To the Journal editor:
In reference to the interviews in the Oct. 13 Mining Journal regarding Miley Cyrus, and whether or not we felt she is a good influence on the teenagers of today, I would like to clarify my position.
I feel that the performance put on by Miley Cyrus at the awards show was not only inappropriate, but trashy and disgusting as well.
I can think of other descriptive terms that are equally descriptive, but will withhold them for now.
I do not feel she is a good role model for the younger generation of today, and will end with this question to all parents: If you have (or had) a 12 or 13 year old daughter, would you find it acceptable for her to emulate the performance that Miley put on at the awards show?
I think not.
