Further, racism and injustice are strongest when they give the appearance of their absence.

As a Latina I would like to believe that in the United States a person of color could reach the highest elected position in the land. Alternet apparently believes people in power do not want this.

I have the pleasure of my grandson's company along with that of his cousin. After much cajoling from me, they have begun to clean up their part of the world. Yeah!

Broader Privilege Claimed In Firings - washingtonpost.com

Broader Privilege Claimed In Firings - washingtonpost.com

I never thought that I'd be so ashamed over the behavior of a person who came from a Latino/Mexicano background; however, the shameless behavior of Alberto Gonzales and the president who runs his life comes close to shaming many of us. Thinking members of society can see the arrogant misuse of power conducted by this administration in many areas.

Where are the so called "values" these people tout? I think that power has corrupted the souls of Bush, Gonzales, and many others in the administration. The delusion of the public seems complete for it does not rise against the administration's misconduct and of course the underlying reasons are that too many people like what power they derive from the administration. No one it seems takes their oaths of office seriously, for no one person considers the needs of the country.

Post California

The cool beach coast breezes are far behind and I am back in the desert. Since leaving CA I have begun a new travel store where friends can log on and book their travel itineraries. The search engine is quite good and I like the savings those booking both air and hotel can get. I'm fairly positive about this. In fact, I've been feeling positive about a good many things lately.

The Guadalupe campus of South Mountain Community College is really cool. I liked it and the people I met there.

Filled out papers at the main campus of the college and am set to work beginning 8/21/07.
