Minnie Riperton: A Beauty With An Angelic Voice!

 

Beautiful American Angel

When I saw Maya Rudolph portray “Michelle Obama on SNL, I couldn’t help but to laugh. Maya Rudolph has a lot of talent & spunk! But for some reason, I always think of her late mother, the great Minnie Riperton. She was a master of her craft whose singing capabilities are unmatched to this day! Minnie Riperton was a elegant chic songbird. There was nothing tacky about her, unlike today’s artists. She was a class act.

Minnie Riperton had such an angelic prescence & voice. It’s unfortunate that she passed away at the tender age of 31. Even Mariah Carey pales in comparison when you hear those high octaves that Minnie Riperton was able to reach. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1976. As a result, she became the first black female to serve as a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society. Unfortunately, she succumbed to the disease in 1979. But she always be loved & adored by many. For more information on breast cancer go to:

Noone Has Ever Been President For 28 Years!

Robert Mugabe has been President of Zimbabwe for 28 years! Their economic woes are far worse than ours. We’ve all been outraged by the bailout. Well, the inflation there is the worst that the world has ever seen. There is no real democracy there either.
Thank God that we have a real presidential race with two candidates to choose from. After November 4, we will have gotten rid of our bad president. If we lived in Zimbabwe, it might be like the war in Iraq. No end in sight! American presidents only get two terms to fuck up! What a relief that George Bush is on his way out! And if my prayers are answered, we will get the change we need! Not the confused reformed maverick! Do you catch my drift? Leave me a comment if you do or even if you don’t.
