Time to celebrate Richard Pryor

Well the City Council is finally getting its priorities straight. December 16 is Richard Prior Day in the City of Los Angeles. Says the Council,

WHEREAS,

Richard Pryor was born on December I, 1940, as one of four children who was raised in his grandmother's brothel . . . WHEREAS, Richard Pryor moved to Berkeley, California and hung out with such counter-cultural writers and personalities as Ishmael Reed and Huey P. Newton . . . He was later paid an unprecedented amount for a black actor for his role as accomplice to the villain in Superman III . . .
