Visit to Shallowland

The window on the back reads, "Just another family without equal rights..." A statement about gay marriage in California.

The past couple of days I’ve been in Los Angeles visiting a friend.  I decided to snap a couple of photos along the way.  The first was taken of an SUV as I drove over the section of Interstate 5 known as the Grapevine.  This is the mountainous stretch of I-5 in Southern California where it travels from the San Joaquin valley over the mountains into the LA basin.  Unfortunately you can’t see what I really took the photo of, but there is writing on the back window.  The car belonged to a couple of lesbians and their kid.

I dislike the man but respect the office he held.

While in the area I also managed to make my first visit to a Presidential library.  If you can’t figure out which one, scroll your mouse over the photo and read the bar at the bottom of your browser.  TQE often calls this President, “President ‘ketchup is a vegetable’.”

  1. How was the library? They are so hit and miss. The Carter one is kinda’ cruddy – all worn out. But the Truman one is amazing. And the Clinton one — well, the dress and its occupant were only mentioned twice (that we could find).

  2. This same President said that the trees give off more CArbon Monoxide than cars do. Actually, Ronnie, trees emit CArbon Dioxide at night and Oxygen during the day. Cars emit the deadly gas Carbon Monoxide that is causing lung cancer all around the world.
    18 thousand gay couples who were married in California are legal. Now those who marry there are illegal. I guess it is up to the calendar to decide. Come on People Jon and Kate are breaking up we need GAy couples to save the instituion of marriage!

  3. @Disenchanted: The library seemed fine. I was more interested in hearing what my host said about his attending the funeral and what people like the governor of California and others said that didn’t make the camera or news. LOL

    I really didn’t get to see much of the library because we were there on business to pick up a CD of materials for somebody. Still, it looked well maintained and had several exhibits on the Presidency (general), The Reagan Presidency, and Air Force One. The place they planted Ronnie is actually quite nice with a great view. I wish I could be planted somewhere like that when the time comes.

    @Ed: Yes, we need more LEGAL gay marriages. With a 50% heterosexual divorce rate, we couldn’t possibly do worse.
