Sunday Contemplation (14 Jul 13)



Today’s Sunday Contemplation:

In case you haven’t heard, George Zimmerman was found Not Guilty last night.  No incidents of violence although some broken glass and small fires in Oakland (not sure if that even rises to the level of unusual in Oakland) were reported.


First off anyone comparing this incident to the Emmett Till murder is either a liar, delusional, or both.


I have looked over the case as much as one can without access to all the evidence, and it looks to me like this was a tragic accident that had escalated by a series of poor decisions by both Zimmerman and Martin.  [SidenoteRumors have stated that the Department of Justice is gong to file federal charges against Zimmerman for violating Martin’s civil rights]


Are General Practitioners obsolete?  We all realize the benefits of a well-trained physician when it comes to things like pharmaceuticals and surgery, but with the exception of diseases more likely seen on House, then in real life the preliminary diagnosis could be handled by an intelligent user on Web MD or some other similar site.  (I’m not advocating not going to the doctor btw)


Why is there so long between seasons on TV shows now a days?  I meant to mention this earlier, after watching the season finale of Defiance, I get the whole cliff hanger thing, but season starts in June of 2014, so a year away.  In that time I won’t even remember the show.


On a more personal note, I started Sunday Contemplation, to write down my unfiltered or at least less filtered thoughts on Saturday evening/Sunday morning, as time passed I have gotten away from that, I hope to get back to more contemplative Sunday Posts, focusing more on ethical dilemmas rather than worldly events.
