That’s the new, standard size of airline seats in economy class.  If the flight is over 2- or 3- hours, I think they should provide a pistol to anyone squeezed into the middle seat – so he or she can blow their brains out.

Marilyn Chambers said it best:

“You can stab a breast in an American film, but you can’t kiss one.”

April 22, 1952 – April 12, 2009

Yes, Marilyn was the woman behind the Ivory Snow box before she was Behind the Green Door.


My best friend, Amy, met the legend at a poster convention.

Two beautiful women.

MY Uncle? I Thought He Was YOUR Uncle!

Friday, December 6th, 2013

In the 1930’s, Louisiana Governor Huey “Kingfish” Long made an unscheduled visit to a small rural  town to visit one of his beautiful, young “supporters”.  His chauffeur knocked on the hotel room door.

“Kingfish! There’s a bunch of people around the car yellin’ you promised a new road if you got elected.  You got elected and there’s no new road.  What should I tell ‘em?”

Huey shouted back, “Tell ‘em I lied.”

Uncle Obama won't be deported.

President Obama acknowledged  Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School.  This  contradicts a statement made last year that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.

Does Kanisha Have More Sex Than Tiffany?

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Simply, no. Many studies show the rate of sexual intercourse by black and white teenage girls between the ages of 14-19 is statistically insignificant.* The BIG difference is that young African-American girls get pregnant more often and keep their babies without being married. Why?

The answers are complicated.  They include social, cultural, and psychological differences.  Among these (obviously generalizing):

• The “dream map” of white, middle class girls is: finish school, get a job, meet a good guy for a big wedding, have children, and then buy a nice house. Black girls’ dreams – especially those from lower class backgrounds – are much different and not nearly as grand.

• Because their long term goals of an education and career aren’t realistically as strong as white girls’, a pregnancy does not necessarily interfere.

• Since black people don’t live as long whites (by about 10-years,) girls are encouraged to “hurry” the child process along – often by mothers and grandmothers who want to see their offspring.

• No girl wants to marry a guy who is uneducated, unemployed, and may spend years being incarcerated.  Black girls have a much smaller husband pool.

The list goes on and is even more complicated.  But when people like Maury Povitch and Bill Cosby say, “just cross your legs,” their advice sounds naive and stupid. It’s like telling overweight people to “just eat less” without understanding how they got fat in the first place.

Hundreds of years later, America is still paying the price of slavery.  It’s like future generations of your children paying off the huge national debt WE created.  Of course it’s not fair.
