Busy Day

The front finally made it through, so today was beautiful. Despite the fact that this was a ‘cold front’ all it did was return temperatures to what is supposedly ‘normal’ for this time of year. I have severe doubts we will see the third cold spell of the season, which once occurred around Easter. The temperature in the Gulf is already back into the 70s.

I am hard put to remember a more frantic display on the Right and among the NRA whackoes to justify what happened in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was not targeted for his choice of clothes, he was targeted for the color of his skin. Hooded garments go back millennia among the Inuit, and centuries among monastic orders and academics. They are a standard item of clothing for people who work outside, and athletes. I have two hooded jackets that are older than Mr. Martin was at his death. These attempts to obfuscate the core issue, and to transfer some of the guilt to Mr. Martin are disgusting.

Just as a reminder – I have been warning about the real target in the War on Women™, Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479 (1965), for a very long time, and first wrote about it here on January 14, 2006. The Christianists want to impose their views and beliefs regarding morality on everyone in the country – just like the Taliban. This is how religious wars always start.
