A Tyrant and a Gentleman
Fidel Castro has been reigning in Cuba with an iron fist for over 46 years. On Friday he sent Queen Elizabeth a heartfelt letter expressing his condolences for the lives lost in the brutal terrorist attacks last Thursday.

Pay ME Some Respect; Learn the Words, Brush Your Teeth
Many artists / celebrities graced our fair city of NY Friday to pay final respects to Luther Vandross. One of these artists, Freddy Jackson, known for his You are My Lady and Rock Me Tonight ballads, was at the service for Vandross on Friday and sang a few out-of-tune bars of Vandross’ Power Of Love. I watched the ceremony live via a local TV station, but it was Saturday night that truly sent me over the edge – well, more like made me step BACK in horror. I had the, uh… honor… yeah, honor… of meeting Freddy Jackson on Saturday night. Upon being introduced to the crooner, he spoke to comment on “H”ow great it was to meet me and was I “H”aving a good time. Each time he spoke an “H” word I cringed. His breath was atrocious. Sidebar: In defense of Mr. Jackson, his attitude was far sweeter than his breath.
