Re: “...and the Backstory (Cohen, Cybill Shepherd, and a Presidential Intercession)

It is Jr right to not introduce Cohen. After all, his "blood Brother" is running for the same office. Why should he introduce Cohn? I would think that would have been stupid for him to do so. He did the right thing.

Re: “POLITICS: Much Ado: The Back Story on Jake Ford

I appreciate your explanation. I feel that we need to be very careful how we "say or speak". We never know who will be offended. I read Cohen comments in the Commercial Appeal (10/15/2006. I cannot quote exactly what he said, therefore, I will not try this time. In all fairness to him, it related to "if a student could did not meet the requirement of college studies, the scholarships would not be used in a way that it was meant to be". This is not a quote. But I still have the paper. The Headline: " HOPE". In our district, that I live in, that is about 65 percent black or more, we need a "qualified" candidate to represent us. Mr. Herenton, often, state his unimportant views about the Fords. He was given a chance to study at the Rockfellow Center, (a young man at the time that came from the projects). As Mayor, I feel that he should show more intelligence. But there is an old saying: You can take someone out of the country and put that same someone in the city, but you cannot take the country out them. SO WHAT CAN I SAY? I EXPECT SUCH FROM HIM. I HAD HOPE THAT HE WOULD SHOW THAT HE COULD RISE ABOVE "FRAY" AND SHOW HIS INTELLIGENCE, BUT I SEE THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. It appears that he will never learn.
