Hi Folks:

While I don't want to be seen as defending anyone--including Michael 
Vick, :-)    I hear in FB's comments the reality that there are 
injustices in our society.  My experience, like Ed's and not always with 
the "best" behaved folks in the world, bears that out.  How about the 
folks caught up in today's news about the Supreme Court setting aside 
sentences for Crack Cocaine convictions--talk about injustices!!! :-(
