Cali Bi-Partisan Politics

Schwarzenegger, Villaraigosa Forge an Unlikely Partnership
/The two politicians find common ground in a mutually beneficial relationship that could pay off at the polls...

/"We genuinely get along," Villaraigosa said of Schwarzenegger during a break from a packed schedule of meetings with legislators. "He's been very supportive of my administration."

/Villaraigosa, who took office 10 months ago and is limited to two terms, faces reelection in 2009, a little more than a year before the 2010 gubernatorial election. Those closest to the mayor say his ambitions extend far beyond City Hall. Friends and colleagues alike wonder how high he may rise, even throwing around job titles in idle conversation: Gov. Villaraigosa? Sen. Villaraigosa? Cabinet member Villaraigosa?

"Everyone knows that Antonio has a bright future and is going to go somewhere else," said City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel. "The question is, where?"

Villaraigosa isn't telling, at least not yet. When asked if he wanted Schwarzenegger's job, he responded: "Who would want to be governor when you can be the mayor of Los Angeles? This is a great job."

I'm all for PRESIDENT VILLARAIGOSA.

Little bit ago, there was a protest at UCLA re: affirmative action, the same day as a LA Mayor's election debate. Villaraigosa was the only candidate to call for the students to be heard, and prevented their arrest which I found pretty damn cool.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…
