My aunt lives there. Last time I saw her she gave me $10 to leave/as I was leaving. You decide which.

There's a bridge connecting at least some of the keys.

Yeah. He's commenting on the case and reporting, as is Al Sharpton on MSNBC (IIRC). There was a big bit on CNN discussing the Rev. Al's role in this as he's lead rallies or something or other for Trayvon. The guests on CNN were pretty much unanimous saying he needs to step aside from the anchor desk for the duration of the story. THey also neglected to bring up Roland's whole shindig. I of course only heard a few minutes of it while getting a sub on Sunday so maybe they did.
Anyway, I will say this--I think the blurring of the lines with MSM news show hosts and activists is a terrible thing. I'm really much to lazy to go on... so whatever.
Also, there's been a lot of navel-gazing from various media folks about how everything's been handled. FWIW.
