Looting vs Finding

I had some witty observations on why grown men still buy sneakers, but it seems silly with everything going down South.


Interesting to how people of color are consistently being labeled as 'looters.' Eb sent me a great pic depicting the news bias in this matter. But I can't upload it. Check it on O-Dub's blog and on Daily Kos

Are you a looter when you are scavenging for a food in the midst of a disaster of this magnitude. Especially when thousands have not seen a cop, trooper, or soldier in a week.

Now is the time for tough guy George Bush to show the same balls he did with Iraq. I think that America should be very careful. We are spread very thin across the globe. And with sending troops and resources down to the Gulf Coast will spread us even further.

I know it is rude to discuss, but what will be the political ramifications for the Bush political machine. He better get his ass in gear or he can put Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama in the blue colimn in '06/'08.
In business related news, just for balance sake. I willl be down in DC for this. Try and make it if you can
In less than two weeks, hundreds of musicians, technologists, industry insiders, academics and attorneys will convene in Washington, DC at what's shaping up to be the most compelling music/technology event of the year.
