Just sharing a few snatched thoughts about Sly Stone, Dick Cheyney and the body guard of Busta Rhymes. Nothing very serious. Just stuff...

  • I haven't read the memoir by Carlos Santana's wife, Deborah, titled The Space Between the Stars. But just read a blurb about her having dated the man of the moment, Sly Stewart of Sly and The Family Stone. I learned of this in the context of a story that said Carlos had not been himself in the days prior to last week's Grammy Awards. Probably because he and Deborah would see her old flame, Sly, there. Even after many years of marriage, some insecurities just never completely go away. Well, Carlos... after seeing Sly on stage in all his lizardry, we doubt you should worry about your beautiful woman slithering away.

  • The death of Busta Rhyme's body guard is quite disturbing. Another senseless murder in the rap world, and the costly dragging through the mud of another rap star and producer, Busta and Swizz Beats. Sounds like there was an outbreak of hatorade over Swizz's beats. I mean, dude's tracks are killer but dayum. I guess Swizz's beats really are worth their weight in gold, so someone felt robbed of potential riches. Or simply bruised of ego, not having been given one of the man's brilliant tracks. And for this, another widow and fatherless child are made.

  • Now we know for sure Vice President Cheyney's aim is shot. And so is his friend, lawyer Harry Whittington. How the veep mistaked his bud wearing neon orange gear for a little brown quail is unexplicable. Except my imagination runs wild with possible explanations, as life is so often stranger than fiction. This begs lots of questions. Including, for me, the supposition that this was no accident. Maybe Whittington is the owner of some coveted "beat" that political rock stars would kill to get their war monging hands on... After Googling the victim's name, I learned that Harry Whittington, an old friend of Dubya's, is head of a Texas funeral services organization, S.C.I. And Mr. Bush and S.C.I. are implicated in some questionable FEMA contracts to handle the bodies of Katrina victims. Hmmm, perhaps the plot thickens.

I read this somewhere, and it has me SERIOUSLY wondering...

If this 'accident' had happened the other way around [Cheney getting "accidentally" shot], would the hunting partner be walking away unscathed? No arrests, no apparent problems whatsoever. BUT- if the lawyer had shot Cheney- would he be dead, in police\secret service custody, or free?

oooh, love the conspiracy theory on Dick! Except I think these fools have enough money to pay others to do their dirty work so they don't ever have to be questioned like this.

and great question, mr. techjitsu...sad thing is i think we all know the answer to the question.

hey tech!
right you are, as usual. had mr. whittington 'accidentally' shot dick cheyney, whittington's peeps would be planning funeral services at this very moment.

true that. but with the law investigation being so sketchy and secretive, who knows what's being hidden. dick could have been liquored up. dick could be suffering alzheimer flashes or whatever. there's more to this story, is suspect. that was not normal.

Two elderly gentlemen involved in an accidental shooting at a quail ranch!!

Certainly the Lib Press could find a better diversion than that to help their friends in the flailing Democratic

Compare that to the Clinton's cover-up of the Vince Foster Murder ("suicide"). Now THAT'S scandalous!!!

the man may die and no one really knows the facts, and we all know that cheney is a hot head.

as for clinton v. vince foster, no one ever said clinton was personally on the scene, so that's a stretch for you to equate. cheney doesn't at all deny shooting this man, whittington, and there are eye witnesses who've yet to speak publicly about the event.

i hope all works out for the victim and for the vp. but i sure hope that whatever is being covered up isn't as bad as they're making it start to look.

RE: your comment "we all know that Cheney is a hothead". Do you know the man? If not then how do you arrive that this is 'common knowledge'? Are you inferring that Mr.Cheney in a fit of pique may have attempted to murder this gentleman?

It sort of undermines the integrity of your position when you make comments devoid of any real facts. Don't you think that it is a bit patronizing to assume that "all" of your readers think the same as you?

On the other hand there are plenty of facts implicating the Clintons with the Vince Foster Coverup:

i'm sure you'll recall mr. cheyney "losing it" and shockingly saying "f*** you" to leahy. if you know ANYONE else so high ranking who has spoken this way to another top official and not even apologized, let us know. that was way inappropriate and hot headed.

Its takes a Clintonesque leap to assign the label of 'hothead' to someone on the basis of one remark made during 40 years of exemplary service to ones' country.

But if indeed such language defines one as -as you say - a "hothead" then there is (lol) probably a great deal for a cause for concern for at least one more:
