SNIPPET OF THE DAY – AT 9:12 A.M. ET:
A nursery school teacher in Mexico has been hailed a hero after a video showed her calmly instructing her pupils to duck and cover and sing songs as a fierce gun battle raged outside their school. A certificate presented by the governor of the northern state of Nuevo Leon said teacher Martha Rivera Alanis showed "outstanding civic courage" in her steady performance during the Friday gunfight in the northern industrial hub of Monterrey.
I can just envision the CD: "Songs to sing while your neighbors are killing each other." What a sad commentary on what is happening in Mexico.
