Will the real Rev. Sharpton please stand up? Seems a few years back ole Al turned a landlord-tenant dispute between the Jewish owner of Freddy’s and a black subtenant into a theater of hatred. Picketers from Mr. Sharpton’s National Action Network, sometimes joined by “the Rev.” himself, marched daily outside the store, screaming about “bloodsucking Jews” and “Jew bastards” and threatening to burn the building down.
After weeks of increasingly violent rhetoric, one of the protesters, Roland Smith, took Mr. Sharpton’s words about ousting the “white interloper” to heart. He ran into the store shouting, “It’s on!” He shot and wounded three whites and a Pakistani, whom he apparently mistook for a Jew. Then he set the fire, which killed five Hispanics, one Guyanese and one African-American–a security guard whom protesters had taunted as a “cracker lover.” Smith then fatally shot himself.
Who's the nappy headed hoe now?

The sombre appearing trio of Santita Jackson flanked by father Jesse, oops the Reverand Jesse Jackson, and the Reverand Al not so Sharpton. Upon learning that Jesse and Al's bid to join in holy matrimony was turned down, leaving Santita as a one parent child.
We do remember why she is a one parent child.
So, what has the Army been up to you ask?
Washington, D.C. (AHN) - Up to 15,000 U.S. troops serving in Iraq could have their tours of duty extended under a plan being considered by the Defense Department, according to a Pentagon official.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press that the plan is among several options being considered to maintain troop levels in Iraq until the fall.
The official said that Gen. David Petraeus, U.S. commander in Iraq, has been seeking ways to maintain the troop increase ordered earlier this year by President Bush, which Petraeus believes has helped stem violence in Iraq.

Under the proposed plan, five active duty brigades - four ground units and one aviation combat brigade totaling roughly 15,000 troops - would have their duty extended a maximum of 120 days, the official said. The troops are currently scheduled to return home in the next few months.
The plan would have to be approved by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
I'd say the plan is just what the doctor ordered.
