We're collecting the crush stories and objects that make your chest hurt (and possibly also make you laugh, sigh, or cringe). 2) He is going to make a CD for my best friend for her birthday and he is going to add a "special" song.
4) When someone dared him to ask my best friend out, people were yelling that he was blushing and smiling (I didn't look because I felt sad, and he never answered). 6) One day in Study Hall, he asked the teacher if I could move from my assigned seat and help him study without even asking me first. 9) When he was acting demonic (he knows that I get freaked out by that) and I gasped, he put his hand on my arm and told me he was just kidding (he kept his hand on my arm for about 10 seconds). 10) Also when I was helping him study, he would lean over really close, turn the book towards him while it was still in my grasp, and have his hand over mine.
13) He was doing his Michael Jackson impersonation (which freaks me out), and I commented on how he is only doing it because it creeps me out. 15) When a kid sat and blocked our view of eachother in Sciece class, we kept moving to see eachother.
17) My friend (not my best friend) walked by and heard him talking to the guy who likes me (not the one I like) and she said that the guy I like said, "It's only because you like her!" to the guy who likes me. 18) The friend who dared the guy I like to ask out my best friend also dared him to ask me out.
I would like to think he likes me, but sometimes he does something towards my best friend that worries me. Get him to ask your friend on a date, and you go along acting as the chauffeur, then sometime during the evening your friend realizes she needs to fly solo for a while and Eric Stoltz, errgh, I mean the boy you like, realizes that he’s loved you ALL ALONG, and you get a boyfriend and a pair of sweet diamond earrings. WEAPONS OF CAIN, a memory-vision of Vietnam, is the spellbinding story of Lieutenant Joseph Tompsen, whose tour of duty in Vietnam introduces him to street-wise villagers who become his family and to military cohorts who become his antagonists. Author Thom Brucie has been called a voice of the unheard because of his ability to reveal the sometimes unheralded beatitudes of fortitude and charity through his stories of the everyday deeds of ordinary lives. War Stories, a collection of short stories written by veterans, touches upon every aspect of military life from hard combat to losing a comrade, to making love after being blown up by a mortar to honoring the war dead to remembering the Indian Wars, WWII, lost loves, and surrender to a medical system that never understands its military patients and yet is designed to serve only them. In BROTHER DIONYSUS, veteran Sean Brendan-Brown explores military life and its aftermath through characters as strangely wrought as those peopling Sherwood Andersona€™s fiction and as real as those portrayed in Raymond Barthesa€™ collection of cultural essays, Mythologies.
In this collection of short stories about veterans who went to war but left without a war story to tell. Explore with Michael Lund the lives of these veterans who discover being in the service is not something to be edited out of a personal history, but an experience that stays in memory, not an ending but the beginning of a measure of peace, no matter how short the stint, or inglorious.
This eloquent anthology, carefully stitched together by veteran Richard Epstein, contains poetry, prose, and songs written by 21 Memorial Day Writersa€™ Project participants. These twenty-one short stories tell of the pioneering of those who came from many countries, many customs, many cultures, and brought much of that mix with them to create the American West as we now know it.
Not since Breece D'JPancake has a writer the likes of Danny Johnson emerged from the South with all the glory and hell of life attached and intact in his fiction.
In Mickey 6, Vietnam Veteran Koelscha€™s carefully wrought characters, torn between duty and personal ethos, tread deeply into the circumstances that force payment of an eternal price from the souls and minds of those who serve, and from those who lead, as they fight for their country. Composed of riffs on the forms of haiku (extended haiku), memoir (micro memoir) and photography (photosculpture), this electronic book is composed of 51 panels grouped in sets of three as 17 triptychs. The 45 poems that compose KOREAN ECHOES draw the reader into piecing together a puzzle, with each poem presenting a small measure of the Korean War soldier's world, a world wholly embedded in the deepest design at the heart of human experience, embedded as if words were shrapnel, steel moments of clarity rendered from language and pounded into consciousness through Tom Sheehan's craftsmanship, each poem a sharpened moment of awareness of all humanity can be, do, and endure, and still love life and living. In his third espionage thriller, author Dick Reynolds packs the pages with world travel, love, murder and the surreal life of unwilling spy Sandy Gilmartin. As the sun begins to set on the Soviet Union, desperation slowly grips this once great empire's staunchest champions.
Vicky Armstrong, 48-years old, is broke & living in a VW van in California after her husband leaves her for another woman. Dick Reynolds a€?A romantic thriller chockfull of cross-continental challenges to test Averil and Mark Holloway's 10-year marriage.

The plot is a thick one, its sort of childish but even children might find it too exaggerated for their tastes. At first I thought, how is it possible that two really great indian movies came out during the same time? What is left to be said about movies like Pardesi Babu, I guess one can never get tired of typical Indian movies. China Gate is about ten former army men, who were court-martialed for fleeing the battlefield.
