From the Slabbed Action Line: Thank you Senator Vitter

We’ve had a lot of fun with Louisiana’s Junior Senator through the almost 7 years this website has been online and we likely will again, but today I am pleased to report that our own Patricia is on her way to life saving surgery thanks to Senator David Vitter and his seasoned staff here in Louisiana. I understand the gang is not looking for any recognition because they were simply doing their jobs but in this case they definitely deserve a prop and I am happy to give it.

On the lam no more: Tranny Arrested in Broward County Florida

Well folks what can you say except it all started innocent enough making a few porno movies and turning tricks for $500/hour but the law has caught up with Terrill Lewis aka T.S. Dream and the day of reckoning approaches. It appears Slabbed’s favorite Tranny has more legal problems than Donald Sterling and it could be a very long while before he gets out of the pokey there in Florida.


It appears the Dog Days of Summer have arrived early folks. That said I have a reader submitted link on the Mayor’s panel at the recently concluded Essence Festival that is worth exploring for a couple of reasons:

Too many rich folks messing up the neighborhood? That’s easy folks as I’d invite Hizzoners to send their problems to Bay St Louis where we always have room for one more family (Traditional or otherwise) with money no questions asked. Plus it will serve to cut down on the “gobbledygook” involved with rationalizing institutionalized poverty and its brother institutionalized crime.

Since it was Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed that stepped out the biggest according to Persica’s article, it was only natural I’d do some digging on the success stories he touted such as Tyler Perry’s proposed Movie Studio at the site of the old Fort McPherson, located near downtown Atlanta. Perry will purchase 346 acres for the bargain basement price of $86,700/acre to go along with the massive tax incentives available in Georgia to encourage filming there.

To me, touting transferable tax credits that costs the taxpayers far more than they ever get in return while chasing out the rich folks is a recipe for economic disaster but what do I know? This I do know, Mississippi, Louisiana and Georgia have become expert at economic development boondoggles, funded as it is with our hard earned tax dollars.  At some point some financial sanity has to enter the equation with the politicians and bureaucracy. Don’t hold your breath.

Next up we have our own AROD and his son out celebrating Fats Day at the Chart Room, which for my money is one of the best neighborhood bars in New Orleans. Continue reading “Slabbed’s got pictures on ’em: A Twofer Tuesday Special”
