Sadly, one of those "loveable, huggable" guys is dead.
It seems like only yesterday that everybody was "krossed out". The one hit wonders from "The A" had us all jumping.
Chris Kelly died of an apparent drug overdose, which just goes to show you that the realities of the real world is always going to be with us no matter how hard we try to dance -or rap- it away.
"Chris ‘Mac Daddy’ Kelly’s mother, Donna Kelly Pratte, and his uncle told police that her son had an “extensive history of drug use” and that he had taken “speedballs” — a potentially fatal cocktail of heroin and cocaine — the night before his death, TMZ reports.
According to the police report, Pratte said that she had taken him home to recover from his latest night of partying — as she had done in the past — but that Kelly had been complaining of feeling nauseous all morning before he eventually passed out." [Source]
Finally, I was in the Criminal Justice Center here in Philly today, and I thought I would take a look in the courtroom of the Judge who is presiding over the Gosnell trial. Unfortunately the room was empty, because the court wisely decided to move the case to a much larger courtroom on the third floor.
Anyway, the jury is still deliberating, and folks who are close to the case all say that they have no idea where the jury will come down on this one. The good doctor has a fine attorney in his corner, but sometimes the wave of public opinion can be like a tsunami.
One thing I do know is that attempts by folks on the right to paint this as a trial that the national press is ignoring is way off base. There were news trucks all over Filbert Street, today. CNN. FOX. NBC. They were all there. And, like everyone else, they were all just waiting.
