The Florida State Attorney’s Office released dozens of photos Thursday that police took of the crime scene, George Zimmerman and other evidence collected early in the investigation into the fatal Feb. 26 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by the neighborhood watch volunteer. Zimmerman has been charged with murder in the shooting, but he argues he fired only in self-defense and has cited the state’s so-called “stand your ground” law.
Feb. 27, 2012: Police photographs taken within hours of the altercation show injuries to shooter George Zimmerman.

I sent this to Canon in the hopes that it might find the right person at the right time… If any of you have ever looked for a professional quality, multi-format film scanner (possible Jorsa) than you know how I feel…
This is less a question than a pleading to Canon engineers… PLEASE develop a top quality film scanner which will scan at least all 120 formats. With Nikon out of the biz and nothing out there producing top quality scans from old and new film, there must be a market. Canon, being an electronics company as well as a camera company, should be able to product something… I know you, the reader of this comment, will not be in a position to help. However, you could forward this to the right people who may understand this great need. (Picture me on my knees begging and pleading for this as soon as possible)
Sincere thanks for anything you can do,
Long time Canon user,
Name and address blah blah blah

My eldest daughter Elayna, known around these parts as YUM CAKES, lassoed her baby-daddy Jeremy this past Sunday!
Bibi Aisha, an 18-year-old woman from Oruzgan province in Afghanistan, fled back to her family home from her husband’s house, complaining of violent treatment. The Taliban arrived one night, demanding Bibi be handed over to face justice. After a Taliban commander pronounced his verdict, Bibi’s brother-in-law held her down and her husband sliced off her ears and then cut off her nose. Bibi was abandoned, but later rescued by aid workers and the U.S. military. After time in a women’s refuge in Kabul, she was taken to America, where she received counseling and reconstructive surgery. Bibi Aisha now lives in the United States.

I shall be in Birmingham Alabama for a meeting on February 18, 2011. That meeting will be on South Bridge Parkway so I may stay in that area or maybe someplace where there is stuff around. I will likely add some additional time to the trip and snoop around with my camera and my thirst. I also usually hit thrift stores and yard sales, though I assume the latter is out of season. Dates may be February 17th, 19th and 20th? I won’t know the precise dates until late January or early February. Can anyone recommend some unique places to see, to eat, to goof off and/or does anyone want to join me for same?
