Late news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The O.J. Simpson trial has started. Even O.J. looks bored by it all.
• Four rappers showed up for court at once in New York: Ja Rule and Lil Wayne for updates on their gun possession case; Busta Rhymes for four assorted cases; and Remy Ma for her shooting affair. They’ll all probably serve less time in prison than O.J.
• Ford Motor Company is almost bragging about its 3Q loss of $380 million, calling it a vast improvement over last year. “We are on track to achieve our goal of profitability in 2009,” said CEO Alan Mulally. Um, somebody tell him it’s 2007.
• The number of illegal immigrants dying at the southern border has fallen for the second straight year, down 12 percent from 2006. Note to all surviving immigrants: avoid landing jobs at Ford Motor Company.
