News emerged this morning of a child that he
fathered created with someone who wasn’t his wife. Classy!
Donna Savattere, then a 35 year old production assistant at CBS Sports, has been reportedly paid to stay quiet for years, while raising Chloe, their now-seven year old daughter.
Remember the bizarro world of Footloose (this one, not that one) where dancing and rock music was banned in some small town because kids died in a rock-music-fueled car accident? Admittedly, today’s news out of New York City is a cat of a different color: New York City has established a list of words that are now banned from school standardized tests. And when you read this list, even if you’re the type of dude that often sides with The Man, you may just start packing your bags for Newt’s moon base.

We all love a good Occupy Wall Street story. Usually, they’ve got to do with a bunch of well-meaning young folk championing some common-man economic problem and exposing an evil empire’s exploitations. And sometimes it ends up being poorly-deployed news. If you’re into the latter and not the former, mother-hivemind Cafemom and the New York Post both have a story about Wise Ahadzi, a single father of two daughters whose house was just occupied in the name of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.
Ahadzi had bought the house in Brooklyn, New York, in 2007 for over $400,000, and made his normal payments for about two years. Then, in 2009, he lost his job, just as the housing crisis slammed the value of the house down by more than half of the original cost. Ahadazi has been in foreclosure proceedings with Bank of America since then. The single father even moved down the road to a smaller and more affordable apartment during the court battle.
Ahadzi still, according to everyone involved, still owns the house – even through the lengthy foreclosure proceedings.
