Chris Havlicek, the son of Boston Celtics legend John Havlicek, was one of 80 people arrested and charged with soliciting prostitution in Lakeland, according to the Palm Beach Post.
Havlicek is the managing director of Palm Beach’s JP Morgan Chase Bank and a former reporter for NBA TV. He was released promptly after posting his $250 bail. That was more than three times the amount of money he offered to pay the undercover cop posing as a prostitute for a half hour of sex.
Havlicek is married and has children.

<quoted text>Can Expanding Food Stamps Jolt The Economy?
by KATHY LOHR
July 07, 200912:18 AM
Through the recession, 4.8 million people have been added to the rolls of the federal food stamp program.
The federal food stamp program is being beefed up in hopes that it will help jolt the sagging economy back to life. However, economists are conflicted over how big an impact this increase will ultimately have.
Food In The Fridge
The government is spending $20 billion to expand the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, by about 13 percent. For Charmaine McCauley, a single mother of two in suburban Atlanta, this increase translates into an extra $45 a month.
"You know, just the staple stuff you need like bread, milk, cheese, eggs — those little things. That little extra can help with that," McCauley said.
McCauley had been doing well as a mortgage broker, but after the recession hit, she lost her job and her $680,000 home. About six months ago, she started receiving food stamps.
Amid the recession, 4.8 million additional people have sought out food stamp assistance. In February 2008, 27.7 million people nationwide were receiving food stamps, compared to 32.5 million people 12 months later.
McCauley now sells Mary Kay cosmetics full time, but she says the food stamps give her the extra help she needs to keep the refrigerator stocked for her family.
"It's definitely something that has helped our family," said McCauley. "A lot."
A Multiplier Effect
The idea of the stimulus plan is simple. The concept assumes people who get extra money will spend it — and that increased spending will bolster the economy.
"This injection of funds ends up being spent on food, and that has a multiplier effect through the economy," explains Ray Hill, professor of finance and economics at Emory University. "As more people are employed in grocery stores, more people are employed to make the food, more people are employed to grow the food as a result of that stimulus."
Most economists say every dollar spent on food will result in $1.50 to $2 in stimulus. The problem, Hill says, is that $20 billion is not enough.
"Increasing the amount of food stamps itself is not going to have a major effect on the economy. You get a good value for the money in the sense that each dollar is highly stimulative," said Hill. "But it's a drop in the bucket compared to the total size of the economy and the total employment in the United States."
Increasing Stability
The total cost of the federal stimulus plan is $789 billion. It is difficult to measure the effectiveness of the plan, but Mark Zandi, chief economist with Moody's Economy.com , says the food stamp increase is a good, quick way to create spending.
"If the stimulus is working, along with all the other things policymakers have done, we should see a more stable economy by the fall and, hopefully, we start to see a bit of growth in 2010," said Zandi. "I don't think even under the best of circumstances we're going to come roaring back. But I think we are past the worst of it, and hopefully, we have a more stable economy later this year and into next."
Zandi says spending federal dollars on food stamps, benefits for the unemployed, aid to state governments and infrastructure improvements provides the best chance of stimulating the economy out of the recession.
Others fear too much of the stimulus money will not be spent until 2010 or 2011, and by then the economy is expected to begin turning around on its own.

With a plodding inevitability, the ignorant screams of “free speech” are coming from the usual suspects in the wake of Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty getting suspended for his homophobic remarks in GQ.(He was also mind-bogglingly racist, but for some reason, that hasn’t been as sticky a story, maybe because his racist comments were a little more complex than his homophobic ones.) Sarah Palin, who is quickly making “dumbass” seem like an inadequate descriptor, said this:

Free speech is an endangered species, Palin, 49, wrote.“Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.

And Sean Hannity is trotting out the “old-fashioned traditional Christian sentiment and values” line. Sure, he’s not wrong that it’s traditional—beliefs that gays and women are subhuman are indeed a tradition—but “we always did it this way” is not actually an argument, or else we’d all still be shitting outdoors and no one would own a cellphone.

Look, I get why the usual suspects are whining and moaning that conservative assholes are entitled to have a TV show on A&E to preserve their “free speech”, without bothering to explain when the rest of us get our A&E shows because we also have free speech rights. Feeding off the claim that conservatives are “oppressed” any time they aren’t elevated as superior to the rest of America is their bread and butter. But man, it’s particularly stupid right now. They should be kissing A&E’s feet and screaming bloody murder at Robertson, because A&E was doing not just the Robertsons but all of conservative America a giant favor, and he, out of his petulant inability to know what he sounds like when he opens his yap, couldn’t be held back from f**king it all up.

Duck Dynasty was a major P.R. coup for conservative America because it was free of comments like the ones Robertson let loose in GQ. The show was carefully scripted and edited to make the Robertsons seem like they aren’t bad people, just a little kooky and “old-fashioned”.* It made conservative America look cuddly and warm and fun-loving, instead of what Drew Magary of GQ actually exposed it to be, which is miserable, resentful, and hateful. While I think most conservatives and most liberals understood implicitly that there was a whole side of this family that wasn’t on camera—was anyone really surprised by the GQ interview?—by carefully hiding it, A&E allowed conservative America to play up their own mythology about being decent people, deep down inside.

Now their cover is blown, and like morons, instead of blaming the guy who blew their cover, they’re whining that the cable networks are a bunch of meanies. Look, idiots, the cable networks bend over backwards to help conservative America out. How many times now has some right wing conservative TV hero turned out to be an embarrassment? Paula Deen? Dog the Bounty Hunter? I can’t believe, for instance, that the Duggars have managed to stay under the radar, since Jim Duggar thinks 1/3 of American women are Nazis because they’ve had abortions—I guess he was smart enough to argue his point through implication, knowing the media needs direct quotes in order to get the story to stick with people. TV networks bend over backwards to put a shiny, happy face on the rot that is conservative American culture, and instead of thanking them profusely, wingnuts just whine that they can’t be more bigoted on camera. Jesus.

And the Courts of Olympus will rule that there is no compelling interest for the government to regulate whether or not a women can marry a Ferris Wheel and will let the marriage stand.

Say the Progressive Courts:

"Hey! Who are we to say if abortion is murder? Who are we to say what a marriage is or is not, right? If society wants to call a dog a human lover than so be it. If adult men wish to mentor little boys in the ways and methods of homosexual sex, the government has no interest in regulating these activities. "
