well while everyone was out having fun at the News-Press protest I was stuck at home with the flu..sick as a dog...flat on my ass with the chills and a fever..I even approached hypothermia..HYPOTHERMIA! I was hypothermic!!
but even in the throes of influenza, heavily sedated wth Nyquil on the rocks, I had brief moments of clarity..sometimes when the fever breaks, the senses get keener..and Thursday was cool and cloudy and it smelled really good and clean outside...
I tried to gather the strength to even consider to imagine the remote possiblilty that the flu would go away and I'd be flying down the road to the protest, but that didn't happen..
oh, but I was flying alright
so I had to rely on KEYT for the story and videos...they got some good shots of beautiful spirited young folks, singing songs and carrying signs..one dude was playing a conga strapped to the back of another guy..adding some rhythm to a protest is always a good idea!
now, I've said that the News-Press needs a fresh paint job and someone yarnbombed the News-Press building with pink paint and graffiti, but that's not what I meant..still, neither a graffiti vandal nor a reclusive racist billionaire with the social skills of a wet rat could stop the young people from speaking their minds...
SB city council member Cathy Murillo was there, like a mama lion condemning the News-Press headline that used "Illegals" to dehumanize people trying to get driver's licenses..Cathy is the only one of the council with some guts!!
Don Katich, one of Wendy's stooges, isssued a lame statement and blamed Obama for Wendy's racism.. I swear to God, faux-Christian logic is a brain twister!
but the rally was win for the human spirit and I would have been proud to be there..hell I was proud just watching it!
but this ain't about Wendy's free speech rights at all..Wendy has tried to stifle the free speech of people in SB and her employees for years..she won't even let her minions talk to anyone and if they criticize her or her friends, she fires them!! and when's the last time you saw Wendy eating her lunch on the grass?
De La Guerra Plaza, perfectly juxtaposed between City Hall and the News-Press, is now Ground Zero for real immigation reform and calling out yellow journalism and the News-Press...
BOYCOTT THE NEWS-PRESS!! Keep holding their feet to the fire!!
De La Guerra!!! A-A-A-CHOO!
