    I figured as much-I studied spanish history specifically the idiocy of Isabella and the banishment of the Jews and the persecution of the "New Christians". I was making an educated guess on Lopez based on my studies of 35 years ago

    Good call on the origins. Though I speak spanish fluently, I am not familiar with Spanish name origins. I would have guessed that Lopez came from Estremedura or Andaluscia as that name is common with Mexicans and most Spanish settlers to Mexico came from those regions.

    I want to apologize for jumping the gun and blaming Obama and his cronies for the shootings at Fort Hood......I will with hold further judgment until all the facts are in....I jumped the gun because I heard the shooter had another name that was Muslim........My prayers go out to the families involved.

    I see something like that as an honest mistake Navy. But it has been interesting watching the speculation in the media, on message boards, and various talking heads, etc. I think some were disappointed that the shooter was not an Islamic extremist; others disappointed that it wasn't some wacko skinhead gun nut or some such. At least the media so far has refrained from referring to him as a 'white Hispanic'. But the bottom line for those injured, those still in danger, and those mourning the loss of their comrades and loved ones, it that is was a cruel and senseless act. And I agree that is where our concerns should lie at the moment.

    The only one to blame is the selfish punk who shot everyone. I suppose you are going to boycott Taco Bell now.
