Convictions

Remember when the OJ trail was winding down? I was student teaching in a middle school. One of the secretaries came to each class and quietly told each one of us to keep the TV off and not talk about the case. This had to take awhile, and was a big inconvenience for her as well. It seems that the school officials were afraid that the black students in my school (6-8 grade) would get all upset and riot. I remember thinking how ridiculous that was. Now, I think the jury didn't convict him becasue of the same reasons. They were afraid.
I'm glad that Saddam Hussien was convicted, but it's not over yet. Can you imagine what it must be like over there right now?

I can't imagine it. Wouldn't want to be anywhere near it.
