I realize that I am tardy to the party, but I thought this was too good to pass up, even if it's late...

Earlier this week, I taped on a mustache and donned a hat to read my speech class an interesting perspective written by a dad. It was about the Miley Cyrus VMA performance, but the focus was not on her. Of course, I deleted some of the terms that the author used and/or changed them to more appropriate words, but the message was still crystal clear. We were studying the presentation of personal opinions and this blog post by Matt Walsh hit the nail on the head delivering his.

(Editor’s note: There have been no reports that Cyrus was actually intoxicated during her performance.)

    Great post, Cyndi. Let''s hope a few young men read it. Heck, let's hope us old guys read it and learn.
