In the news...

I never see famous people...really when i lived in dc i road the metro with c. everett koop once. but last year about this time, jb(who will always be called jb in here even if everyone know his name) and i went on a road trip. his idea. we drove to salt lake city, stayed the night there. he did some work at u of utah with the linguistics folks and i drove around until i found a whole foods. then we were off to vegas. i'd never been to vegas without the kid, so i had visions of being drunk from morning till night, playing games and just generally being wild. we stayed at mandalay bay. the room was perfect enough...no reason to even leave it. there was a flatpanel tv in the bathroom so i watched the godfather while taking a bath! we went to phantom of the opera and saw the bodies exhibit (which after you get over the fact that they are real bodies, is very cool.) we went to the wax museum and the venetian and all over the strip...and no there was no drunkenness...although i did have one of those big tower drinks... because i am a big tattoo fan i had to go to the palms so i could see the hart and huntington store. on the way in, in my cloud of bliss...i see this guy having an argument with a woman outside the palms...it looked very tense...i looked at jb and said "isnt that..." but he's no good at celebrities.....it was suge knight...you know president of death row records, just got out of the pen, has his beef with the east coast rappers..suge knight... in the news suge knight just got popped again for assault in vegas and for suing kanye west.... thats my famous person story....
