Rodney King died today.

He was a tragic figure.

I don’t blame him for any of the violence which took place after the policemen charged with assaulting him were found not guilty.  An interesting resource on the court case is here.  I discussed how the video evidence was demolished in court in this...

My wife and I were talking about him not long ago.  For each of us, his disappearance left an indelible mark.  Whenever there was a report of a missing child, we inevitably said, I wonder what happened to Etan Patz.

We don’t get many shots at the Big Leagues, and even fewer at professional sports stardom.

That was my wife’s comment.

The Weiner resignation press conference was amazing.  He was barely apologetic, focused on his own “healing” and gave a campaign speech about how he always wanted to serve the people of New York.
