Tight race in at three of the four primary states voting yesterday. Complete results on the way.

Mariah Carey has made it known that she is backing Sen. Barack Obama for president. While promoting the April 15th release of her new album “E=MC2” on the radio program Yo on E!, the 38-year-old pop diva voiced her support for the Democratic candidate, but admitted that politics is not really her cup of tea. “Clearly I’m no political analyst,” she told host Michael Yo. “We all know that my album is called “E=MC2″ but I’m not exactly friggin Einstein. So basically I like to leave that to people who know what they are talking about, but I am very much more focused on this moment in our history.” When asked if she has picked a candidate, she said: “That’s personal but it’s pretty obvious. “Come on Mariah, ‘Yes we can’ Mr. Barack Obama?” asked Yo. laughing, Carey responded: “Yes we can!” The singer, who is said to be dating record exec Mark Sudack, also talked about having children someday. “Obviously having a kid is a commitment for life,” she told Yo. “I really would have to be very, very positive that I was in a place where I could completely focus and put everything into the job of being someone’s mommy cause it’s hard enough to have a puppy.” Yo also asked Carey if she had any thoughts about the trials and tribulations of Britney Spears. “I think anybody who loves music and is committed to the game can do whatever,” said Carey. “I never count people out, that’s just not in my nature but that is a part of human nature, people like to do that but with me especially with making this new record, its all about the music.”



A new book from the 75-year-old brother of James Earl Ray attempts to prove that he was not the man who assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. nearly 40 years ago in Memphis. In his book “The Truth at Last,” John Larry Ray claims that new documents offer forensic evidence that indicates James was not the murderer. “Martin Luther King Jr. was a man admired by millions, but my brother didn’t kill him,” John told the New York Daily News. “I believe my brother was not only misused by conspirators within our government but also greatly misconstrued as a ‘racist’ and a ‘murderer’ by the media.” James Earl Ray, who died in 1998 at age 70, confessed to fatally shooting the civil rights leader, then recanted after just three days. In the book, John Larry Ray and co-author Lyndon Barsten recount conversations between the brothers — before the shooting — in which James feels he is being set up in a plot. “The Truth at Last” also draws a confusing map of alleged mind-control experiments perpetrated on him by the C.I.A, reports the Daily News. “James may be gone, but I have to continue,” he says.



Brad Sanders, host of the nationally-syndicated radio series “On the Phone with Ti-Rone,” is holding his 5th annual “Be Good to Women Day” national prayer vigil in Los Angeles on March 20th at 7 p.m. at Bryant Temple AME Church (2525 W. Vernon Ave.)
In addition to the vigil, “A Day of Dialogue” is planned for Saturday, March 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a round table discussion about positive relationships, a health fair offering free mammogram screenings and HIV testing, and a financial health seminar. On both days of the event, Sanders will encourage nationwide prayer, meditation and dialogue to counteract the denigration of women. “When we degrade or devalue women we debase ourselves,” says Sanders. “We must always treat women as the blessed inspired force in our universe that they were created to be. We are encouraging people all over America to dedicate a part of the day to pray for women and to focus on the women in their lives in a loving and nurturing way.”
