Don King Sues ESPN for $2.5 Billion

That's billion with a b.

Not sure how he got that dollar figure exactly, though the AP writer, Bob Gloster, might want to be careful:

King, wearing a garish American flag tie and two flag lapel pins, then quietly stepped back and let lawyer Willie Gary answer questions.

How dare he call the necktie garish! Sounds like another billion dollars to me.

I will stop before I insult Don King here, lest I get sued myself. Note that Don King is a Bush supporter, something the RNC used a little in the election. They must have been proud to have the endorsement of such a great stateman (no sarcasm there, I assure you, Mr. King).
