Though I greatly appreciate both Jon Solomon and Tim Cook forwarding stories off the police blotter about Shawn Kemp, I’d prefer that we accentuate the positive on this beautiful Thursday morning.

1) The Seattle Times’ Jayda Smith writes that Kemp has lost a lot of weight. That’s terrific.
2) None of the reports about Kemp being arrested on drugs and weapons charges mentions anything about him getting anyone else pregnant.

So the Reignman likes to party. Who doesn’t? So he totes a pistol. As though you and I don’t do the same. The important things are that he’s looking good and working on the zipper problem.
