I want to use this space... 

...to call bullshit on Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. A rap related shooting last night in New York one day before 50's new album drops? Dr. Dre has a history (going back to the early 90s) of using these public feuds to sell records--they've just just escalated from accusations of child molestation to shootings.

Why am I so sure? According to the Daily News, "Reed was hit in the buttocks and left bleeding on the snow-covered street while everyone else scattered - and 50 Cent cut his interview short." And the Times says he was shot with a ".25-caliber pistol". What self-respecing rapper would let someone who carries a .25 in his entourage? I think Dre wanted a shooting to help album sales and the man who drew the shortest straw got shot in the ass.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
