- "Panhandlers" They had a rough day yesterday, here and on the Left Coast. If you live in Chicago, by now you've heard about the guy cops had to put some rounds in downtown yesterday. Never a good idea to hold a knife to an old man's throat, especially in broad daylight in front of ABC7 Studios. Especially over some pocket change. Another man, whose description screams "bum", was tazed to death yesterday in LA after rushing a cop. The vagabond community must be reeling right now. In
halfall seriousness though, the last line of the LA story is a little fishy. A crack pipe was found at the scene too? Dave, your thoughts?
- "Crucial Conflict"
It came up while the Zune was on shuffle en route to work. Woulda been even better if it wasn't 65 degrees outside.
- "Detroit" Although I'll forever hate the city for its sports, and forever clown it b/c it looks like Baghdad before Saddam came into power, I can't deny just how hood the D is. While a mother and her son were roaming the neighborhood looking for their stolen van - trust me it gets even better - they actually found it. Only thing is, there was A DEAD BODY IN IT.
- "Milton Bradley" My man, listen, please. If you're going to play the race card in Chicago, follow one, if not all, of these rules: wait till the offseason, have proof or........just don't. You didn't do any of those, and now, despite being the best player on the team for the past month, even kiddie fans are calling you a pussy.
- "Advertising" Interesting read on BBC News about the flak Microsoft has caught after what some deem racist advertising.
