Zoe 101 preggers

What kind of role models are left anymore -- after Mel Gibson went on his anti-Semitic tirade, the self-proclaimed moral arbitor Bill O'Reilly slandered the American soldiers massacred at Malmedy, and now Jamie Lynn Spears (sister of Britney) gets knocked up at the age of ... sixteen?

Something is horribly wrong when even the siblings of ex-role models live up to the lowered expectations of their blood rather than try to make a mark for themselves and at least attempt to be different.

At what point do we, the consumers of entertainment, say enough is enough? God forbid we go back to the days when we said that a teenage girl had "gone to an aunt's." But the lack of parenting across class lines is absolutely appalling. At least Zoe 101 can afford to raise her kid. Most teenage moms can't.
