemn those who do. The thought of hunting bores me.

I don't think the Robertson gang qualifies as "serial killers," in that there are strict state and federal limits on the number of ducks and deer one person kills. They are hunters and businessmen. Some people in the world enjoy hunting, for whatever reasons.

The teevee show is pretty fun, corny and harmless, so the locals here are proud. Rednecks love redneck shit. It's one of the few reality shows where people aren't mean and nasty to each other, which is nice. It's fully scripted and hoakey family entertainment; they get a little "Jesus-y" here and there, but they don't preach at you. Otherwise it's just the boys grab-assing full-time with their wise-cracking women keeping the boys in their places, when needeed. Pretty harmless.

They're really locals, so something one day will likely pop up of one of them saying something dumbshit or racist or insensitive. They seem pretty careful of their images, though. They're raking in a shitload of money.

Do you boycott CBS because they run car comercials and automobile exhaust pollutes the air and increases global warming? Are the poor slobs behind the counters at McDonalds and Wendys abetting their serial cow-killer masters? Are the Duck Dynasty guys slaughtering more animals than Col. Sanders?
