Interesting ...

... very interesting. Paris Hilton has been ordered back to jail and rightfully so, what criminal do you know gets a chance to go home on the weekend?
Apparently, she left a California courtroom screaming and crying for her mother saying, "It's not fair!" Ha, you know what's not fair? She can run around doing whatever she pleases just because she comes from money. That's not fair. She is famous for absolutely nothing. That's really not fair.
Well, I will say one thing for her, she's not blaming her legal issues on her race - unlike Wesley Snipes. In case you haven't heard, Snipes, who unlawfully claimed an estimated $12 million in tax returns, is playing the race card in his indictment.
This negro's attorneys have said in court documents that he received additional tax evasion charges while his two white co-defendants did not. Everybody say it with me on three. One ... two ... three ... "SO!"
This man makes an un-godly amount of money for every single picture he does. Look at the movies he's been a part of: the Blade trilogy, Murder at 1600, the Art of War, U.S. Marshals, a couple of Spike Lee Joints and a bunch of others.
His lawyers say that he fell victim to "unscrupulous tax advice." Now, I don't have Wesley Snipes' amount of money. In fact, I am too broke to pay attention, but I am guessing that when you have the kind of money he has, you might want to hire someone to keep an eye on your accountant.
Sounds like to me he didn't plan ahead. Obviously, he has not been well-versed in the number of celebrities who have lost their fortunes because of tax evasion. Let's go down the list, shall we? There's Redd Foxx, Peabo Bryson, Ron "Mr. Big" Isley, Don King and so many others.
He just needs to go ahead, pay the government back and keep it moving.

I was wanting to hear what you had to say about the Genarlow Wilson case. I just knew you were gonna touch on that.
