VP Joe Biden advises Americans not to fly

At this moment the White House is holding a live press conference to explain the remarks that Vice President Joe Biden made this morning on the Today Show. He basically advised that Americans would be wise to avoid being enclosed in a pressurized cabin like an airplane with infected people coughing and sneezing around you.

That makes sense.

As you can imagine, the airlines and the travel association folks are baring their fangs at Biden and demanding some kind of retraction. They don’t want you to stop flying because obviously their major concern is stockpiling as much cash as they can until their passengers literally start dropping like flies on their planes.

Ezra Klein of The American Prospect writes:

But here’s the thing: Biden may be right to induce a bit of panic. The United States Travel Association won’t think so. It’s their profit stream on the line, after all. But epidemiologists are probably quietly relieved by the Vice President’s comments. … The absolute best case is that Joe Biden did something that’s so effective that he looks really stupid.

Click here to see who Justin is.

Ladies, I Luv u, but please don’t start sending me videos of your kids. I’m just posting this video because my loyal reader’s son is really good and deserves to be heard.

Heyyy Sandra,
I absolutely love your site, I have to have it everyday like a cup of coffee, Lol. I don’t know how I missed registration, but don’t twist it.

Anyways, I think my 16 yr old Carnell is just as good as this Justin Kid, can you post and compare? Carnell’s been performing around Atlanta for a long time, I guess it’s just who you know.

Sandra Please, Please Open Registration…Please.
I’ll keep enjoying the site anyways until you do:) And give “Obessed” a chance, it’s really good. You’re so funny.

I just wanted to add even though Carnell enjoys singing Chris Brown Songs, he treats girls very well. He has 3 sisters, and knows better!

Enjoy your day,
LB




 

FanMAIL: Guess Who?

This email was sent to me by a very credible source who is very well connected within the industry. She has provided us with solid scoops in the past. Still, you have to take information like this with a grain of salt.

A loyal reader wrote:

Ok its confirmed ________ is part of the booty tooty club. So I’m having lunch with my “sister” Todd** today and I was trying to get his advice on this new guy I met on Wall Street, and he just keeps on texting being rude on his blackberry and I’m like ‘give me this phone, boy its girl time nobody comes between our every Thursday lunch. This is our time to talk about any and everything.’ And I look on his blackberry and gurrrrrl guess who he is having conversations with? Yep Ms. _________ herself and guess what? He was telling Todd about his “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” movie that is suppose to come out September 11th, 2009 that stars him, Taraji, Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight, Marvin Winans and fellow batty boy _____________. And telling him he will “let him know about the opening in Atlanta” if he is interested in attending. Guurl I had no words when he got up from the table to use the rest room I copied that shit and forwarded it to my phone. I found it very suspicious he invited Todd to the Atalanta opening and not the New York one when he knows Todd lives in New York.

And its obvious __________ has to know my friend Todd is gay cause when we are out he is very flamboyant. And then _________ is in a Tyler Perry movie? oh noooo? I’mma keep my eyes on this because my friend Todd’s been acting very distant lately and he always gets like this when a new man comes around. And I know he doesn’t want to tell me about this ________ situation because he tells me everything and probably doesn’t want to OUT _________ to me because he knows I will tell all my girls to keep an eye out for __________ cause he likes boys and DL guys disgust me. But I will keep you posted!

Thank you for your responses to the “nappy-headed black women being overweight” email yesterday

Yesterday I posted an email from GregW, a loyal reader, who some of you thought was a bitter LSLH chick. You can read GregW’s email here. I received many responses to GregW’s email as this must be a hot topic with some of you, or maybe he pushed the right buttons?

Anyway, there is no way I can post the responses because I just don’t have the time. But as a gesture of thanks for your support I will allow those of you who took the time to email me those (long) thoughtful responses to register on my blog. That offer is only extended to those who emailed me yesterday.




 

Sean Hannity Offers Obama Photoshop Tips

We still don’t know exactly what Barack Obama’s Air Force One Boeing 747 jet was doing in the skies above manhattan on Monday — but you can be sure the conspiracy theorists will soon enlighten us all with an illogical answer.

The first official response from the White House was that Obama’s jet buzzed lower Manhattan – sending terrified residents running for their lives — just so the air force could update Air Force One’s file photo. Then they realized how asinine that sounded so they switched to official response #2 by declaring the matter classified.

I told you in an earlier post that Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteran suggested that the next time the air force decides to waste $300,000 in taxpayer’s money updating Air Force One’s file photos, they should use Photoshop instead.

Fox News Channel co-host Sean Hannity took the suggestion one step further by doing just that. I laughed my azz off when I saw these photos last night!

“Obsessed” star Idris Elba was spotted outside London Studio in the UK yesterday. I’m going to see “Obsessed” this weekend — only because he’s in it. This will be the first Beyonce movie that I sit through and watch in its entirety. I hope I have the strength to endure it.

Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs, left, and First Lady Michelle Obama’s favorite designer Tracy Reese attended the 2009 Parsons Fashion benefit at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC yesterday. Isn’t she purrty? I mean Tracy, not Marc.

Fellow socialites and tv personalities Kelly Osbourne, left, and Kim Kardashian got their skate on at the Pepsi Throwback launch party at World on Wheels in L.A. yesterday.

They say Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian, left, is getting her own reality show, and she’s already acting like a diva. I believe it. I wonder if her good friend Young Jeezy will make a cameo appearance?

Celebs Out & About

Singer Ashanti posed with director Benny Boom at the L.A. screening of “Next Day Air” yesterday.

Ashanti gets an ‘F’ for those torn Dirty Couture jeans. As the kids would say, “No ma’am!” It’s funny because every time I strike up a conversation with someone about what’s wrong with the music industry, Ashanti’s name always comes up — along with Beyonce’s, of course.

Eva Pigford attended the “Next Day Air” L.A. premiere with her fiance Lance Gross wearing Dirty Couture jeans first popularized by Zoe Kravitz. Let’s hope that Dirty Couture style isn’t catching on with the sistas because everybody can’t wear that look and make it work.

Speaking of dirty, did you know Lance Gross was a ghetto thug? He’s on Twitter every day doing a lot of trash talking. At first I didn’t believe it was really him because he comes off as a refined, respectable sort of guy. But, as you know, looks can be deceiving.

Embattled NBA star Derek Fisher of the LA Lakers and his wife Candace Fisher also attended the “Next Day Air” premiere. As you know, Derek is having some personal problems with a stray side piece who won’t stay in her lane. He was forced to take out a restraining order on her rather than let his wife handle the situation.

Actress (?) Vida Guerra attended the “Next Day Air” premiere. Chicks need to stop turning around just because the photographers ask them to. Use your better judgment ladies. If you know you’re not working with anything back there, spare yourself the embarrassment and don’t turn around.

Actor Wood Harris also attended the premiere with a LSLH guest (it figures). Some of you may recall him from “The Wire”. I can’t believe chicks find him sexy, but whatever.
