Week in Review

Ed Morrissey and Duane Patterson going over the news of the week.

I am posting it because Ed has some very good points about Fast & Furious, which start around 1:05:00, but the whole show is worth your time.

Black Sunday (Blood in the Streets)

Other Peoples Mistakes

Posted at Ace of Spades HQ

You can take several things from this video.

Things I picked out:

When the little voice inside you head starts telling you "DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE CAUSE YOU CAN GET SHOT"- listen to it.

The gun is only identified as a shotgun. Law of averages would make it a 12 gauge loaded with birdshot (7/8/9). Regardless, he is very, very lucky to be alive. I'm not well versed on ballistics but it seems to be more chaos theory than science (I know). Point is any gun can fail, so plan accordingly.

When you get shot (shoot back{doesn't really apply for a 17 year old}) you can lay down and die or you can keep moving, keep fighting, keep living. If you want to make the point that a higher power was pushing him forward I would not fault you for it.  I may in fact be a miracle that he is alive.

He went to court and testified. Good.
