    I come here to read the news from time to time, and I just realized there are about 3-5 people here who comment on every single report and every time they find a way to connect such report to President Obama . . . All I can say is: what the haell? Are you such lazy foxes (hint: not foxes) that this is what you spend all your time on? cheesus, take a break, or better yet, take a hike!

    Upon being released, the actor said he only survived the 3 year ordeal by listening to Henrixs "Villanova Junction" 😉

    Why oh why, did this wealthy man choose to go to prison instead of just doing the simple thing & pay taxes! It's pretty basic for all of us! This seems like such an avoidable problem! Hope he does better w/his newfound freedom!!
