Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Strange Bedfellows in San Francisco

If you think you understand the gay marriage issue, what is happening in a federal court in California may surprise you. Under the limelight of that court, many are retreating or changing their stories.

Opponents of California`s Proposition 8, the amendment to the state constitution that bans gay marriage, have brought suit in U.S. District Court on the grounds that it violates the rights of gays under the U.S. Constitution.

Judge Vaughn Walker attempted to put the trial on YouTube, which would have been a first. However, the U.S. Supreme Court put a swift end to that idea.

Immigration Woes (Gringo Ir a Casa)

Immigration reform has been in the news lately. On my recent Mexican vacation, I saw the seriousness of the problem from the other side of the border fence.

Tens of millions of folks from north of the border are crossing into Mexico every year. A million Americans are living there, more than half illegally.

Many Americans move to Mexico because of its high quality, inexpensive health care system. Drugs are widely available and inexpensive. Drug dealers, called "farmacias," are on every street corner, anxious to sell the addict anything she thinks she needs.
