A couple quick things...

Wow. I never post this much in a week. But this week's special.

Out in Arizona, a white male radio show host calling himself "Jon Justice" ranted against a Latina public defender named Isabel Garcia, then ranted against immigrants and Latinas in general, then acted as if he were sexually assaulting a pinata with Garcia's face on it. So guess who's at risk of losing their job? That's right, Isabel Garcia. Jon Justice wants her dismissed from her job as a public defender because she participated in a protest he didn't like, and an investigation's going forward now. WOC PhD details the events in question and provides a long list of contacts who, if a little pressure is applied, may help Garcia out. Click the link to see.

Some of you may notice that Sinead O'Connor's nude backside is back up. (For newer readers, this served as my logo during 2006.) The sea goddess will be back soon enough--I like her, too--but some people may be paying me a visit, people who want to cherry-pick all manner of wrongness from this blog, and I'd like to really give them something worth seeing for their trouble. Come to think of it, that's why Sinead was there before, and then I just got attached to the picture! (Can't imagine why.) The original painting is called "Strange Days" and is by Jim Kilpatrick; you can learn a bit more about it here.

Oh, and Kanye was good and my brother's getting better.

Just had to say: I love the new logo, you oughtta keep it! :D

Thanks, y'all! :-) Jon "Justice" really needs to have a learning experience, and quickly. The fact that Garcia's worried about her job and not him pisses me off royally.

Connie, I hope one of us is happy after the Glen. You're right, we both have a good shot of seeing that!

Daisy, L'Ailee hate-hates the logo, and I promised her it would be down within two weeks this time. Male crushes are no problem for her; female crushes are a different story. But glad you like it anyway.

That was your header when I first met you, and I loved it so much I saved it away on my back-up hard drive. I missed it, though I can't blame your beloved for her jealousy!

This jerk in AZ rates one notch above that one from my home state, and equally with a Savage and that other jerk from AZ who's running for Bush/Cheney's poxy-proxy.

Very happy to hear about your brother!!!
