(Yeah... I like Quincy's daughter - maybe it's the freckles.)
"Quiet skinny girl beats down pushy big girl? " - hilarious.
"How much?", I asked.
"Five Bucks", he said.
A Windshield Wiper Hustle?
Damn, he's got some nerve.
(But it was clever.)
The Bible warns it's followers to abstain from dead bodies or those who handle them.
What harm could a dead body be?
Ants also remove their dead from among them.
Is Cancer acting in the same manner?
Can it's dead be harmful to their living?
Cancer is now thought to be caused by bacteria.
Can we fight Cancer with the use of phages?
Is Cancer caused by the failure of phage colonies in the human body?
Are adjuvants in medications (along with other factors) causing this collapse to occur?
Can we use dead Cancer cells to kill living Cancer cells?
Sure, Charlie may have taken himself too seriously but he was on to something.
People don't hate Duke because they maintain strict admission standards, or because their teams are 'Too White", or because their Lacrosse team was wrongly accused of a gang rape.
People hate Duke because they win.
Did I cheer as a West Coast team beat the Blue Devils?
Sure, I HATE Duke.
But I hate Arizona as well.
Being a USC fan currently living in Texas - I'll root for USC, then any team from SoCal, then from Cali, them from the West Coast, then anyone playing against Duke.
Why do I HATE Duke?
Because I liked The Fab Four and I liked the Coach Tark era UNLV Runnin' Rebels.
I hate Duke because they beat the teams I liked - not because they adhere to tough economic and social admission standards.
Stanford is the best school in the land academically and it is the best school (all-around) in sports (winning the Sears Director's Cup every year except one).
No one really hates Duke for the reasons stated - you HATE Duke because Duke beat your team and does so most years.
Like I said, People don't hate winning - people HATE winners.
I've been to Waco and, unless you're a Baylor Bear fan, there's nothing there.
So when the story broke that a twenty three year old Black woman put herself through college to open and own a burger joint, "Good", I thought.
But then I read that she named her spot "Fat Ho Burgers".
"Even better", I thought.
Everyone is always preaching that people should own their own but then they always want to tell them how to own.
Why is this name offensive?
Is it the imagery that the term provokes?
Do most people think of a fat, greasy, Black woman when they hear the term?
Some intentional - some not.
Would you be offended while dining at Chewy Balls in Houston, Texas?
Sounds like a man requesting that his girl get out of bed to make him a sandwich after having sex.
Flavors of Negros has all kinds.
In this case, you might be interested in a bit of Young Dong.
Fat Ho has it all.
As shown - it's only a name.

Now news sources are reporting that people want their money back after buying regular table salt at up to six times it's normal cost.
It's Spring Break here and my young cousins have been working hard making repairs for relatives and neighbors.
Sure, going out to see the newest blockbuster would be cool but they have to save their money for the upcoming fair.
I usually try to group movies by genre.
War movies, Comedies, Action Flicks, Kung Fu movies or by directors or production companies.
One cousin wanted to watch the original Scream.
"Sure, not a problem. But I get to pick the other two."
Sometimes the kids get bored watching classic films, but not this time.
Today's connection was "The Arquette Family Films".
(Rated; four out of five stars by the kids. Good thing I didn't pick Desperately Seeking Susan for Rosanna's entry.)
My den was as lively as a Magic Johnson theater in the middle of the hood on a Friday night.
(Rated five out of five stars by the kids.)
"That's so-and-so from (fill in the blank)!", they yelled whenever they recognised an actor.
(Rated; five out of five stars.)
The kids weren't even offended by the use of the word "Nigger" in either Tarantino film.
My cousins' mothers can never understand why my cousins like to hang out with me even though I'm strict and I make them do work.
But I do something they don't.
I listen to their opinions, I talk to them, I spend time (not just money) with them, I teach them not just tell them how to do something.
By signing the the bill (effective sometime in 2014), President Obama just made you easier to track.
Most Americans will be required purchase health insurance or pay a fine.
But low-income Americans will not be forced to purchase insurance - most will have Medicare instead.
Maybe we will be forced to have some type of chip implanted which keeps track of our financial transactions as well.
I'm not big on conspiracy theories (There are far too many variables to make most work.) but recent events seem to make betting on the Book of Revelations the only sure thing.