Akshaye plays a college student whose rivalry with Urmila slowly turns into love with the help of his grandfather (Kadar Khan) and her ayah (Aruna Irani). Any movie Nana Patekar is in has to have some validity so when viewing this film you should already expect it to live up to certain standards.
Anil Kapoor plays the son of Anupam Kher, who has just come back to India after studying in America. This film was filmed in New York City, and could have used the oppurtunity to impress its viewers a lot more than it supposedly did. Ravi (Chandrachur) and Kajal (Mahima) are a young and frisky couple living the good-life with their young daughter and live-in Nanny (Sushma Seth). You would think Amitabh would start doing father roles now and act his age, but I guess that blood in his veins is still younger then his body. Aarzoo is is a love triangle in which two heroes fall for the same girl and it requires a sacrifice from one of them to give the movie a happy ending. Silsila Hai Pyar Ka brings Karisma back to the screen, a year and half after Dil To Pagal Hai, in a welcome return where she continues to display the same charisma.
The film opens with a synopsis of the crimes of Jeet Balraj (Sunjay Dutt), a killer on death row. The plot is as follows: Gajendra Singh (Mohan Joshi), murders both a simple village man, Surjit (Anil Dhawan), and his wife, and seizes their property.
In Haseena Maan Jaayegi, Sanjay Dutt and Govinda play Sonu and Monu, spoiled brats of rich dad Kader Khan (Ameerchand) who sports a PA in Satish Kaushik (Kunj Bihari) to attend to his phone calls. Another typical film, for some reason this month, there wasn't even one movie released from Bollywood that was good.
Hote Hote Pyar Ho Gaya took four years in the making and the end result would've been better if it had been released in the mid-80's. The movie is an Indian adaptation of the Hollywood classic, An Affair To Remember, and the premise is a little more ridiculous.
How would you handle two overpowering actors who are both brilliant and intense about their work? Before I begin this review, I would like to warn Govinda of his steady decline into the Mithun stream of films.
This movie might as well be called "Urmila" cause thats what you basically see through out most of the film.
Vaastav is about Raghu (Sanjay Dutt), who lives in a chawl with his parents (Shivaji Satam and Reema Lagoo) and his brother Vijay (Mohnish Behl). The much anticipated "Hum Saath Saath Hain" has arrived and people are rushing into the theatres to see it. A couple of weeks ago, actually Christmas eve to be exact, I happened to walk into BlockBuster and with no particular film in mind, I glanced upon the word, "Chutney" on the cover of some movie box. This film stars two new actors namely the dashing Hrithik Roshan and the cute Amisha Patel. Bobby Deol plays Badal, who is seeking revenge on behalf of his family {who was victim to the ruthless crimes of Jai Singh Rana (Ashutosh Rana)}, who is the corrupt police officer that caused riots to take place in Punjab and Delhi. In Hera Pheri, Sunil's character is poor and leaves his ghown in search for a job in a bank where his father used to work. Baaghi, revolves around Vikram (Aditya Pancholi), who plays an underworld lord with Raja (Dutt) as his right hand assassin.
Gang has quite a leading cast of stars: Jackie Shroff, Nana Patekar, Kumar Gaurav, and Javed Jafrey. This film is a comedy through out, and a surprising one since you would think that an Indian film could only surmount to cheeziness. Preity (Priya) is portrayed as a strong willed girl who has a caring family and particularly a loving father and an over protective older brother. In Hum To Mohabbat Karega, Bobby plays a waiter, Raju Bhatnagar, who is in love with a journalist from Ch. Govinda plays Raja and Johnny Lever is Kanhaiya - two crooks who pose as narcotic officers at airports and loot innocent strangers. The story revolves around the murder of Roshni (Tabu), a nurse at the Military Nursing Service. Abhishek Bachchan is introduced in this film in his first starring role following the legacy of his father Amitabh Bachchan. The movie starts out with Siddhu (Fardeen) and Anu (Urmila), next-door neighbors who have silly squabbles and eventually fall in love. Raju (Govinda) and Urmila (Urmila, yes, with the same name) are in New Zealand, where they happen to meet the typical 'one mishap after another' Govinda, fall in love, and depart to return to India, planning to meet again very soon.
Raj (Salman) is a poor orphan who comes to Mumbai from Goa with dreams of becoming a super star singer.
Being a Kapoor creation; Hamara Dil was expected to fill spaces previous Kapoor films such as Pukar and Prem failed to. Yes, he's back, and with all due respect to Jaya Bachchan and Karishma Kapoor, the spotlight and attention was mostly on Hrithik Roshan. The setting of the movie is Punjab, and the main female lead, Sahiba (Aishwarya), comes from a traditional Rajput family. As he faces life on deatha€™s terms, one shattering moment will forever change his world and theirs in this novel of loss and redemption. His use of Vietnamese folklore and folk practices embellish the rich descriptions of place to create a setting so full of sensory detail that one feels as if the exotic village of Cam Ranh is located just down the road and around the corner.
