News Wrap-Up

I hope everyone out there had a Happy Passover and a nice Easter holiday.

A lot has been going on in the world over the last few weeks, so I'll give a quick wrap-up.

George Zimmerman has been arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder in the death of Treyvon Martin. I hope that he can get a fair trial. Unfortunately, this case has also brought up the question of gun ownership. Aside from the fact that we don't really know what happened that night between Zimmerman and Martin, there are those out there who assume they have the truth at their fingertips and spew their uneducated opinion and bias against the ownership of guns into the public discourse. It's too bad, of course, that this tragedy also brings collateral damage in its wake.

Rick Santorum has dropped out of the Presidential race. I know that Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are still out there on the stump, but it is clear that Mitt Romney is going to be the Republican nominee. I know all the arguments against him - he is certainly not a great public speaker - his hard working wife is better - but he is our man. The sooner everyone deals with that reality the better. I like him. And for all those who don't, just remember - we cannot afford four more years with Barack Obama.

And the idiots with the flytilla to Israel. We know that starving people and thousands imprisoned in the gulags in North Korea aren't worth these "protestors" attention. 9,000 men, women and children murdered over in Syria obviously aren't worth these "protestors" attention. Or even the humanitarian crisis in Sudan that actor George Clooney is bringing attention to. I guess that even Clooney can't get these "protestors" attention.

Back to this country - the terrible tornadoes hitting the center of the country. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

It's been a busy couple weeks - let's see what the next one brings us. Have a great week!
