“There’s dumb, and then there’s dumber. The three teens who decided to break into a Houston, Texas mall to steal Air Jordan sneakers arguably fall under the latter category. According to police, three teens cut a hole — yes, a hole — through the roof of Greenspoint Mall to steal 16 pairs of the over-priced, $175 shoes from Foot Action, reports FoxNews.com.” Read the linked story.
File this under Interesting. Mattel has introduced Cross Dressing Barbie. The doll was designed by a cross dresser and she is blinged to the max. What makes this interesting is last year Mattel was approached to produce a bald Barbie to inspire cancer patients and they initially balked at the idea. Something to think about.

Creflo Dollar was arrested this morning for assaulting his daughter. He contends that she wanted to go to a party and he said no. He said she then became disrespectful and they got into a scuffle. She called the police on her father. this was a family dispute that has gone global. Some would say no parent has a right to raise their hand to a child. I would also say that a child should never disrespect the hand that feeds them. We live in a society that encourages a child to dial 911. Teenagers have the capacity to push your buttons and I am sure his daughter pushed the wrong one this morning.
This morning I listened to the tv talking heads gush over the news of Miley Cyrus’ engagement. Cyrus is 19 years old and her family is said to be thrilled with the announcement. She has been dating this guy for 3 years so that means since she was sixteen. Ann Curry of the Today Show asked the representative from People magazine if 19 was a little young to be getting engaged, and the rep replied well Cyrus has been in the business for so long it’s like she is 29, but she’s not. She is 19 and this thing started when she was 16 and in some states this activity could be characterized as criminal. Cyrus is entitled to her own life and her own decisions, but let’s hold off on the confetti for just a little while. Cyrus is a grown woman, but most of us do not want our daughters to grow up this quickly.
Hustler magazine has photoshopped a picture of SE Cupp doing something sexuaal in nature. This photo is an absolute fabrication and this kind of thing is simply not ok. It is fine to disagree with someone politically but this is wrong and should be criminal. There was a disclaimer under the photo. “No such picture of S.E. Cupp actually exists. This composite fantasy is altered from the original for our imagination, does not depict reality, and is not to be taken seriously for any purpose.” This is not just degrading to SE Cupp this is degrading to all women.
On first glance it is interesting that the author refers to the Mrs. Obama as simply Michelle. It seems appropriate because this first lady is as comfortable with kings and queens as she is with working out with school children. She has a self-assurance that comes from her early experiences growing up on the working class Southside of Chicago. She has always been focused and goal-driven, and she brought this take charge attitude into the White House. The approach that Samuels takes gives the reader glimpses into the First Lady’s past, but she also offers the reader inspirational instructions that the reader can adapt into their own lives. In one passage she delves into the character of Marian Robinson, the first lady’s mother, her lifelong dream was to be a secretary, but she did not fulfill this dream until after her daughter had entered high school. The takeaway is there is no expiration on dreams. It is never too late and you are never too old. If you are willing to work hard, commit and complete it. Some of the chapters: Find Your Seat and Take it, Using What You Have to Get What you Want and Making It Work. I liked this book because although Mrs. Obama is the central subject of the book Samuels has successfully created a handbook that talks to the reader about everyday issues that affect their world.

Designer Karl Lagerfeld called singer Adele fat and he has being taking heat for this observation. He followed up his remark by saying she did have a beautiful face and a wonderful voice, but he still called her fat. Let’s take Lagerfeld out of the equation and just ask the question is stating an obvious fact about a person’s appearance an insult? Tell me what you think.
