No matter how you look at it, Michael Wilbon needs to STFU.
McLean, Va.: Will your opinion of Taylor change if this does not turn out to be a random incident (e.g. home invasion)?
Michael Wilbon: No … people’s opinions are shaped by the way they’ve grown up, the way they see the world, what they know about the world the person in question grew up in, etc. Sean Taylor isn’t the only guy I know who fits his general profile. I’ve known guys like Taylor all my life, grew up with some. They still have shades of gray and shouldn’t be painted in black and white…I know how I feel about Taylor, and this latest news isn’t surprising in the least, not to me. Whether this incident is or isn’t random, Taylor grew up in a violent world, embraced it, claimed it, loved to run in it and refused to divorce himself from it. He ain’t the first and won’t be the last. We have no idea what happened, or if what we know now will be revised later. It’s sad, yes, but hardly surprising.

Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died early Tuesday, a day after the Pro Bowl player was shot at home by what police say was an intruder. He was 24.
Homeboy was younger than me. Way too young to die, esp. like that. Rip 21.
More power to him! I guess being crazy does keep you crazy-thin.
Well, I thought I was “cool” with Braylon’s girlfriend…
Laugh this is pretty funny. I just had a long chat with her, and I even asked her if I could interview Braylon (such a request I’d like to think would be seen as a compliment). Yet she went off on a cunty-tangent. I was about to paste in the whole chat log, but my fucking Adium just crashed… she was def. lunching though. She said why don’t I go try interviewing Sean Taylor instead. I sort of missed the humor on that one. Anyways whatever fuck her. He prolly dropped her ass anyways, that’s why she was in a big huff over it.
My prayers go out to the Taylor’s -hope Sean pulls through.
Sometimes others take the words right out of your mouth, so I am going to let “D from NYC” do his thing. In reference to a new lounge in D.C. (PARK Lounge on 14th street). I haven’t been, so I can’t hate first hand. 2nd hand though, is another story:
The establishment was very elegant and promising. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the clientele. Everyone was acting like they had something up their behind while wearing uncomfortable shoes and clothing. Every face looked the same from 1)the excessive make up and 2)the misery that there was someone there probably skinner than them. There seem to be crowds of people having a conversation but laughter and smiles were usually not part of it. God forbid anyone would dance. Just a fat wallet and an expensive pair of shoes will not make a party fun…a un-fake personality…ah that just might.
Fun: 1, Service: 5, Patrons: 0, Crowded: 10, Value: 5