This anthology, featuring new and previously published fiction, is loaded with the imaginative powers of veterans from every era of war since the Korean War. Brendan-Browna€™s characters navigate the quagmire of life after military service, never failing to make a strong statement about the state of the culture, never failing to find humor in the most mind-boggling situations, and never failing to disappoint readersa€™ desires to know what ita€™s really like to live after going to war. Forty years after their experience, these veterans begin asking if there is something more to say about their military service. Spanning 1993 a€“ 2011, a period in United States history that began in peacetime and has stretched into the longest war fought by the U.S. Add a measure of Tim O'Brien's stylization of military life and you still have only a glimmer of the storytelling you'll love in the Harry and Bo collection. With themes applicable to warriors of all eras, Mickey 6 chronicles the struggles of leadership in war, of loss of humanity, and of the enduring spirit of those who must return to life from the ravages of war.
To form each triptych, these folding-in-upon-center panels are arranged as two tablets of writing that enclose an image, the inner core, a visual representation of the writera€™s thoughts. KOREAN ECHOES, a poetic testament to the tenacity of the human spirit to survive the killing fields of war through time eternal, presents themes as well known to today's warrior as to the ancient warrior of The Iliad and The Odyssey: the battle to understand war, to achieve reconciliation, and to forgive the enemy and the self. A momentary encounter with a Norwegian beauty sends Sandy, engineer and reluctant spy, on a journey from the groves of Orange County, California to the snowbanks of Norway.
This is the story of the courageous few who fight to hold off that final sunset, and of the American counter-intelligence operatives who bring the Cold War to end game.
As Mark's fascination with his first love leads to an affair, will Averil's love endure Mark's tangled web of deceit?
A great volume (for the living room or the class room) to get the conversation started about the wartime experience and military life. If you're like the very few Bollywood fans who demand new and meaningful plots than Dil Se is for you.
We're constantly shown how the upper class - lower class division is still very wide spread in India and in a good way. With the really boring films that have come out recently it is very pleasantly surprising to watch films like this. The sort of reunion for actors Shahrukh Khan and Kajol who starred in the smash hit "DDLJ" together.
After being branded cowards, they live a non-existential life with a story woven into each character.
The responsible gang's demand is that one of their members be released from police custody.
The illegitimate, Muslim, arms thief son Afthab (Ajay Devgan) and the legitimate, Hindu, rich, advertising executive son Dhananjay (Saif Ali Khan) are introduced to each other on their father's deathbed. The film has its moments of brilliant humor but it also has moments in which the fast forward button on all remote controls is required.
There life is even more complete with two adorable little kids and mother dearest (Himani Shivpuri). Well this couple doesn't have to worry about that, cause they fell in love without seeing each other. The (unfortunately) fading Jackie Shroff and the current Numero Uno Kajol lead this lackluster film. Some parts are great while others are just horrible, and as a whole, the film amounts several notches above the average Bollywood action flick.
Hero lives in a basti and loves Rani (Rani Mukherjee), Rani just thinks of Hero as a good friend. Kittu (Aftaab) is a College student who has an obsession with an actress named 'Malika' played by none other than Urmila. Zamindar Dharmaraj (Anil Kapoor) is the head of a village and represents the Supreme law of the land.
They both do an excellent job in the film but Hrithik exceeds Amisha as he has sex appeal coming out of his belt buckle.
Although the film itself is somewhat distorted, as it doesn't appear to be as composed as it should have been. The movie is a story told from the mind of a dying man, Saket Ram (Kamal Haasan), an 89-year-old South Indian Brahmin.
Jackie Shroff plays Veer, a police inspector whose family is complete with wife Naina (Raveena Tandon) and a young son, Sahil. Here they meet NRI Raju Patel (Ali Asghar) who they practically rape and send to an insane asylum.
Her body is discovered in a pond, and CBI officer Jasraj Patel (Nana Patekar) is assigned to the case.
Kareena Kapoor also stars in her first film role following the engraved foot steps of her sister Karishma. Or you could just continue enjoying your friendship with him and not worry too much about the other stuff for now. With selections from 27 authors complemented with art by veteran Robert Wilson, this collection is packed not only with stories that bleed off the page and into your mind, but also with a new understanding of military life for those who have never experienced it.
Not since Raymond Carver has a writer more clearly shared the vagaries, joys, and comedy of human existence, while revealing the salvation in it for us all.
Among other things, they come to appreciate the lovers, friends, and family who helped them shape a new post-war identity. Will drifting into a life of espionage and romance lead Sandy to the secret of becoming the hero of his own life? Content on these pages represents thoughts and opinions of the writers & artists, and not the official position of MilSpeak Foundation, its directors or of any other person, organization or institution.
