A recent statewide survey in Florida, where the racially sensitive George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case emerged, revealed that a majority are displeased with the state of race relations since President Obama took office.
People gathered in more than 100 cities across the nation on Saturday for the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies, which called for civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.

Following those tracks, perhaps the most contrived moment in U.S. Presidential history came on Friday when Barack Obama surprised the White House Press Corps (pronounced kôr, Mr. President) by showing up unannounced to the daily briefing session. Perhaps we were about to learn that they finally caught the perpetrator of the IRS scandal, or Benghazi, or Fast & Furious, or Extortion 17. . .
