World Peace has to wait until Sept. 16

We thought we were getting World Peace today. But it's just going to have to wait. Until Sept. 16, that is.

Via the LA Times, Ron Artest's name change has been put on hold. Why? He has to first "clear outstanding traffic warrants." Awesome. Now we get to think about thise for another two weeks or so.

I have to wonder though: Think this traffic citation is included in that? I bet it is.

Eventually this is going to happen. But much like Artest's pending deal with the Chesire Jets, it's on again, off again. And we're just going to have to wait a little longer for World Peace.

Ron needs to "keep it real" and change his name to something more appropriate like, "Just Another Uneducated Fool From The Ghetto".

What if Ron Artest goes through with the name change and later experiences another about-face of heart (becoming aggressive and combative as he was before)?  I guess he could always say there's really just one 'T' in the first name, meaning he's really Meta-World-Peace (as in beyond world peace).  And his prior antics made it clear he's a natural at being beyond peace.

Right now, though, he probably just wishes he could be Meta-Traffic-Warrants.

Will the back of his Jersey read MettaWorldPeace? or Worldpeace? or peace?

It brings to mind the stereotypical beauty pagent contestant talking about world peace. This is too funny and very pathetic. If it was football we might blame it on concussion related symptoms.
