Poking The Peacock -

NBC News Chief Steve Capus is stepping down from that position and will be leaving the organization altogether in the near future.

NBC is the target of a lawsuit by George Zimmerman's Defense for maliciously manipulating a tape recording in order to give viewers the false impression that Zimmerman is a racist who shot Trayvon Martin because the juvenile was Black.

Speaking of Zimmerman, a hearing will be held on this coming Tuesday, February 5th, before the judge.

Also of interest to those following the case, Defense has filed a Motion for Specific Discovery.

News Notes From Florida -

All they ever found of Lorraine Hatzakorzian's remains was her head. No one knows what happened to the rest of her. But the authorities did discover who was driving her blue Dodge pickup truck.

# George Zimmerman's lawyer has released what the defense says is a new picture of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Wednesday. Mark O'Mara has filed for a continuance, asking for more time to prepare the case, as it has been a protracted struggle to get prosecutors, who seem to be dragging their feet in slow motion, to turn over evidence.

# An elderly Canadian snowbird couple were found slain inside their Hallandale Beach condo earlier this past month. David Pichosky, 71, and Rochelle Wise, 66, from Toronto were the victims of a double homicide, but the police have not disclosed much information about the circumstances, which has left the couple's neighbors feeling very uneasy.
