Afternoon Edition - 9/9/05

Yeah, I Killed Him
Joseph Druce quickly blurted, “I killed the child molester,” when correction officers apprehended him in John Geoghan’s cell. Geoghan was serving 8-10 years for molesting a 10-year old boy while a priest in Boston. Last week Druce’s attorney said he wanted his client’s signed confession banned from the trial and went on to say that Druce alleges corrections officers allowed him into Geoghan’s cell to kill him.

We Got This
President Bush said, "Our people have the spirit, the resources and the determination to overcome any challenge," this after the tally of damage caused by Katrina has been estimated at over $125 billion. Yesterday an Associated Press poll showed that 54% of people surveyed didn’t think New Orleans – 10 feet below sea level – should be rebuilt. Meanwhile, Congress has approved over $65 Billion in aid to the ravaged Gulf Coast area.

What’s the Story?
This segment is dedicated to finding out the truth… Former first lady Barbara Bush made disparaging remarks while touring the Gulf Coast area alleging that most of the displaced folks are better off now than they originally were. Is this for real? Would a former first lady make such a gaffe? E-mails circulating that former R&B crooner and cutie, Christopher Williams passed away in Atlanta at the age of 38. Does anyone have a confirmed report of this? In what I’m calling a “fart” or gas-out, a day where folks are encouraged to abstain from purchasing gas was announced. Is this true? What’s the day?

Long Story Short
Resident blogger J’Moo lost his aunt yesterday. The deceased is the twin of J’Moo’s mom…our condolences. Philippe finally bidding NYC farewell. The artist formerly known as Raven will be making Chi-town his home tomorrow. My plates arrived! Now simply “KM 4 ME” you still get the drift. Right…right? J-J is celebrating his (clear my throat) forty-something birthday this weekend. The 9-toe hooker will have a celebration thrown by friend and fellow bottom-feeder, Slugger this Sunday.

On Blast
Lady Long Legs asks:
What if a tragedy like this [Hurricane Katrina] happened to you? Would you be able to evacuate and start over or are you living paycheck to paycheck?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

I hope the mayor and governor are fired /thrown out of office for the bullshit job they did before the city was flooded. They should have sent buses to the people who had no mode of transportation and put them in emergency shelters BEFORE the storm hit. What assholes. And then the bitch had the NERVE to cry like a baby on television? WHat kind of leadership is that. Then the mayor ranted and raved like a lunatic knowing his INCOMPETENT ASS played a major role in the deaths of all of those poor folks. Terrible terrible terrible.
Now I know to get the hell out of any area that is about to get hit by a major storm. Me and my babies are heading for high ground.

Christopher Williams is not dead...here is the story:
fake e-mail, with the subject line Christopher Williams: 1967-2005 RIP, ended up being forwarded.

It was all a hoax, according to Cassandra Mills, who executive produced his 1989 album, CW says that she spoke to Christophers wife by phone and was told that the singer is fine, hes not sick, and the family is quite upset over the whole thing.

The bogus e-mail said that Williams died today in his Atlanta home after a brief illness. The cause of death is not known. It then gave a brief bio of his career before stating that he remained out of the public spotlight [of late] spending most of his time in and around his Atlanta home, and that funeral arrangements have not been made public.

Atlanta Journal & Constitution entertainment writer Sonia Murray, who said that even the newspapers obituary dept. was getting calls to verify the story. The obit dept. went so far as to call local mortuaries in search of an answer and came up with nothing, Murray said.

If there's a silver lining to this story it's the fact that Williams now knows conclusively that his fan base is still in tact from his heyday in the early 90s.

Thanks Priscilla for forwarding the letter Michael Moore sent to our President last Friday. Michael, as you may recall, is the mastermind behind Farenheit 9/11.

Dear Mr. Bush:

Any idea where all our helicopters are? It's Day 5 of Hurricane Katrina
and thousands remain stranded in New Orleans and need to be airlifted. Where on earth could you have misplaced all our military choppers? Do
you need help finding them? I once lost my car in a Sears parking lot.
Man, was that a drag.

Also, any idea where all our national guard soldiers are? We could really use them right now for the type of thing they signed up to do like helping with national disasters. How come they weren't there to begin with?

Last Thursday I was in south Florida and sat outside while the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed over my head. It was only a Category 1 then but it was pretty nasty. Eleven people died and, as of today, there were still homes without power. That night the weatherman said this storm was on its way to New Orleans. That was Thursday! Did anybody tell you? I know you didn't want to interrupt your vacation and I know how you don't like to get bad news. Plus, you had fundraisers to go to and mothers of dead soldiers to ignore and smear. You sure showed her!

I especially like how, the day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike?

And don't listen to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New
Orleans this summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them
that even if you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there
weren't going to be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I was moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand on some
rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done that.

There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out. Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland.

No, Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this!

You hang in there, Mr. Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army
helicopters and send them there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near Tikrit.

Yours,

Michael Moore

P.S. That annoying mother, Cindy Sheehan, is no longer at your ranch. She and dozens of other relatives of the Iraqi War dead are now driving across the country, stopping in many cities along the way. Maybe you can catch up with them before they get to DC on September 21st.

I would like to know where Mr. Moore's helicopters were also...the dude is loaded.

I agree, the National Guard should have been there on day one. this whole thing is a national disgrace and many balls should stop drop and roll across the floor.

A lot of the people on the rooves were white and hispanic as well. Poverty isn't just limited to black folks down there. Michael Moore should stop the bullshit, get off the soap box and get his big fat Big Mac clenching hands dirty by helping our fellow Americans instead of telling the president what he should have done.

They are all a bunch of fucking idiots in my opinion.

If I were president I can tell you right now that none one child would go to bed hungry in this country. I'd be damned to send a billion dollars a day to another country other than my own before feeding and taking care of HOME. End of story.

If ever there were a reason to get out of Iraq now is definitely the time. We got b'ness to handle right here.

One Nation, Under God.
