When It’s Your Time
When it’s time for you to clock out there’s really no amount of money or resources that will save you. Such is the case for up to twenty folks who boarded a bus evacuating Dallas in preparation for the arrival of hurricane Rita. Authorities say the bus was engulfed in flames killing at least twenty of the 45 occupants and injuring 12 others.

Shay Clark is a 14-year old girl who until recently attended Ontario Christian School in California. On Thursday she was expelled for having lesbian parents. Leonard Stob, the school’s superintendent wrote Shay directly saying, “Your family does not meet the policies of admission,” and went on to say that the school policy clearly states that at least one parent may not engage in practices that are immoral or inconsistent with a positive Christian lifestyle. Cohabitating outside of marriage and homosexual parenting were precisely what Stob feels the policy describes. Tina Clark, Shay’s biological mother, says she will not fight the ruling. Tina Clark and her partner of 22 years, have two other children ages 9 and 19.

And Another Thing, Y’all Are Triflin’
Alright, that’s not exactly what 78-year old crooner, Harry Belafonte said, but it pretty much sums it up. Wednesday night attending the Congressional Black Caucus at the Washington Convention Center in DC, Belafonte sat wedged between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama. When given an opportunity to speak, Belafonte got up and said, “I am looking at the ravages of the Democratic Party and I am trying to decide: Is there anything worth salvaging?" Belafonte was not interrupted and was only given attentive looks and nods from “congressfolk” Obama and Clinton. Belafonte was referring primarily to the response to the Katrina devastation.
Is there any truth to the saying, “Better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all.” or is this a cop-out statement made by someone not likely to find a new love interest?
