"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Pardon the detour...

... but she's back:

Goodness gracious how that boosts my spirits! Back to regularly scheduled bitching a bit later.

Good one....I've been a fan of her since the early 90's.

Funny story; we were at a friends house and my wife asked the hostess if she liked chardonnay.

The response:"Sure, I have a couple of her CDs."

Then there was the infamous incident in which she was caught speeding in one of the caribbean islands; and when she was pulled over she told the cop "dontchewknowhooeyeam?" and then slapped the officer.

Regardless, she is a top-notch talent. And a hottie to boot!

In Sade's version of that incident in Jamaica the officer was hitting her up for a bribe. Rue, I've been to Jamaica.
