Convicted of killing his neighbor, Trevor Dooley talks of race but not remorse


"In his own testimony, Dooley portrayed himself as the true victim, saying he fired only to save his life. After trial, Dooley, who is black, told reporters the whole case was racist. David James was white."

Interesting case of Stand Your Ground in Florida.

Encouragement of STEM and future jobs

My daughter is doing a video project on what should be Obama's most important action as President. My belief is that it is securing more high paying jobs for Americans. In particular my daughter is going to focus on STEM (she is already doing a series of youtube broadcasts on STEM education in our state for her Broadcast Journalism class). In particular if encouraging STEM education is actually building a bridge to nowhere (or are our politicians pulling the rug out). Item number one being the lack of resistance to stapling Green Cards to PhD and even MS graduates in STEM.

Anyone have any thoughts?
