During the 15 minute court proceeding in front of a federal judge in a Virginia courthouse suspended Atlanta Falcons’ star quarterback Michael Vick entered a plea of guilty to federal conspiracy charges.

No decision has yet been issued by National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell in the matter concerning the federal indictment of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.
Vick and 3 other defendants have been charged with conspiring to engage in competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines.
Reports indicate Commissioner Goodell is waiting for a reportto be asubmitted by hired observers, a group led by former deputy U.S. attorney general Eric Holder.
Roger Goodell has the authority, based on his newly implemented personal conduct policy; a regulation which supercedes the former violent crime policy, to impose upon Vick a suspension which could be effective coincidental to any prison sentence prescribed by the federal court in Virginia or following Vick’s release from law enforcement custody.
Vick is expected to appear before U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson to make a formal guilty plea on Monday August 27, 2007.
After cancelling their planned extravagant wedding ceremony to be held in the home of record executive L.A. Reid in the Hamptons, popular singer Usher, and his fiance Tameka Foster, were married in a civil ceremony in his attorney’s office in Atlanta on August 3, 2007.
Reports vary as to whether or not his mother was at the ceremony. Some entertainment news outlets indicate she was not present; other reports say she was.
We have been unable to verifiy whether or not his mother was in attendance. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Stella Foster reports Jonetta Patton, mother of the sensational performer, was a witness to the nuptials.
At least one source, EURweb.com – reports Patton went to a spa instead of her son’ s wedding.
Just one week before the marriage ceremony took place in private the couplke had cancelled the planned formal public event amid outrageous and persistent rumors of discord between Foster, the fiance, now wife, Mrs. Usher Raymond, and Patton the mother of the young star of the Broadway stage, video and music recordings.
No matter we wish them all the best in their new life together…Usher and Tameka that is!
Many people are outraged by the government’s charges against Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick who recently has been indicted for his alleged participation in an illegal dog fighting ring and abuse of the animals. If only as many people, spineless federal legislative Democrat representatives included, were as outraged by the behavior of the leader of our nation and the free world, George Walker Bush. (more…)
A rash of Elvis sightings later this month may be the result of the arrival in stores of the WowWee Alive Elvis. This product is an animatronic bust of Elvis with infrared eyes and lips that are synchronized to music.
WowWee Alive Elvis can look you square in the eye. This thing can tilt its head and sing as only Elvis can “Love Me Tender” heard through the speakers located in its shoulders.
Created by George York, who is an inventor, the animated reproduction of Elvis Presley uses forensic reconstruction techniques and guidance from Graceland to make up this robotic version of Elvis in his prime. There are nine motors for head movements and facial gestures, plus four levers dedicated to the upper lip for that afmous sneer. All of these devices are located under the rubbery skin. The remote is microphone-shaped; it lets you adjust the volume, select the songs or switch between talking and singing modes.
Alive Elvis, available at Sharper Image stores and at Graceland for about $300. This super doll comes with a plug-in cartridge with eight songs and 37 phrases recorded by an Elvis impersonator. Three audio jacks, for playing music through the speakers, or to patch in a microphone just in case you want to karaoke and brush up your own Elvis impersonation in preparation for the office Halloween or Christmas party.
We wish to extend our sincere congratulations to Barry Lamar Bonds. You did it! We knew you could do it, too.
As soon as we’d heard the predictions from the baseball experts as to if and when you’d do it we were confident you could and you would do it. (more…)
