KingCast Says "You Didn't Stop Skating Because You Got Old.... You Got Old Because You Stopped Skating!"

Well well well... Aunt Dell Stewart Bailey made my Day with this 1976 pic of me before I got my first real skateboard. Wow. I think it wasn't long after that, that Uncle Joe (RIP) and Aunt Dell brought my cousin Randall over...... I recall him being like a toddler who was taller than I was LOL.... thanks Auntie I love you. I'm on the inlines these days but another skate deck is in my future. You don't stop skating because you got old. You got old because you stopped skating, don't get it twisted.

KingCast Presents: David Bowie, Luther Vandross and Others on 1974 Dick Cavett Show, "Young Americans."

Look at Luther at 23.... he looks so happy like a Big Little Kid....... Yup..... I had forgotten the Luther Vandross/David Bowie association and co-writings on some of my favorite Bowie material. Thank goodness this video was taken and preserved. When I was a kid in '76 too young to stay out late at the roller rink with my big sis, Bowie was a huge crossover play you could hear on the loudspeakers, very popular with the brown brothers and sisters.... funny to watch him on Soul Train with Don Cornelius (RIP).

So anyway I would say that overall Young Americans is my favorite Bowie song and one of my all time favorite songs, seriously top ten and we have Luther Vandross to thank for that.

KingCast Watches Seattle End the Kearse With a Gritty 28-22 Division Win Over Green Bay.

This is an actual discussion with an old friend and former landlord B.E. in Chesapeake, VA, in which I had conceded the Green Bay win!

Anyway, he has roots in Wisconsin. I have done some videos there exposing Court corruption and of course rode through there on my cross country ride to Seattle. Being from Cleveland it is so relieving to live in a town that can actually get it done, as opposed to having been at the infamous "The Drive" game back in the 80's....

Wednesday 7:31am
Well Bill here in Seattle I'm sad to say y'all have had a Good Run this year.....
LOL anyway we'll see what happens. Meanwhile I assume you know these guys.... https://www.youtube.com/user/cjponyparts
Wednesday 10:15am

Yeah the pack is probably done... it was fun while it lasted. Yeah i have bought a few things from them. Got a long way to go on out project. Its just a too dang cold for now.... bring on the heat!!!
Yah I know I was in Cleveland for Christmas it was 55 degrees so Pops and I strolled the golf course... meanwhile from my cross country trip you know I had to do this:

4 hours ago
I dunno man.... Pack is Back....

Looks good so far but too many fg's. Need td's
True but I've never seen the Hawks step off so fucked up.....

Yeah. I didnt expect that.
Nobody did. If they don't come out blazing in the 3rd the game is yours
Yaaaaahhhhh THAT's what I'm talking about

That sucked. I still feel good though. Took a trick play to finally score....

Oh I know right. Whether that is the bounce that ignites them will be the question.
BTW after the game check out some of my Madison follies with a crooked judge a couple years back. You won't get all of it (there's a LOT to get) but you'll catch the vibe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3zDfwQVvBQ
They basically covered it all up v
Still no ignition here mate.
Congratulations and Good Luck in the Big One.

Thanks... looking good now....

KingCast Revisits Christopher Siege James Vintage Motorcycle Racing Show.... Year 2015 at Renton's Lawless Harley-Davidson.

Christopher Siege James, Artist, Motorcycling Devotee and Historian, International Man of Intrigue. Stay tuned for more pics and the 2015 video of the Annual Vintage Motorcycle Racing Show at Renton's Lawless Harley-Davidson. Hats off to Siege, his models and our ever-ready host!

Much More Below the Fold!

KingCast Buys a Citroën DS!

My First... a smaller model DS never officially imported to the States.... and guaranteed to be more reliable than the larger models!  Seriously, my father almost bought one of these many many years ago but went Volvo instead as noted in the Volvo chronicles. It would have been fun being stranded on the side of the road with one of these though. Alors, voila, il ya un BBC commentary. What I didn't know, interestingly enough, is that they indeed still make a DS line. Here's Jay Leno bidding adieu to his 1971!

KingCast Sees Columbus Ohio & Franklin County Prosecutor & Police Protect Alleged Serial Rapist Edward Battle III When Victims are Black.

Top video = Current Political Malfeasance.

Second video = History of Political Malfeasance documented by Ms. Kennedy Kent, Mr. Whitaker, Michael Isreal, Jerry Doyle (RIP), Loretta Heard (RIP), Bill Moss (RIP), Bob Fitrakis, Esq., Minister Donell Muhammad, Christopher King, Esq. and Auditor Dave Yost, 1997-Present.

Third video = Interviews with WTVN's Dirk Thompson, 2011.
Black Child Victims of Rape Matter

I left Columbus, Ohio after years of Civil Rights practice because I realized I was up against an immovable mountain of racism, bigotry and general malfeasance. Those who chose to stay and fight have had a hard road with some serious casualties of War (i.e. my former client and friend Jerry L. Doyle RIP) and a few successes including last year's report from Auditor Dave Yost, linked above, noting "[A] culture of deceit."  Yet but still only one indictment on the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Scams, natch. Prosecutor Ron O'Brien's office is not helping much to combat said culture, I can assure you of that. As Jerry said --- it is, was, and always will be "The Columbus Plantation."

I am certain they are still trying to cover that one up, you had better believe it. And to think that I thought I could help make things better as an Assistant Attorney General, or private practice Civil Rights lawyer, right. 

So today I commend those who stayed to fight, even as I cringe at the current allegations of rape by Edward Battle against three young children. Here is the Columbus Free Times feature.

Muhammad revealed that he had met with O’Brien as had the three rape victims. He wondered why O’Brien had not convened a grand jury after three separate police reports found the child victims credible. In a December 31, 2014 letter to O’Brien, Muhammad wrote: “Children have stated they have been raped. There are suspected and potential victims. We will not allow our children to grow up to feel unsafe in this world.” Muhammad named the alleged child rapist in his letter, “We are again requesting Edward Battle III be arrested and charged and a grand jury convened without further delay.” 
Muhammad pointed out that “…Edward Battle III being named as a suspect in three police reports, based on law enforcement and other authorities stating that the victims were very credible, consistent and compelling….” Early on, the Center for Child and Family Advocacy compiled evidence of child rape. Franklin County Children’s Services caseworker Laura Burgess recorded a written assessment of the case on August 2, 2013 for the Columbus police. Burgess wrote that a child victim “…was able to give disclosure of sexual abuse that was reasonably consistent with what was reported in the allegation narrative. Further, this disclosure was spontaneous and she was not observed or assessed to be coached in any manner. The disclosure was consistent and clear.” 
KingCast applauds Minister Muhammad for his efforts in this regard but publicly wonders why Ron O'Brien would even discuss the details of this case in such a manner. 
Bonus round: The gang rape of a disabled girl at Mifflin High School where the Principal hid it from the police... that settled for $350,000.00 and untold attorney costs that were shouldered by the area residents and taxpayers. Commissioner Mary Jo Kilroy was at the helm of the Columbus School Board during much of this time, take a look, and here's more. In the second video Loretta Heard gave her a good tongue-lashing for her general malfeasance and pointed disregard for citizens who exercised their First Amendment Rights of Assembly, Speech and Protest.

I used to encounter a lot of things like this but the Powers-That-Be always found a way to cover it up until the day I left Columbus, in 2000. I am regrettably glad to see that some of the issues and causes that my clients and I championed way back in the Day are coming to light today, fifteen years later.
