Ain't Nobody's Business

Here's Etta James, Gladys Knight & Chaka Kahn doing the old blues standard (with B.B. King playing along with them. Here are the lyrics. & here's the song's history.

Remember that war I discussed in a previous post (amidst the talk of astrology & astronomy)? Well Uncle has a pic you should all see concerning one of the (bad pun alert) fronts. If you want to read more about the circumstances that led the state to not trust a toddler while relieving himself then Radley Balko has more for you. Just remember that it's for the common good. Right? Right?

Sorry for the double post, but I don't usually want to be quite that anonymous.
I read Radley Balko's post and noted:
When Capps' family attempted to file a complaint with the review board, the board instituted a new rule denying a hearing to any complainant who had sought financial compensation from the city prior to the complaint, and applied the rule retroactively.

Though neither Capps nor her family had asked for any compensation, Cates had, which the review board said was justification for them to refuse to even listen to a complaint about the raid. After complaints from local activist groups, the board relented.

My question is -- "this is a red state?"
My comment is "Oh, my God."
