Department of Corections:
Chuck Berry was accused of having sexual intercourse with a 14-year old Apache waitress – not a white woman – whom he had transported across state lines to work as a hat check girl at his club.
Berry was tried, convicted, and sentenced in 1959. Although he succesfully appealed the sentence – arguing the judge was racist and had prejudiced the jury – he still ended up being convicted and spent a year and a half in jail.
Berry was 23 at the time of the original charge.
Department of Sainthood:
David shouldn’t have second guessed himself, Joan of Arc did indeed communicate with angels: notably the archangel Michael, as well as the saints Margaret and Catherine of Alexandria.
Department of Video:
Christmas is coming and that means Christmas brunch! We highly recommend that you try Eggs Dedrick to end this sad year on a high note!

And then here is a poem by John Cooper Clarke that is decidedly NSFW!!! Or not safe for home life with children, for that matter!!!
