Tampa, FL – Honk If I Need Education: A Tampa mother is defending her decision to stick her teenage son on a street corner with a sign that says, among other things, “GPA 1.22 … honk if I need education.”
Ronda Holder says she and the boy’s father have tried everything to get their 15-year-old to shape up academically. They’ve offered help, asked to see homework, grounded, lectured him and confiscated his cell phone. James Mond III’s indifference at a school meeting last week was the final straw. The next day, Holder made the sign and made her son wear it for nearly four hours.
Holder insists she’s fighting for her child’s education.
Basket Ball Wife Canned: Dwight Howard and his camp can silently breathe a sigh of relief. The mother of his young son, Royce Reed, is likely being replaced on VH1’s popular reality show Basketball Wives.
Shaunie O’Neal, who is the executive producer of Basketball Wives, recently told the Los Angeles Times Royce Reed has almost “no connection” to the show anymore due to her legal issues with Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard. Royce Reed is banned from mentioning Dwight Howard’s name on the show.
Snow Ice Flakes and Flavor Flav:
This cabin fever thing can do so many things to the mind, especially when everything on TV is about carnage. Sure, it’s sad that the Congresswoman was shot in the head by a raving lunatic who everyone but the psyche ward knew.
And the two exploding BMW’s, within six miles of each other seemed like some sort of foreshadowing of Julian Assange’s fear of ‘illegal rendition’ to the US. Turns out he has nightmares about Gitmo and drinking too much water at one time.
Too much sordid serious stuff, with every other channel featuring an Elmer Gantry with an answer to the plunging birds and drowning fish and submerging metropolises around the globe – End Times.
The lesson, though, was that the channels that cable companies make mandatory, like MTV and VH1 actually serve a purpose.
With reruns of Flavor Flav and his unambitious harem, the androgenous Bridgitte Neilson complete with the sum of her remanufactured parts and base females like Delicious and New York, who cares about a little cabin fever?
