All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Judicial Idiocy Watch

I don't get the reasoning on this at all. This "victim" broke into a legitimate business with the intent to steal.

On a scale of 1-5, this jury gets 3 dunce caps. Remaining two go to what ever judge saw enough merit in this case to let it go to trial. While I feel badly for the little girl, the loss of her father was not because of a businessman defending his property but rather because her father made the decision to take things that do not belong to him. If he was not a criminal her father would not be dead today.
