Anyway, back to the big egos and how they think they can help. Alec has decided that he can share his valuable insights into the world of divorce and talk about the best way families can handle divorce. Ummm. Yeah. The book is entitled A Promise To Ourselves. He doesn't explicitly slam Kim Basinger in it, because hey it is a book about advice on custody rights and co-parenting strategies.
Hopefully at some point he offers the tip that it might be wise from referring to your daughter as a thoughtless little pig. Alec compares being divorced to “being tied to the back of a pick-up truck and dragged down a gravel road”. I'm sure Kim Basinger felt like her marriage was like that every day.
I also on a personal level find the analogy that Alec chose to be a bit disturbing because when I conjure up that image, I don't see Alec being dragged, I see that James Byrd Jr. case in my mind. I know what Alec was trying to say, just wish he would have spent an extra two minutes and thought of something different.
