    My Dad's lifelong best friend is the actor Samuel L. Jackson (they grew up in Chattanooga together and have been best friends since 5th grade). My Dad, who was an alcohol and drug counselor, got Sam off crack and cocaine. My Dad is the major reason any of us have seen Sam in any movie from Jungle Fever on, in which he played a crack head and won a Screen Actors Guild award for Best Supporting Actor, which they invented for his role that year. During the cleaning-up period, he stayed at our house for over a month. I address him as "Uncle Sam" and have traveled to visit he and his wife, LaTonya Richardson, a few times on my own.

    My cousin dated Darius Rucker, "Hootie" of "and the Blowfish" fame, for over three years, Jerome Bettis, the white R&B singer Jon B. (whose posse was basically the remnants of "Color Me Bad" if anyone remembers that short-lived group) as well as "Everlast" from House of Pain around the time of "Whitey Ford Sings the Blues." I think she's done with celebrities. She also flat-out embarassingly turned down Eminem, who thought he was too cool for school, to borrow a phrase.

    Folks, the Davy Crockett thing wasn't supposed to derail the thread... You know he was Tennessee's Congressman, right? That's why I mentioned it... not because he was- according to Disney- "King of the Wild Frontier', but because of his stance against using public money for private gain. That's pretty relevant nowadays.

    BTT...
