Rudy Giuliani was treated like a crimebusting superhero yesterday in theft-wracked London, where Queen Elizabeth awarded him an honorary knighthood Wednesday.Oddly, London Mayor Ken Livingstone suggested the Brits swipe something from our former mayor, telling an audience, "Let's really honor what Rudy Giuliani achieved by doing it here. That would be a better honor than a knighthood, to steal an idea that works." 
Motivated by London's 40% jump in street crime in the last year and speaking to guests who included Oscar nominee Helen Mirren, "Harry Potter" star Alan Rickman, theatrical impresario Cameron Mackintosh and former MTA head Robert Kiley (who now runs London's subways), Livingstone said the 62% drop in crime during Giuliani's mayoralty resulted from hefty police hiring and the movement toward community policing, reports The News' Ellen Tumposky.Later, at Scotland Yard, Giuliani ó who, of course, is famously contemptuous of community policing ó took a tough stance on drugs. "I'm generally in favor of arresting everyone," Rudy said bluntly, when asked his opinion of a pilot program in one London neighborhood that is turning a blind eye to marijuana use. "Marijuana led to a lot of the violence we had in New York City."Giuliani and Judith Nathan, who has accompanied her honorary knight in shining armor on the entire visit, were planning to spend today sightseeing before leaving tomorrow for Germany, where America's mayor will be picking up yet another award. They return to New York on Sunday.Ganja Up on Them Reggae legend Bob Marley would probably be pleased to know his sons are continuing his worship of Rastafari. But their alleged use of sacramental herbs got them busted on Wednesday in Tallahassee, Fla.Musicians Julian Ricardo Marley, 26, and Stephen Nesta Marley, 29, were returning home after performing in New Orleans when police pulled them over for speeding."I walked up to the driver's door and smelled a strong odor of marijuana," said Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Hugh Cutchen. "In searching the vehicle, we found eight big joints of marijuana."The musicians were charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. They posted bail.

ghouliani and 'sir paul'
ghouliani is no less of a corrupt criminal, adulterer and murderer as he was before sept 11. he was been one of the ugliest anti-freedom figures in public office to preceed the illegal bush regime. ghouliani is responsible for many non-violent hemp users being in prison. the criminal has become even more brazen with encouragement by privatizing and taking over the twin towers fund, so he would remain at the head of it after leaving office. the disappointment is that part of that encouragement came from 'sir paul.' paul could have supported the victims without putting his head deeply in the butts of ghouliani and dubya. at this point, 'sir paul' does not even deserve to utter the name of john lennon, who never lost his integrity.

Warm Regards FoM
and thank you for all your work.Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll:The concert to benefit the victims of 9/11, included, Paul McCartney, (Ah, is it to be "run for evermore", Paul?) Mick Jagger & Keith Richards, Billy Joel, Elton John, David Bowie, the Who...and more, many of whom I've of an age not to be really familiar with. None of them have ever used cannabis, I'm sure..., Oh and Adam Sandler, did a bit, but, not his Chanukah Song:[...]So drink your gin and tonica
and smoke your marijuanica
if you really wannaka, and have
a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah.The Who performed in their set Baba O'Reilly & Won't get fooled again.Baba O'Reilly 
Pete Townshend 
 
Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my livingI donít need to fight
To prove Iím right
I donít need to be forgivenÖ no, no, noDonít cry
Donít raise your eye
Itís only teenage wastelandSally take my hand
Travel south cross land
Put out the fire and donít look past my shoulderThe exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Letís get together before we get much olderTeenage wasteland
Itís only teenage wasteland {2X}
Theyíre all wasted 
+++++++++++++++++++++++We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the songI'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled againThe change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next warI'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnightI'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss0g

Hi Zero_G 
The only reason I posted this because it's called News and Views and it is like short pieces and not a real article. Now that his opinion is in an American paper we can hope for more articles to be written. About Paul I worry. His new lady is against marijuana. Mark my words if she keeps him from using Cannabis the quality of his music will deteriorate. Cannabis helps people that are musically inclined to do a better job and be more creative. I'm keeping my fingers crossed they he puts her in her place in this area. Needless to say I'm being perfectly honest it's hard for me to see him with anyone but Linda so I'm being a little nasty because she just isn't Linda

Sheriff John Brown...
Always hated me,
For what, I do not know.
But every time I plant a seed,
He say, kill it before it grows.
He say, Kill it before it grows.But I say...************************************************************Can't quite figure this article out, the first part doesn't seem to be written by the same person as the second, or am I just confused. Not the first time, of course."I'm generally in favor of arresting everyone," Sir Rudy. Now I realize the article cuts him off midsentence, but I'm reminded of "Kill'em all, God will recognize his own", which I believe was first atributed to the Catholic Bishop in charge of the Cathar massacre in France, before being made popular on USMC tee shirts.I'd like to see Sir Paul McCartney, who just the other day called the late (did not accept the honour) Sir John Lennon his hero, call Sir Rudy out on this. Sir Paul, who has been a flag waving moral supporter of NYC since 9/11, has stood by the mayor at Madison Square Garden, should be arrested according to the former mayor. Sir Paul CAN get media attention, no doubt. A duel might be in order, say spliffs at 20 paces. "Picture yourself", as a man with some testicles, Sir Paul!
