Don't get me started, but my memories of the Lakers are the "Show Time" Lakers of PatRead More Riley's day at The Forum. I was fortunate enough to have access to seats to most of the regular season games and all the play off games. The joy of watching a team that seemed to me to Love The Game!!! the fans, the quirky extras like Dancin Barry, the Rambis Youth stomping around in their horned rimmed glasses. My friends sprinkled throughout the Forum, meeting before, at half time and after the game in the Club, some sporting Celtic shirts during the playoffs....I wouldn't miss a game, even if it meant driving down by myself. I have yet to see the Lakers play at the Staple Center only being able to afford to go a Clipper game. I agree it was a sad ending for a stellar coach in Phil Jackson, and even sadder to have my friends dear 11 year old fan witness the behavior of athletes that should realize they are role models for young sports fans....Oh Well...next year, hopefully it will be better...

Are you kidding? Obama will never be Martin Luther King. MLK believed his message and stayed trueRead More to his faith. Obama doesn't have a message or a faith. Who is this man? He's shocked that we don't know. Is he a Christian, hasn't been to church since he was elected. He prays at home now. Can't be seen pandering to the Christians, can he. As to his "Change" message. Yea, the change was that he would be President. What's his left wing "Union" message anyway, open your mouth, we will provide. In 2011, he just wants to find a way to blame the rich for the failure of the country. They are the only ones that have done anything wrong. Why don't they share their wealth more? If they'd just give it up, we'd all be alright. What a joke. They didn't do anything to earn that money, right? Now, we have universal healthcare requirements. Never worked anywhere else, but hey why not. It sounds good. It might get him reelected. Except, now for people who have insurance, the rates skyrocketed [hey they are rich, why not]. We don't have the funds to cover all and keep our system viable. Did you know that you can be in this country for 12 hours and qualify for Medi-Cal benefits? Osama is dead, did Obama kill him? Nope, the same troops that were already in Pakistan, killed Osama. Blame the Republicans vs. Blame the Democrats, what a crock. We are to blame. We elect these idiots. We need to be involved. Teach our kids to vote. Be prepared to do our part.

Hmmm...and I'll take it that you come from the the 'well-to-do' income bracket, Eliza, and all thisRead More talk about you paying a little more in taxes isn't making you happy (even though you probably have a fantastic accountant that does wonders in making those taxes go away). Problems aside, yes, I believe Obama still has the power to become a great man when all is said and done. I'm sure you voted for that fabulous W. Bush who got us mostly into this sludge pit...and by the way, what the f*(k does his religion have to do with Obama acting and serving as President? And who I am giving credit to for taking out Osama? Bush? No. Clinton? No. Obama? Yes. You better believe if Bush did it on his watch he'd be making a National Holiday out of it. Obama, on the other hand, got it done, addressed it, and moved on. Now, if he can just get this economy rolling again, I won't have to make any more blog posts about it (would that be swell?).

Wow, good thing words are not bullets or I'd be dead right now. Religion has nothing to do withRead More Obama being President or not. You compared him [loosely] to JFK and MLK which I thought was a joke. Martin Luther King [I said] had a message and [at least] stayed true to his faith. That is where the comparison came into play. Don't [loosely] compare someone to a great man, unless you want someone else to say where is the comparison? And, as to "well-to-do", while it's really none of your business, I'm a single Mother living in Toluca Lake. I am raising two kids and have 3 dogs, 3 cats [most of which I saved from the streets], I have fish, a lizard, and a snake. Just a regular gal who read your article and thought, how is Obama great? We have skyrocketing unemployment, I cannot afford health insurance for my kids [any longer], I'm going to be mandated [again] to cover them [soon], I am barely holding on to what I've worked for than 30 years to get, and he's concerned that the debt ceiling needs to have sufficient funds to cover his reelection campaign in 2012. As I said, I'm agitated with all parties, so there is no need to attack me. Using foul language is absurd [even when it's abbreviated]. Finally, it would not be swell that you made no more blog posts about it. You should be asking questions every minute of the day. I will continue doing so and commenting even when my commentary is so disliked. Take care and remember the glass is still half full.

He was a drunken murderer, period! It suited him and his lifestyle perfectly. Too bad someone had toRead More join him in death.

Robert, I would first like to thank you for the spirited replies...I think these blogs could use aRead More lot more of it. And I will agree with some of your statements, but last I checked, they said they wouldn't have Ryan's blood-alcohol levels for another 2 to 4 weeks. At the end of the day, Ryan was most likely intoxicated, speeding, and being reckless with his life and that of another. We won't ever agree on this topic, just as we most likely wouldn't agree on politics or the abortion issue....but, I'm sticking by my words and will hope that Ryan rests in peace and will remain thankful for all the humor that Ryan and the Jackass boys brought to me during my lifetime. I'm sure that you have people/celebrities that you've admired in your life that have gone out in some less-than-stellar fashion...but that's Hollywood and that's life. Ryan went out in a bad way and took someone with him...and that sucks, period. And yes, Dick, Ryan did go out the way he lived, which is par for the course. But until all the facts are in, why don't you both just hold off on burning his soul at the cross. TMZ.com is not a forensics team, and none of us are perfect. So again, I say, RIP Ryan. And may stupid, ridiculous, and over-the-top comedy live on because we live in a WAY TOO UPTIGHT, POLITICALLY CORRECT SOCIETY that really needs to chill the f*&k and quit the self-righteous crap. If it is proven that Ryan was driving drunk and recklessly, then shame on him.

Eh, I get Patrick's point here. Screw you other holier-than-thou crackpots

Love will find you when you absolutely loathe it. When you have given up on it. When you haveRead More written it off for good, cursed it to hell, and then burnt it up in flame. - truer words never spoken. After I hit this wall and decided to spend my life alone... Bam! Married within a year and suddenly the happiest idiot I know. Congrats, you both deserved it. Bjk

Ahhh.... hope springs eternal! Thanks Patrick, I needed that.

A fluffy piece. But a good fluffy piece.
