Mike Pickens is a sorry excuse for a Father. Talk about “his own personal brand of child abuse”. I wonder if his kids will write a blog about him. Mike takes no responsibility for his actions. Alina Lodge, which he so admires, would never condone the blog. It’s alcoholic behavior at its finest. That Mike is blaming Boone for Ty’s death is reprehensible. Mike needs help desperately. He is a sick man.

Boone Pickens is scum - I put up with his abuse for too long - he sells himself as a nice guy but he's completely insane.
Kudo's to Mike for coming forward when the rest of the victims are waiting for the big payday, for staying silent.

Mike's blog stories are all about HIM taking responsibility - let's see here, Boone sued (alcoholic behavior) Mike, and from what I've observed numerous times, at several restaurants in Dallas, Boone Pickens is an alcoholic.
Your post was an assignment wasn't it ? How much are you being paid ?
All the stories will be told, when Boone Pickens finally dies.

Uhhh, no assignment and not being paid. Blaming others for your behavior is not taking respnsibility. And if the best you know is from observations at restaurants then you don't know much....

Sounds like ‘ole Mike isn’t working his recovery program…he’s got his R’s screwed up. Instead of Releasing Resentment he’s Rolling with Revenge. Lots of folk grow up in abusive homes but healthy people move on. He talks about love and spirituality but he isn’t walking his talk. No one made him drink & drug & steal…he did that all on his own. The Dude needs to get himself some help, leave others to God, and work on some serious amends.
