Mother instills "modern values" in 6 year old

Why tell the truth when a lie will do?

The girl won a makeover that included a blonde Hannah Montana wig, as well as the grand prize: airfare for four to Albany, N.Y., and four tickets to the sold-out Hannah Montana concert on Jan. 9.

The opening line in the essay was: "My daddy died this year in Iraq."

The girl's mother had told Club Libby Lu officials that the girl's father died April 17 in a roadside bombing in Iraq, company spokeswoman Robyn Caulfield said. But the mother, Priscilla Ceballos, admitted later Friday that the essay and the military information she provided about her daughter's father were untrue.

"We did the essay and that's what we did to win. We did whatever we could do to win," Ceballos said in an interview Friday with KDFW-TV of Dallas. "But when (Caulfield) asked me if this essay is true, I said 'No, this essay is not true.'"

The kid plainly has a very promising career ahead of her as a liberal democrat politician. Anyone who has the instincts to lie and cheat like this at 6 years old will be world class by the time they leave high school. Might wind up like that movie a few years ago where a beauty pageant contestant is murdering her competition in the quest for the crown.

Back when I was a boy scout I competed in the usual Pinewoods Derby type stuff. My dad's business had all the industrial machinery to make a truly world class car, but we didn't. We could have hard chrome plated the nails that were the axles - but we didn't. We could have inserted micro ball bearings on those chromed axles- but we didn't. The only thing my dad did to help was tell me that it would go faster if *I* took a jewelers file and worked over the heads of the nails to remove the forming crimp relics under the heads and polished them a bit with some 400 grit sandpaper. Of course I lost because other's were having their fathers build their cars for them.

I was permanently damaged by these sort of archaic values my parents put into my head. Its taken me several decades to come to the realization that once you give up on integrity all things become possible.
