“Mind Your Own Business”

(REPOSTED AS A COURTESY AND IN SUPPORT OF THIS EFFORT BY ANEMIC ROYALTY, GOOD LUCK, AND THANK YOU, – OuteasY)

Have you seen this? Unbelievable! PETA, The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has jumped on the “Bash Britney Spears” wagon and is calling for estranged husband, Kevin Federline to petition the California Family Court for him to take custody of Britney’s Yorkshire Terrier; “London.” Listen, nobody is a bigger animal fan than me, and most particularly with dogs, but this is way over the top! It is totally inexcusable for PETA to glum onto the publicity of two dubious Hollywood “stars” in the midst of obvious personal strife to advance an agenda beyond the non-profit’s recognized Mission Statement. If PETA really cares about the welfare of London, and if concern is warranted, tact and existing law is the due course of action, well known to PETA, and not a shameful and scandalous “blast fax” around the universe via the Internet. I am truly ashamed of my past dealings with PETA, and urge all to read and sign, if you will, my petition titled and located here: “PETA, Mind Your Own Business.”

I am no big Britney Spears or Kevin Federline fan, but I believe there is far too much intrusion to our personal lives of late, and surely PETA is loose from the belfry in this regard. Grow up, PETA, and get a life.

Watch Neil Cavuto and MeMe Roth of the National Action Against Obesity committee argue that Blake Lewis should win because he’s thinner. or, maybe, less prone to heart disease and diabetes.

FALSE IDOLS? AMERICAN TRAGEDY?

Bill O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera (Click to Enlarge)

Sure, I like a good fight, but when I’m ready for one, I look for the Smackdown channel. A shouting match isn’t exactly a fight, particularly when it looks as rehearsed as a ‘Boogeyman’ vs. ‘Undertaker’ bout. The precipitant behind these two ‘newsheads,’ is that neither one wil stop blabbing long enough to figure out exactly what it is they are supposed to be blabbing about. Geraldo leads off with thoughts about a drunk driver and O’Reilly deciphers the story as an illegal immigration cue. And, whenever one of their ‘debates’ occurs, be assured you will see it over and over until it’s time for the next one. I’m convinced the network execs are thouroughly confused when it comes to what we want to see and hear, and when it’s time (it’s time) for Bill and Geraldo to go, ABC just released the perfect replacement. How great is it that an anchor sleeps through segments we don’t want to see, or decides quite rightly to show up twenty minutes after the news has started realizing nobody is watching anyhow? Please consider my new screensaver; Steve Bartlestein, ‘snewsman’ extraordinaire:

bartlestein_anemi.jpg

Steve Bartelstein has run out of second chances at WABC/Ch. 7.

The anchor, who has messed up several times on the job only to get another shot, was fired after sleeping through a newsbreak he was to anchor last Thursday morning on the horrific Bronx house fire. He was in his Ch. 7 office at the time.

“He is no longer with the station, and no longer with ‘Eyewitness News,'” a station spokesman said yesterday.

It was a stunning move, considering that Bartelstein has been a major player on the station’s top-rated early-morning newscast alongside Lori Stokes and weathercaster Bill Evans.

Joe Torres was in the seat yesterday, and the station is expected to rotate others on its anchor staff in the slot.

News director Kenny Plotnik told staffers of the change yesterday in a morning meeting. He also said there would be a thorough search for a replacement.

Plotnik referred calls to a station spokesman. Bartelstein couldn’t be reached for comment.

One indiscretion on Bartelstein’s part might have been overlooked, but there were others. In November, he was suspended for several days after showing up for work 20 minutes after the morning news began.

A year before that, Bartelstein was sidelined for two weeks after showing up late for work and for missing a newsbreak, reportedly so that he could meet Samuel L. Jackson, who was appearing on “Live With Regis & Kelly.”

And there was an ugly sexual-harassment suit that was withdrawn.

Despite the issues, management gave Bartelstein a new contract last June that spelled out the consequences if he slipped up again.

Station insiders said Bartelstein’s latest goof put Plotnik and general manager Dave Davis in a tough spot. Giving him another chance would have made it look like there was a double standard at the station.

Still, the firing is troubling for many at Ch. 7 – one labeled it a “bombshell” – because outside of a proclivity for missing deadlines, Bartelstein was generally well liked.

Moreover, insiders agree that on the air, Stokes, Bartelstein and Evans had great chemistry.

It is that chemistry, their ability to juggle seriousness and banter each day, that has made the show the most-watched local program in the morning.

Said one insider: “It’s not going to be the same without him.”

A NAPPY HAIR AFFAIR

quarrel.jpg

nappy.gifNappyHair

Is this even possible? I was told that with 99.9999% certainty that it would be OK for me to return to my television today, as little Dannielynn finally found the milestone she’s been crawling toward throughout her long and ill-rewarded life of almost seven months. Good for you, Dannielynn, and we’ll keep rooting for you, as, with God’s Grace, there will be plenty more, though hopes for more pleasure.

But, back to my television, my turn, almost. You see, evenings are usually TV time for me, a happy time to kick back and veg for a while, right after I’ve fed the dog, which used to be a happy time for him as well. Dogs are funny about certain sounds like the noise of the UPS truck or the difference between the front and rear door bells. My dog knows it’s time for dinner when he hears the “grrr” of the kitchen can opener. Once appreciative of the signal, thanks to recent poisonings of his buds as seen on TV, I can pretty much count on him running from the house and taking his meals where I’m not sure. He’ll come back.

