I hope someone does something about the StarLine tours going thru the neighborhood. That is an incredible violation of privacy. And I am willing to bet they heard it thru a police scanner. To much of a "coincidence" that they were just there. I honestly hope someone sees this and does something. My prayers to the Stallone family.

I'm going to say this in all seriousness, that town is not a place for children. Period. It kills them, it's quite obvious to anyone outside mo wood. As far as being a child of a legendary star, that's gotta suck in its ways too. Every person you meet is suspect, you don't know what people want from you, you're probably used all the time by the people you think you can trust, your best friend who was a girl has a wanger attached and becomes a guy senior year, I mean who could be normal in that world? Hardly anyone it's obvious. I don't know what kind of a dad the man is, probably a great one, but no matter what people in America at that level hopefully have proven in these dire times that money shouldn't ever become everything because those people are sure a lot unhappier than I am and you are most of the time. We need to get back to basics, unload the government, reload with some new folks across the board and cut down because Americas got some tough times ahead cleaning up this mess O's leaving behind before he's even left. The only thing he can do to get elected is divide from within and conquer. Don't fall for the race bait. RIP Son. too young and life couldn't have been that bad. SO sad.

Italian Fathers and their sons, I wouldn't be surprised if Stallone Would become a recluse after this like Dean Martin did after his oldest and only son died....
