Could you make the plug for Chattz ANY more obvious? I take it they push you a free cup now and then? Another superior mark on your Journalism report card. First the sensitive gang-banger plea... now you're writing columns for coffee.
Mr Cook, you have been had. I have spoke to Josh on many occasions and can tell you those eyes have no kindness or weight. Just contempt and selfishness. He is out for HIS needs and no other. Let's look at his record, shall we? Robbery, trespass, resisting arrest, selling drugs. He sits in his girlfriend's apartment all day while I can see 3 or 4 help wanted signs within 2 miles. Those gang tattoos on his face?.. he did it only 3 months ago. Hardly a guy "looking to get out" huh? I would love to help him get a job and straighten up, he however needs to -WANT- to do that. At this time of his life that is NOT something he wants to do. Who could blame him?.. his girlfriend's apartment is in the projects and they pay $50/month in rent. You and I pay the rest in taxes. Why shouldn't he sell drugs?.. It is easy and you don't even break a sweat. (unless you have to run from the cops). It is the PIMP life for him and if he were to answer honestly, we would be the suckers in this fairy-tale of yours.
But hey, it makes for a great story.. Congrats on pleasing your editor and selling ad space.
Clay is a moron. HIS OWN PRESIDENT was anti-gay marriage just a few months ago..
and he only switched for the election!
Now. Why is it that we get to comment on this story and not others.? does the TFP deliberately choose which stories they feel will generate comments which align with their agenda?. Is this a "safe" story?
You're a Christian missionary, who owns a club. period. Just becuase you have a good purpose, does not mean you get to do whatever you want.
Gift certificate to get their clubs re-gripped.
I bet the mayor is too. 11% seems kinda high.

Bah.. you get what you ask for.
ooohh let the kiddies play. Pretty soon it will be in the low 20's and they will move on to "occupy warmth" - By spring they will have moved on to protesting McDonald's getting rid of the McRib again.
This is better than their big-city counterparts who throw feces, blood and urine on people. Vandalize small businesses in the area, knock police off their motorcycles, and finally taking dumps on police cars. This is what they apparently stand for. Chaos.
(to the hipster who will deny all those things took place; I can provide news links so don't bother embarrassing yourself.)
