  1. I wonder by the bolta will be quoting this as a slam-dunk piece of evidence?

    WASHINGTON (AP) – Actor and comedian Bill Cosby says the debate over the killing of Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch volunteer should be focused on guns, not race.

    In an interview on CNN’s State of the Union aired Sunday, Cosby said calling George Zimmerman a racist doesn’t solve anything. Cosby says the bigger question is what Zimmerman was doing with a gun, and who taught him how to behave with it.

    I mean, I dare say cosby’s a more erudite spokesman for african americans than mike tyson. Even if he was partly responsible for one of the worst films I’ve ever seen (“Leonard Part 6”). Not that personally think a “spokesman for african americans” is necessarily required, or even valid, but one needs to address one’s audience …

  2. Gauss? Now THERE’s a guy with a magnetic personality.

    He was once interrupted in the middle of a problem and told that his wife was dying. He is purported to have said, “Tell her to wait a moment till I’m done.”
