She is such a beauty and has a wonderful spirit. I think I have to go and buy her book.

I seriously hope I never have the Freep do a story on me. I don't want the world to see every pore on my face.

Just commenting on the close up shots they have been doing lately. You haven't noticed?

Hey, this thread is about the multi-talented Kbkav. She's an amazing person and deserves all the Kudos.

Still wishes she would have run for Council, but she is a practical person, which of course we all know is a deterrent to getting elected.

Great story, Mazel Tov. jjaba loves the hat, a real nod to Corktown's history. She's quite a talent and dedicated to Detroit.

An old Westside expression, she "walks the talk."

That pic was horrendous - do the papers bother with cleaning up their pix? I ran it through E-Z vision twice...and gave it a sepia tone

I actually e-mailed them about that (I know, I'm a dork) and they said that it was a glitch that they were working to fix. It really doesn't seem like they're working all that hard...

Maybe they should hire 623kraw since he's already done the work?

Kbkav and all of her perceived flaws have no bearing on her character.

She is a gem in this City, beautiful from the inside out. If you put as much energy as she has into her part of the City, I might accept your view, otherwise speak of what you actually know.

hey jams, I apologize to you and to kbkav that my initial comment was negative about kbkav or her appearance. From what I know of kbkav's character and contributions to corktown I agree with you completely and I was only attempting to comment on the freep's crappy pictures lately.

All of their close ups are really badly done. Why is it that only the dog gets a color photo and higher resolution photo?

Dammit, nobody's basing any opinions on anybody based on their looks!

I think the only one being critized is the freep's bad photo quality, not the person in the photo. I quick browse through the freep website shows a lot of really badly done close up photos.

Apology accepted from my side.

Now, let's not worry about what is the image and concentrate on what is the reality. That's what I love about Kb, she doesn't concern herself about what is but what can it be?.

She's a force to be reckoned with, and I'm glad she is here.

Hey where'd blondy's post go? My Friday, March 17, 2006 - 12:03 pm post looks a little irrational without it. Anyway, please carry on with the praise of kbkav.

Great job & well deserved PR kbkav. Sure hope my son takes his Q's from people like kbkav and gets involved in the city. What a wonderful role model you are!
