Sorry Nipper, but the same as you take your right to bash on Heather day in day out, I take the right to say what I think about it...well....I don't even go that far...

I even deleted my post you quoted... but then...you beat me to it..

Getting back to the topic at hand here....

Many might say it is Devil's Radio, perhaps? Still, everyone will have to wait and see. As for myself, I will hope for everybody's best interest, here on this board and in the McCartney family.

I am confused, how exactly are you defining "Devil's Radio." I don't understand the phrase at all and cannot understand when people here use it to cover everything that is "uncomfortable" to talk about. It seems to be a catch-all for "this is a disturbing topic, so let's gloss over it."

Paul and Heather are getting a divorce. There is a child involved. There is likely to be a custody issue, whether the tabloids report it or not, simply because there usually IS one when a child is involved in ANY divorce. That's not "Devil's Radio," that's fact.

I am not bashing her, you are practically canonizing her! If you can't stand to hear that some of us can't stand her, well, too bad.

I'm not afraid to hear what you think, go ahead and say it.

Devil's Radio is a song by George Harrison... as in...the one who did The Beatles with Paul, John and Ringo...and it about Gossip....just so you know...

Yes, and people around here seem to use it to cover anything that is remotely "controversial" to discuss. :rolleyes:

When I said "Devil's Radio," I was saying it in jest. I did not mean to gloss over a disturbing topic. I do not think this is really a disturbing topic.

It is current; it is a matter of interest to many fans; and it is a fact is right that there is a divorce with a young child involved. I apologize if my feeble attempt at levity has offended anyone; it was not meant to. I was just hoping to lighten things up a tad, that is all.

No, BB, you didn't offend, I was just wondering why you used that particular phrase. I've seen it bandied about by other people who DO use it to gloss over things they'd rather not think about, that's all.

Thank you for clarifying.

Yes, I'd say you probably have.

I've stated strong opinions about how I don't like the woman, but I believe I have been very mindful of how I have stated it. Tough if it's not "nice" and "pretty" and "sweet." I won't lie and say I adore her, sorry. I am only sorry Paul ever got involved with her -- and I am sure he is too.

beatlebangs1964 Jun 07, 2006 01:25 PM

And you shouldn't have to. I've bitched and moaned from time to time about echoing the prevaling sentiment to appease others and I respect someone who will stand behind their own opinion. I've said for the last few years that being a vocal vertebrate (one with their own voice and a backbone) is an asset, a plus.

And I agree - it is not a requirement to like Heather or anybody else. As Susan stated above, it has to do with how that is expressed. I feel that she has a) expressed her position well and b) been very mindful of how she's done so.

I will ask that everybody be courteous; that is not directed toward any individual, but a general request so that everybody has a turn at bat and feels free to express their opinions without fear of reprisal. :smile1:

And that is why a gentle reminder is being given.

We are not interested in drawing dividing lines in the sand...all I am asking is that everybody keep it to the topic; feel free to voice their honest opinions about Paul & Heather and Bea's situation. As long as we keep our own personal feelings out, then the kitchen will be cool without the help of a maximum powered AC.

Just for the record, Mods do not ban anybody...that is not our decision to make.

And the title is "Heather Getting Full Custody." How about we give custody of this topic to what its title suggests? :smile1:
