It is good to keep abreast of what's going on in the rest of the world. Just when you thought these kind of images were obsolete. much for that thought,at least in this part of the world.

What next? Whatever it is I'll do my best to keep you informed. I sense a 'reflection for the day' topic brewing. Maybe I'll tie it in to the symbolic funeral the NAACP recently held for the N word.

Michael Vick ,while I've never met you I feel in some measure I already know you. You are the "brother" from the neighborhood that everyone was rooting for to make it because of your sports acumen and physical prowess. My brother was a star college and high school football player,so I have first-hand experience on the matter.To some from the hood and in the public housing project where you grew up,getting the opportunity to play professional sports was and still is to a degree,seen as a ticket out of the "land of dead end", leading fast to nowhere productive.

I hope during this very challenging time of upheaval in your personal and professional life,you will take much needed time out to search your soul for the things you truly value in life. I hope that you…
