I was a terrorized kid," James, 41, said about beatings he received from his father on a recent television interview.

As a result of his lack of self-worth, he said, "I grew up with a huge amount of shame and fear and abandonment." He was talking, of course, about his recent infidelity to actress Sandra Bullock.

Geez, are there any men left in America? What is wrong with a man (or woman) standing up and saying, "I have no excuse for what I did. I won't discuss it any further."

"I made a bad choice" has grown as worn out as the phrase used by Nazi war criminals who stood at Nuremberg and said, "I was only obeying orders."

Come on, Outlaw Jesse, you did it because you wanted to and because you could. Sandra Bullock has been a much better person than you have. Grow up, Jesse and take responsibilty for your actions.

Thank you! Whining has become a national hobby and being a victim is now perceived as a sign of virtue. What say we all get a grip and take responsibility?
