“I agree with Fox News on the Trayvon/Zimmerman case here.” Did I just think that?

Fair and Balanced? Fair and balanced!

“This is the legitimate debate to be had about whether this Florida law contributed to this, whether that’s a sensible law, and I’m not so sure it is. It seems to be there’s traditional standard of self defense…which this law goes further then and sort of makes it—if you just feel threatened—you can use deadly force.

I’m not so sure we want a society in which that is the case.”

    I think you did just agree with Fox News. And, I agree too.

    I think many of us hate fox news, but in the words of the Buddha, " Hatreds do not ever cease in this world by hating, by by not hating; this is an eternal truth." Thank you for allowing a little love to spread!
