    Being a tech article, I would strongly urge you to change the phrase "Dell Optiplex GX-150 CPUs" to something more like Dell Optiplex GX-150 desktops, as a CPU (Central Processing Unit) is meant to refer to a processor chip, not a computer in its entirety. It'd be the equivilant of calling a car's "ECU" or "engine" alone, a "car." Just throwing it out there... :)

    I think the entire USA was outraged with the way the Trayvon Martin case was tried by the Florida State Attorney's office. We saw how gerrymandering, nepotism and croynism can have devastating effects on a community. Is this the best the State of Florida can do. Would you want the State of Florida to defend you or would want to select your own attorney(s) especially in a high profile case? Clearly, the Florida State Attorneys office was overmatched by the defense attorney and his team of lawyers. How many other States have the same problems?

    The Trayvon Martin never had a chance to defend himself or a choice of a competent lawyer.
