What's Sense Got to Do With It?
The mayor of St. Louis has decided not to honor a request to make September 2nd Ike Turner Day in the city.

Ok, so far, so good. It's good not to give a day to a guy who has a history of smacking women around. But then the mayor really fucked up. According to the Associated Press:
"The mayor suggested, through a spokesman, that Ike Turner could visit a St. Louis center that provides services to domestic violence victims to call attention to the issue."

Holy push down a flight of stairs, that is a BAD idea. Can you imagine being an abused woman, frightened, alone; you think you've found your safe haven when suddenly IKE TURNER BURSTS THROUGH THE DOOR!! You'd shit your institutional gown.

Hey, mayor of St. Louis, why don't you invite Mike Tyson to visit a Rape Crisis Center? Ask David Duke to tour the local NAACP headquarters. Too bad Michael Vick isn't allowed to travel; I'm sure the St. Louis Humane Society would love some autographs and game jerseys.

And as far as the domestic violence center goes, why stop with Ike Turner? Aren't OJ Simpson and Robert Blake more obvious choices? Sure, Ike smacked the stage wigs off of Tina Turner back in the day, but she's still alive. Wouldn't a remorseless killer bring much more "atttention" to the issue of domestic abuse? Dammit, Mr. Mayor, why not go all out?

I think Ike should go there. And then Tina should show up and kick the shit out of him. I think it would send a message of hope to these women.

It's the least he could do.

I have to admit....that's freakin' hilarious.

I imagine it was done with good intentions but these politicians nowadays, they'd be fired if they were a CEO of any company!

An old friend of mine used to work for Jet Magazine, and interviewed Ike Turner. In the course of the interview, my friend asked Ike Turner about Tina Turner's allegations of abuse. He replied, "Yeah, I hit the b*tch." Total fucking idiot.

I guess she gets the last laugh, though. She's wildly rich, lives in a Swiss Chalet with her European boyfriend who is 25 years younger than her, and is still smokin' hot. He hasn't a pot to piss in.
