    I thought Jefferson was wondering why he wasn’t on a plantation.

    According to The Smoking Gun, Charles Ramsey has three domestic violence convictions, and there’s some claim that two other neighbors were there helping the ladies before he arrived on the scene.

    The point being there is no such thing as a hero, only flawed people who do something seemingly heroic. As for your dirty laundry, didn’t your mother tell you to always wear clean underwear?

    I understand folks haven’t been treating this bloke very kindly, as I read this open letter addressed to him and reprinted in the UK Guardian newspaper:


    An open letter to Charles Ramsey from a fellow Cleveland resident


    “I write this with extreme gratefulness because I know how this country has made a mockery of and torn down men like you”


    Tch, tch, what on earth have you folks been doing to this man to warrant such a strong defence?

    OMQ: I think that your description that “this bloke hasn’t been treated very kindly” is way off base. He’s been hailed as a hero, or at least a stand up guy, by practically everyone, including “evil right wing talk radio”. Plus, the guy’s irreverently funny.

    The problem is that sites like The Smoking Gun has revealed his past. He’s become a publc figure, and that’s fair game. He served time for spousal abuse, etc. Still, most people I know, and have heard, have expressed how this is an example of redemption, not condemnation.

    The only problem, as I see it, is that we would have like Mr. Ramsey to have been a “knight in shining armor”, but unfortunately he turned out to be a “knight in tarnished armor”. But I don’t see many people making much of a fuss about it, as you claim.

    The only thing I didn’t like— and hey, it’s must be his life experience, so I’m not condemning him— was when he said (paraphrasing) “I knew something was wrong when a white woman ran into the arms of a black man”. There are plenty of white women married to black men. Additionally, I see white women walking arm in arm, or just with, black men all the time on the street. I wonder how they feel about this statement. (It could be construed as racist, you know.)

    maybe if there were more people who were willing to “drop a dime” and call the police we could have stopped the Boston Bombing.

    Maybe if there was a greater support of the local police to enforce low level fraud and crimes the Borton Bombers would have been in jail on other charges or deported back to their own terrorist filled countries before they could make WMDs to use against defenseless children and women.

    God grant that lovely pleasure to you, too; if you’re so jealous or people on death row.

    Ken “punctures balloons filled with the lightweight gas of liberal idealism” That’s nice. It’s better than dredging through the conservative cesspool of Hate, Fear, and Greed.
