    Don’t know how several comments were deleted but I’m re-stating mine…
    #10-Still say R. King and Karl Malone were separated at birth.
    #9-Oh no, not my man JWE (Julius Winfield Erving). Why did you buy a crib in Utah of all places? You need to let this one go.
    #8-These companies need to freeze on illegally using music from these artists starting with Pepsi paying War for one of its latest commercials!
    #7-D@mn El…
    #6-The more I observe these so-called celebrity couples, the more I believe they are just like regular folks. They do NOT know how to choose a suitable mate. Some may enjoy some early success/promise but most of them will break up in a few years.
    #5-The young man was out of control and should be severely punished.
    #4-You know me…as Ving Rhaymes would say “Im gonna get a couple of hard hittin brothas” and pay a visit to Troy Dale West’s mother or wife’s home and issue a little payback!!
    #3-Some good stories, some so-so, some worthless but the saddest was the 11 y.o. who lost her life
    to leukemia!
    #2-Two winners/a winning combination-President BHO and The Lakers.
    #1-Admirable attempts at resolutions but in my opinion Number 5 is the most achievable!

    Now, who can deny WE HAVE A GREAT PRESIDENT Who succeeded where others have failed (just like in health care). The Great BHO administration is again successful as he stated in his campaign promise … quote “WE WILL KILL Bin Laden” All you naysayers, Tea Party idiots, birthers, Republicans, trash racists etc., ALL YOU STUPID Motor Scooters, GTH. Shack Rests!!!
