More Randomness

1: RIP to the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. I'm sad, but not shocked. Irwin rolled the dice several times. I grieve for his family and friends, though.

2: Ron Isley, of the veteran soul group The Isley Brothers was sentenced to three years in prison on tax evasion charges. Not smart. This is why you buy one less Bentley or limo and hire an accountant who will show you how to legally, I mean, find ways to make contributions or donations that will be considered tax writeoffs.

3:Shoutouts to the old school NBA ballers that were inducted in the Hall of Fame last night: Charles Barkley, Joe Dumars of the 1989-1990 back-to-back champion Detroit Pistons (Bad Boys), and the Human Highlight Film, Dominique Wilkins. I grew up watching those cats, and it's nice to see them get into the Hall.

4: And, in the Common Sense department, Madrid has banned the skinnier models from the catwalk:,,3-2349467,00.html

I understand that some people are skinny, and most of us could stand to lose a few pounds, but seriously, the anorexic models and incredible shrinking Hollywood actresses (Lindsay Lohan raise your hand) are sending a bad message to the youth. There's a difference between skinny and looking like you are from a poverty-stricken country. I wanna kidnap some of these girls and take them to the buffet. Get toned, not bone-thin.

5: As always: Be easy, readers.
