What we REALLY need is "your guide to the Benghazi cover-up".
If Benghazi had remained a non-story, that WOULD have been a story here at the BLS .... but since it deserves at least s Select Congressional Committee, it is invisible on NPR.

Our little family retail business in Brownsville was nearly wiped out by the '67 riots here in Brooklyn, but look at the difference today between Brooklyn and Newark. At that time New York City was considered the Crime capital of America and nothing could be done about it. Giuliani and Bloomberg proved that idea to be wrong. Now we'll see what happens in the future as the "Progressives" come back to rule or to ruin? Time will tell.

Not only was Corey Booker not a "Newark-er," he is not really a Democrat; his campaigns are funded by Republicans and/or the Corporate Ed Reform movement.
