    Tony, yes, we see what we want to see (hopefully, it is consistant with “reality”).

    Regarding the Trayvon Martin case, I would like to see what the Internet browser history looks like on the computer of the itchy-trigger-fingered Neighborhood Watch commando that shot Trayvon, and what AM radio stations are preset on his car.
    My gut “tells” me that he doesn’t listen to much public radio, or read many newspapers.
    (But, hey, I could be wrong!)

    I am reminded of an incident that happened when I was living in Union City, Georgia. We didn’t have a phone then, so we used a pay phone down the street. One night I was walking down the driveway to make a call when I saw a young black woman who was heading in the same direction. I called out to her, asking whether she was going to the phone. I figured I would save myself the walk until she was done.
    Our street was rather dark, and the only streetlight was down by the phone. We couldn’t see each other very well, and my query frightened her. She cautioned me to keep my distance, and the more I tried to reassure her of my intentions, the more aggitated she became. She made it to the phonebooth, but then turned and ran back in the direction she came from.
    Looking back now, I should have just said nothing and waited in the darkness until she left, but I was young and naive about race relations in the south.

    The latest is that there was an eyewitness to the event, and the late Mr. Martin was on top of the shooter beating him up before the shot was fired, supposedly corroborated by physical evidence at the scene and the injuries to the shooter.

    It isn’t as simple as it seemed on first glance.
