rush limbaugh Wants A Piece Of The Rams

People are shocked that rush limbaugh wants a piece of the Rams. I, for one, am not the least bit surprised at all. Being born and raised here I would have to say that St. Louis is one of the most racist cities. To me we operate on the "separate but equal" junk from the Jim Crow days. From our neighborhoods to our clubs. Sometimes we are able to mingle together but for the most part we are separate. I do believe that the Rams do need some money to help build the team. However, I do believe that going his route would be the biggest mistake and the final nail in the coffin of the St. Louis Rams. The Rams owners didn't listen to the city when we said to go after Mike Vick, but I hope they are paying attention when we say we don't want or need a blatant racist to become apart of the organization.

Between The Sheets: The Darkest Child

Hopefully you will have a box of kleenex available and your favorite brand of wine. This book is heart wrenching and very sad, however you will not be able to put it down. My heart went out to the children in the book. I was screaming at the words "hold on girl, your cries have not fallen deaf on God's ears" I knew they couldn't hear me but I just felt better saying it. I will not give one clue about this book because it is something that you just have to read for yourself. This book is The Color Purple meets Push (the book based on the movie Pleasure that Monique is starring in).

Maxwell gave STL a SHOW, heart and all

Singing mainly songs from her latest cd, Chrisette Michele looked and sounded stunning! She opened the concert Friday Night at the Scottstrade Center. Jammin' to a 5 piece band, Chrisette held her own.  Common brought a lil' taste of Chicago to St. Louis. The crowd bobbed their heads and waved their hands as he rapped, two-stepped, and break-danced across the stage. As Maxwell tweeted (during the show), "chrisette MICHELE is LOVE... COMMON is the LIGHT!" And Maxwell was the heart of the show! He was comedic and full of life w/ his dancing and crooning of songs old and new. The energy from all three acts was amazing. The vibe in the arena was that of gloryfing women &showing love for one another!
