Portland police say they investigated allegations that former Vice President Al Gore had “unwanted sexual contact” with a massage therapist during an October 2006 visit, but they found insufficient evidence to support the woman’s claims.
Multnomah County District Attorney Michael Schrunk said Wednesday an attorney representing the woman contacted police in late 2006. Schrunk said the woman refused to be interviewed by detectives and didn’t want the investigation to continue.
But the woman contacted police in January 2009 and gave a statement, saying Gore tried to have sex with her during a massage appointment at the upscale downtown Hotel Lucia. Gore reportedly was registered at the hotel as “Mr. Stone.” (LA Times, June 24, 2010)
Addiction is such a harsh word. We prefer “can’t live without.” But what is it that gets people hooked on substances? Is it a personally thing? Becasuse people do say that they have “addictive personalities.” Or is it the scientific fact that when one takes enough of a substance, their body literally gets used to the presence of it and then cannot go on without it? Well if one wants to find out that answer, we could talk to people that try to fight off the addiction of substances. And how exactly do you fight off addiction? Does a nicotine patch really work? All it does is let the chemicals you are already hooked on enter your blood stream in small doses until your body can resume normal functioning without it. (except for those people who claim to be addicted to “Twilight”. First of all that’s not addiction, that’s obsession, and you ca’t be weaned off that lameness, you’re born lame.) But you have to watch yourself no matter what. Remember, too much of any good thing will always turn into a bad thing.
Can you believe it’s already been a year since pop legend Michael Jackson has passed away? That was like a national catastrophe! The day that the king of pop passed away. Granted he did molest a few kids on the way out. But no matter. Do you remember when the man who transversed races passed away? Jeff and Jeremy were on a golf course when they heard the news. The intern Rory was woken up out of an alcohol induced coma when he was introduced to the news. Will you remember the man as the man from back in the day, when he was a lovable child singing “ABC” in the Jacson five? Or maybe you will remember him as the awesome moonwalking maniac getting down to his hit “Thriller”. Or maybe you are the person to remember him as the race-changing child-molesting deviant that he came out to be. No matter, it is safe to say that MJ was the king of pop, revolutionized dance moves and was still able to entertain a croud of thousands. As he was ready for his comeback tour to revitalize his career, MJ took his last stage dive and passed away weeks before his first tour date. However, he is still making tons of money off his music and selling countless records and dvds. We salute you MJ, for changing the music scene one dance step at a time.
