The Opinionated Bitch – On Celebrating American Ignorance

On Celebrating American Ignorance Waiting out the noise of the Trayvon Martin trial verdict seemed prudent in an effort to avoid being emotional. In retrospect, good choice because so much of what I had initially assumed turned out to be dead wrong. I frequently make jokes about living in Hooterville, my nickname for a Blue heart living in a Red State, but virtually seconds after the verdict, this place sounded like a war zone.
