Why does someone like Michael Jackson get so much more attention in his death than someone like Ed Thomas? I know Thomas has gotten world-wide attention, but certainly not the 24/7 coverage that is the Jackson worship-fest. I guess character doesn’t necessarily correlate with TV coverage.
The Connecticut firefighter white discrimination case being decided in favor of the white firefighters (and overturning the lower court decision of the Supreme Court Nominee) will have no impact on Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation process.
Sure it’s a little embarrassing for a judge when her decisions get overturned by a higher court, but this just proves to the liberals and the Democrats in the Senate that Sotomayor is someone who would have voted the way they wanted on this issue.
This case makes no difference at all.
Justice for Bernie?
I understand the outrage people feel toward Bernie Madoff who took people’s life savings and flushed it down the crapper. Madoff got a 150 year prison sentence yesterday.
I understand a long prison sentence, but is this really justice when compared to other crimes? For example, compare Madoff to the scumbag in Oklahoma who raped a 4-year-old child who only got ONE year in jail.
I guess this tells us how much we value money and how little we value children and their innocence.
