Day by Day

I enjoyed the recent Day by Day mentioning my Russian Jewish descent brother, Oleg Volk. Today's DbD is even better, and
makes a hell of a point.

On a related note, I HATE bullies. I logically, therefore, want equal rights for Every Damn Body: straight, gay, male, female, intersex or indeterminate, red, yellow, black, white, pink and purple polka-dotted, I care not. As long as you follow the laws and only have consensual partners who are of age, I don't care who you have sex with. I further don't care who, what or even if you worship, as long as you don't feel the need to force your beliefs on others (and if you feel the need to cut pieces of your young children, I will be Most Displeased with you). And as long as you do your job, well, I could care less which shade of the rainbow you most closely resemble.

No country is perfect, but it appears to me that the US is one of the countries closest to this ideal. I would like to believe we can one day make it so, for all people, as I also understand that most people are too busy being afraid to allow others to choose their destiny without interference.

Did I mention that I HATE bullies?

Love that DbD cartoon.

Great picture of you - sushi is Ambrosia.

You and I agree on a lot. Live and let live, except for bullies - I'm all for the oppression of bullies.

Yeah, I like Imogen Heap, too. I jokingly call small dogs "blender dogs", but "doglet" works, too.

And good shoes...rock!

you need to check out - I've bought husband some great shoes from them, and I have oodles of that brand myself - funky. Thanks for posting your email - I'll email you tomorrow and see what you could use some more of. I'm glad you got a good haul of stuff in time for Easter, and I'm glad you're being generous with the other folks over there with you. I hope you all know that countless millions of people here love and support you, whether you ever hear from them or not. You're in our hearts.
