Fort Myers Attempts To Ban Hip-Hop

In a move made to possibly distance themselves from the travesty that is Plies, elected officials in Fort Myers, Florida are attempting to ban Hip-Hop music in many popular city venues.
Spearheaded by Councilman Warren Wright with backing from Mayor Ready Henderson, the move would effectively and immediately make it a crime to play Hip-Hop music at any event or within any concert hall.
Using an age old argument, one that would have people think Hip-Hop and violence go hand and hand, the idea is gaining momentum among Fort Myers' geriatric community.
Never one to silence himself, Mayor Henderson remarked on his disdain of the seemingly immortal musical art form that to local press, revealing just how far he is willing to fight the genre.
But That Let Marilyn Manson Do This, And He Has Swine Flu

The ‘We’re From America’ rocker has been officially diagnosed with the H1N1 virus, although he does not have a life-threatening case and is expected to make a speedy recovery.

Joking about his diagnosis on his MySpace Celebrity blog, he wrote: “So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU.

“I know everyone will suggest that f***ing a pig is how this disease was obtained.

“However, the doctor said my past choices in women have in no way contributed to me acquiring this mysterious sickness. Unfortunately, I am going to survive. M [sic]”

Manson isn't the only celebrity to have been diagnosed with the potentially fatal disease, which originated in Mexico and has the symptoms of a heavy cold.
‘Harry Potter' actor Rupert Grint - who plays Ron Weasley in the hit wizard film franchise - thought he was going to die when he contracted the highly contagious disease.

He said: "It was quite scary when I first found out I had swine flu. I thought, 'Am I going to die?' But it was just like any other flu really. I had a sore throat and I went to bed for a few days."

Kasabian singer Tom Meighan was rushed to hospital in Sydney, Australia, where he was diagnosed with the virus.

A day later, his bandmates guitarist Serge Pizzorno, bassist Chris Edwards and drummer Ian Matthews were left bedridden after coming down with the same symptoms.
