When some of our most self important robed readers were still in high school (1989) , a brave man named Lee Arthur Lawrence was gunned down in the parking lot of the Grocery store he and his wife owned in West Perrine.
Mr. Lawrence was the type of man most people can only aspire to be. In the midst of a crack epidemic that devastated this town, Mr. Lawrence refused to accept the scourge and fought back, chasing drug dealers off of his property and calling the police. Mr. Lawrence was killed for his beliefs by a drug dealing thug named Bobby Lee Robinson who ordered the murder of Mr. Lawrence.
We learned yesterday that Mr. Lawrence's brave widow has passed away. The Herald article is here.
Trivia question: Who represented Mr. Robinson at trial? What was his blockbuster defense unveiled during opening? And what happened to the lawyer because of the defense? What judge appointed the lawyer and what happened to that judge between the guilt and sentencing phases of the trial?

It was a pleasant 71 degrees this morning about an hour before sunrise as we biked over the Key Biscayne bridge. High today in the mid 80's.
Here's more evidence why that diet soda may be killing you.
DC may be under estimating Obama.....Trump's going to run for president.......and an aide to Jerry Brown, who's running for governor in California, discussed with Brown the possibility of calling his opponent Meg Whitman a ho.
Enjoy the long weekend.
