While the George Zimmerman trial should be a call for national reflection over how Stand Your Ground laws work out in reality, the risk is that yet again, it will turn into just another story about what happens in Florida.
A professional pundit was fired because he wrote an opinion piece that was factually inaccurate. Is that even a thing? "Journalists" can get fired for saying things which are false (things that five minutes of fact-checking would have proven laughably wrong), and for other stupid comments?

Within hours in Chile, 33 miners trapped 2,000 feet underground will experience a rebirthday as they are raised to the surface. How will Los 33 fare above ground? What challenges lie ahead? Will their lives ever be the same again?
