All the current news about Bill Cosby is incredibly depressing to me. The man was the voice of my childhood; I grew up listening to records of him telling funny stories about Go-Kart races and Fat Albert's Hernia and The Chicken Heart That Ate New York City and dozens of others until I could re-tell them from memory. The stand up routine entitled "Bill Cosby Himself" is, to this day, the funniest thing I have ever watched - and it's clean enough to share with your kids. But now all these rape allegations - I'll be honest, I DON'T want to believe them. At all. But where there is that much smoke, I guess it is likely that there is fire of some sort. Betrayed doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about it.

Yeah, I had heard the allegations long before this recent news.  I grew up on the "Chicken Heart" routine and Fat Albert and Picture Pages, not to mention his Electric Company appearances..

There are a lot of allegations. It does make me wonder if maybe it's true. I hope not.

But I'm a man that respects the law so as long as he's not convicted I will treat him as if he is innocent, until he is proven guilty.

There are so many screwballs out there these days, until proven otherwise I'll just assume it's people looking for 15 minutes of fame, a book deal, and and out-of-court settlement.  And this stuff supposedly took place 30 years ago, so it's nothing but he said she said;  I can't imagine how it would ever be "proven" one way or another.

Thing is-he aint denying it-it just says its the past-he wont talk about it. He's guilty. Innocent people call you a liar-he aint...he paid them off to shut up. f**k him.

That may be true.  Or it may be that he does not want to dignify the charges with a response.
That being said, he sure looks guilty. Bluesad

In Seinfeld's "Comedian" doc. there's a scene where he's talking to Chris Rock and Rock is telling him about seeing Bill Cosby and hearing entirely new routines. Seinfeld, even today, repeats the same material at all his shows. In the end he talks to Cosby who gives him advice. It's basically the entire point of the movie, that there's always someone better than you and to learn from them

Until he admits to the accusations, or until the truth of them is proven in court, Bill Cosby has the right to be presumed innocent, as I personally suspect he more or less is. Some of these accusations seem easily discredited and the people bringing them against him are not themselves trustworthy. Let his accusers present their cases in a forum where their testimony can be examined and rebutted instead of the open mic character assassination going on against Cosby right now in the media.

     Me, I think it was started by folks who were p**sed at him for basically telling people to pull up their pants, learn to speak Standard English, and stop whining; the ones who followed are just looking for a ride on the Gravy Train.  It's the same sort who're wrecking that town in  Missouri.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

You always my man. 

Yes, disappointing, but sadly I believe these allegations.  I don't think this is about money or a book deal.  I think the illusion fell like a house of cards.  I think these are all true but only he has to live with it.  Bluesad
