Stop the violence, stop the hate and stop the bullying!

Via my friend Shannon. This is a subject that brought Eric and I together – the victimization of those who are different in some way. We always said that if there was one single thing that brought us together it was the death of Seth Walsh. We identified with him in a way that is hard to describe.

Apologies to those who VEVO chooses to block.

Statement by the Press Secretary on Journalists Killed or Wounded in Libya.

We were saddened to learn of the death of film director and photographer Tim Hetherington while working in Misrata, and we are deeply concerned about the well being of other journalists who were wounded alongside him. Journalists across the globe risk their lives each day to keep us informed, demand accountability from world leaders, and give a voice to those who would not otherwise be heard. The Libyan government and all governments across the world must take steps to protect journalists doing this vital work. The United States will work to do everything possible to assist those who were injured in getting the care they need. Our thoughts are with these brave journalists and their loved ones.
