    A lot came out at trial, like Zimmerman's comments about "those people" to the 911 dispatcher.  And given the prevailing sentiment, it could have legs.  Of course, the risk in losing would be to further validate Zimmerman as some kind of sick folk hero I guess.

    OT, but where in the North Country?  My son went to school at SUNY Potsdam.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

      in Canton NY, but I teach in Potsdam (at Clarkson).

        Spent the night there once.  And familiar with Clarkson too since it shares a land border with Potsdam State and was Erik Cole's alma mater. Cole was a RW for the Carolina Hurricanes (my home town NHL team) drafted out of Clarkson in 1998 and one of their better forwards for many years.  His brother in law was the admissions counselor that my son and I talked to when we visited the school.  Small world innit?