Anyhow, lucky Larry wins Survivor, is to be united with Dannielynn, and was last sighted in a hurry to leave the Bahamas to get back to California to buy some baby stuff. Dood, believe me, you have time, and were I you, I’d be thinking First Grade. So, in anticipation of hearing the PS guy say, “we now return you to..,” that’s right, the “Nappy Headed ‘HOS'” thing crept in. Since Don Imus has offended enough and now owns that line, I’m going with “Naphar-Gate.” If you are a Sci-Fi fan, you’ll remember the 1984 novel with the title; Quarreling, They Met The Dragon, by Sharon Baker, part one of her trilogy. Sharon’s not with us anymore, so posthumous apologies, but I recall the story is set on the planet Naphar and the young people are raised as slaves to be sacrificed – eaten, and one slave-boy, naive with “golden-curly” hair is tricked by the wise Scribe, and his struggle for survival and the fight for his peers, is the focus of the tale. Far-fetched plot, but this is only Sci-Fi. You have to wait a while, and don’t get to know the outcome until book three.

Now, if you were alive 142 years ago, this week, you would recall that the Civil War for some, or the War Between the States for others, ended with General Lee signing surrender to General Grant in 1865 at Appomattox, which is in Virginia, not North Carolina, as was reported by CNN’s Shepard Smith. No worries, Shepard, hey, you get an ‘A’ for reporting while your peers did not. (It was so long ago) Some will say the War didn’t end until the following May, and while there was some “clean-up” fighting, signing a surrender is good enough for me. This week in history, Grant and Lee spent most of their time bantering pros and cons, right and wrong among each other. Their letters are a great study in Blind Man’s Bluff. (Sounds familiar today) Good and bad came out of that war, but to me, the best, although a long time in the making, was the Thirteenth Amendment to our Constitution; The Abolition of Slavery. Want to guess what prevails, finally, in Sharon’s story?

So here we are, stuck in “Naphar-Gate.” Don Imus made an off-color remark, realized it, and apologized. He sounds sincere to me. This does not appear satisfactory to Rev. Al Sharpton, and the shift goes strangely stage right, to The First Amendment; mostly Freedom of Speech, as it pertains to “Federally regulated air-waves.” I agree with Don – what he said was wrong. Don’s said a bunch I’m sure he regrets, and I’m reminded of a few; Maya Angelou, Robert Frank, Gwen Hill, and most of the Arab world. But Al, you’re no stranger to “hoof-in-mouth,” and I recall the little Tawana Brawley thing, the Crown Heights Riots, and the LoanMax scam. Not one of either hot potato in this paragraph is a Freedom of Speech issue.

But then, neither is “Naphar-Gate.” OK, if Don’s statements were perceived as “racial,” well, your call, that is your protected right, but I’m not buying Don’s ill-formed words and metathesis as intent. There is a minute minority of fringe out there that would like to see us return to pre-Thirteenth Amendment days, but come on; Don Imus? If you haven’t read Sharon’s above books, I’ll tell you the kids did triumph over oppression, notwithstanding the Scribe’s attempts to lure them back in, as “a good thing,” That would indeed be a Thirteenth Amendment problem, but not the First. Conversely, the kids in the book weren’t running around goading for a little oppression to charge the scene, and I do not believe the young ladies on the Rutger’s team are either. We all have better opportunities. Far-fetched, perhaps, but it is indeed the other side of the discussion, and part of the book. You see, the book children were “raised” as slaves. I believe Vivian Stringer, the eloquent Rutgers Coach got it right in saying, “It’s not about black people, white people, purple people or nappy hair, it’s about us, as a people.” Yeah, we could all stand a good dose of civility from time to time.

You know, a lot of us are happy with what we are. You may not know this, but there is a Yahoo Discussion Group, of which I am a member, and goes by the name “Nappy Hair -A NappyHair Affair.” The group is in the Afro-Caribbean Category to Health, was founded November 1, 2001, and to date, totals 4,074 members, who exchange ideas, fellowship, links, break bread, and make money together. The group describes itself as;

“Taking the negativity out of nappy and celebrating our natural selves! A Nappy Hair Affair is an organization that celebrates the unique qualities and characteristics of people of African descent. We promote a positive image and self concept through support, affirmation and education. We are the voice of support for those contemplating crossing over to the natural path and for those who have already arrived.”

To the best of my knowledge, the group welcomes all, and no one has hit me up for dues. Interestingly, there is only one comment posted to the group stating negativity over the Imus affair and calling for his “head,” a “petition” written by the leader of the Civil Liberties Group at About.Com, which I note is an interest of The New York Times Company. I do not know if the writer is a member of a NappyHair, and frankly, do not care.

The Return of ‘If I Did It’

The family of Ron Goldman now says it wants O.J. Simpson’s book published. What changed their minds?

O.J. Simpson’s “tell-all book “If I Did It” will likely be published after all—with the help of, get this; murder victim Ronald L. Goldman’s family. A California court ruled that proceeds from the auction of the book rights would go to the Goldman family, not Simpson. Simpson was found liable in 1997 for the wrongful deaths of Goldman and O.J.’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, which occured on June 12, 1994. Simpson has paid almost nothing of the $33.5 million judgment (now, with interest, grown to $38 million) he owes to the Goldman and Brown families.
