The Sun has a much longer article in which “Md. leaders” offer clichéd shallow nostrums like “another of God’s children” or “have a heart to heart” with your son. Nowhere are any real solutions discussed.
But in Morton’s City Paper column we get a presentation of the several culprits in the Martin case—the NRA, or ALEC, the right-wing legislation group—and we can hear about “Stand Your Ground” laws that have actually increased homicides in Florida.
Aren’t the politicians even more criminal than a George Zimmerman, in that they have the power to hurt many, and do? They should be at least voted out—if not charged—in Florida. And in Maryland, we obviously need to defeat HB 45-Conceal/Carry.
So, much gratitude and keep up the good (and life-saving, in this instance) work.
Thank You for Fact CheckingWe just wanted to thank you for a wonderful article, and for “fact checking” (“Primary Sources,” Arts and Entertainment, March 28). I learned something from your process! Anyway, it means a lot to us here at CoLab to be noted in such a great newspaper.
