The rioting in Baltimore is disturbing to all Americans, as the unresolved cause of Freddie Gray’s death[baltimoresun.com] while in police custody should be, as well.

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider whether to overturn the marriage laws of all the states—as some activist federal judges have already done in some of the states–conservatives are naturally calling for judicial restraint. We must warn the court against another exercise of “raw judicial power” like that handed down with its infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

About two weeks ago Oklahoma Thunder power forward Kevin Durant became the recipient of the National Basketball Association’ “Most Valuable Player” award for the 2013/14 NBA season. His graceful and gracious acceptance speech was seen live by millions and has been viewed on the internet multiple millions of times since. K.D.’s speech was emotional –at times heart wrenching- as he freely gave credit for his award away to fans, coaches and teammates. It was a class act by a seemingly class guy.
