Tim Russert dies, and R. Kelly gets acquitted.

CHICAGO - R. Kelly was acquitted of all charges Friday after less than a day of deliberations in his child pornography trial, ending a six-year ordeal for the R&B superstar.

Kelly dabbed his face with a handkerchief and hugged each of his four attorneys after the verdict — not guilty on all 14 counts — was read. The Grammy award-winning singer had faced 15 years in prison if convicted.

Minutes later, surrounded by bodyguards, he left the courthouse without comment. Dozens of fans screamed and cheered as he climbed into a waiting SUV.

I'm too through, y'all. Have a good weekend.

gooooowdamn! I was leaning back yesterday thinking about how long that line is going to be of dudes waiting for their turn at a shower date. I hate peds and I hate dudes who can't keep their hands off of girls younger than them; especially little girls. Btw, hi. I rss subscribed to your blog yesterday and I'm gonna add you to my blogroll soon.

The only thing that's keeping me sane is the knowledge that "not guilty" doesn't mean "innocent." but I'm still screaming on the inside. This case was a farce.
