During the eleven years that I have been delivering speeches at the Riverside City County meetings, I had the honor to meet and know well ex-Councilman Ameal Moore. He died a few days ago.
What a gentleman! What an honest person! What an excellent politician, doing so much for our City!
My friend is with God!

With the death of Communist Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, the big interrogation will be how his successor(s) will handle the country's relationship with the U.S. Venezuela, under Chavez, has been supporting the Cuban regimen, exporting two-third of the gasoline consumed by the Caribbean Island. With Fidel aging and very sick, and Raul having no charisma at all, this event could be the beginning of the end of the Communist domination in Cuba. Will the Army respect the Constitution?

bagpipes. He played during the funeral
services of Officer Ryan Bonaminio.
Ironically, Mac Kay told an AP reporter early in the day:
“This one you just never know if the guy’s going to pop out, or where he’s going to pop out,” Mac Kay said. “We’re hoping this comes to a close without more casualties. The best thing would be for him to give up.” Mac Kay was 15 years with the force. He loved music and sang too. He was very savvy in computers. He cared very much for children, investigating those who were charged of abuse.
Our communities are mourning the death of the heroes, who gave their lives to protect us. We pray for the fast recovery of those who were injured.
