I spent the evening with Jeff and Amanda and friends watching a zombie flick. We saw “Fido,” a selection brought to us by Ted.

My Jewish friend at work, Mr. Smith, brought to my attention a Creative Loafing series about the Black Mafia Family (BMF). Just in time for the holidays I learned about a brotherhood so rich in…well…ice, scrilla, green, snow, and other hip-hop terms I’m learning. The whole nasty crew started up…Continue Reading
