You would think someone would have taken Bill Cosby aside by now and said, "hey, you gotta disappear."
Is he really that defiant? Does he really think what's happened is going to just go away? On what planet does Bill Cosby get to skate on everything he's been accused of and just go back to wandering in and out of popular culture, making money and acting like nothing happened?
This is a man who cannot be advised of anything.

Whenever anything related to Amazon comes up, I feel like commenting on it after I tell you that:
1. I publish crappy short stories on Amazon as a wannabe author
2. I use Amazon extensively to entertain the family
3. I buy things cheap from Amazon on a regular basis
Having said that, would I pay more if Amazon hired union workers?
Absolutely. I would pay more. And so, adding 1,000 jobs to Baltimore's work force will improve the lives of a lot of people even if these jobs aren't union jobs (don't laugh because this is not Germany and nobody forms a union here and survives). You'd have to be a braying jackass to make it about yourself and bemoan 1,000 jobs in the economically depressed Southeastern part of Baltimore. Whatever they are going to pay those folks just isn't enough, but at least it is something.
If someone were to stumble across this crappy blog, they would know one thing--Amazon's stuff is dirt cheap because they don't pay their people enough. If they charged just a little more for their stuff, I would still buy things from Amazon.
Really, this isn't hard to understand.

It would appear that Bill Cosby has a problem with being accused of committing serial rape in this country. Did he commit any crimes overseas? Is there any way to bring him to justice in another jurisdiction? Why is he getting away with it?
The statute of limitations has rendered Cosby untouchable. He will likely go the way of Joe Paterno, disgraced but wealthy and confused about his status.
This country can forgive a lot of things. Cosby raped his way through a lot of lives, it would appear.
Norman Rogers is a horrible, horrible man. He was said, in effect, that an adult male can use the $300 hooker to solve a lot of problems.
"A fifty dollar whore is good in a pinch, but she is desperate and sometimes unattractive. If you pay $300 for the services of a professional working girl, you can expect that she will be reasonably attractive and unwilling to turn on you. Bill Cosby could have hired a $300 girl every week of the year. That's $15,600 per calendar year, including your Christmas Ham Boning or whatever you want to call it. Over the course of forty years, that's a grand total of $624,000 spent on discreet, professional sex workers."
As Norman horribly explains, this would save many men a great deal of grief.
"Bill Cosby could have spent a mere $15,600 per year playing hide the baloney and all he would be guilty of is being a horndog. I am not condoning legalized prostitution--I think what they have in Las Vegas is a good model for what we should have in every state. We need special economic zones where regulated adult behavior is tolerated and controlled. Stephen Hawking uses professional women and people consider him a saintly genius. If Cosby were a mere whoremonger, he would likely be making over $10 million a year right now. Contrast that with a controlled budget for getting some ass on the side."
"What an old fool. He reminds me of Tiger Woods, who lost over a hundred million dollars for sex that would have cost him, at best, a few hundred thousand dollars."
It should be pointed out that Norman Rogers is a horrible man and his views are neither condoned nor understood.

I have seen Keith Boissiere running through southern Baltimore. He runs through some sketchy areas, it would appear, and he is not going to give up, no matter what. I haven't seen him in a decade, if that. Wow.
