We predicted a baby by this time last time we were on the air and like the hordes of media camped outside the hospital, the Duchess of Cambridge (who will give birth to the Prince or Princess of Cambridge soon) hasn’t had her baby —- yet. If it happens when we’re on the air, we’ll take you to London. And as one life ends (Helen Thomas – who I thought was already dead) died at 92 on Saturday… another is scheduled to begin (and did just hours after we went off the air).  We were the first program to bring you live reaction to the verdict in the George Zimmerman case, but that was a week ago and the verdict still has people talking about – what else – race. In a ‘surprise’ appearance in the White House briefing room, President Obama stoked the fires of racism by not only comparing Trayvon Martin to himself, but saying that he could have been Trayvon Martin 35 years ago (nothing like a little narcissism to get the weekend of protests off to a good start). Remember, it was President Obama who said last year that if he had a son he would “look like Trayvon” and now Obama (referring to something: maybe the fact that the 17-year-old Trayvon that we’ve all come to know through pictures of him as a 12-year-old instead of the high school student he actually was used drugs, knew how to fight, and hated white people). The continuing saga of Mayor Bob Filner continues as people from both sides of the aisle are calling on the embattled, kind of perverted, San Diego mayor to resign. You know a scandal made it to the mainstream and to the point of no return when the late night comedians begin weighing-in on the issue – and lucky for people in San Diego – the city is now defined by a mayor who calls himself a hugger, but who women around him tend to fear. Rolling Stone magazine is being criticized because their cover includes one of the Boston Marathon bombers. I’m not one to defend ‘Rolling Stone’ because I don’t read the magazine and generally don’t care who is on the cover, but why do politicians feel like they need to weigh-in on issues that are – when you think about it – trivial?
