  1. What a jerkweed. This guy is actively campaigning to be the most hated man in America. Pretentious twit.

  2. Who cares, Kanye is exactly what he is, loud, obnoxious, ignorant, selfish, lazy and conceited. Dude you make music you are not saving the world. Today show should have kicked him off the show for cting like a four year old little girl.. jeesh man grow up already..

  3. You are such an amazing writer. Wishing you a strength and peace that surpasses all understanding as you continue to walk the high road … you are amazing, and I honor you for being YOU! You represent grace and dignity … with a smile that melts anyone blessed to be on the receiving end of it. God Bless you Always, Carrie!!!!

  7. How d isappointing! With just a few exceptions I come to feel really let down by what you call the perfect and worst of 2009. With all the exception of Melbourne is logo almost all the remaining I would be ashamed to put in my portfolio had I designed them. There once again I did notso I can breathe a sigh of relief.

  8. I love the expression. Everyone needs to express there own opinion and feel free to hear others. Keep it up 🙂
