A rather pleasant surprise from a celebrity’s child


Cher is undoubtedly a talented performer.  She’s also capable of being extremely crude, vulgar, and mean.  Over the years, she’s criticized conservatives using sexual and scatological insults that do nothing to advance political discourse; they just debase conversation.  That’s why it came as a surprise — a very pleasant one — to read that her son by Gregg Allman, Elijah Blue Allman, feels that his mom stepped over the line when she used the “c” word to describe Sarah Palin.


That’s quite classy. Without knowing anything more about the young man, he just went up in my estimation.

    I think it was an urban legend, but Cher is ditzy enough to make it ring true. The story goes that Cher, a high school dropout who met Sonny Bono when she was 15, believed that the faces on Mt. Rushmore were a phenomenon that had been created by natural processes.
    Apparently, mentally she is still 15. But good to know her kid has some shreds of decency despite his upbringing.
