    But, a teenager is not a child. By using a GOP emotional tug, your response loses something.

    A racist thug IS, however, a racist thug.  I doubt that we have a shortage of those.

    We've had 8 people shot last weekend in Chicago. Where is the media outcry? where is the coverage about the gang wars that are taking lives of innocent children who die while sitting on their porches in the summer?

    Yes, every murder trial is important.

    But, I suggest that a more even-handed approach to what is covered  would be better for us all.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      empathize with the story of one individual.  Eight is a statistic not a story.  (I know this sounds really harsh.  Sorry.)

      Through that empathy they can start to understand WTF is going on a lot better.  IMO.

        I agree about that empathy thingie. I suspect that today's TeaBuggered GOP has none.

        When GOPers do try to express their "concern" for the ill, the elderly, the abused, it often reminds me of how apologists said that even Hitler loved dogs.

        What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
