Re: “The Rant

That light at the end of the tunnel is the unfunded net liabilities train barreling this way. Arithmetic is the conductor. Whoo Whoo!

Re: “Knock Knock?

When Tracy Martin noticed Trayvon was missing, his first call was to the juvenile detention center. That speaks volumes.

I wonder if Tracy Martin had the juvenile detention center phone number on speed dial, or if it was perhaps on a refrigerator magnet.

What a great character witness Tracy Martin was... for George Zimmerman.

Did anyone else notice the response in the courtroom to the decision to admit the toxicology report on Mr. Martin?

Deafening silence.

I really enjoy watching the persecution's case continue to fall apart at the seams like a cheap suit.

Re: “Knock Knock?

If your son is suspended from school for possession of marijuana, as well as burglary tools and (stolen) jewelry, is it a good idea to allow him free rein to wander the neighborhood? Apparently, that is entirely appropriate parenting if you are a former gang member.

Tracy Martin's son would not have been shot while beating a neighborhood watch leader if he had simply stayed in school.

Re: “Knock Knock?

Assuming Mr. Zimmerman did get out of his truck and follow Mr. Martin (something the persecution hasn't proven), that was no justification for Mr. Martin to "pound and ground" (as one persecution witness testified) Mr. Zimmerman's skull MMA style. There is no law against getting out of your vehicle and following someone in your neighborhood. The last time I did so was one morning in September of 2012. The suspect could have been Trayvon's granddad iykwimaityd. The police soon came and now the guy is an inmate in the Tennessee Department of Corrections for multiple thefts and an arrest warrant for thefts that spanned decades (Trayvon's career path perhaps?).

It is beyond dispute that Mr. Martin bashed Mr. Zimmerman's skull. Mr. Zimmerman did not need to be beaten unconscious in order to reasonably be in fear of his life and justified in using deadly force to stop the threat. If Mr. Zimmerman had not shot Mr. Martin, when would Mr. Martin have stopped on his own?

Mr. Martin was made a better member of society with one shot. No ammo wasted.

At least Abraham Lincoln wasn't a dog eater.

Re: “Letter from the Editor

I've probably got more followers on twitter than the CA has subscribers to their digital content.

What percentage of the CA's dead tree subscribers are under 50 years old?

The CA is doomed.
