But I couldn't pass up the chance to introduce you to one of my new heroes. In response to the Jesus Plates and bitter over proposed salary cuts for state workers, State Senator Al Lawson has put an amendment onto the bill calling for a "Can A Brotha Get A Break?" license plate.
I've got a serious man-crush going.
"The plate must prominently display an image of state Senator Alfred 'Al' Lawson, Jr. The phrase 'Can a Brotha Get a Break?' shall appear in bold letters on the bottom of the plate."
Proceeds from the plate would go to, "Employees Relief Fund for the purpose of offsetting salary and benefit cuts by the Legislature and providing grief counseling."
