Ferguson

Robin says it well.

I rarely do an extra blog post during the week, but I have a few things on my mind. We’ve been inundated with the news the last few days, the Michael Brown shooting up in Ferguson.

I’m going out on a limb here, and saying this is less about race than it is about respect. Before you hang me on that limb, I did NOT say it’s NOT about race. Look at what we know and have heard—the latter being purely subjective at this point.

Gary lives only one ‘burb east of Ferguson. I’m familiar with the area – sure glad that’s in the past. The anger, hatred, race issue – all of it is bundling together and wreaking havoc on those poor people who just want to live their lives.
