Rollin Knifley: Some people are not living up to their raising

Rollin Knifley writes:
Your point of "its nobody's business but their own" became moot the second the Oil Men of Adair County agreed to get on national television and invite the rest of us into their business. Along with fame and fortune will come ridicule and criticism. They should be equally prepared for both.

I have no issues with they way the cast dress, in what level of comfort they choose to live their lives, how they spend their money, or how much money they have. I personally don\'t take issue with their use of profanity. After 29 years in the military, I have become used to hearing it, and quite proficient in its use. What I do take issue with, is the re-enforcement of the negative stereo-types of folks from Kentucky. If you were able to find entertainment value in the show, then we just have a difference in opinion.

Just like you feel like some people are getting above their raising, and I see it as some people are not living up to their raising. --Rollin Knifley
