Off road

Posted by  ▪  March 25, 2012
Off the road, finally. I’m catching up on what was going on today.  What did I miss? Okay, here’s what I’m finding: Rick Santorum on Face the Nation prejudges the Zimmerman-Martin case, and attributes malicious motives to Zimmerman (emphasis mine): NORAH O’DONNELL: Senator, the President did not use the word race, but do you think race…

The words “brokered convention” may not be as scary as once thought

Posted by  ▪  March 25, 2012
As the primary season has continued to wear on, some supporters from the not-Mitt Romney voting bloc are deciding to fold up shop and reluctantly begin shifting their support from their candidate of choice.

Your first mistake was ever having a thrill

Posted by  ▪  March 25, 2012
Can’t miss what you never had. From reader Jim, who took this photo in a Publix parking lot yesterday in Lake Mary, FL (suburb of Orlando), and notes that the license plat “kind of puts a nice twist on the anti-obama message.”

Saturday Night Card Game (What happens when Zimmerman is found “not guilty”?)

Posted by  ▪  March 24, 2012
George Zimmerman has been tried and convicted in the media and public opinion for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, with the case almost uniformly being portrayed as racially motivated, with the wearing of a hoody by a young black male as the symbol. Violence is in the air. Already Louis Farrakan has threatened “retaliation,” and…

The other parents

Posted by  ▪  March 24, 2012
I advocated yesterday for letting the facts come out in the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.  And that’s still my position. The case began to get attention when the Martins had to file a civil suit for release of the 911 tapes.  I don’t blame the Martin parents for seeking justice…

Posted by  ▪  March 24, 2012
Newt Gringrich appeared at Tulane University yesterday the day before the primary.  The overflow crowd necessitated that speakers be set up outside the lecture hall so those who could not get in could hear the speech. When a professor complained, the volume was lowered, but that was not good enough for her,…

Zimmerman-Martin questions

Posted by  ▪  March 23, 2012
Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, that much is certain.  It is a tragedy for the Martin family. It’s not worth opining on the facts, as so many are doing, because we don’t have enough facts, much less all the facts. Was Zimmerman, who is Hispanic (or some say “h…
