Last night, some of the sharpest minds in the sports world converged at historic Morehouse College in Atlanta for a forum on the State of the Black Athlete. There was Spike Lee, Rutgers basketball coach Vivian Stringer, New York Times scribe William Rhoden, NBA stars Etan Thomas and Alonzo Mourning, and the great Jim Brown.


“A committee of World Bank directors has formally notified Paul D. Wolfowitz that they found him to be guilty of a conflict of interest.” Everything George Bush and his gang of unethical corrupt Repuglican politicians touch turns into major disaster! From Iraq to the World Bank, right on to the current Department of Justice and even the price of gas, it is destruction and greed to the nth degree! Time for a change. Impeach the thieves, impeach them all, and take back our country!

After 9/11, that was a time to put flags up on freeways. This is the time to put up signs that say: "Impeach this president who lies."


Publicity experts are predicting that Paris Hilton's pending 45-day jail sentence will actually increase her popularity. With a new all-time low approval rating of 28%, who could learn from Hilton more than her intellectual equal, George Bush?
