Cover story: 'Golden Touch'

Online responses to the cover story "Golden touch: Will Dallas Austin fall from grace?" by Mara Shalhoup, published July 13, 2006.

Oh please: ...enough of this crap. He was caught with narcotics in a country that hates them more than the U.S., but he's a big hero?! He got a senator to plead for his release, so everything is hunky-dorey? Wrong. If an average joe like myself wound up in the exact same situation, I'd have been locked up for a good long while - in a country that doesn't coddle their inmates like the U.S. does, mind you. Of course, he's rich and popular and all that jazz, so naturally we should just forgive him. Who's going to forgive us for being hypocrites?

I'm glad he's back home: It was a mistake, and alot more people need to realize that sometimes we all make mistakes. We all agree including Mr. Austin himself that he was wrong. But that does not detract from what he did in the past for Atlanta. Why wasn't there as much negative feedback when a certain supermodel gets caught on tape doing lines of coke with her druggie boyfriend? I think we all know why.

Who cares?: His music sucks anyway.

This Article was a joke: Creative Loafing come on! Are you on the payroll with this article? I have seen you guys tear a new one to politicians, business leaders for far less. This guy had cocaine. you know...a drug. This article was a kiss up and pathetic. I might as well read this in the AJC.

Are you guys kidding?: This seems like a joke. Well, it is ok for Dallas Austin to do drugs so bring them on. I am shocked to say the AJC has been harder on this Drug User!
