● Wisconsin's football opponent today is Wofford College. Wofford College? I had to look it up just to find out where the school is located.
● I'm always amazed when people are amazed when they get parking tickets. I will grant you that sometimes it's a little difficult to determine when it's legal to park somewhere, but if you make it a habit of not making sure you are legally parked you are going to keep getting tickets.
● Is race the reason people are out so raucously demonstrating against Pres. Obama's proposed healthcare revisions? I'm sure that's an underlying factor for some of them. But I really think that for a majority it's not that they can't accept a black man in the White House. It's because they can't accept a liberal in the White House. For thirty or forty years, liberals have been so demonized by the right that some people think that liberal policies are "un-American," or that they're socialist. Well, they're not. A majority of the voters put Obama in the White House because they, we, have had enough of the conservatives' failed policies. We voted for a real change in the direction of this country, and the conservative minority had better get used to it.
Three years ago, back when I was writing detailed posts about my activities, I described my experiences at the annual dinner of the LGBT Law Assn. (LeGaL), on whose board I continue to sit. In fact, I am now secretary of the association, and vice president of the LeGaL Foundation. The post was entitled "Judges on the dance floor?", and I related how my image of the judiciary had been radically altered by seeing judges dancing. I asked "can anyone imagine [US Supreme Court Justice] Ruth Bader Ginsburg doing the frug?"
Well, I don't know about Justice Ginsburg and the frug, but there is video evidence of newly-seated Justice Sonia Sotomayor (awkwardly) salsa dancing.
Hi! I'm Caprice Bellefleur, a 64 year old retiree enjoying life in the Big Apple. I'm a mixed-gender male-bodied person. This makes me a transgender person, trans for short. If you call me a crossdresser, I won't object, but crossdressing is just an activity I do to express part of my identity. This blog contains slices of the life of someone who crossdresses, but it's not about crossdressing per se. I hope you enjoy it--and leave a comment!