The problem against them comes in the form of the girl's three brothers and strict mother and the boy's parents. The British Empire then announces dugna lagaan (double tax), making the villagers' lives even more miserable and complicated than before. The film is not terrible, but could have been better, if only some of those "comedy" sequences had been cut out.


Sapna is constantly bored by Vishal's lack of romanticism, and his routine dance ball nights. A But he promised me on his returnA back to the United States I would be the first media personality to interview him in New York City.A  I never will forget how confident he was that he would return victorious.
Find out in this romp of a novel that will feed your need for more Scandinavian adventure if you love The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. Revisit the Korean War and Vietnam War on your way to Gulf Wars in memoir written by those who have lived the military life. As the catchy phrase to the movie "A Story of Burning Love" states, this is definitely a film that explores a hot topic: Sex!
Travel through Norway, China, and California with author Dick Reynolds, world traveler and mountain climber, who puts his all into every scene, every twist of plot, and every moment of guilty romantic pleasure. I brought him to Your disciples, but they couldna€™t heal him.a€?A  Jesus replied, a€?You unbelieving and rebellious generation! Bring him here to Me.a€? Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was healed.
Then the disciples approached Jesus privately and said, a€?Why couldna€™t we drive it out?a€? a€?Because of your little faith,a€? He told them. However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.a€?This same story is repeated in Mark Chapter 9, vs. A My second week at the course I got in early and became bored while waiting for my homeboys.
A My teammates and coaches were often challenged by my "Just give me the ball and get the hell out of my way" attitude.
I was there for forty days and forty nights, all that time I ate no food and drank no water.
A I was not the best athlete on the field or on the court, but I thought I was.A When the game was on the line I wanted the ball in my hands.
The Lord gave me the two tablets on which God had written with his own finger all the words he had spoken to you from the heart of the fire when you were assembled at the mountain. At the end of the forty days and nights, the Lord handed me the two stone tablets inscribed with the words of the covenant.Matthew Chapter 4, vs.
1-2 (NLT): Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil.
16-18 (NLT): And when you fast, dona€™t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private.
A A It was a hot evening and the constant in and out of the woods was not a pleasant undertaking. What I thought would be a nine-hole outing turned into eighteen holes and a White House visit and a Presidential appointment in 1969. As you can see above: Demons are cast out, the Holy Spirit speaks, Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Jesus had the strength to overcome Satana€™s temptations. General William Rogers, Hattie, President Nixon and HBA Petey and I would become great friends and in 1965 we would meet again.
A The United Planning Organization a self-help community organization was hiring "Neighborhood Workers." A They hired three, me, Petey and H.
A Two years later Rap would be named Chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee.
It can strengthen our faith and get difficult prayers answered.There are different types of fasting. A I would become a Roving Leader (Youth Gang Task Force) for the DC Recreation Department and Petey would find his new home in radio at WOL.
A Three UPO "Neighborhood Workers" would go on to establish their own independent idenities. A Petey would win 2 Emmy Awards and in 2007 there was a feeble attempt to do his life story on the big screen. We are trying this for 21 days to achieve some answers from God and help get some desperate and difficult prayers answered. He is now in jail serving a life sentence for the murder of a black Deputy Sherrif in Fulton County, Georgia. Brian McIntyre.A  He was sitting almost alone and there was no one waiting in line (compared to today's media circus). Fasting, praying, and special giving during the first month of the year sets the tone for the rest of the year. Fasting should be done in combination with things that can increase your faith, wisdom, and hearing from the Lord. Read a good Christian book, read Goda€™s Word in the Bible, listen with praise and worship to Christian music, and of course pray.
Thought for the week:A  For more advice and understanding read a€“ a€?Fastinga€? by Jentezen Franklin.
A  I looked down and notice that all the white media were seated on one side of half-court and all the blacks were seated on the other side of the half-court line. He stepped in front of me and said "I got it."A It would be the start of the 4th quarter that Mark returned to the press table table and apologize for his unprofessional actions. A There were other mistakes like someone thought a black Judy Holland was VP material---far from it. A It took a minute but in the meantime, he was making an effort to bring about change in his own way. A But according veteran (32 years) sports writer Bill Rhoden of the New York Times, progress in sports media pressrooms around the country are on a slow boat to China.A His recent appearance on the widely acclaimed television news show Meet the Press, he said, "the NBA, NFL and MLB are still dragging their feet. 22-24: The Lord God used the rib of the man to make a woman, and then he brought the woman to the man. Media pressrooms at Deadline are still the last plantations.A A Pioneering broadcaster and former NBA CBS basketball analyst Sonny Hill and now a sports talk show host on WIP Radio in Philadelphia said, "I am not surprised by Rhoden's statement, very little has changed in media pressrooms. And the man said, a€?Now, this is someone whose bones came from my bones, whose body came from my body. A One of the problems there is no networking among blacks who have moved it up the ladder." A That is an understatement. 13: If a man has sexual relations with another man as a man does with a woman, these two men have done a hateful sin. A  The copy rights for Inside Sports is own by News Week Magazine and it is own by the Washington Post.
