Florida's George Zimmerman not-guilty verdict spawned sporadic riots Sunday. The trial was very educational. White people learned they shot Trayvon Martin, Hispanics learned that they were white, and black people learned never to take Skittles to a gunfight.
Los Angeles had the lowest crime rate of any U.S. city in the FBI's survey Wednesday. It's the legalized pot. During the Rodney King riots, the rioters burned entire city blocks, while during the Zimmerman riot they just hijacked any truck coming into town marked Hostess.
Attorney General Eric Holder ripped Florida's Stand Your Ground law at the NAACP Convention Tuesday. He said people who are confronted by violence should retreat safely. He's the only American honored with a statue at Italy's national military academy.
President Obama visited a second-grade class in Washington D.C. Tuesday and he told the children his favorite food is broccoli. They believed him. Then he assured them that the NSA doesn't spy on American citizens and they just fell out of their chairs laughing.
The U.N. released a report saying Mexico has replaced the U.S. as the world's most obese nation. Seventy percent of them are obese. Last night the Border Patrol pulled over a motor home and it was packed with two Mexicans.
