ran 3.1 miles
Today ends week eighty-three of running against Obama.  I ran 25.0 miles this week, averaging 3.57 miles per day.

This video won’t make you any smarter or more informed, but it is one of the most ridiculous journalist face-offs I’ve ever seen.  Regarding the Trayvon Martin case and all of the hoodie-hype surrounding it, these two guys look like they should be on the set of SNL.  Piers Morgan rightfully blasts this guy, Toure, and I think it is a perfect example of the liberal/conservative double standard that holds way too much authority in this country. 

The video gets really good at the beginning of the eleventh minute, but if you watch the whole thing listen to the message from each side and imagine if each man’s words were coming out of the other man’s mouth (role-reversal).  Piers Morgan would no longer have a job at his network and Toure would have used an excessive amount of common sense that would have left his listeners nothing more than confused.

Example:  At one point, Toure expressed to English-American Pierce, who has been in America for six years, that he had not been in America long enough to understand America and the American soul.  Now, for argument’s sake, if Toure happened to be an African, who had been in America for six years, and Pierce had told him that he was incapable of understanding America or being able to fully embrace everything this country stands for, I think it is safe to say he would have been fired.

290.9 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day216.
