It's getting very weird out there, dear readers.
I'm fairly certain that the names Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman are pretty familiar, yes?
Here's what we know: Martin, armed with a pack of Skittles, a can of iced tea, dressed in a hooded sweatshirt (now made infamous by Rep. Bobby Rush), was confronted, and eventually murdered by Zimmerman.
I have been so focused on work and the election that I missed all of this until Joy started filling me in today. But she has been on it and is even teaching some of the self-defense classes I mention below. I will use her words here.
