RE: Academy Awards Did Blacks A Disservice

Ok, the article below just came out today and I think it was written wonderfully and really captures the essence of this years' Oscars. It is a bit of a read (I think I spent about 10 minutes to read it while eating lunch), but it is worth it. --------- Star-Spangled Evenings There's no reason to be...

Well hopefully we don't have any war for now... right now the terrorism just needs to stop and then things can be worked out in a civil manner.

Looks like Arafat should get cozy in his compound because he's going to be there for a while.
