Steven,

Needles to say I have heard about the whole affair, beginning the day after Mikes arrest. I don't believe robbery is involved. The lewed acts part is the prosecution perspective; if you read the rest of it it comes down to a hair fetish and nothing else. A sad turn of events which does involve rock cocaine and an incident with police that nearly cost Mike his life. He will be held accountable for his actions and it it a very sad thing when a good person makes bad choices that lead to things like this. I'm afraid Mike Howard will have lots of time to contemplate what he has done and I hope he finds the answers from within that will illuminate the dark areas in his life. To me he is still a good and genuine human being whose essecense is as pure as the rest of us. His outer behaviors are only indications of an imbalance within. We all have that to some degree or another. Mike lost control and will have to pay the price. I am both somewhat shocked and deeply saddened.
