Column: Race war has never been so confusing

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.

A Maryland grade school suspended a second-grade boy for biting his Pop Tart into the shape of a handgun. He must be made an example. The handgun goes with the territory but smuggling sugar into school is a prosecutable display of anti-Soviet behavior.

This is the first time you have made me laugh.

I agree the picture has got to go. It looks like a realtor headshot.

Time for a new headshot. This cries out "dufus".
And his style is getting old, predictable and not very witty.