A A First, there was a a problem with the PR Men from hell, Brian Sereno and Matt Williams. A A It was brought to my attention that Sereno was disrespecting the ladies of The Roundball Report. A The meeting was set before a Wizard's game in the press louge but Scott Hall was the lead man.
A He listened and we disagreed on some points but when we walked away from the table we were on the same page.
Most are basically good people that give to charities, help with the homeless, do good deeds and are friendly and nice to people. There are gay celebrities on TV that do wonderful works of mercy and charity for other people. A The community and everyone in it was a friend, the old and the young, the black and the white and the healthy and the lame. However, if you are gay and dona€™t turn from your present life style and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will go to the pool of fire (Hell).
A I was honored to speak at his retirement held at the arena just before the Bullets moved to Washington and changed their name to the Wizards.A Denny Gordon was in ticket sales and it seem like he knew everyone who brought a ticket. Yes, there is such a place and it is for eternity.A  If you intend to do it a€?somedaya€™, I hope you dona€™t get hit by a car and die before that happens. He wrote the rule book (the Bible) and it is expressed in it several times that he feels the punishment for this is death. A He was made the scapegoat after being sold out by his assisstant coach Bernie Bickerstaff and others.
We are all sinners in one way or another and must try hard to turn from our former self before we knew Jesus as our Lord. To the ones who say it is genetic or upbringing, I offer this: Alcoholism can be passed down through genes and wife-beating can be passed down through upbringing. A The meeting revolved around a charity all-star game scheduled for the Bahamas, the island home of NBA star Mycal Thompson. A Magic Johnson was one of All-Stars participating.A Representatives from the NBA included VP Ron Thorne, Legal Counsel Gary Bettman and head of security Horace Balmer. God is the highest authority, how do you think he will judge according to the Ten Commandments and his Word in the Bible? A A Gary Bettman is the Commissioner of the NHL, Thorne is somewhere lurking in the NBA, Balmer has since retired and Magic is a role model for Black America?
A A The short lived existence of basketball legend Michael Jordan as a Wizard's player and Executive in the front office.
A After the story broke he and several teammates made light of it during introductions of a game. A He was eventually suspended for most of the 2009a€“10 season.A The thing that I find disturbing about this Donald Sterling charade is that folks are acting like they were surprised by his rants against blacks.
A A I also notice the same "Old faces and voices" are called on to respond to the racist acts by men like Sterling---when they are a part of the problem . A He and Sterling were good friends because "Birds of a feather flock together." A  Check Magic's history out and you will discover the two have a lot in common. A Magic's claim to be a minority owner of the LA Dodgers is another sham (token black face).
James Brown (CBS Sports) another mis-guilded brother claiming to be a minority baseball owner and an expert on racism. A He did finally admit on the late George Michael Show (Sports Machine) "I have no say in making baseball decisions as a minority owner." A His role as a minority owner is to be paraded out on Opening Day as the black face to read the starting line-ups. Hook up with a good faith based organization like a€?Food for the Poora€? or a€?World Visiona€? and help these people out. A A This is the same Michael Wilbon that I had at least two recent conversations about the use of the N word as a term of endearment. A I have to give him credit, he will at least talk to me face to face and not behind my back.
God Bless.====================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 1-21-2010. A I tried to explain that his rationale that his grandfather's use the word as a term of endearment does not make it right today. A I told him he should not go on national television saying it is okay to use the N word among friends and family.
A It gives bigots like Donald Sterling the Green Light to do the same among his friends and family. A Plus, Michael told me he was not going to appear on the ESPN Show Outside the Lines because the white host had no horse in the race! A A I wish that Magic, James, Michael and the rest of the media experts would defer to black men like Hank Aaron, Dr. We run the risk of becoming weaker when we stay at home, so gradually we wona€™t even notice.
A But they wear the battle scars and have been on the front lines of the civil rights movement in real life and in the sports arenas of America. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.a€? Notice it says he is looking for someone, like a lion does.
A In other words, they have been there and done that.A I guess that is wishful thinking, especially when everyone wants to be an expert on television. A In the meantime, they don't know their asses from a hole in the ground but the beat goes on and on. A Auerbach would go a step further in the 1966-67 NBA season, when he stepped A down after winning nine titles in 11 years, and made Bill Russell player-coach. A A trailblazers, RED AND DOTIE AUERBACHi»? ON INSIDE SPORTSA Russell would eventually be the first black to win an NBA championship. A There are far too many crying "Foul" and playing the victims in this charade, to include some NBA owners.A Let me start with my homeboy, the great Elgin Baylor who was the Clippers GM for over 2 decades. His teams were perennial losers on the court and in attendance, but he picked up his check every two weeks and kept his mouth shut. A A In his deposition, Elgin spoke about what he called Sterling's 'plantation mentality,' alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race. They need Christian friends and other Christian adults if they are to survive in this world. A Talking about an organization needing a change of name and a face-lift---meet Leon Jenkins.A Jenkins seen above at a press conference trying to explain why the li»?ocal branch was honoring Sterling during the 100th Anniversary of the organization next month. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.a€?7 Because we need the help of good people.
