“Are You In?”  as a 2012 slogan?

The first thing I thought of was him being asked that by some chick (I’m not going there, sorry) in the middle of fooling around in the backseat of a car.

This screams for a bumper sticker graphic but I’m thinking Stoaty (Weasel, as in sweasel.com) will be all over this like a deranged slinky.



First you are part of a huge mishandled case where you accuse a three sports players of rape, it goes nonlinear as everyone jumps on the bandwagon to accuse some nasty rich little white boys, and that gets thrown out after ruining their lives.

A year later, Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped all charges saying there was no credible evidence and that the three former players were victims of a tragic rush to accuse.

Former D.A. Mike Nifong was later disbarred and was accused of withholding DNA evidence that would have cleared the players.

Ok, well, an apologist might still say justice might not have been served because there is the vanishingly small but finite possibility that someone actually did do something.  However much it would stretch the bounds of reason.

Then, you are later arrested and charged with attempted murder, arson, and child abuse after a domestic dispute with a boyfriend.  Guilty of child abuse but they couldn’t prove arson.

Then this weekend you are arrested  for multiple stabbings of a different boyfriend leading to his hospitalization in serious condition.

And now, all that blended in with the degree you got in police psychology from NCCU in 2008 kind of makes you and everyone who has ever come into contact with you look like a bunch of schmucks.  And the gal standing up next to you as bail was assessed, Jackie Wagstaff – the former Durham school board member who has a history of supporting you – gosh, she looks even stupider than ever.  You are known by the company you keep.

What am I trying to say?  I’m rambling but I guess if there was a point, it would be that after a while, all the little stinky bits and blots of nasty grime add up, and when you step back a bit look at it from a bit more distance the pattern of a trash heap begins to resolve – mostly because you just fell off the mound of garbage you were standing on.
