Oh, the rumor mill isn't ever going to stop about this Cyborg mokeys. Japan's Robo-Onehad been featured this controlled via neural signals and stabs of knife. This time out, people think the Lisa Raye Al Sharpton romance rumors are true. The two were seen together, which is to say two people were seen in public and therefore that means…anything. Lisa Raye, or rather Lisa Raye McCoy and Sharpton have both vehemently denied it. Sharpton has been married for a long time, and has said that he isn't deviating from that. Lisa Raye was a television actress, appearing on In the House among other programs. She recently divorced from Michael Misick, the recently deposed Premier of the Turk and Caicos Islands, a small island chain northeast of Cuba. Jeez – the Lisa Raye Al Sharpton thing is bogus – get payday loans (for further information about this, see: http://personalmoneystore.com/Payday-Loans/) and lives, people.
