Hello Friends & Supporters
It all started when I was in my early teens. I told my mom that I wanted to go to South Africa in the middle of the US anti-Aparthied movement in which my father and I was apart of. In my high school years I tried to do a paper on what was going on in South Africa for people with disabilities/Deaf and remember this was in the mid 80's before computers. My paper turned out to be a half a page cause I couldn't find enough information on people with disabilities/Deaf in South Africa at that time.
When I was younger (and even now) I watched the Three Stooges and other old shows. I have always loved things from the 19th Century cartoons, songs, TV shows and elders. But, I always loved the Three Stooges. But then another night I was watching Three Stooges and I realized that the show was really racist. The show made black people look stupid and said all kind of racist slurs against different cultures.
Four years ago I met the love of my life. As a 62 year old male bachelor/Hippie Madman, I met the love of my life. We got hitched, I’ll just say our life together is perfect as a saltnpepper low income senior. With senior and disability problems. I am not saying we don’t debate. We do that. Quite loudly sometimes. Outside of that we get along great. As I say, she has spiced up my life.

“A 90-day moratorium on use of force is actually the norm in certain places,” said Lisa Marie Alatorre, of the Coalition on Homelessness. “Even asking SFPD and the city to take this seriously is a way for us of asking everyone to take seriously a paradigm shift in [policing],” Lisa concluded.
