GEORGE MICHAEL'S PLEA

A judge is refusing to let singer George Michael deliver meals to AIDS patients as a way of fulfilling a community service requirement, reports Reuters. Michael, who must do 81 hours of community work as part of his sentence for exposing himself to a plainclothes policeman in a public restroom, suspects the judge is mad at him for complaining about entrapment. Instead of letting Michael take part in the Project Angel Food, the judge ordered the pop singer to work for a charity that encourages children to do charity work. Michael said he’s sure that would be worthwhile work, but he doesn’t see how it can compare “to the needs of the sick and dying.” He’s asked the judge to reconsider.
