Trayvon Martin Verdict

There was no way that I could anticipate that the decision in the Trayvon Martin shooting case would come in tonight.  But seeing as how I'm finally exploring Twitter a bit after 3 years of being a member, I'd like to point to something that really caught my attention.

The verdict came in at about 10pm on a Saturday night.  That's not at all when I would have expected it to come down, because of the late hour and the weekend (or both).  But together that means that you're going to have thousands of very upset people on a night where they won't necessarily need to be up in the morning for work.

This seems like a recipe for turmoil.

And Drew's followup tweet:

I hope I haven't missed any recent gay rights breakthroughs on my blog (oh right, Happy overturning of Prop 8 and strike down of DOMA!), but while I'm logged into my blogger account, I thought I would make this perfectly clear.

I utterly repudiate TheAmazingAtheist.  He doesn't speak for me, nor do I agree with what I have seen of his statements, actions or intonation.

Except by unknowing accident, none of my positions or points are intended to refer to or reference him.

For some reason I just felt the need to make that clear.
