Basketball Wives Lack Husband's and Virtue
In Proverbs 31: 10 -31 the perfect wife is defined as a virtuous woman with characteristics that are wholesome and pure. We are also told that when a man finds a wife he has found a great thing...well I guess the cast of VH1's Basketball Wives aren't familiar with these popular passages.
10 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. 11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. 12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
It's been a week since part two of the reality show Basketball Wives reunion aired, and I am still reeling after that profanity laced sparring match between Royce Reed-former Heat/Magic dancer, ex-girlfriend and baby mama of Magic Center, Dwight Howard (did I just write baby mama...;); and Evelyn Lazado, the ex-fiancÚ of former NBA Forward, Antoine Walker, and current fiancÚ of NFL Wide Receiver, Chad (Johnson) Ochocinco. This season's reunion was hosted by former NBA star, John Salley, who actually out-instigated Bravo's notorious Andy Cohen. Click here to read more..
First Annual James Weldon Johnson Festival
I participated in the 1st Annual James Weldon Johnson Festival, on March 26th, in my hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida. No other words can describe the day, other than it was simply beautiful. The festival was held on the grounds of the James Weldon Johnson Public Library, located on 18th Avenue S, west of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Street. The weather was perfect and the atmosphere was reminiscent of an old summertime portrait. The well-kept grounds with their huge shade trees provided adequate cover for the various vendors, speakers, and other presentations that Kevin Johnson and the Friends of the Johnson Branch Library, worked so hard and diligently to bring together?not only for the community the library serves, but for the entire city.

Tallahassee Authors Network (TAN) at Florida Capitol
Everyday we should challenge ourselves to experience something new. A lot of times people think, new, means out of the ordinary, like bungee-jumping, or traveling to a foreign country. But the truth is something new can be right in our backyard. I have lived in Florida all of my life. My summers, until the age of about fifteen, were spent on Miccosukee Road, In Tallahassee, home of our State Capitol. Yet, my very first visit to the capitol, took place March 24th, when I joined members of Tallahassee Authors Network (TAN), for a showcase during the 2011 Florida Conference of Black State Legislators. The invitation was extended by Representative, Alan B. Williams, District 8 - Tallahassee. Click here to read more...
