AS WH AR IT--"",


We wish everyone a safe and
happy 4th of July. We hope every-
one spends some time with their
families. We'd like to share a quote
from Erma Bombeck about the all-
American holiday:
"You have to love a nation that
celebrates its independence every
July 4, not with a parade of guns,
tanks, and soldiers who file by the
White House in a show of strength
and muscle, but with family picnics
where the kids throw Frisbees,
the potato salad gets iffy, and the
flies die from happiness. You may
think you have overeaten, but it is


patriotism."

New York Magazine published a
travel article about Tampa titled,
"Skip the Beach in Tampa." The
article began, -"After decades of
suburban sprawl, this Gulf Coast
city has brought new life to its
neglected center by fixing up the
riverfront, repurposing abandoned
spaces, and embracing its Cuban-
American history."
All we can reply is, "God, we hope
so." Wouldn't it be nice to think
that travelers to Tampa were com-
ing here for our riverfront, history,

could, but Tampa has to not only
sell it, but develop it. Our tourist
dollars continue to be focused on
sports, conventions and one-day
events. Our airport is getting better
at selling local Tampa, but it still
features a lot of beach scenes. The


cruise crowd will get off the boat to
explore Key West, but doesn't seem
to care about Tampa.
As far as developing cultural and

Celebrate America's Independence


this Fourth ofJuly


In 1884, Deland, Florida
hosted a Fourth of ]ul\
Parade. Deland was origi-
nally known as Persim-
mon Hollow, named for
the persimmon trees that
grew wild in the area. It
was settled in 1874 by Cap-
tion John Rich. In 1876,
baking soda king Henry
Addison DeLand, from
New York, visited and
bought the land. The city
was officially incorporated
in 1882 and was the first
cit' in Florida to have elec-
tricity. In this photo, the
city is alive with promise.
A freeze in 1885
destroyed crops and Mr.
DeLand returned to the
north. Note the number of
stars on the flag.
Movies fans will appre-
ciate Adam Sandler's 1999
film, The \\aterloit, was
filmed here.

Fallo hist6rico en EE.UU. para parejas gay


Un gran ambiente de ce-
lebraci6n se vivi6 afuera de la
Corte Suprema de Justicia al
pronunciar veredictos que otor-
gan una double victoria a las pa-
rejas homosexuals legalmente
casadas.
El primer fallo concedi6 a
las parejas del mismo sexo le-
galmente casadas los mismos
beneficios federales que las
parejas heterosexuals. Una
provision de la Leyde la De-
fensa del Matrimonio (DOMA),
que impedia que las parejas
gay recibieran beneficios en te-
mas de impuestos, seguros de
salud y retiro, queda por tanto
sin efecto.
Las parejas homosexuals
casadas pueden ahora deducir
sus impuestos, cobrar compen-
saciones si eran miembros del
Ej6rcito, entire otros beneficios.
Cinco jueces votaron a favor
y cuatro en contia. El juez An-
thony Kennedy escribi6 la opi-
ni6n de la mayoria.
Minutos despues la Corte
Suprema deliver en un segun-
do caso y desestim6 la "Pro-

Ben & Jerry's regala dinero en una


plaza de NY para denunciar corruption

'^ ^ ,. \^ __ VM EK(tJZ1'


Ben Cohen, el cofundador de la cofiocida empresa de helados Ben & Jerry's, se instalo
el martes durante dos horas en una plaza de Nueva York para regular a los transeuntes
cientos de billetes de d6lar en los que imprimi6 mensajes contra la corrupci6n en
Washington. "En Estados Unidos no tenemos buenas regulaciones medioambientales
o political energeticas y todo es porque las grandes corporaciones estin pagando a'los
politicos para que no se aprueben leyes que mejoren la situaci6n", dijo el empresario
y activist. La miquina, en la que se puede ver una gran careta de un hombre al que
de manera intermitente le sale un fajo de billetes por la boca, va imprimiendo en los
billetes de d6lar lemas como "No utilizarse para sobornar a politicos" o "Imprime tu
dinero para sacarlo de los politicos". La campafia lucha contra la controvertida decision
tomada en 2010 por el Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos, que permiti6 la creaci6n
de los llamados "superPACs", organizaciones que pueden captar fondos ilimitados de
personas y empresas para canalizarlas a objetivos politicos.

(Viene de la paigina 1)
Recuerdo los primeros afios
al mudarme a Estados Unidos.
Estaba aqui, pero me sentia
ajena, extranjera, "legal alien"
(IY c6mo me molestaba!).
Muchas veces me pregunt6:
jY que hago yo aqui? No ha-
Sbia respuesta. Solamente re-
cordaba que el mapa que me
habia trazado zarparia rumbo
a Barcelona, en miras de un
posgrado, con beca debajo del
brazo. Pero no, las picardias de
la vida y los planes del Cosmos
me arrastraban al norte, y no
al este. Cupido me salpic6 de
amor y el barco hizo un giro
de 180 grades. Trece anfios des-
pues, tengo otra bandera clava-
da en el pecho.
La soledad me laceraba cada
fibra de la existencia.'El.ajuste
era tan duro y tan diametral-
mente opuesto a mis races,
especialmente en el norte del
pals, donde las sonrisas esca-


