Miriam Carey crashes White House fence and gets gunned down, Omar Gonzalez jumps fence and goes into the White House and lives to tell it

How could a man scale the White House fence and go into the residence with a knife in his pocket? What was the Secret Service doing? Where were the dogs? Miriam Carey was gunned down for crashing into the fence and Omar Gonzalez managed to enter the residence? What would have happened if six people had jumped the fence and the Obamas were home? Why was the door unlocked? So many questions and not enough answers.

Is a piece of a man better than nothing?

For the past three weeks Iyanla Vanzant has dealt with a man who has 34 children by 17 mothers. In the first episode Vanzant gave each of the mothers that participated a piece of a shirt symbolizing that they each only had a piece of him, and how it was impossible to have a healthy family if you are working with a piece of a man. The women on the show simply wanted to be loved and he played into their need to be loved. As they shared their stories you heard common threads throughout and you could not help but feel sorry for them, but today I thought about how ironic this situation was. These women are looked at as victims but every week we celebrate a ficitonal character who has made herself comfortable eating the scraps off the presidential table. Scandal is the show and Olivia Pope is the heroine. Sure she is decked in designer clothing and she speaks in a well-bread staccato tone, but she is a woman satified with a piece of a man. Perhaps we need some new heroines.

Iyanla Fix My Life-34 children by 17 women…don’t blame his parents

I am watching Iyanla Fix My Life season opener. Jay is the father of 34 children by 17 women. Listening to his parents it is obvious they were not ideal parents, but they are not the reason that this 44 year old man has 34 children by 17 women. He did it. He is responsible for his actions not his parents. This is the first of three parts. Vanzant is dealing with his pain but what about the children. They will be a part of this series, but what happens when she packs up her cameras? Will anybody be fixed or is that the point? Is this simply a sensational story exploited for ratings? Share your thoughts.

Joan Rivers is dead…she was truly funny, but she took no prisoners

It is interesting watching the coverage of the death of Joan Rivers. Rivers was funny but her humor was often brutal. She made jokes about Whitney Houston after her death and she made countless tasteless jokes about celebrities. Her cohosts on Fashion Police would often squirm in their seats at the statements that came out of Rivers mouth. Rivers was a pioneer, a fighter, a comedienne, a true force of nature, but she made alot of people cry from laughter and sometimes she simply made some people cry.
