Michael Williams, Caddo Parish Disctrict 3 Commissioner, Shreveport, LA, is pushing for an ordinance that would ban the wearing of pajamas in public. While in a local Walmart, Williams and other elderly customers were offended by other customers in PJ’s.
"I saw a group of young men wearing pajama pants and house shoes," he said. "At the part where there should have been underwear," his private parts were showing through the fabric.

This ordinance may not be so easy to pass First, how will they define “pajamas”? ( Williams said it could be defined as a garment sold in the sleepwear section of department stores, and violators should not go to jail but perform community service.)
Second, Marjorie R. Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana, last week sent Williams a letter saying clothing is a form of expression protected by the Constitution.

“To ban the wearing of pajamas, like any other form of attire,” Esman wrote, “would violate a liberty interest guaranteed under the 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. … The government must demonstrate a rational basis for its ban – and Caddo Parish’s has no legitimate rational basis for regulating the attire of its residents."

 The city of Shreveport has a no-sagging law. In 2011, Shreveport police reported 31 incidents involving "wearing of pants below the waist in public and the offenders were issued misdemeanor summons, according to police spokesman Bill Goodin .
Despite the obstacles, Williams is determined to pursue getting this ordinance on the books.

 "Pajamas are designed to be worn in the bedroom at night," Williams said. "If you can't (wear pajamas) at the Boardwalk or courthouse, why are you going to do it in a restaurant or in public? Today it's pajamas," Williams said. "Tomorrow it's underwear. Where does it stop?"

What do you think? Should wearing PJ’s in public be banned?  Comment YES if you agree or NO if you don’t. We’d love to hear your opinions!

WANNA LAUGH?!?! ...The Late Show - Rated M for Mature

Tony Walker
How are women and tornadoes alike?
They both moan like hell when they come, and take the house when they leave!


Just ask Demi and Heather.....
Dawn Boyle

Over the past few weeks two icons from my teens years have landing themselves in the hospital for drinking or substance abuse. Two of the most beautiful women in "MY" world, with more money than I could ever imagine decided that their lives weren't good enough. Two powerhouse women who anyone who lived in the 80's was mimicking everything from the way they dressed, spoke, and wore their hair allowed a breakup with a guy put them over the edge. My question is WHY?

Demi Moore's friend called paramedics Monday night after the actress inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ ... one of Demi's friends who was at her home told emergency workers Demi was doing whip-its. A whip-it is a street name for a type of nitrous oxide inhalant.

The friend said she became upset when Demi had a reaction to a whip-it and lapsed into semi-consciousness.

It appears Demi had symptoms of a seizure -- after inhaling the nitrous.

A whip-it is not a common drug among people of Demi's age and social status. It's typically used by younger people who are looking for a cheap thrill....SERIOUSLY???? WHIP-ITS???

Heather Locklear surfaced for the first time since her 911 emergency two weeks ago, and she says she's feeling fine.
Freelance photogs talked to her in the San Fernando Valley Tuesday. One photog asked if she had a problem with alcohol and prescription drugs. Heather was mum.

TMZ broke the story ... Heather was rushed to the hospital after her sister called 911 because Heather had taken a dangerous mixture of prescription drugs and alcohol.

As we first reported, Heather's family is trying to get her into a treatment facility, but she's having none of it.

What is wrong with this picture? Why have these two women that are adored by millions crumble? How is it that their apparent cry for help have gone unanswered? What have we done to them?

I am pretty sure the rise to fame and the crushing blow of failure might weigh heavy on ones self-esteem. I am sure that aging gracefully in Hollywood could be enough to put you on RED ALERT. But where are their heads?

The disease of addiction is powerful, the achievement of sobriety even more so. I hope Demi and Heather find their way back "home". I pray they get the help they need. I feel for their families and friends.

My NEW, New Year's Resolution!

