Happy Mandela Day!


Today's the day the world marks Mandela's remarkable achievements:
The day was unanimously approved in 2009 by the U.N. General Assembly. It was created to honor Mandela and inspire others to carry on his efforts to "take responsibility for making the world a better place, one small step at a time," according to a statement from the Nelson Mandela Foundation Initiative.
Seems like we're going to hail in a handbasket, what with all the crazy news stories of death and destruction in hot spots around the globe.  

Still, every day we step forward in a positive way -- however small or seemingly insignificant -- we make a difference.

Make a difference today.

GW, what say you? Other than finding a cure or vaccine, how would you lower the infection rate?

Anyone figure why Hector Lombana is running Victoria Ferrer against Judge Nuria Saenz? Why did he recruit Veronica Diaz? Rumor is he also ran Johnny against Judge Teretha Thomas. Seriously an ethical dilemma for a Florida Bar member and JNC member. Truly resembles a mob tactic. Is Centorino looking?

Boo hoo. Everyone likes the system until they don't like it. Process is corrupt. Banana republic. Hector labamba is a local shark in a small, dirty pool.
