    This morning's show, April 26, 2012, eight o'clock segment presented comments by a NY Times writer, (?) about the amount of secrecy surrounding the successful raid on Osama bin Ladin. I tuned in after the comments by the writer had begun, so I only got the latter comments. His name, I believe is Michael Carley or Michael Carlin.
    My complaint is how the writer referred to President (of the United States) Obama. Carlin ONLY said: "Obama". Never, President Obama. However-–he said Secretary Gates and Vice-President biden. Is one to conclude that Carley's omited title: President –is due to the race of the respective subjects?
    You, writer/speaker are supremely DISRESPECTFUL to the most powerful man in the world, whether he is black, half- black, half-white, or simply white. I, personally, find your behavior reprehensible.

    I am commenting in reference to the NJ Teacers Busted Misbehavior- I totally understand where this dad is coming from. My child does not have any challenges but was having difficulty with a teacher and I could not seem to get any help from my school system. I had my daugter record the class as well on her phone. After weeks of battle with the principals I finally got my daughter out of that class and that teacher has since disappeared for taking questions off the CRCT exam. The school systems are no longer helpful to the parent and a parent must take things into their own hands and and be vigilantes for their children.
