In other words, it’s blighted. The land that was this great “Aviation Gateway to the Pacific” supports some of the largest buildings...

Now, I’ve got over 3,000 Facebook friends, 7,000 Twitter followers, almost 4,000 YouTube subscribers, and am on 34 social networks and have a network of over 90 blogs....

As I’ve stated this has less to do with any “boss – aide” relationship, as those who point such fingers seem bent on painting the woman as not having a mind of her own. There was...

Frankly, I expected he and agent Eugene Parker to avoid the purgatory to come if Crabtree skipped out on the Niners and sign what turned out to be a nice six-year, $32 million deal with a $17 million signing bonus. What I didn’t expect was that Crabtree’s signing would be overshadowed by Irving Penn on Twitter’s...

But then I realized why should it be removed? I don’t recall anyone saying Stephanie...

Tweet More at Zennie62.com | Follow me on Twitter! | Get my widget! | Visit YouTube | Visit UShow.com According to the New York Post today, David Letterman‘s girlfriend and staffer Stephanie Birkitt intentionally cheated on her live-in boyfriend CBS Producer Robert “Joe” Halderman with Letterman after she moved in with him. This is further proof of just how rampant cheating is in our hedonistic society, and that it’s equally wrong for people who have done this to try and fry Letterman rather than say...

As I stated in my video, Letterman’s the real victim here in the way he was “outed”: The sad fact is a lot of people are doing...

I created this vlog because I’d not talked about either David Letterman, Stephanie Birkitt, or Roman Polanski, and while some took those people and topics and split into conservative and liberal camps, to me, that’s not the place for this. Republicans corner the market in political sex scandals, so there’s nothing to talk about. Let me...

Now Stafford was selected by the Detroit Lions as the first pick in the 1st round and at the top of many draft charts; Sanchez was projected by some to go as low as the 2nd round of the draft but he was chosen in the 1st round as the fifth pick by the New York Jets. Here’s my interviews with both Mark...
