Only two people can attest to what truly happened, and one is dead. Bottom line: George Zimmerman should have stayed in his car, driven home and kept calling police until they showed. Elicit change where it is needed, at the police department, not with “stand your ground” laws.


Wisconsin has shown us that money can buy elections. Did it also buy the Supreme Court?


The Republican Party has become a right-wing cult. It’s as simple as that.


Gov. Scott Walker and his big-money backers (like the Kochs) have proved that you may not be able to buy love, but you can always buy an election from naive, misinformed American voters. How pathetically tragic.


Many Obama supporters are not going to contribute to his re-election campaign this time because of their poor personal economic situation. However, they are going to vote for him. So they can get more of the same? I hope that works out for them.


Ah – the sound of police sirens going off day and night, and police patrols in the neighborhoods, like in a Third World country. The sound of Wichita! Dorothy awakens in her bedroom surrounded by the Wichita Police Department.


Since right turns are allowed on red traffic lights, it needs to be illegal to stop at a red light, blocking right turns.


To the driver of a red two-door Saturn: I drove beside you for three miles and you never once stopped texting. When are people going to learn?


A Kansas “Christian” pastor tells his congregation that gays should be put to death. The local media barely say a word. Had “gay” been black or Catholic or Mormon, all hell would have broken out.


New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is OK with two males committing sodomy, but he’s worried about your child’s obesity. The only thing keeping God from destroying this Earth is his infinite mercy.


Oh, no – the 20-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore was busted for sipping a beer. Just when I thought everything was starting to get better, this newsworthy tragedy occurs. The apocalypse can’t be far behind.


I renewed my car tags online. It took less than two minutes, while I had a cup of coffee, and I got the tags in the mail two days later. No problem.


It doesn’t matter what type of siren you hear. It could be a cop car, ambulance, fire truck, whatever. But it means someone’s having a bad day.
