all over us here on the East Coast. But I am cooling my heels in front of my computer and thinking about some things:
Like this O'Mara fellow. He says that he fears for his life, but...
"On Wednesday, George Zimmerman legal team leaders Mark O’Mara (pictured left) and Don West (pictured middle) were videotaped at Nello, one of New York City’s most-expensive restaurants, looking quite jubilant, even though O’Mara was interviewed just days before saying both he and his family were afraid for their lives.
Nello is an organic Italian restaurant with pasta dishes that top off at $275 a plate. Its patrons reportedly include rapper and businessman Jay-Z and baseball player Alex Rodriguez. And apparently, its newest patrons also include O’Mara and West, with O’Mara telling TMZ casually, “It [the food] was good. It was great. This [restaurant] is one of the best. I am coming back.”
And of course, when O’Mara was asked about the outcome of the Zimmerman case, he responded, “He [George Zimmerman] was innocent from Day 1. I’m just glad the jury saw that.” [Source]
I am thinking that the "Drop Squad" folks must have been working overtime for the past few days. They can thank people like Charles Barkley and Larry Elder for that.
As the saying goes, "All my skin folk ain't my kin folk".
I am thinking about poor Terry Ragland who was diagnosed by her doctor as having a "ghetto booty".
Not funny, doc. As someone commented on another site, would he tell a white man that he has a small Midwestern penis? Of course not! And he would be just as ignorant if he did. You are a doctor, not a comedian. Treat your patient with some dignity and respect. [Source]
I am thinking that something is seriously wrong with the American justice system if Marissa Alexander can be serving a 20 year sentence for standing her ground in Florida--- by shooting a gun in the air to protect herself from her "abusive husband"--- and George Zimmerman can walk free.
Finally, I am thinking that if the republican candidate has his way, Virginia will no longer be for lovers:
"The conservative Republican candidate for Virginia governor has begun advertising his efforts to reinstate an archaic and unconstitutional state law that make consensual oral or anal sex acts illegal.
Ken Cuccinelli, locked in a tight race for Virginia's top office, launched a new campaign website Wednesday that showcases his attempts to bring back the state's "Crimes Against Nature" law, which was struck down by federal courts earlier this year.
The law makes consensual oral or anal sex acts felonies, even for married couples who commit the acts in the privacy of their own homes." [Source]
Oh lawd! Mrs. Cuccinelli, my heart goes out to you.
Stay cool, people.
