The Committee is a beguiling tale that twirls Illuminati conspiracy, New Orleans voodoo, American politics and a subplot gay affair in a delicious twist ofturbulence and turmoil. We find out that the secret society behind thecountry's biggest political ploys is a mysterious New Orleans family ofCreole women who head "The Committee." It is they who in fact controlthe white men mistaken to be the country's power figures! "TheCommittee" has selected every US president since James Monroe and controls much of the country's economy. When they make the decisionthat the United States is not only ready for a Black woman president,but also select her, the phrase, 'hell hath no fury like a womanscorned' takes on new and insidious meaning.
Camille Ernestine Hardaway is the first African American female mayor of LosAngeles and she has it all - stunning good looks, power, a seeminglydevoted husband and influential allies. "The Committee" has decided that she will be the first Black female president of the United States andwill stop at nothing to ensure their rising candidate reaches the WhiteHouse. Author Terry E. Hill sublimely works hypnosis with the writtenword as he winds the reader deeper down a sinister black hole with eachchapter. The Committee's lethal combination of manipulation, intimidation, mysticism and murder make for the most intoxicating political thriller.

The Bright Side of the Steve Harvey Miss Universe Mishap

I haven't watched the Miss Universe pageant in years.  Certainly not in its entirety.  In fact, I had no idea it was even happening until my twitter timeline exploded.

I'm not one of those people who feels that beauty pageants have no real purpose.  I think that there are many good things that come from them, some of them, especially the ones that are geared toward black folks (like Miss Black America (does that still exist?).

Anyhow, my point is that it's very sad for the winner, the runner up and Steve Harvey.  Although, when I was growing up, Steve Harvey never would have been invited to host.  So, that's progress.  Right?

But what I see as the "bright side" is the fact that people like some of my co-workers, who shall remain anonymous, since they see us as anonymous, now know Steve Harvey.

Never mind the fact that he's a best-selling author, radio host, television host, and the list goes on.  Someone at work yesterday actually said, "I heard about Miss Universe and "the guy" who announced the wrong winner.

"The guy."  The guy whose net worth is upwards of $100 million dollars.

So, if there's anything good that did come out of the unfortunate mistake, now everybody knows Steve Harvey's name.
