Ah, Hot Topics! You know you wanna know!
If you’re in DC and you like a good piece of relevant satire, check out Nia Orms’ “Please Take A Number.” Faithful Snob reader Dot has all the info. (Full disclosure: Faithful reader Dot is totally the one planning my upcoming East coast trip to Washington, D.C. and is the producer of a TV show we’re both trying to develop. I wish I could go to Nia’s show, which tackles — quite humorously — the very relevant stories of many different women standing in a welfare line, but I’m about 2,000 miles too far away. Please go and have a good time for me.)
My favorite “diva” Kanye West got hit with some misdemeanors for making that pap’s camera go all “smashy-smashy.”
There’s love a brewin’ at CNN and it’s not just me and my sweet, sweet Prince of West Memphis.
If you’re in east Texas you might want to avoid the long, sticky arm of the law in Tenaha. They seem to be more interested in breaking the law by jacking folks for their cash, jewels and cars than actually fighting crime. They’re doubly interested in you if you happen to be black (or with a black person). And they will threaten to take your kids if you don’t pay up as one couple learned. One eagle-eyed reader pointed out that the sticky cops in question may be black themselves, which, of course, doesn’t make the story any better! Crooked cops of any color are bad and harm the reputation of good cops who are just trying to do their job! Thanks a lot, jerks! Hope the ACLU sues the shit out of you!
