Afternoon Edition - 7/11/05

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. "Let me assure you that the people of Cuba, who have been the victims of terrorism for more than four decades, share your pain and reject this unjustifiable attack against the British people,” he said. Sidebar: Is Castro forgetting that the greatest abuse the Cuban people have suffered has been wrought by his hands?

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.

Gimme a C… A Bouncing C
I’m not going to elaborate, other than to say… it’s ALL good on the dating front. Girls, call me I need to put my weekend ON BLAST. The magic letters for today are E, P and T… and no it’s not a pregnancy test.

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Now I been through a lot of pain
I done seen a lot of things
From struggling and broken hearts to fancy cars (oh yeah)
And even though my money changed
I tried my best to stay the same
But you know with mo money
Mo problems came

[Chorus]
If I had to do it all again
I wouldn't take away the rain
Cuz I know it made me who I am
If I had to do it all again
I've learn so much from my mistakes that's how I know he is watching me

[Verse 2]
In NYC I caught a case
And the media tried to say
I had a habit
I couldn't manage and I am throwing my life away
But everything ain't what it seems just because its on TV
Cuz they speculate and exaggerate for a better story

[Chorus]
If I had to do it all again
I wouldn't take away the rain
Cuz I know it made me who I am
If I had to do it all again
I've learn so much from my mistakes that's how I know he is watching me

[Bridge]
Nobody knows what life may bring
It might make you happy it might make you sad
Sometimes yeah but I know there's a reason for everything (but I know)
That's why I keep believing
Whatever is meant to be its going to be

[Chorus (2x)]
If I had to do it all again
I wouldn't take away the rain
Cuz I know it made me who I am
If I had to do it all again
I've learn so much from my mistakes that's how I know he is watching me
