6331: Stimulating Stimulus Plans And Hustlers.
Talking trash in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Adult entertainment moguls Larry Flynt and Joe Francis have asked Washington for a $5 billion federal bailout. “The government’s handing out money to the auto industry,” whined Girls Gone Wild producer Francis. “Why shouldn’t it hand some to an industry the nation could not live without?” Perhaps they can get support from former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, ex-Senator Larry Craig and even former President Bill Clinton.
• Britain’s Prince Harry apologized for making racist remarks about Pakistanis and people of Arab descent in a 2006 video. The offenses included referring to someone as “our little paki friend” (paki is an offensive term to people from Pakistan) and calling someone wearing a headscarf a “raghead.” Racism from the Royal Family? Why, it’s positively mortifying.
• A Brooklyn woman is suing Tito Jackson, claiming that he’s her father. “He told me he was my father when I was 17,” said the woman. “He didn’t want it public. … He was ashamed.” It’s not clear if he was ashamed to be her father, or ashamed to be Tito Jackson.
