Randy Mc Michael Happy Birthday: When You Gonna Grow Up?

Randy Mc Michael, NFL professional football player, now with the St. Louis Cardinals, formerly of the Miami Dolphins with 6 years experience in the league plays TE. Today, June 28, 2007 is your birthday, and along with best wishes for many more happy birthday celebrations we wish to give you a wake up call!

You were born in 1979. That means today is your 28th birthday. Congratulations! You made it this far. How blessed you are to live this long; especially behaving the way you do.

We're not just talking about the two publicized incidents of domestic violence against your wife Cawanna; nor do we refer to the incident wherein you were charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant woman, a second-degree felony that is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

If those offenses weren't enough for you to have learned your professional football career could come to an abrupt end because of your deviant behavior, you had the temerity during last year's Randy Mc Michael Foundation sponsored football camp in Fort Valley, Georgia, to act up with some of your buddies to tear up a luxury limobus used to transport you and your guests to night clubs in downtown Macon, Georgia.

Randy, Randy, Randy, you've placed yourself in the position of being a role model. We do not know whose bright idea it was to bestow this honor on you, clearly by last summer you had not changed your destructive ways. You destroyed someone's property. You caused a company, a small business that could ill afford the loss of income to lose business; you cost the company money after providing you and your friends with luxury chauffeur driven transportation. You caused the loss of income for a small business in the community you purport to help.

Sure you paid for the property you destroyed. But who would want your business after hearing about how you and your friends behaved? Who could afford to take on your business, regardless of how great an athlete you are? No sensible business owner would want to take the risk. Yes, we know rock stars tear up hotel rooms and otherwise act out. And they are not a role model either as you purport to be. You, Randy are not a rock star. Your behavior is unacceptable whether rock star, football star or ditch-digger.

You have a foundation whose stated purpose is:
"...promote programs that enhance the quality of life for young people, and assist in the recreational and educational development of youth in South Florida and Middle Georgia communities." We do not support your hypocrisy. Is this how you "...assist in the recreational and educational development of youth" anywhere in this country?

If you have no integrity, humanity, no home training, no common sense and you do not know how to conduct yourself off the field as well as on the field, frankly, we will not be cheering for you when you play. We will not be supporting your foundation.

This is the wake-up call part of this piece, the youth of any nation is its most valuable resource. Why must you add to the confusion of our children by saying one thing and doing another? You have children of your own. You must know they emulate their parents' behavior...for good or for bad.

But the 64 million dollar question for you, Randy, on this, your 28th birthday is:

When you gonna grow-up?
When you gonna man-up,and behave like a grown-A man?!

Happy birthday, blood.

Paris Hilton: The Saga Continues The Heiress Returns to Parents' Home

Paris Hilton, the Hilton Hotel heiress, the symbol of wealthy excess, and now known as a former convict, has been released from jail after serving 23 days of imprisonment. Hilton, who joins the ranks of contemporary celebrity ex-cons such as her peers, L'il Kim, and a host of rappers, as well as the poster woman for WASPs, Martha Stewart was escorted by her parents, Kathy and Rick Hilton, to a posh Hilton family home in the exclusive enclave of Bel-Air in the Hollywood Hills.

Paris Hilton served three weeks in jail for violating probation in a drunk-driving case.This justice system odyssey began on September 7, 2006, when she failed a sobriety test after police saw her weaving down a street in her car on what she said was a late-night run to a hamburger stand.

She pleaded no contest to reckless driving and was sentenced to 36 months' probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines.

In the months that followed, she was stopped twice by officers who discovered her driving with a suspended license. The second stop landed her in Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer's courtroom, where he sentenced her to 45-days in jail. After 3 days she was released to home confinement by Sheriff Lee Baca for a baffling medical condition he later described as psychological. The following day Judge Sauer called Hilton back into court, ordered she be returned to jail. The judge said he had not sanctioned her release.

Hilton was mostly confined to a solitary cell in the special needs unit away from the other 2,200 inmates. At least one person has filed a claim against the county alleging she "had serious medical issues" but was not treated as well as Hilton.
An exhaustive study of similar cases conducted by The Los Angeles Times indicated Hilton was being treated unusually severely, receiving a much longer jail sentence than normal.

Today she was released after three weeks for reasons including good behavior.

According to the city attorney's office Hilton will complete her probation in March 2009 as long as she keeps her driver's license current and doesn't break any laws. She can reduce that time by 12 months if she does community service that could include a public-service announcement.

The 26-year-old celebutante, that means she's a debutante who is also a celebrity, has put her incarceration in the Los Angeles County jail, known as the Century Regional Detention Facility, behind her to return to what she is best knwon for...no not a sex video. Hilton will give her first post jail interview to Larry King on CNN on Wednesday evening, Juune 27, 2007. check your local listings for time and channel.

"She fulfilled her debt. She was obviously in good spirits. She thanked people as she left," - sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Atlanta Man With TB Alludes U.S. Government Security

No doubt everyone has heard the story in recent weeks of the Atlanta attorney who was diagnosed with TB. It was not until after he was outside of the country traveling in Europe that he received word his ciondition was dangerous to the public.
There have been several versions of what took place during his doctor visit before he left the country. There are sevral versions of what communications between he, the medical professionals and the government agencies responsible for "bringing him back" after he was located overseas.

One thing is very clear all of the security could not keep him from re-entering the country. This story has us podering the following questions:

If the government can not stop one individual with a highly communicable infectious disease from leaving the country or entering without note, how is it possible to keep thousands of illegal immigrants, drug smugglers and terror suspects out of the country?How is it possible to control all these alleged threats to our society if one, solitary individual can not be limited in his travels around the world...acorss the country??
We also question all those times the government was susccessful (?) in halting the movement of simliar threats to the well being of our country? Was it just luck? Stellar police work? Thorough investigation by the CIA, FBI and the NSA or Homeland Security? Was it solid, valid information from reliable intelligence sources? Just another among many things to make you say "Hmmmmmm."
