Breaking out the Yanni, Kitaro and John Tesh CD's with some foie gras and a nice pinot noir to get ready for Waterfire. YEAH OBAMA!

It's sad but that's probably how so many Plaza people will be celebrating the event. A shame really that KC hasn't busted out of the mold the media has created for us.

Justin Bieber is keeping some rough company. Good for him.

What's Kander's plan B?

Kander is just gross. Just saw his stupid commercial about boots. Sounds like duh, gee, Tennessee.

Justin Bieber is a little closet queer! I'm sick of seeing his gay following sporting that faggot style hair cut too.

Jermaine is a stupid, doddering douche. He holds up committee meetings with speeches, rambling on and on nonsensically trying to take credit for East Patrol, when actually he got in the way more than anything.

Michael Flethcher is coming back to town and Jermaine Reed is as nervous as a whore in church. He's campaigning every chance he gets, at meetings, on Channel 2, wherever he can get an audience.

Women with tattoos especially full sleeves...that's just trashy!!! see a councilor and work your issues out instead of mark yourself up like that...My opinion and fuck you if you dont like it!!!

Jermaine showboated that's for sure. But his constituents don't care if he stays in good with alvin and the gang.

Does anyone know if an attempt was made to rescue Theresa's daughter, or is she a throwaway?

There was an attempt to spin the story. That's all that matters.

If Theresa gave a damn as a parent her daughter would have never turned tricks, Byron. It is very sad.

When I visit the Aldi's in the 3rd District, I always write my blood type on my shoes. Vote for me.
