In an act of sheer stupidity, film director Spike Lee retweeted a tweet which purportedly contained the address of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin in Florida last month.
Well, as it turned out, the address in question was not that of Zimmerman but that of an elderly couple who had to flee their home in fear for their lives.
Lee subsequently apologized for his actions. But somehow that doesn’t seem to be quite adequate.
Why would he even entertain the idea? What did Lee hope this stunt would accomplish? For someone to drive by and shoot out their windows? Suppose it had been Zimmerman’s address? I don’t think Lee would be apologizing at all. At best, it was an act of mischief. At worst, it was an act of reckless endangerment and incitement. It’s going to take a hell of lot more than an apology to undo the damage he’s done.
Spike Lee did the wrong thing. If he truly wants to do the right thing then he will tell people to leave George Zimmerman alone and let the special prosecutor in Florida do her job without fear and intimidation.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
