Okay, we've been silent on the whole Bishop Eddie Long thing -- respecting due process and all -- but the more we read about this the more we think if it's not this horrible mess, then something else is certainly amiss in the black church.
Y'all know something's up when Soledad O'Brien's on the case.

Interestingly enough, King James' Q rating didn't suffer among African-Americans.
You've probably heard about his plummeting Q rating (the industry standard for measuring an athlete's familiarity and appeal). According to The Q Scores Co., for non-blacks, LeBron's positive Q rating went from 18 percent in January to 10 percent in September and, more telling, his negative Q rating went from 24 percent to 44. Nearly half of the non-blacks in this country don't like the dude. Meanwhile, LeBron's positive Q rating among blacks went from 52 percent in January to 39 -- a noticeable drop -- but his negative Q rating barely budged, going from 14 percent to 15. Among African-Americans, says The Q Scores Co. executive vice president Henry Schafer, the shift in opinion was mostly to neutral.
