SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles®Every day and every hour, we at The Adobo Chronicles® wave our magic wand to scan the world of news in the hope of shining the spotlight on things that are obvious, or not so obvious.

Then, our writers get right to work, putting their best spin — sometimes ridiculous, oftentimes funny, and occasionally offensive — in order to make sense (or not) of the topic at hand.

Next, we decide on the punchline for our news delivery.

It was business as usual yesterday. The top news was, of course, the shooting of nine people in a predominantly black church congregation in South Carolina allegedly by a 21-year-old white man.

It didn’t take long for our newsroom staff to decide on our punchline, which is …

NONE.

This is as crystal clear as black and white.

Our thoughts and prayers to the victims and families of this racist attack.
