Think this is far fetched? Think folks don't really pick their political party association or presidential candidates based on what actors say? Guess again. Want proof? Read my personal account from the 2004 election: Undhimming this...
The Act to Prohibit the Importation of Slaves was implemented 200 years ago today. The Thirteenth Amendment, which officially abolished involuntary servitude in the United States, was not passed for another 57 years.
According to Michael Josephson, president of the Josephson Institute of Ethics, the mayor is wrong:
“It is a very fundamental principal of journalistic credibility that you don’t have entangling alliances of people you cover."
Of course, Villaraigosa is referring to his girlfriend, who scooped everyone on the demise of his 20-year marriage, calling it a "politcal scandal" and confirming that the "rumors were true." She left out the important detail that she was the rumor, a fact she later confirmed to the LA Times--instead of declining to comment.
In vouching for her "professionalism," the mayor acknowledged that Salinas had asked to be removed from the City Hall beat a year ago, revealing a long term relationship about which he had previously declined comment.
Heh. I guess the professional working girl was tired of being kept in the closet.
He faces 30 days in jail, a $1,500 fine and a damaged reputation for doing as he was told.
Lee's essay reads in part, "Blood, sex and booze. Drugs, drugs, drugs
are fun. Stab, stab, stab, stab, stab, s...t...a...b...puke. So I had
this dream last night where I went into a building, pulled out two P90s
and started shooting everyone, then had sex with the dead bodies. Well,
not really, but it would be funny if I did."
"In creative writing, you're told to exaggerate," Lee said. "It was
supposed to be just junk. ... There definitely is violent content, but
they're taking it out of context and making it something it isn't."
Per usual, I'm not in favor of lawsuits. But I hope this student's family sues the asses off the school and law enforcement agency.
If they seriously think he needs mental help, they need to make sure he gets it.
But the day we start locking innocent people up for their thoughts is the day our streets are empty.
Update: If you'd like to share your safety concerns about the students at CGHS, they have a form on their website. I wonder if those get to anyone that matters though.

Gov. Jon S. Corzine was apparently not wearing his seat belt as required by law when his official SUV crashed into a guard rail, leaving the governor hospitalized in critical condition, a spokesman said Friday.
A state trooper was driving Corzine to a meeting between Don Imus and the Rutgers women's basketball team Thursday night when another vehicle, swerving to avoid a pickup truck, hit the governor's SUV and sent it into the guard rail on the Garden State Parkway.
The crash broke the governor's leg, six ribs, his sternum and a vertebrae. Authorities were searching for the pickup truck driver blamed for causing it.
I can't be the only one who thinks that the state trooper who almost killed the governor should give him a citation for not wearing his seat belt?
What ever happened to leaders leading by example? Are there any who don't put themselves above the law? Besides Sheriff Kocken in Wisconsin?