A A He explained the previous award had been approved by the man he replaced and he just went along to get along.
Pastors cannot serve full-time, a building cannot be purchased, missionaries will not be sent out, ministries to the community wona€™t be fulfilled, and the lost wona€™t be saved. A A Sterling won't be the first to sleep black and think white when it comes to sex, politics and money. Slave owners lived by the credo and in modern day history there was the late Senator Strom Thurmond. And how can they preach unless they are sent?a€?10 Because God says we should go to church regularly.
A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer. A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. The game had been played in the Bahamas the previous year without incident or controversy.A It was obvious that there was a power-play being made by the league office to cancel the game. Thorn open the meeting by asking who was going to be responsible if one of the players was hurt during the game? A Magic suggested that the topic of conversation just might be centered around an injury to a player.
I tried to explain that playing the game was no different then one of the players participating in a pick-up game on a New York City playground in the off season. A What is this some kind of plantation?"A The room went silent and Horace Balmer the only other black in the room just shook his head and seem to be lost for words. 30-31: And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will morn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. A Thorn called off the discussion and promised to get back to us but he never did.A In the meantime, Magic Johnson disappeared and changed his number. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. A Mycal was a class act but his hands were tied when Magic decided to do his Houdini act.A Gary Bettman now runs the NHL, Ron Thorn is still in the NBA somewhere calling the shots, Horace Balmer has since retired and Magic is the face (black) in the middle of the Donald Sterling charade.
10: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and every thing done on it will be found out. A When all is said and done, the real victim despite all of her baggage is the girlfriend (The Whistle Blower) V.
A NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during his annoucement as it related to the punishment of Donald Sterling apologize to black NBA pioneers Earl Lloyd, Chuck Cooper and Magic Johnson. 36-43: But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.
In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of the night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into.


So too you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come. Pilots vanish, drivers vanish, wives vanish, neighbors vanish, and it is a world wide supernatural event that happens at the exact same time. A He reminds me of the controversial Celebrity Chef Paula Deen who alledgely use The N word to describe her love for black folks. There are no second chances of dropping to your knees and asking for forgiveness because it comes and goes in a blink of an eye. A  How should we expect her to know if she has never walked in our shoes ?A  When it is a part of your DNA it is difficult to rid yourself of the gene.A  A One morning I was watching Ms. Wars, Nation against Nation, famines, earthquakes, natural disasters, and a sin loving generation.
This award was longed overdue and I wonder why it took the NAACP so long to finally recognized Mr. I always interpreted the a€?He will come like a thief in the nighta€? as have a duel meaning. Belafonte in accepting the award asked, "Where are today's black leaders?A  Our children's blood is still running in our streets---there is work still to be done.
Some people know in advance when they will die and they, believe it or not, are the lucky ones. The coalition stated it will urge President Obama to mention an urban jobs plan in his state of the Union speech on February 12th----Good luck! Hint: It is hot, miserable, people are gnashing their teeth and screaming, and your caretaker has horns --------- hhmmmmmm.
Ben Carson of John Hopkins University Hospital.A  His prayer and message was centered around health care, the economy, American debt, and tax reform, thus taking dead aim at President Obama's platform for the nation. However, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and turned your life around you will be going somewhere that is truly pure love.
Carson spend 25 minutes talking about the nation's ills and solutions with the President sitting less than 5 feet from him.A  When all was said and done, President Obama was not looking so Presidential! If I am wrong, then worms get me just like you but if I am right I live in love and you dona€™t. I just dona€™t know where people get their ideas from because the Bible tells it like I do. Carson set the record straight from the very beginning.A  He made it clear he was not taking any wooden nickels. Also, it is also true that before Jesus came to the earth as a man, that all the pagan nations were defeated by Goda€™s people the Israelites. Why ---- because the Israelites worshiped the only God there is and the pagans worshiped false ones. A PS:A  Hope youa€™re not on one of those planes where the Pilot is a follower of Christ when the Rapture comes.
