To Geraldo Rivera's Producer, Christina Timothy

CT, morality sometimes takes precedence over the Constitution and other US law (and obviously is not in line with it at the time). Especially as a Jew, Geraldo ought to know that. In this case, he's behaving to a lesser degree and in a different but parallel way to my great-grandmother Gaydos- that is, Great-Grandma Gaydos cost the lives of relatives who died in the Holocaust because she followed US isolationist policy and did not send them the help which they requested; and in a similar way, Geraldo is costing Caylee's life and justice all the more.

Civil Rights Icon Clarence Clemmons Deceased at 69

All I knew is that he had a sudden stroke, and (as they broke it on the news during Justice With Judge Jeanine) died from said stroke and complications thereof at 69 years old while he was in a Palm Beach, FL hospital; thus, he ended his career. I didn't think about him being a Civil Rights icon until I thought about the following a little further: he was a legendary saxophone player beginning in 1972, just as the Vietnam War was going to end (in 1974) and four years after a Black Republican who Bruce Springsteen wouldn't see eye-to-eye with on many issues (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) died.

So, a bandmate and friend of a White Democrat coming on the heels of a prominent Black Republican icon in the Civil Rights and Vietnam Era is pretty significant, and his or her death would thus be significant. Therefore, a Black saxophonist in a often-labeled "secular" field and in a band led by a very-liberal White Democrat left a legacy of being a breakthrough man or pioneer, and a stark contrast to the D.Div. holder who was obviously a Modern Conservative (Classical Liberal) and in a often-labeled "sacred [as if anything else isn't sacred] field.

Islam Is "Peaceful"?

My teacher told me that my comments about Islam and Muslims went too far either directly or indirectly. Once I found an article about a Florida Muslim doctor, I wrote this e-mail tho him:

"I'm almost tempted to say that you owe me an apology, because- like I said- there is a fine line between race and religion; and I'd inter any Muslim now. Keep them all in one place and watch them, because even "moderate" (secular) Muslims could grow terror cells- right even in the camps. So, I think I know what I was talking about when I kept talking about Muslims and Islam versus Japanese Americans and Pearl Harbor.

I might be "close-minded" (re: [a fellow student's] comment), but I'm not stupid. I know Islam/nominal Christianity is different from race or true Christianity."
