"Royal Baby on the Way"... Actor Dennis Farina Dead at 69... George Zimmerman Saves Family of Four in Florida Car Crash... NY Food Stamp Recipients Ship Food Home to Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic...

RUSH: Last week I offered an opinion of my own in the aftermath of the verdict.... What I said was that the left was not really invested in Trayvon Martin.

RUSH: The defense never has to prove anything. It's all up to the prosecution, and they didn't make the case.
