I suppose most of you feel like I do on Arizona's new immigration law. I was talking to a beloved family member who said they didn't see anything wrong with it and I asked, "Would you be able to prove that you are in the country legally if asked?" The response was, "Why would I get stopped?" See for me that's not the point - except that it is. In other words, white non-accented people have nothing to worry about. But all those not fitting that description would be stopped frequently and asked to prove their immigration status. That's not a free society. That's an extra burden for anyone having brown skin. Anyway we all know it's hatred of the brown people that is at the root of all this. I didn't plan on visiting Arizona in the near future anyway, but doubly so now.
I'm sure I had other things to mention, but once again the thought evaporating machine has been hard at work. It's gotten so bad that I have to ask every time at the video store if I've already rented the movie that I plan on renting. About half the time the response is affirmative.
We took Georgie over to meet his new uncles yesterday. They live on the plateau (trendy neighborhood) and they are gonna watch him next weekend while we're in New York. They have a cat but there was no altercation of any kind. I bet they might even play together when all is said and done. Oh and we met the new uncles through blogging! One more plus to this whole (coming up on 5 years) exercise. I'd say happy Monday but that's pure oxymorony, so how about here's to a speedy Monday peeps!
