    Gold teeth and a corn-rowed head pretty makes a statement.....can you say GANGSTA. Now we get to pay for him to live a life of leisure watching tv, working out in the gym, 3 hots and a cushy cot with HVAC, a library (although I doubt he can read), premium health care, etc.

      Seems that unfortunately a large segment of our society has already built themselves a monstrously large, expensive bridge already - to nowhere.
