With the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, reporters are collecting the dozens of NYC public housing project former residents whom have made it big. Comedians like Dyno-Mite Jimmie Walker who once mugged this writer on the train trestle on 153rd street or Basketball great Lew Alcindor who changed his name to Kareem Abdul Jabbar after 12 years in catholic school, fulfilling the wish of most catholic school victims to completely change their identity or burn down a church.

Crack Hoe, Beulah Blowjob told this reporter why some Rican's sheepskin was worth more notice than her toothless fellatio. After sampling the wares, I could only say, Jesus Christ!
