We need to talk about how you didn't read any Federico Garcia Lorca this week.




Never let me lose the marvel 
of your statue-like eyes, or the accent 
the solitary rose of your breath 
places on my cheek at night.

  I am afraid of being, on this shore, 
a branchless trunk, and what I most regret 
is having no flower, pulp, or clay 
for the worm of my despair.

  If you are my hidden treasure, 
if you are my cross, my dampened pain, 
if I am a dog, and you alone my master,

  never let me lose what I have gained, 
and adorn the branches of your river 
with leaves of my estranged Autumn.

If the zoo won't stop kicking me out for hollering at the animals, I will face god and walk backwards into hell.

This webcomic is crucial to understanding my vision for what the world should be. It may be the closest thing to a political manifesto that you'll ever get from me.

Next, let's tear down the statues of Robert E. Lee, or at least outfit the gift shop with rotten vegetables.

"...we were immediately taken before Gen. Lee, who demanded the reason why we ran away; we frankly told him that we considered ourselves free; he then told us he would teach us a lesson we never would forget; he then ordered us to the barn, where in his presence, we were tied firmly to posts by a Mr. Gwin, our overseer, who was ordered by Gen. Lee to strip us to the waist and give us fifty lashes each, excepting my sister, who received but twenty; we were accordingly stripped to the skin by the overseer, who, however, had sufficient humanity to decline whipping us; accordingly Dick Williams, a county constable was called in, who gave us the number of lashes ordered; Gen. Lee, in the meantime, stood by, and frequently enjoined Williams to "lay it on well," an injunction which he did not fail to heed; not satisfied with simply lacerating our naked flesh, Gen. Lee then ordered the overseer to thoroughly wash our backs with brine, which was done."

With the Civil War back in everyone's mind momentarily, it's worth mentioning this is a really good blog.

That looks like the Colma Bart stop. If you think that's bad, try walking around the Richmond station without getting begged for spare change (don't even bother getting more than a one way ticket there unless you want to wait a week to get your money back because their system says you bought the ticket on a stolen card). If you're getting on on the Downtown Berkeley stop expect to fight for a seat or expect to stand up till MacArthur or San Fransisco. And if you want to get off at Fruitvale on New Years, expect to take the bus because they don't stop there on that day anymore due to protesters. If you want to go from one end of the line to the other (any direction), it's about $5, but if you want to get off at the San Francisco Air Port (not even at the end of the line), it's $10...

Hope everyone sleeps well tonight. Sonny Liston rubbed some tiger balm into his glove. Some things you do for money, 

And some you do for love love love

Old Gran now looks over the ocean and hears the fierce bugle of Mars

And the strength of her heart's high devotion is roused for the stripes and the stars

And she raises her voice loud as thunder, that voice which was always obeyed

Saying "boys, cut the rebels asunder with the swords of the Irish brigade."
The meaning of the Confederate flag is best discerned in the words of those who bore it.

Am I awake, is this really happening? We're going to replace the only lifelong abolitionist that we currently have on our money instead of well known shitheel Andrew Jackson?  Am I hallucinating?

KXCI is one of the best things about Tucson. This is a great story about one of our best. Tucson is firme.
