Heroin remains top drug concern in Boston, despite recent focus on 'Molly'
Boston Globe - over 3 years
Despite increased attention on the designer hallucinogen drug Molly, including the high-profile arrest of a Dorchester resident in September, neighborhood leaders say their focus is on combatting heroin abuse, which remains a larger concern. City Councilor Tito Jackson, who represents Roxbury and parts of Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, the South End and Fenway, said that while the rise in the use of Molly is worrisome, he is more concerned about the issue of heroin addiction. He said a tenants’ organization had brought concerns about the use of Molly to him last summer, but that he had heard relatively little about the problem at the time.

By Dana Feldman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Michael Jackson's nephew and co-guardian to his three children testified on Thursday in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the late pop star's family that the "Thriller" singer appeared happy at a family party about month before his death in 2009. "He was in a good mood, he was happy, making jokes," T.J. Jackson, 34, the son of Jackson 5 member Tito Jackson, told jurors in a Los Angeles courtroom about the last time he saw the self-styled "King of Pop."

Official Slams Roberts For 'Deceptive' And 'Disturbing' Remarks
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin is calling out Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts for making "deceptive" and "disturbing" remarks about voting rates among minorities in the Bay State. Justices heard arguments Wednesday in a challenge to the part of the Voting Rights Act that forces places with a history of discrimination, like the Deep South, to get approval before changing the way elections are held. During the arguments, Roberts asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli if he knew "which state has the worst ratio of white voter turnout to African-American voter turnout," claiming that state is Massachusetts. “I’m calling him out,” Galvin told the Boston Globe. “We have one of the highest voter registrations in the country, so this whole effort to make a cheap-shot point at Massachusetts is deceptive,” Galvin said. Galvin didn't dispute Roberts' point, but said Massachusetts shouldn't be falsely represented in the Chief Justice's argument. ...

Marc Lamont Hill: Overrated White People
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Today, our nation engages in one of its most bizarre cultural rituals: the celebration of Columbus Day as a national holiday. Although history proves that Christopher Columbus was an immoral treasure hunter who merely stumbled upon a region that had already been "discovered" by indigenous non-whites, we continue to praise the vicious conquistador as a hero. To honor the true spirit of Columbus Day, I have created my own list of overrated white people. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, as there are countless other White people who are equally underwhelming. Elvis Presley - Elvis didn't write his own songs (despite taking credit for them), barely played the guitar, and was a worse actor than the entire cast of Belly. Despite being a cheap facsimile of Little Richard, he is still known as the "King of Rock 'n Roll." Only in America...

T.J. Jackson to help keep 'outside forces' away from family money
LATimes - over 4 years
Katherine Jackson will share guardianship of her grandchildren with T.J. Jackson, a move that her attorneys said would "insure that no outside forces try to divert the family allowance." In their legal filings, Katherine Jackson's lawyers noted speculation about a plot to "gain control over Mrs. Jackson as a means to get at funds" belonging to Michael Jackson's children and expressed confidence in the new guardianship arrangement in preventing misconduct. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff, who had stripped Katherine Jackson of guardianship last week amid allegations that she had been kidnapped by family members, reappointed her at a court hearing Thursday. The judge said an investigation by the probate court found that she was doing "a wonderful job" raising Prince, 15; Paris, 14; and Blanket, 10. "It's clear to me the children are well cared for by Mrs. Jackson. It is clear to me they love her very much," he said. Tito Joe "T.J." Jackson, 34, who wa ...

This week: a battle of the CRAY-CRAY-CRAYZIES!!! by Ann Romano MONDAY, JULY 23 Do you consider your family to be incontrovertibly fucked up? Of course you do... but you have no idea. You have no idea of the depths of fucked-uppiness a family can sink to until you read what the Jackson family has been up to this week. As you may know, when Michael Jackson died, he cut his brothers and sisters out of his will (yes, even Tito and La Toya!!), giving mother Katherine Jackson custody of his kids, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, and making two non-family members executors of the estate. SO! Early last week Grandma Katherine up and disappears... and Paris twattered that she was worried, adding, "I haven't spoken with her in a week I want her home now." Turns out the other Jackson kids (Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine, Randy, and Tito) had whisked granny off to Arizona, where—reportedly, mind you—they enacted a "diabolical plot" to "brainwash" her into uns ...

Jackson family feud: If you can't beat it, Tweet it
LATimes - over 4 years
Katherine Jackson might be back in Los Angeles, but it appears her family’s puzzling feud will continue to play out in the public eye. Two of Michael Jackson's children -- Paris and Prince Michael -- have been tweeting various allegations and concerns about their grandmother, who had been reported missing over the weekend. Other family members, including Jermaine and Randy Jackson, Michael's brothers, have also used Twitter to advance their positions, turning the drama into a very public fight. The backdrop for the discord appears to be a widening family rift over who should control Michael Jackson's legacy and assets. On July 17, two days after their mother left L.A., Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine and Randy Jackson signed a letter demanding the resignation of the two men who oversee business affairs for their late brother's estate. The letter accused the trustees -- music industry veterans John Branca and John McClain -- of a host of misdeeds, including faking the will that gave t ...
