President Barack Obama today called again for "peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson," addressing for the second time the police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown and the violent clashes between police and protesters that have ensued. "Let us remember we are all part of one American family," Obama said in a short address from Martha's Vineyard, where he is vacationing. "We are united in common values and that includes belief in equality under the law, basic respect for public order and the right of peaceful protest"/St. Louis Post-Dispatch. More here.
