I dodged a bullet the other night when Bernadette encouraged me to stay home and watch a movie with her, instead of going to Rocky's Liquor Store to pick up a bottle of wine.
Well, the place was robbed at roughly the time I would have been going over.

FoxNews.com reports on one of the teachers who attended the rally at Pomona College against Janet Napolitano and how those LAUSD organized the protest of the Arizona Law.
Here's a thought. Why don't they work on the absurdly high dropout rates?
Naw, they would rather organize and protest. Have a look at what Fox uncovered.
FoxNews.com has also uncovered e-mails sent by Martinet to a Progressive Educators discussion group that reveal her involvement in a May 16 march to protest Arizona's immigration law and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who gave a commencement speech that day at Pomona College.
In an e-mail to the group on March 15, Martinet listed the demands of the next day's "March and Rally to DHS Secretary Napolitano's Speech at the Pomona College."
1. To Stop the Criminalization of Immigrant Families!
2. No More Deportations and Raids!
3. Stop Using Police to Enforce Immigration Laws!
4. Stop Arizona Now!
5. Pass a Just/Humane Immigration Reform Now!"
The day after the march, Martinet wrote an e-mail directing the group to "a nationwide call for people to converge on Phoenix, Arizona, on May 29 for a National Day of Action."
Three days after the teachers and students caravanned to Phoenix to protest the immigration law, the Los Angeles school district board passed a resolution opposing it. The board said the district would look into curtailing district travel to the district and business with any Arizona-based companies. The school board president called on the superintendent to ensure that students throughout the district are taught that the immigration law is "un-American."
Hours after that June 1 school board meeting, Lara posted on his Facebook wall a link to an article titled, "LAUSD board condemns Arizona Immigration law," along with the comment, "I know what I am teaching tomorrow in class!!!!"
Dean Deb Wood is off to the Middle East, to work for Northwestern University's Qatar campus. I wonder if she'll say the same thing she said when called out for her inane comments: “That is not a job, it is a way of life.” Well, here's to a feminist going to one of the most repressive parts of the world. Something tells me it will be as much fun as Sex and the City 2.
Deb Wood routinely embarrassed Scripps College and the Claremont Colleges with her consistent stupidity. I've only been following that twelve year career for the past three years, but it was pretty embarrassing.
- She called all of the Class of 2010 racist and sexist for inviting DJ Timbo. She thought "White Party" meant that it was run by white people or something, instead of people just wearing white clothes. For her efforts, she garnered a nomination for "Idiot of the Year" from The Washington Post's "Offbeat" column. She encouraged students to stand up for their rights, in shutting down debate she doesn't like.
CLAREMONT - Scripps College announced a new interim dean of students on Friday.
Rebecca Lee will replace vice president and dean of students Debra Wood. Wood on July 1 will leave the school after 12 years.
"I know Bekki will be an effective advocate and counselor for students, and that she will encourage active communication among students and the larger Scripps College community," Scripps College President Lori Bettison-Varga said. "I am looking forward to having such a capable leader on my team."
Lee has almost 30 years of student development experience. She has expertise in academic advising, residential life, supporting as well as promoting diversity and career counseling.
"I am delighted to have the opportunity to partner with staff, faculty, trustees, alumnae-and most important-students, to contribute to a campus environment of support, exploration and growth," Lee said.
Scripps College spokesman Steve Sabicer said no immediate welcoming would be held for Lee because there is not a lot of faculty on campus during summer."We'll probably do something in August," Sabicer said
