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.