Marion Pellicano Ambrose

  I was just doing my morning cleaning and got to my husband’s side of the sink. When I saw 2 big blobs of toothpaste I thought, “Eww, I have to tell him to wipe the sink out when he’s finished brushing his teeth”. Then I remembered; this man gets up at 5am, showers and gets dressed in the dark so he won’t disturb my sleep. He works 10 - 14 hour day in a highly stressful job. He’s an awesome father, husband and friend, he’s good to his mom and often runs over there to help her (an hour and 45 minute drive). Why on earth would I even think of bothering him about a little toothpaste?

Then it came to me, my new, New Year’s resolution.(My first one was to delete my ebay account!) My new resolution is to do whatever I can to make life easier for my husband, and that includes not complaining about little things. I’m fortunate that there are so few “little things” to complain about in the first place, but I’m going to try to do more things for myself instead of asking him. I’m going to keep the freezer stocked with his favorite ice cream and make his favorite dishes as often as possible. I’m going to take the garbage out more often and take the cans back in (which I never do!).  I can’t think of a better way to show my husband that I love him and appreciate how hard he works and how dedicated he is to our family. I just wish I could win the lottery so I could give him everything he wants and deserves!

Speaking of which, I’d better go and buy a lottery ticket! Wish me luck!

Nothing great will ever be achieved unless you relinquish your fear of change. For everything you lose is counterbalanced with a gain. Without risk there cannot be accomplishment. You must be willing to die a little to who you are right now to live in the limitless potential of all you are meant to become.

Keep the promises that you make to yourself!

Here's something we've talked about before.... The almighty Facebook.
How did a stupid web site get such a hold on us?
I'm not talking about reconnecting with old friends. I'm not talking about the games that many people are addicted to.
I'm talking about our everyday lives!
People get mad at each other over pictures.
People get mad at each other over who friended who.
People get mad at each other over comments.
People get divorces!!
About 2 weeks ago I bumped into an old friend from high school. I hadn't seen him in about a year or two. He married a girl we went to high school with. As we were talking I mentioned his wife & of course his response is he's divorced. Then I realize the girl he is standing there with is his girlfriend! The advantage of having a prosthetic leg is you can literally put your foot in your mouth.
But this got me thinking about a few other relationships I know of that fizzled due to a Facebook connection. "So & so hung out with that guy the other night. They hadn't seen each other since they dated in  high school 25 years ago but they decided it would be fun to get together. She's married with 3 kids, he's married with 2." You've all heard stories like this yes?
If it wasn't for Facebook these people wouldn't have tracked each other down! 
What is it about Facebook that things like this happen? Some of these reunited couples had no idea what happened to each other & never cared until Facebook. What magic does Facebook have that all of a sudden these people need to rekindle the flame? Are people really that miserable in their lives & Facebook has given them an outlet to search for a new beginning? Were these people miserable already or did the nostalgia that's all over that site make people think life would be better with an old flame?
Tell us what you think. Have you been in a situation like this or know anyone who has?

In many places in Asia today is one of the most important holidays, it marks the Chinese New Year, which traditionally last 15 days, and is also called the Spring Festival.  Each of the 15 days has a particular role and many abide by the traditions and beliefs according to each day.  The first day is often set aside for for people to honor their elders where as the final days is traditionally marked by a Lantern Festival.  In between there are many other celebrations each day and the streets are a roar with firecrackers, feasting and family.  Many who celebrate visit temples, light incense and watch street performers and dancers.  Those celebrating the new year are recognizing the Year of the Dragon.  According to their zodiac calendar the mightiest and most favored of the 12 zodiac signs.  Those born under the dragon, which is is a symbol of power, strength and good luck, are said to be strong, intelligent, brave, innovative, highly driven and self assured.

Wishing everyone a wonderful YEAR OF THE DRAGON!

I’ve just seen the trailer for “Moonrise Kingdom” and it looks like a winner to me. How could it not be a hit with stars like Bruce Willis, Bill Murray and Edward Norton! Fans of Wes Anderson will not be disappointed in this, his latest film.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the 1960s, as a young boy and girl fall in love they are moved to run away together. Various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down -- which might not be such a bad thing.
