"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Trayvon Update

Mainstream media's preferred narrative:   White Republican murders innocent little black boy for no reason because of racism created by Rush Limbaugh.

Potential alternative narrative:  Hispanic Democrat kills seventeen-year old black man in apparent self-defense because he was attacked.   

The facts as far as I can tell at this juncture support the second narrative much more than the first. 

But I repeat.   We.   Don't.   Know.   The.    Whole.   Story.   Yet.
