2. I just happened to catch Lawrence's show last night.

I was so impressed by his presentation. You could tell this was him... his heart and soul... straight out. There was no put on. This is a good man, and he was desperately trying to convey this "story" in such a way that would convey the heart of it in the most meaningful way possible. But not in such a way that would hurt the parents more than they had been hurt by the leak of the story. And not in such a way that would leave him crying on the set. It affected me greatly.

Cory Bush also affected me greatly, and I'm glad he let her have free rein on his show. Other pundits would have interrupted her, trying to direct her answers. But he let her speak her piece, and I'm so glad he did. As a survivor of sexual violence myself, I recognize the lingering anger, questions, and even rage that came through in her talk. I cried for quite a few minutes after her section was over. I'm glad he let her have the last word. I'm from Kansas, not from Missouri, and so she is not my representative. But I'm a woman, and a neighbor, you might say. And so much, I wanted to reach out to her at that time, and say Hea... I hear you, Sister. We're out here, and together we'll beat them all. We are all One.

Besides Rachel, I think Lawrence has one of the best shows on MSNBC. The network isn't doing enough to showcase these two diamonds, AFAIC. They should do much, much more! When they allow their pundits to be true to themselves and allow that truth to come thru to their viewers, it fills the void of what we're aching for these days.
