Regarding the death of Trayvon Martin and the whole Geraldo hoodie thing — lemme say this about that:
The old saying, “If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck,” no longer applies. I personally do not agree with Geraldo because I think that Zimmerman was looking for “action” but these days, the nicest kids you could ever want to know dress like they stepped out of Attica, and if even if they’re on their way home from choir practice, there will always be the neighborhood weirdo — the weird guy with the police scanner and all the Dog The Bounty Hunter accouterments who is looking to save the world — and he’ll be waiting. Sometimes we will thank him and other times we will despise him. This story is very sad on so many levels — but who the heck cares what Geraldo says?
