Robert Godwin, Remember His Name

A cold heartless, killer took the life of Robert Godwin. An elderly man is walking down the street collecting cans for pennies. He is minding his own business when a killer pulls over engages him in a senseless conversation, and he ultimately shoots and kills the innocent man. The cowardly killer put the entire encounter on Facebook. People watched the footage, but they did not complain to Facebook. Facebook Live gives anybody the opportunity to have their 15 minutes of fame. The footage stays up for two hours and when finally reported it took Facebook 23 minutes to take it down. Who could watch this? Have we become desensitized to human suffering? If you watched network television over the past few weeks you have seen the Syrian people filmed as they gasped for breath or took their last breath. On one newscast we saw a father hold the lifeless bodies of his toddler twins during an interview. Is this one of the reasons people could watch the execution of an innocent man. Mr. Godwin was simply taking a walk on Easter Sunday when he encountered evil. A killer who wanted to kill in front of an audience. As he drove away he rattled off some nonsense to justify the unjustifiable. Some have said the killer was a good guy. Some have said he was mentally ill who knows. We do know he was evil. His last act will make him live in infamy. We should say a prayer for Mr. Godwin and he is the one who should remembered not the killer.

Sean Spicer apologized, but is that enough?


Sean Spicer apologized for his insensitive, ignorant comments he made at his press conference. Some are calling for him to be fired but should he lose his job? This is not the first time Spicer has proven to be an inadequate spokesperson. Should this guy continue to be the face of the administration or is it time to say enough is enough.

Washington went Nuclear a Long Time Ago

All week we have heard the Republicans would employ the nuclear option to place Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. The Democrats actually did the same thing years ago when Republicans refused to approve President Obama’s lower court choices. So this is not a dark day in history as pundits would argue. It has been a dark day in DC for years. The parties are divided and they refuse to work together. They are doing more investigating than legislating. It is not about us it is about them. Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp but what we have seen is the swamp has been replenished and that is in fact a bi-partisan effort.

A Polarized Nation…what can we do about it?

Billy Bush and Fox Analyst Judge Napolitano paid dearly for their Trump association

Billy Bush lost his NBC Today Show job after the Access Hollywood tape emerged showing him play the straight man to Donald Trump’s lewd conversation. Trump went on to be president. A few days ago Trump claimed the British were in on the “wiretapping” of Trump Tower. When pressed Trump said he heard it form a judge on Fox News. Judge Napolitano has been suspended from the network and Trump is still president. Association with POTUS can cost you your job.

Dana Schultz disturbing interpretation of Emmitt Till in an open casket is offensive

https://news.artnet.com/art-world/dana-schutz-painting-emmett-till-whitney-biennial-protest-897929
If you have read any black history you have heard the story of Emmitt Till. Till was a 14 year old boy who took a trip down south in the 1950’s. He was from Chicago and he made the mistake of whistling at a white woman. Later that day he was dragged from a relative’s home and he was brutally murdered. His body was so bruised and battered his mother Mary Mobley made the decision to have an open casket so the world could see the vicious brutality. Now 50 years later Dana Schulz a foreigner makes the decision to do an abstract of the mangled corpse. Is there nothing sacred? This is offensive. Share your thoughts.

Are you ready for another round of Underground?

Last night I watched the first episode of the second season of WGN Underground. All the characters are back from last season and they are all in various stages of agony. What else could we expect? The story is about slavery and slavery was agony. So when did slavery become entertainment? The New Birth of a Nation, 12 Years a Slave or does it go all the way back to the romanticized slavery saga Gone with the Wind? Sure the acting is great but do we really want to watch the overseer hit the male slave and then he turns around and hits the female slave that he calls his woman? Is this the kind of thing we want to curl up and watch on a weekly basis? What do you think is this good entertainment or is this simply a sad tale that makes you angry or simply sad?
