How could a man scale the White House fence and go into the residence with a knife in his pocket? What was the Secret Service doing? Where were the dogs? Miriam Carey was gunned down for crashing into the fence and Omar Gonzalez managed to enter the residence? What would have happened if six people had jumped the fence and the Obamas were home? Why was the door unlocked? So many questions and not enough answers.

For the past three weeks Iyanla Vanzant has dealt with a man who has 34 children by 17 mothers. In the first episode Vanzant gave each of the mothers that participated a piece of a shirt symbolizing that they each only had a piece of him, and how it was impossible to have a healthy family if you are working with a piece of a man. The women on the show simply wanted to be loved and he played into their need to be loved. As they shared their stories you heard common threads throughout and you could not help but feel sorry for them, but today I thought about how ironic this situation was. These women are looked at as victims but every week we celebrate a ficitonal character who has made herself comfortable eating the scraps off the presidential table. Scandal is the show and Olivia Pope is the heroine. Sure she is decked in designer clothing and she speaks in a well-bread staccato tone, but she is a woman satified with a piece of a man. Perhaps we need some new heroines.
This is how MSN describes Ray Lewis on it’s news ticker, “Analyst & ex-double murder suspect Ray Lewis said of the NFL star & his alleged domestic abuse, ”Some things you can cover up … some things you can’t.” Not Two time Super bowl winner, MVP, future Hall of Famer. No ex-double murder suspect. What’s the intent of the description? You tell me. Lewis was found not guilty of obstruction of justice but that info was buried in the story.
Roger Goodell came out of hiding today and faced the press, but he was low on specifics. Change is coming but he would not say what change would actually look like. He did the press conference on a Friday afternoon. He needed to speak and he did, but did we learn anything today?
