Yahoo! News Story - Killings of students shock Newark
Cory Booker should be given credit for making the best of a seemingly irretrievable situation. His taking the job of mayor in Newark, N.J. appears to be the equivalent of launching a hopeless search and rescue mission. The man has courage, something rarely seen in this political age. If as his detractors claim, he's an opportunistic political climber, I'd say that he'll definitely have earned whatever they believe he's after by the time he exits the position of mayor in Newark.
