He became my friend. He became my brother, and I'm not talking about friend-brother like we cavalierly use the word, I'm talking about a real friend, a real brother. Somebody I shared my dreams and my secrets with, somebody that's been there for me at my lowest point, my darkest hour when nobody wanted to be beside me.

    Nice of Obama to send the family a letter of condolence,
    wish he was as thoughtful to the families of American border guards who lost their lives because of his dumb decision to allow guns to get into the hands of mexican drug lords