In 2010, he became that series' youngest driver and the first black driver to win a race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
A close friend of mine that has been partially paralyzed by strokes, pays for aids to "help". If they show up, they usually just sit and do nothing, root through her jewelry and personal effects, and some have been caught stealing jewelry. One was there when she collapsed with another stroke, and instead of calling for help, she called her boyfriend and left, leaving her patient to manage on her own. I was impressed by the many many friends who came to offer condolences and said kind things about her. To go through life with so many people that call themselves your family around you is a tribute to the love that is shown and radiates from you. It runs M - F from 10am - Noon and starting on Monday July 22 will repeat from 4pm - 6pm each day. Some are acquaintances, some good acquaintances, others are friends and still others are good friends. I think I need to add a new one that shows love beyond that of the latter a€“ it is family. My opinions about Tiger Woods or any other issue are mine and I could give a damn about what Feinstein or anybody else things about them. In their prime at theA Washington Post, they were among the best sports writers in the country. Thought for the week:A  Happy Valentines Day !!!!!=============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 2-22-2010.
A I was up close and personal with the sports department.A Kindred and Chad were talented writers but you could not trust them, Cornheiser and Feintstein's talent, they easily blended in with the landscape of the paper.
A Feinstein called Wilbon the biggest ass kisser in sports media, if that is true he had great teacher in Cornheiser. A When Solomon tried to kick Cornheiser to the curve (fire him) in the 80s he was able to move to the Style section of the paper. A One black female Washington Post columnist wrote a book titled "Plantation on the Potomac." A She was describing her employer.
You see the fire trucks pull up and the fire men run from the trucks, get their ladders, hook up the hoses and then ------- sit down and take a coffee break. Your company is told that there is a mother and two children screaming for help from the third floor and they are close to being consumed by the flames. A Hopefully, they were asked to participate and were of the same mindset as Wilbon not comfortable with Mr. You and your men run over to see what instructions he has but he presents all of you with some Coffee and doughnuts. A Goodell makes more than any player in the NFL and he never has to make a tackle or catch a pass.A The owners recent pay out to the players for injuries suffered on their watch was peanuts compared to the billions they make year in and year out.
A When he refused a request by his mother to cease using the word and a similar plea by poet Myra Angelo. Martin Luther Kinga€™s 1963 march on Washington and 46 years since his assassination in Memphis, Tenn. All of us know of people, friends, and family that have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are not saved. They are like the family in the house.A  Because of pride, fear, or some other human emotion, we either do not share the Word with them or are not persistent with it to get them saved. The people we know then end up dying either naturally or prematurely in an accident and end up burning in the ever lasting flames of Hell. With the high-scoring Macauley, elite passer Cousy, and new prodigy Sharman, Auerbach had a core that provided high-octane fast-break basketball. In the next years until 1956, the Celtics would make the playoffs every year, but never won the title. Brown was desperate to turn around his struggling and financially strapped franchise, which was reeling from a 22a€“46 record.[5]A The still young but already seasoned Auerbach was made coach. 18-20: And Jesus came and said to them, a€?All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me. A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer.A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. A He was right on point.A To this day I think Magic had a previous discussion with the league office. There were actually two letters that I have combined and edited to eliminate the womana€™s identity.
It is offered here as another a€?building blocka€? about evangelizing and spreading Goda€™s will.
I agree that we are all called to share the gospel with others and that we often fall short of that. James Gholson, Red Auerbach, Biff Carter, Jessie Chase, Morgan Wooten, Everett Cookie Payne Sr., Frank Bolden, Dr. Leo Hill, Roper McNair, Earl Alfred, Maxwell Honemond, Tilman Sease, William Roundtree, Charlie Baltimore, Jaky Mathews, Ferdinand Day, Nick Turner, Walter Brooks, Ted McIntye, and my saviors, Dave Brown and Bighouse Gaines.A  They knew their Xs and Os, but more important, they were there for our highs and lows.A  Where have all those flowers gone? The Holy Spirit is the one who draws them, ("No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him" John 6:44) convicts them and makes them see that they are sinners. We never could have made it without them.I have given up on the Pigskin Club, but keeping hope alive for the DC Recreation Department and the Roving Leader Program.
People are drawn to God in us when they see something about us that they dona€™t have and they are made thirsty for.
BELL 12-25-1940---8-1-2013A A GOOD COP WHO BROKE THE CODE OF SILENCE IN THE WASHINGTON, DC POLICE DEPARTMENT.
A The real Serpico is seen leaving the Bronx Courthouse alone after testifying before the Knapp Commission on wide spread police corruption in the department. A In the old days police A would carry a "drop knife---an inexpensive weapon cops would bring along on patrol to drop onto or next to suspect that they had taken out so that they could say that he had threaten them.
A Today you don't even need to do that; all that you have to do is justify the use of deadly force if you are a police officer is to say that you feared for your life, for whatever reason.
If the victim dies, that just means there will one less witness around to contradict the test-lie.
A In the case of Officer Michael Slager of the North Charleston police, it appears he was being extra-carefulto cover his tracks. A Probably he could have gotten away with simply declaring, as he did in the radioed report, that Walter Scott "took my taser," and that would have probably have sufficed to exonerate him.
