Dear Lucy: I have been having a lot of physical problems for a year. I was so afraid of what it might be that I didn't go to the doctor. I also didn't have the time or the money. I was busy just trying to keep my head above water, pay the rent and feed my kids. My mother died from cancer and I have always been afraid I would too. I ended up in the emergency room last week and now I know that my fears were right. The doctor talked to me really bad about being so stupid and not going to the clinic to get checked out earlier. I feel sick, stupid and scared. Tell me something, anything to help!

I haven't gotten a chance to see the Denzel Washington movie "Flight" just yet. So maybe I don't get the reason why the movie is being boycotted by a fellow blogger by the name of Dr. Watkins.
Still, I can't help but ask, "WHY?" Watkins has called for a boycott of the Oscars because he feels that the Academy rewards black actors only when they portray troubled characters.
