Train Wreck

By Julie Rahm
Last week, I received a lot of positive feedback on my Lindsey Lohan mention. So back by popular demand, I have chosen to continue the Lindsey theme and expound on last week’s thoughts.
Starting at the beginning, Lindsay Dee Lohan was born on July 2, 1986 in New York City. She grew up on Long Island. She is the eldest child of Donata Melina Nicolette Sullivan and Michael Douglas Lohan. Lindsay has three younger siblings, all of whom have been models or actors. Both of Lohan's parents are of Irish and Italian descent. She was raised as a Catholic. Lohan attended Cold Spring Harbor High School, where she did well in science and mathematics. In eleventh grade she started homeschooling.
Lohan's parents have a turbulent history. They married in 1985, separated when she was three, and later reunited. They separated again in 2005 and finalized their divorce in 2007. Her father is a former Wall Street trader who has been in trouble with the law on several occasions. Her mother is a former singer and dancer.
Lohan began her career as a child model with Ford Models at the age of three! She modeled for Calvin Klein Kids and Abercrombie Kids. She appeared in over 60 television commercials for brands like Pizza Hut and Wendy's, as well as a Jell-O spot with Bill Cosby. At the age of 10, Lohan was playing Alexandra "Alli" Fowler in the television soap opera Another World. Lohan remained in the role for a year, before leaving to star in Disney's 1998 family comedy, The Parent Trap, a remake of the 1961 movie. The film won Lohan a Young Artist Award for best performance in a feature film as well as a three-film contract with Disney. Lohan’s successes and failures are well chronicled. 
 Most recently, the troubled starlet entered a 90-day rehab stint last May. After her sixth arrest, Lohan avoided jail time by agreeing to spend three months in rehab. She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to the police in March 2013. After rehab, Lohan will perform 30 days of community labor and undergo 18 months of psychological therapy. This all stems from an incident in the summer of 2012 when Lohan crashed her car. Lohan’s life has become a train wreck. And, it is a train that keeps on wrecking.
Nevertheless, the world’s worst train wreck is no comparison to Lohan. The worst train wreck is the 2004 Sri Lanka tsunami-rail disaster. The wreck occurred when an overcrowded passenger train was destroyed on a coastal railway in Sri Lanka by the tsunami that followed the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake. More than 1,700 people died resulting in the greatest loss of life in railroad history. How’s that for a “train of thought”?
