Some nutjob appears to have just flown a plane over Dolores Park and then out over the rest of the Mission District, during the noon hour, trailing a banner reading, "On June 4th There Will Be No Mexicans In California".

It had just better be some kind of protest from within La Raza, or I'm going to be so angry you have no idea. Anybody know anything about this?

Jacob and I had a particularly surreal camping trip this weekend. Suffice it to say that the elements, namely hydrogen and oxygen in a 2:1 ratio, were pitted against us. We'll give you pictures shortly which should illustrate the situation nicely.

p.s. i met these new cats which jacob is not approving of. the punk looking one is fat and terrified of everything. the fluffy one is not at all grey but is varying shades of brown. she's friendly and fluffy. and sort of prissy bitchy. but not in a scratching or biting way. more in a queen-of-the-manor sort of way. she could probably take on bella. but really...you don't want either of them. and neither does my mom. so probably soon they will go to ARF or something.

p.p.s. the hedgehog, on the other hand, is adorable. he sticks his head in toilet paper rolls and then hisses like a steam engine magnified.

It's a movie:

It's a mockumentary about one day when all the Latinos vanish from California, and chaos follows! The Dodgers can't play, but the Lakers can! Crops rot on the vine! Rich people lose their housekeepers!

It is most likely opening on Friday, given the banner you saw, and I think it's playing at the AMC on Van Ness.

So don't be angry.

Oh, good.

I won't be angry. That sounds like kind of a fun movie... perhaps I should look into actually seeing it. Thanks, Sean.

I think the closer you are to the border, the earlier it came out. it's been here in san diego for weeks.

it's gotten mixed reviews though.

Y'all beat me to it. Jonathan Stout just told me about this movie today. I saw your post and got all excited - "I know what it was! I know what it was!" Then I saw that there were already several comments, and rightly assumed that I would not get to be the first to inform you of the true nature of the phenomenon you witnessed. Ay me.
