    ....that occurred in the UK 25 years ago. It's called the Hillsborough Disaster. 96 people died at a soccer stadium, most of them due to the negligence of the police and emergency authorities. The authorities falsified reports and blamed the deaths on rowdy Liverpool FC fans. Very few people cared, right on up to...wait for it, wait for it....Maggie Thatcher. It is only last year that the reports came out because the documents have to become public after a period of time.

    But the only reason there is a commission looking into the matter is because the aggrieved persisted over more than two decades to get it done. This may require a lot of persistence and I wish for the best.

    The GOP jobs plan is to manufacture outrage.
