Tenth Circle of Hell

An additional circle has been added to Dante’s Inferno.

This bastard is going to be subjected to some serious jailhouse justice! I’m good with it…

Rest now Angels.

Hit the Road, Ray

If you saw the video, you know why.

Ray Rice was released by the Baltimore Ravens today and suspended by the NFL indefinitely. A video surfaced from TMZ showing he and his now-wife in an elevator: them fighting, him knocking her unconscious and then carrying her out. I don’t understand how you marry someone after that…

NFL Is Making… History

nfl

I am not a football fan- at all. But, there is much afoot at the National Football League.

First Commissioner Goodell tried to make it right by toughening the domestic violence policy, and rightly so. Any NFL employee — not only a player — who is found to have engaged in assault, battery, domestic violence or sexual assault that involved physical force will be suspended without pay for six games for a first offense. Second-time offenders will be banished from the league for at least one year. Then it immediately gets tested by San Francisco defensive tackle Ray McDonald…stay tuned. THEN, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is punished for his misconduct (but not harsh enough to satisfy NFL players). His Twitter account (has been eerily silent.

But hold on…the NFL is not known to disappoint. The buzz todayis around Michael Sam being signed to the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad. Sam was drafted and played for the St. Louis Rams for a second before getting released. In case you missed it, Sam is openly gay and everyone is interested. So what. Let his talent speak for him.

October is domestic violence awareness month and a Baltimore salon owner is combining her ingenuity and personal story to help abused women regain their self-esteem.

Diva for a Day, is the unique program by Cindy Tawiah, a domestic violence survivor. The program offers a day of pampering in her salon, to women in shelters. She began her outreach in 2004 and has expanded through partnerships and sponsors.

Tawiah is currently mentoring two salons: one in DC and another in Pennsylvania and is looking for partnering spas and salons across the nation.
