In memorium, Maybelle Schein

In memory of life: Last week, 75-year old South Dakota resident Maybelle Schein was murdered brutally in her home.

I did not know this woman, but in my heart the world's loss reverberates.

The sad details are tastefully but informatively provided by

In the news: Last Saturday, a 41-year old man was arrested in Wisconsin. He confessed to the killing and made threats indicating he had planned an attempt to assassinate our 44th and current President Barack Obama.

The suspect is currently being held by authorities.

Update:  Dane County denies mental competency exam for suspect.

As if to taunt us, the self-proclaimed 'Script Kiddies' virtually carried out this man's mission in the cyber world last Monday. Obtaining unauthorized access to the Fox News 'FoxNewspolitics' Twitter feed, the 'Script Kiddies' demonstrated their misguided misinformation campaign through six tweets.

Their second misinformation tweet:
@BarackObama has just passed. Nearly 45 minutes ago, he was shot twice in the lower pelvic area and neck; shooter unknown. Bled out.

In my heart: When faced with the distress of violence or intended violence, two great non-violent defenders of the past come to mind; Mohandas Karamchand Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr.

I am never prouder than when I think of those who came before me marching for peace on the streets of great nations.

Hypothesis: With vigilant commitment to peaceful defense, civil liberties are protected.

Future work: We shall overcome.
