You think you have Bar Mitzvah problems?

How about Solomon Burke, the Atlantic Rhythm & Blues great who just died:

Burke left behind 21 children, 90 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, many of whom toured with him and pursued music careers of their own. He spent his life preaching as spiritual leader for Los Angeles’ nonsectarian Church of God for All People. “From day one, literally God and gospel were the driving forces behind the man and his music,” his website says.

21 kids? That shit is no joke.

Cry to me, indeed.

    Shawn Kemp is impressed but Antonio Cromartie told me he’ll have more than 21 kids in the NFL. The gauntlet has been thrown; the condoms have been thrown out.
