Was It That Serious?


After reading Jason's comment, I decided that maybe I was a bit hard on the show. I didn't mean to imply the show was completely pointless. What I thought was pointless was the Crossfire inspired back and forth yelling. That's not debating to me. I think when you come into something with a defensive attitude, you're not going to be open to hearing the other side, and in the end, you end up just saying something that falls on deaf ears.

But it could have been worse. T.I. could've gotten up and stabbed Dyson in the throat.

A man stabbed his roommate after they got into a heated discussion about the music industry, Leon County deputies said Wednesday.

The roommate, along with witnesses, told deputies he was accidentally stabbed while washing dishes. They maintained this version of the story until confronted with the inconsistencies of their accounts.

It later came out that the roommate and Morris were watching a TV show about the state of hip-hop in America. The two began discussing how black men are portrayed in the music industry.

As the conversation became heated, Morris grabbed a knife, according to the arrest report. The two struggled for control of the knife and then Morris stabbed him.

The irony. I'm thinking of a word that I really don't want to say. Gave it up. But dammit, I know you know what I'm thinking!
