"Papa Bear" Kilpatrick Heads To "Da Big House"

From the "UPDATED AT 12:11 P.M. -- Judge Ronald Giles just sent Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to jail moments after the mayor pleaded for forgiveness and admitted he made an unauthorized trip to Windsor on city business. Come back to as this story develops."

The late great City Ghetto Of Detroit will see its Mayor head off to jail for violating a court order not to travel. Thanks to Michelle Malkin for staying on this story. Mayor Kilpatrick violated an agreement with the 36th District Court not to leave the City and now his next trip will be to spend a night in the Hoosegow.

This idiot can't seem to keep his big mouth shut or respect the letter of the law. The list of allegations against Kilpatrick is long and sleazy. He's arguably one of the most corrupt Mayors in the U.S. and his role in what may have been an officially sanctioned murder of an Exotic Dancer is still open to speculation.

Will this arrogant turd learn anything from this latest incident? I doubt it. If the past hasn't taught him anything nothing will. In fact, this will probably give him more "street cred" in the "hoods" of Detroit. There is nothing I love more than seeing a crooked politician get his due.

Kwame = P.O.S. Enough said.

O/T: I just noticed you had "Too old to rock and roll, but to young to die" in your profile! Awesome dude! I was just listening to "My God" a little while ago. Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull were just phenoms with no equal.

Hey man, vote for this picture I took. You'll have to sign up, but it's easy. No scam or anything. I'd appreciate the vote.

One of the first albums I ever bought was Aqualung. I have a live concert somewhere in my VCD collection of Tull and Ian is at his best. Great versions of all of their music.

Another thing Toast, I finally read somewhere what Cross Eyed Mary really was all about. Hahahaha..

If you ever want to do a little downloading I have an FTP server I run from my house. If you know how to use an FTP client (it's easy) I have probably close to one hundred GIGS of music, that's video and audio. If you're interested I can always attach a text list of what I have.

Oh yeah, Consider my vote cast.

Man, that would be awesome!

I can't say enough about Tull. I remember seeing them in the early days of MTV, when they practically had no videos. I'm talking 1981. They would show a live version of Aqualung several times a day. Ian was in a white jumpsuit with a big A in a box on the back of it. It's burned into my memory. And Sweet Dreams? What a great song! Cross-Eyed Mary, Thick As a Brick, Skating Away, Songs From the Wood, too many to list. Fuck!!

I've been in the sauce tonight. Bourbon, a rarity for me. Thank god for rain. I needed a little release.

Thanks for the vote, btw. I have some more photos of the plastic wrap from my heady days in Costa Rica, but they are classified. For now anyway.
