Since his start in radio news, Trent has won awards from the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, the Nebraska Associated Press, and the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
Rice also serves as the 2009-2010 President of the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
Rice is a native of Plattsmouth, Nebraska. He and his wife Solveig have been married since 2000. They live in Ames where he enjoys golf, reading, movies, music college football, and the heartbreak that comes from being a Minnesota Vikings fan. Trent and Solveig have twin daughters Annika and Kaija and a son, Erik, who shares the same birthday as his sisters, just five years later.
...about the Syrian people, that is.
USA Today reports a new poll that shows not a whole lot of support for the Obama administraton's call for limited military action in Syria after suspected chemical attacks killed 1,429 people. Seems like the only person who thinks we should punish the Assad regime for gassing it's own people is Barack Obama. Intreresting that the opinion of the President of the United States isn't enough to convince his own people (that's us, BTW).
If you're looking for Catch-22 situations here, you're in luck as there are plenty. President Obama's action, or lack there of, after putting chemical weapons on the OTHER side of a red line. Congress hanging with Obama, or hanging him out to dry, in supporting the action...or not. Oh, and all of us. We like to think we live in a country that stands as a beacon of freedom for everyone...when it's convenient for us...or for people we like...or people who look like us...or worship as we do...or...or...or...
A blogger for the Washington Post breaks down the Syrian conflict, and points out some uncomfortable truths about it...and us.
On a totally unreated note...where did shame go? And, go Hawkeyes.
