Barack Obama & One Of Them Funny Cigs? Photo: Lisa Jack

An exhibit of Barack Obama in his youth is opening with photos taken by Lisa jack, who took the photos and went to school with Obama back in the day at Occidental College.

One of the photos, the one we used above shows Obama smoking on something.  Is it one of them funny smelling cigarettes? I am sure Michael Phelps doesn't mind. 

I am more worried about what Obama has planned for the musical and art programs in several schools nationwide and the economy then what he did 20 years ago.  The exhibit runs in West Hollywood until July and opens tonight.

Do you guys really care about what he is smoking?-Dr.FB

Michael Phelps Will NOT Be Charged

In a development that gladdens the hearts of all who were outraged at the outrage, Sheriff Leon Lott of Richland County, South Carolina, says charges will not be brought against Olympian Michael Phelps over the leaked photo of his bong hit. 

Here is the story from AFP:

COLUMBIA, South Carolina (AFP) — No charges will be filed against American swim star Michael Phelps from his being photographed with a pipe typically used to smoke marijuana, police announced on Monday.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said that after a full investigation into the November party at which Phelps was photographed, touching off a controversy that led to a three-month ban, there was not enough evidence to charge anyone.

"Having thoroughly investigated this matter, we do not believe we have enough evidence to prosecute anyone that was present at the November party," Lott said.

Phelps, who won a record eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics six months ago, was shown holding a bong in a photograph published two weeks ago by a British newspaper, humiliating the superstar swimmer.

"I'm glad this matter is put to rest," Phelps said in a statement. "But there are also some important lessons that I've learned. For me, it's all about recognizing that I used bad judgment and it's a mistake I won't make again."

Okay, now move along folks. Nothing left to see here.


Subway Stands By Phelps Contrary To Reports



Contrary to other blogger's reports, Subway is still sponsoring Michael Phelps and has not dropped the endorsement deal they have with the 8 time Olympic swimmer.

Kellogg's may have dropped him but that is it.  Man, here I am defending Michael Phelps when I was more impressed with our Olympic Basketball team.  Michael made a mistake.  Yes, it's bad, and it is being handled by the USA swim team and thru public opinion who obviously has his back. 

Gotta love those that throw people under the bus instead of pushing them out of the way.-Dr.FB


Breaking News! Michael Phelps Suspended

Michael Phelps has just been suspended by USA Swimming! The penalty they handed down was harsh and straight to the point:

USA Swimming has reprimanded Michael Phelps under its Code of Conduct by withdrawing financial support and the eligibility to compete for a period of three months effective today, Feb. 5, 2009.

This is not a situation where any anti-doping rule was violated, but we decided to send a strong message to Michael because he disappointed so many people, particularly the hundreds of thousands of USA Swimming member kids who look up to him as a role model and a hero.

Phelps has accepted the suspension and says he will do what is needed to earn back our trust.

On this same day, Kellogs dropped Phelps as a sponsor. 

I am all about second chances, and giving Phelps one.  Next time you take a hit, make sure no so-called friends have a camera on you.-Dr.FB
