Before He Cheats; Get A Restraining Order

By Mark Barkawitz, published on May 3, 2008

...presumes her boyfriend is cheating on her with “a” generic “bleached-blond tramp”—no one specifically—merely because his truck is parked outside a bar. That’s her only evidence against him? Not even the mention of a previous tryst. He could just as well be having a beer and shooting pool with his buddies. Right? Suspicion is not evidence. And that is very, very different than a righteous woman giving it to a man-who-had-it-coming-to-him, which is how Miss Underwood delivers it and how most of us had probably interpreted it. Take-out-a-restraining-order different. ... (more)

Can The Lakers Get By Without Bynum?

By Ed Attanasio, published on Apr 27, 2008

...Nuggets 102-84 on Saturday.

Game 4 is Monday night, and the Nuggets are going to have to get more out of their All-Star duo of Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson if they hope to take the series back to the Staples Center.

Anthony and Iverson were miserable from the floor, shooting a combined 10-for-38 and finishing with 16 and 15 points, respectively.

Bryant was quiet, too, at least in the first half, when he scored eight points on 3-for-8 shooting.

An air ball slowed Bryant's surge just when it looked like he was going to repeat his 19-point,... (more)

New York Acquittal An Indictment On Racism In America

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 26, 2008

By now you have probably heard that the three police officers on trial for the shooting death of Sean Bell in November 2006 were acquitted. A quick recap of the story: Bell was patronizing a sleazy strip club in Queens, NY on the night before he was to be married. He was at the club with two friends celebrating a bachelor party. In the early morning hours, Bell and his friends left the club, they were approached by undercover police officers and following a hail of gunfire, Bell was dead and his two friends were wounded.

It took barely more than 10 minutes for Queens... (more)

With Butter...or Without...

...Giant...and WINNING! For the artist, for the technical people, for everybody with talent and the DETERMINATION to be a part of the film and television industry, this is the best news you've heard in a long time. But it doesn't stop there.

The State of Georgia and Atlanta are always shooting off their mouths about bringing "New Industry" to Georgia. They expound loud & long about how we need to boost our economy! Well stop it and GET BEHIND one of the MOST LUCRATIVE industries on the planet! I'm talking to YOU politicians, business people, civic leaders..and to you... (more)

Stop Whining!

...

Paul: How long is this going to take?

Me: Not long. We are discussing men’s minds.

Charlie: See you are already ratting us out. Why do you do this?

Tim: You got like three minutes dude. (Tim always has a basketball in his hands and is always passing and shooting even if only in his mind, as he is now).

Me: Who would you guys like to date the most? A professional woman (for Tim’s sake I explain that this means like an attorney or a doctor), a stripper, a barely legal eighteen-year-old innocent or a professional pool player?

J. P. Morgan Announces Plan To Purchase Bear Stearns

...is a natural instinct for cats and at that moment your drapes happened to be something new with which to sharpen her claws.

Humans, though, are a creature unto themselves. They carry grudges and will often as not go out and get revenge. Just look at the stupid street thugs that keep shooting each other because someone “dissed on my sister!”

Investors are no different than street gangs – except on Crenshaw Boulevard they use guns and on Wall Street they use money. Thugs on Crenshaw (sounds like a store where gangs can buy their “colors” – if anyone uses that... (more)

If We Get Bored, We'll Move To California...

...outing. You’d think that dried palm tree leaves wouldn’t hurt if they smacked you in the face when you ran under them. But they do. A fishnet body stocking makes a suitable Halloween costume. Sometimes, a public establishment is safe. Then you hear about the gang-related shooting that took place the week prior.

If it’s 54 degrees, weather-appropriate attire in Los Angeles might include any of the following: flip-flops, a hoodie or an Eskimo-esque winter coat. Uggs: fashion’s great question mark. An orange face does not equal a tan face. El... (more)

Violence Shatters Valentine's Day

By Lady D, published on Feb 14, 2008

The bike lying in the street at the corner of Wilton Pl. and Clinton St. is not due to a car accident, it is due to a shooting of a young man.

At approximately 11:30am Valentines’ Day in Hollywood, police respond to a multiple shots fired call, and a dozen blocks are shut down by crime tape.

Captain Tom Brascia (Hollywood Division Patrol Commanding Officer) gave a statement at approximately 1:30pm.

“The investigation is a very preliminary stage, apparently there were two individuals on bikes and two on foot. One of the individuals that was on foot pulled... (more)

Bus Stop 101

By Lynn Downey, published on Feb 12, 2008

...

He dismissed us, we quietly gathered our things from the various classrooms where teachers sat in shock, and went our separate ways. Mulling over the concept of assassination as I walked alone down Idylberry Road I was convinced that there were assassins running all over the country shooting people at random. If they could kill a president what could they do to a little girl in a plaid cotton dress? I’ve always wondered if my fears would have been lessened had I been able to stand around with a group of friends, talk about what happened and wait for a cheerful yellow bus to... (more)

Marines! Save The USA From An Infected Administration!

By David Brager, published on Jan 20, 2008

...of family honor. This member of my family requested crucifixion so that he could do something so wise that he let the mindless hordes carry this message through time until civilization was intelligent enough to find the puzzle and change the course of history.

On the very day of the shooting in Seattle at a Jewish community center, such was the very day I finished decoding the hand tool and realized what it was. The very next day, I sent the hand tool to the Mullah of the West Richland Islamic Center. Islam has been waiting for this key for over 1200 years. Honor demands that I... (more)
