Jan. 4, 2006 - Forget the black hat.

Everybody in Washington is obsessed with Jack Abramoff’s gangsterlike attire as he came out of the federal courthouse.

But the thing that jumps out at me is the figure $20,194,000.

If I read the fed’s plea-agreement papers correctly, that’s the amount of cold cash that the Republican lobbyist siphoned from Indian tribes and stashed in his secret accounts.

Play that funky music whiteboy!

Even if you think you are above the law and will never get cought...

Reality and Karma are likely to set in, despite your arrogant illusions.

Now tell me again how we are all equal...

I'm just a bit confused.

Bye for now...

Yeah, Jack was real humble and said he hoped for forgiveness. I'm sure he's really sorry -- sorry he got caught.
