The blog will be back to normal soon. Here's a few stories that might interest you.
Father pays overpaying outstanding child support, gets jail time [FoxHouston] - Read this one fully before commenting, please.

Swearing toddler in 'thug' video taken into protective custody [CNN] - I'll reserve judgement on this one for now.

Federal auditors launch inquiry into $23M Christie-approved ad contract [WashPost] - I thought Christie's presser last week was terribly defensive and deflected any personal responsibility. That said, from a damage control standpoint, it was spot on. It addressed the story and changed the narrative, even if only momentarily. For Big C.H.R.I.S. to emphatically say he had nothing to do with this was a ballsy statement that will deep six his career should the ongoing investigation prove otherwise.

'12 Years A Slave' Wins Best Picture Drama At 2014 Golden Globe Awards [HuffPost] - I have 3 young kids, which is a nice way of saying I don't see any movies until about 6 months after release. That said, I'm happy to see this movie win the Golden Globe, and hope it spurs more substantive movies about the black experience. On a somewhat unrelated note, Tyler Perry's last few movies have tanked at the box office. Coincidence? Ionno.
Question: What's on your mind today? Drop some links, start a convo.
