More rants: What I really think about Ivy League Soldier Gen. David Petraeus. What I really think should happen to the Jena 6, and the conflicting almost schizophrenic ethos showing how the violent crime issue withon the black community can, as Chris Rock says, "turn Rosie O'Donnell into Ted Nugent." Will a real American sculpt the MLK Monument or will the Chinese get their quid pro quo from corporate America (watch for more $10 jeans and Thomas the Train toys to disappear from the shelves, folks). More nude photos of Vanessa Hudgens and the hypocrisy of the media.

"I gave no orders for murder and plunder for murder and plunder's sake. Or for revenge. That is your province--visited on we, on the Red Indian, on your own brothers.

But I shall not answer to you for any of it!"
