Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the warm, foggy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Wednesday morning, the 21st day of March, 2012, a misty, ground cloud kind a day on Cape, as I turn my head slightly to the left, looking out the window and seeing deep fog obscuring Cotuit Bay, with temperatures already in the lower sixties.  All of New England, with the exception of the coast, will sea temperatures well into the eighties today.   Chicago, for example yesterday, hit an all time record of 85 degrees…in MARCH!  But hey, this warm weather doesn’t mean global warming is real does it?  Naaaa! As we all know by now, ever ‘front runner’ Mitt Romney, a republican candidate for the President of the United States of America, took a big step forward yesterday with an overwhelming victory in yet another republican primary held in the delegate rich state of Illinois, pushing the high financier that much closer to a ‘one on one’ against the very fine President WE already have in Barack Obama, and after such a pitiful republican slog fest posing as a primary, my money is on Barack, for he can take it hard to the basket and Mitt’s outside shot leaves little doubt he just can’t ‘go to the left’, or handle the Harvard Law grad in a debate that does not involve private equity, pancakes, tree height or the many cars old Mitt drove around Michigan during his formative years.  ‘Time’ will tell.  A far more important issue is on the table of public discussion today however, the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by a so called “Neighborhood Watch Captain”, self appointed, who gunned the innocent boy down in cold blood twenty four days ago, on February 26th of this year.  The story has caused national OUTRAGE, at least those with a SOUL still intact, with more and more facts coming out everyday…  For example, let US take a good, hard look at the Sanford, Florida police department, who took the body of the murdered boy, armed with a box of Skittles and an iced tea, to a morgue and left it there for three days, even though he had a cell phone on him and proper police procedure would have dictated a call to the last number dialed on said phone, alerting his loved ones of his demise.  Second, the police, in their infinite wisdom and obvious racial bias, drug and alcohol tested the dead body, while they never even considered drug testing the shooter, George Zimmerman, a wanna be cop who has dialed 911 46 times since January.  The police have not even considered arresting Zimmerman, knowing nothing would stick anyway, a crime within a crime, something that just would not have happened if the races were reversed.  Say, a white boy living in that same gated community, gunned down by a black ‘neighborhood watchman’…do you think that same black man would be walking around with his nine millimeter still in his possession, ready to take the new ‘make my day’ law in Florida, the new ’stand your ground law’ that allows anyone who feels threatened by anyone to pull out a firearm or any other weapon and ‘take him out’, to a brand new height?  Of course not, that man would have been arrested on the spot, taken in, drug tested and most likely charged with manslaughter or worse.  This INJUSTICE and obvious cover up by the Sanford Police Department taps into a much larger issue in this nation, a nation where some cops and their ‘minions’ like Zimmerman, literally become the judge, jury and executioner of legal citizens who must ‘bow down’ to their ‘AUTHORITY’ (authority given by the people they are sworn ‘to protect and serve’)–especially when it comes to African-American males in their latter teenage years.  A tragic and sad state of affairs in 2012 America. Isn’t growing up in this 2012 America hard enough for youths who will never have the same privileges as our pal Mitt Romney, or you, or me?  The governor of Florida, Rick Scott, should jump on this while he can and the FBI must review this Sanford ‘police’ force, investigating this matter to the full extent of the LAW–something stinks in Denmark and the citizens of this nation deserve answers to where that horrible stench is emanating from–ALL of OUR children DESERVE better!  Tomorrow evening, at the First Shilo Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford, Florida, Reverend Al Sharpton will, at seven sharp, hold a prayer vigil for that young man, Trayvon Martin, who could be ANY one our children, as thousands rally in the efforts to bring this man, George Zimmerman, to JUSTICE, with law students from all over the state of Florida raising their voices in Sanford all this week, demanding this cover up be UNCOVERED. This nation’s police forces have more secrets than a soap opera and the general public will simply not stand for it any longer.  Again, this boy was shot by a vigilante who couldn’t make that ‘force’, and thus, took his racial hatred and whatever other motives he may have had into that dark alley and killed an innocent boy who had nothing but hope and promise ahead of him, gunned him down like a dog, as he cried out, chillingly on the 911 tapes for the world to hear, “help, help, help”, and then boom!, he was gone.  God’s speed Reverend, with the same speed going out to the family of that 17 year old, our hearts, prayers and thoughts go out to you. When you give a little man a little power…  Have a nice day folks and may we all keep in mind just how precious LIFE, ALL LIFE, IS, and may we begin to revere and protect it as such.  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
