This story is just one of two high-profile incidents involving Panama.

A country that was under the rule of a drug lord in the 80's, the site of a deadly U-S Invasion and now an apparent tax haven for the super rich.

Mitch Albom: Detroit is not Atlantis, it will not die

Can Washington step in and save Detroit?

Michigan's governor Rick Synder said the Motor City's abysmal financial condition left him no choice but to approve the nation's largest public sector bankruptcy.

Vice President Joe Biden seemed unsure whether the federal government should do anything about it.

"Can we help Detroit. We are now going through it exactly in detail. We had a meeting yesterday just getting a brief on the status. The question is we don't know at this point," Biden told reporters.

Detroit's bankruptcy could spell good-bye for Howdy Doody

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tried to distance the administration from it.

"You have heard leaders in Michigan say, and we believe they're correct, that this is an issue that has to be resolved between Michigan and Detroit and the creditors," Carney said.

Is bankruptcy the only way forward?

Or is the nation standing by while the birth-place of muscle cars and Motown crumbles?

Charles Barkley: On the evidence alone, I think the [Zimmerman] verdict was fair

President Barack Obama made a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room Friday and spoke off the cuff of almost 20-minutes about Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of George Zimmerman.

"When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," Obama said at Friday's White House briefing.

The president's remarks were both personal and reflective upon his own experiences as an African-American male.

Is he opening a dialogue to conversation that needs to be had or is he taking too far?
