Hi There good friends,
Its me Eric again and this time with a journal much earlier than usual. well within the last week a lot of things have happen and I just want to touch bases on all of them so here I go. First last weekend we lost another Comedy icon in the Legendary Joan Rivers whose great career in show business lasted a unbelievable 50 years and her unique style of both making both rauchy and clean comedy was indeed one of a kind In fact she was the very first woman to make dirty comedy like the men and never affaid to go after and make fun of other people and herself as well. She's right up there with Lucille Ball, Phyllis Diller, Gracie Allen, Carol Burnett, Moms Mabley and Lily Tomlin as one of the legendary queens of comedy and helped pave the way for the ones that followed her like Rosanne Barr, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Stykes, Mo'nique, Ellen Degenesis and many others,
We all remember her most as being the permanant guest host of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and her trademark catch phrase"Can we Talk?" even though she never got the part to replace Johnny and her own late night show on FOX Bombed after that, she continued to be a force on the scene and always thank mr.Carson for her big break on the national screen. She was laid to rest last sunday and with both her and Robin Williams passed away last month the world's a lot quieter place without those two comic genuses. Rest in Place Ms. Rivers hope that you and Johnny and Ed Mcmahon patched things up a have a few laughes.
Second, Well Yesterday as all of you heard that Former Football Star and Super Bowl Hero Ray Rice was not only Released by his team Baltimore but also Suspended from the NFL for domestic Violence against his then Girlfriend now wife in a elevator in Atlantic City earlier this year. The incident was indeed taped entirely by TMZ
showing the horrorfic scene in black and white and the damage has been done. Its the second time this year that TMZ busted a famous sports figure first it was Donald Sterling getting banned from the NBA for life after his racist charged words in a interview caught on audio tape back in the Spring and now this. Look I'm a proud sports fan that loves and roots for all his hometown towns to win and do well but It is never right to hit nor cuss out a woman in anycase, I love my mama, all of my aunties from out of town, My Godmother from Virginia and of course my Lady friend Michele from around the block and trust me I will never, ever hit them nor cuss them out as well. I would be embarassed and apauled if Rice were playing on my team. yes He's a great talent and may God bless him and his family in helpiong them turn their lives around but there's no place in society for this kind of mess and NFL Football Comissioner Roger Goodell and the Baltimore Football Orgainization should be ashamed of themselves as well for the way that they handled this problem.
Well, this week is the Thirteenth annversary of the Tragic day that changed America and the entire world forever that 9/11 and that's a day that no one will ever forget because we all thought that we we were living in the most powerful City in the World and that no terrorist act will happen here but it did with not only the terrorist hijaking the planes and crashing them into the World trade towers in New York City taking the passengers lives and their own as well and seeing those people jumping from the crashing towers into their deaths was indeed sad
because they know that they will going to die on that day. New York wasn't the only city that was attacked on thay day they were an plane crash in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and of Course My hometown of Washington DC in which the terriotsts tried to crash one of the planes to the White House but it ended up hitting the Pentagon instead. Lots of lives were lost on that day and it was sad But i'm proud to say that We have gotten back up from that tragedy and the Country is as strong as ever, like my Church minister says 'don't the Devil get his joy out of all of this!" Keep your faith in God and her will handle it!
Well that's all I have to say for now, thank you all once again for the llama badges, the great comments and a few more DEV WATCHES as well. I'll be back next time with a more lighthearted Journal to end the month of September and here's another poem for you to enjoy this time in spirit of america as well approach 9/11
As we see old glory flying high in the blue sky
She has so many stories that will one want to cry
We sing its praises knowing that it will stay with us until the very end
As we as country continue together to rise and stand
Each colorful stripe had something to say
for all the things that we do each and everyday
if the red stripes could speak it will tell us that they represent all our blood being shed
white would say that they fight for freedom so that a child can play and sleep peacefully when in bed
the blue would say that for peace, justice and the american way and continue to fight the good fight to have even brighter days ahead
Our colors don't run from nobody and freedom always comes with a price
we should know about our forefathers and ancestors fought for out country and went out in history and we not think twice
Because this is a symbol for all people of colors, races, religions a great flag that stands for our proud history
That's our Flag that we call Old glory
until next time,America!
Eric Isaac, Washington D,C.
