WASHINGTON -- It is easy to understand how everyone in the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case feels.
• Just last week we were patting Sen. Lindsey Graham on the back for his efforts to forge compromise in Washington, but his idea to boycott the winter Olympics in Russia if that country grants asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is unwise. The last American of power to use the Olympic games as a political tool was President Jimmy Carter back in 1980, and that didn't work out too well -- like many of Carter's other initiatives. Graham's idea is a lousy one, which was noted by House Speaker John Boehner.
As this was written, no one knew how the jury would decide the Trayvon Martin case. And no matter what the jury decided, the verdict will surely arouse strong emotions and debates about race, violence and American society.
