3 sides to every story

While I was sitting here working on a supersecret knitting project, I was reading the article on Debbie Oatman in today’s Times Useless. The scathing nature of the article is kind of odd…
When the Extreme Home Makeover team showed up in Colonie (a serious 3 miles from my house…), they were all over it. They were writing whole glowing articles and showing pictures of the “dream house” that she and her children would be recieving. Did they need a new house? TOTALLY.

BUT, here’s the deal. The minute this all went down, the detractors came out of the woodwork. I got an earfull out of my neighbor, who teaches one of the kids. She let me know that NOT ONE teacher was happy about the makeover, because of hte impact on the kids, and that this family was not all it was cracked up to be.

Everyone knows that the truth lies somewhere in the murky mire of this whole thing. Is Debbie Oatman a saint? Most likely not. What one of us is truly a saint? Is she a complete abomination? Again, which one of us has no redeeming qualities whatsoever?

My main issue is that the paper that sanctified and lauded her in March is now villifing her in May, on the day that the show is being broadcast.

Why can’t people realize that there are truly 3 sides to this whole tale. Hers, her detractors and the truth.
