Post Script

After some mixed feedback on my Joe Francis post, a little clarification.

First, I think kids/young adults should enjoy that time of their lives to have fun, get drunk with their friends, skinny dip, hook up together, etc., before moving onto adult responsibilities. You only live once and God gave us a capacity for joy for a reason. So use it.

But there are always creepy individuals that we need to watch out for. They'll turn carefree fun into something dirty or humiliating. Joe Francis and his ilk remind me of a verse from an old Tom Petty/Mike Campbell song that Petty sang with Stevie Nicks.

There's people running 'round loose in the world
Ain't got nothing better to do
Than make a meal of some bright eyed kid
You need someone looking after you

That "someone" should be us grownups. I'm just sayin'.

Preach on! I agree with you. And thank you for referencing Stevie Nicks in this post.
