1. His name was Trayvon. Some of us can multi-task and pay attention to more than one thing at a time.

I noticed that the Voting Rights Act was gutted yesterday even while I posted in threads about the Zimmerman trial.

2. well,yes and no

You see, the TM case is very much linked to the rest of the mess.

There are a bunch of people who think that the nasty things America does are only meant to kill the people who "deserve" it, the people they are scared of, the ones they are angry at.

What this truial is about is whether or not The Zimmermans of the world get to kill people.
That is exactly what the NSA is about too, if being sacred of people means you can kill them.

gold crash, stock market drop on Bernanke, 1st quarter 1.8 gdp not as good as reported earlier, Prez O speechifying on climate change, and my normal day-to-day drudgery.
