    I attended a rally and march for Trayvon in Los Angeles yesterday. It was the second in two days. There were a couple thousand of us who'd come out in rush hour traffic on a weekday to hear speeches, prayers, and song and to march through downtown in solidarity and remembrance.

    This case is very clearly a gross injustice. The fact that the known killer has not been arrested is just disgusting. Even if it were remotely plausible that he was acting in self-defense, which it is not, he should still be arrested because the whole point of 'self-defense' is supposed to be that it has to be proven; otherwise, any murderer would just say they acted in self-defense, and go on their merry way.

    I watched the Anderson Cooper interview with George Zimmerman's lawyer. The upside is that if that attorney is going to defend Zimmerman in a court of law, Zimmerman is definitely going to be convicted. I've never seen an attorney come across as so nervous, hostile, and defensive, or to have so little credibility.
