Everyday, someone inspirational can motivate you to do greater things. Usually, these individulas tend to be older and wiser with much more wisdom to share. Last night, during the annual CNN Heroes presentation. I stumbled upon Pat Pedraja, an amazing young man who has done some absolutely wonderful things to help raise money and awareness to help kids with Leukemia.

I would like us all to read his moving speech -

"Thank you, I'm so excited and first of all I'd like to thank all the heroes that were featured online with me,' he said during his acceptance speech. "They are all such amazing people doing amazing things and it's really an honor to be among them."

"With just a cheek swab you can be on the national bone marrow's registry in over 50 countries and doing something so simple, you could be the one to save a life like a kid like me,' he said. "All of us have the power to make a difference. You just can never give up and always believe. I just want to let everyone know, you are never too young to change the world."

I would like to help him by spreading the word about voting for him on CNN's website.

May you live long, Pat!


We warned you months ago about an emerging record industry protege named David Jordan. We are pretty sure that by now most of you have heard of him and his rather 'distinct' talent - he recently performed on the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Royal Family wearing a cross-between Freddie Mercury's trademark jacket and a morning suit. And as for the performance.................NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!

We can't take any of this Jordan dude, we are desperately searching for his talent. Surely, we shouldn't have to work this hard to spot it. - 37k -


So..............what do we think about the new power couple rocking the 2008 Presidential Race? Oprah 'dynamite' Winfrey ghas decided to endorse Democrats' candidate Sen. Barack Obama. She is currently on a 3-state campaign tour with him as they pack arenas of potential voters.

Without trying to be cynical, we ask, is this a really good move? Does celebrity endorsemnent enhance political profiling afterall Sen. Kerry was endorsed by everyone from Ben Affleck to Bruce Springsten yet he lost to George W. Bush.

Last night, a CNN guest described the OBAMA & WINFREY partnership as the ultimate "green card". Do we agree?

What we do agree in is the amount of black power that these two pack, while listening to their speeches last night - we thought DAMN, that's black intelligence!

Good luck Barack, in the words of brother Malcolm..... "By Any Means Neccessary"