A But Slager having shot Scott eight times in the back--as everyone can see in the now famous video--perhaps felt that he needed a little help explaining what he was up to. A So apparently dropped his Taser next to Scott's body, which would obviously help to make the case that Scott "Took my taster."A If you think that what happen in North Charleston is a unique case, its not.
A Only recently, in another case, a policewoman in Pennsylvania first Tasered a black man then shot him twice in the back as he lay face down in the snow. But they all have heard the truth many times and they refuse to acknowledge that they are sinners in need of a rescue. My part is to pray for them, live my life for Jesus (let my light shine) and share the truths of the gospel when there is an opening to do so. A Unless honesty is rewarded more often then corruption, the police will lose credibility altogether.
It took many years, but I am at peace knowing that if they die without knowing Jesus therefore spending eternity in hell, that it was their choice. A I wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton in 1994 addressing this very issue, saying that honest cops have never been rewarded, and maybe there ought to be a medal for them, he wrote back but nothing change. A If enough testi-lying is uncovered, then who is going to believe the police even when they are telling the truth?
Another interesting fact is that we have different witnessing styles and people respond to different styles of witnessing.
A A Until now the shoot first fear of my life mantra has eliminated any cause for concern in the taking of life by police. But perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18) To love others more than yourself and to know that without Christ they will spend all eternity separated from Him.
A When a civilian committs a crime, every nuance is looked at, the better to "throw the book at" the suspect. When I go on mission trips, I pray for the hearts of the people that God is going to put onto my path and I pray that God would give me His eyes to see them as He sees them and His heart to love them as He loves them, and His words to speak to them. A The other day I got a letter from a journalist in Argentina who was complaining about police and judicial corruption there. A I wrote back to him, there are good cops, even where you live, but if the good cops don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as the bad cops, they need to come forward and expose the guys who are doing bad things.
A Take New York City detective who was caught on camera recently abusing an Uber driver with threats and foul language, A This was truly disgusting behavior.
Yet predictably enough the detective union leader, Michael Palladino, was out there making excuses for him, suggesting that, well, it was only one incident, and everyone has a bad day.
Although it is debated if they are actually God speaking, they are recognized by most as books that are still good to teach from. Still others like the book of Sirach which is used a lot by the Catholic church brings question into mind that it may have been eliminated by Martin Luther just as a statement to his rebellious nature within that church. A Afterward Police Commissioner William Bratton announced he was removing the detective's shield and placing him temporarily on desk duty while an investigation is conducted . He even wanted to eliminate other books including the book of Revelation but, as history records, -- cooler minds prevailed. A But this man needs to be demoted to uniform at the very least, or "back in the bag" as we use to say. A Imagine what he is capable of doing under the cover of darkness if he can talk to someone like that in broad daylight. A There are plenty legitimate incidents where police believe, correctly, that their lives are in danger. A I was in a few of those situations myself during the course of my career.A But unless the police forces and society as a whole take action we're not going to be able to distinguish between the legititimate claims and made-up testimony. A A long time ago Norman Rockwell painted a famous picture of a friendly neighborhood cop bending down to help a little boy.
A For example; I could name someone who is a great athlete but a lousy human being or I could name someone who is a great human being but not a great athlete.
A Heading the list is Muhammad Ali (The Greatest), Red Auerbach (NBA), Dave Bing (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL), Bert R. Sugar (Boxing), Lee Jones (NBA), Roy Jefferson (NFL) and Harold McLinton (NFL), finding pro athletes like them today are far, few and in-between.
A And that is a sad commentary when you think about the hundreds of men and women I have interviewed on Inside Sports and worked with as a youth advocate (Kids In Trouble). Moore, LB Dave Robinson (2013 NFL Hall of Fame inductee) and WR Roy Jefferson host KIT toy party. A Sam Jones (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL) and Roy Jefferson (NFL) participate in KIT clothing drive for needy children at Union Station. 60: Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in Him. A Bert Sugar (Boxing) receives KIT Life Time Achievement Award and Dave Bing (NBA) pays tribute to KIT Saturday Program All-Stars.I had the opportunity to hear an interview on Sirius A XM Radio (channel 126) on the Maggie Linton Show recently, her guest was NFL Washington Pro football player, wide receiver Peirre Garcon.
A I have not been very impressed with todaya€™s pro athletes and their give back commitment to their family, friends and community. A He has three older sisters making him the youngest and the only one born in the United States.His father died when he was 4 years old leaving his mother to raise him and his 3 sisters alone.
A My background is similar to Peirrea€™s, my mother had to raise 4 boys alone with an assist from Grandma Bell. Someone had a dream that as the soldier drew back to hit Christ that he grabbed the soldiers arm.
As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;Mark 16, vs. The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, a€?Pease be with youa€?.
A Jesus also appeared to 500 others, Saul (whom later became Paul), and to his disciples again when he rose up and ascended into Heaven. Since Biblical times the tradition that the Roman Emperor Domitian ordered that the Apostle John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil has been widely held.
