Philo, I do not think the good can control the bad no more than we can but I do think they got too outraged over Trayvon and Zimmerman and none over the killing of the baby in a stroller by the black robber.

Eyebrows

Many of my students tell me that the "cut-outs" in the eyebrows signify a gang affiliation. This may be a myth. Is this true?