san y el frio me colmaban de
hastio. Las barreras iniciales
del idioma, las discriminacio-
nes intermitentes, la rudeza de
la mirada del que mira al inmi-
grante .de soslayo. Fue duro,
muy duro. Me llen6 de amar-
guras e ira, protegiendo a cada
instant mi dignidad.
Cuando iba de vacaciones a
Venezuela, al aterrizar, la lluvia
de mis ojos comenzaba a rodar
rio abajo de la emoci6n. Era
alivio, un profundo alivio... al
saber que ali perteriecia, que
alli naci, que alih era bienveni-
da... que alli me esperaban mis
series amados... mi gente... mi
idioma.:. mi pueblo y su inmor-
tal calidez.
Asi fue por unos 7 afios.
Paulatinamente, todo fue cam-
biando... Yo fui cambiando.
Los demds cambiaron. Los
malabarismos del tiempo y la
costumbre fueron amortiguan-
do todo aquello que extrafiaba.


El estar mds de 10 dias lejos de
mi nueva patria se transform
en una suerte de suplicio. A
los 12 afios, finalmente excla-
m6: "This is home (este es mi
hogar)". Por ende, la quiero, la
honro, la respeto, y me impor-
ta. Fue entonces cuando decide
ser ciudadana, no antes.
Algunas veces, emerge una
pequefia crisis de identidad:
me confundo, me siento apd-
trida o siento que no perte-
nezco a nadie sino al mun-
do, a Dios y a mi misma. No
obstante, siempre que miro a
lo alto la bandera roja, azul
y blanca, con un mont6n de
estrellitas, sonrio. Ya no soy
extranjera, ni ajena, ni una
"extraterrestre legal". Este es
mi pals, mi hogar, mi presen-
te, mi patria... Mi patria natal,
la llevo en la sangre; es mia...
Venezuela es mi madre patria
y Estados Unidos, el padre
patrio. Mios las dos.













"La bandera es la encar-
naci6n, no del sentimiento,
sino de la historic". Woodrow
Wilson (el vigesimo octavo
President de Estados Uni-
dos)
La bandera de una naci6n
no es un trapo, ni un logo, ni
un adomo, much menos un
articulo decorative. Es, por el
contrario, un emblema sagrado
que acoge el patrimonio cultural
del pueblo al que represent.
Por ello, existen ciertos protoco-
los, que mis allay de reglas, sos-
tienen, en esencia, la etiqueta
con la cual la preciada bandera
recibe su debido respeto. Entre
ellos:
La bandera no debe ser
usada con fines decorativos.
La bandera nunca debe
tocar el suelo o ningin otro
objeto. Debe ser entregada y
recibida mano a mano.
No debe ser usada como un
disfraz o como uniform.
En una ventana, la bandera
deberia colgar de forma vertical
con las estrellas a la izquierda
para aquellos que miran la casa
desde afuera hacia adentro.
Nunca cuelgue la bandera vol-
teada o de espaldas.
No debe ser usada como so-
porte para trasladar, entregar,
cargar ningfin objeto.
No debe ser impresa en
articulos como cojines, man-
teles, servilletas, cajas, pa-
fluelos o ninguin otro obje-
to que vaya a ser desechado
posteriormente.
La bandera debe ser lavada
cuando sea necesario y reem-


La bandera: un emblema sagrado impregnado por la idiosin-
crasia y el patrimonio cultural del pueblo al que represent.


plazada cuando este demasiado
deteriorada. Cuando ello su-
cede, debe ser quemada digna
y respetuosamente.
Cuando se expone la ban-
dera a media asta, primero debe
izarse a la altura complete y
luego bajarla a media asta.
La bandera es la madre y el
padre del pueblo. Somos todosy
cada uno, unidos por el sentido
de la identidad y la patria, de la
pertenencia.
Significados de la bandera de
Estados Unidos
La bandera de Estados Uni-
dos estd representada por los
siguientes tres colors y sus
respectivos principios:
El rojo: valor y valentia; el
blanco: pureza e inocencia; y el
azul: vigilancia, perseverancia
yjusticia.
Asimismo, las franjas hori-
zontales hacen alusi6n a las
13 primeras colonies britini-
cas fundadas en territorio es-
tadounidense. Las 50 estrellas


simbolizan a cada uno de los
estados del pais.
El 14 de junio de 1777, el
Congress Continental adopt
la resoluci6n mediante la cual
aprob6 el diselo de la bandera
de Estados Unidos, ano en el
cual se llevo por primera vez
al combat en la batalla de
Brandywine.
"Generalmente los colo-
res de una bandera tienen la
saz6n del esfuerzo de su civili-
zaci6n, su pueblo. Demuiestra
el respeto a la patria, el es-
fuerzo y el sudor del costo
en la creaci6n de un pais.
Significa sacrificio y triunfo
para alcanzar ser una naci6n.
Muchas veces tienen sangre,
tierra y fuego; naturaleza y
religion. Muchas han sido
hiladas por mujeres en plena
batalla e izadas por hombres
moribundos en las guerras".
Mercedes Quintero-Terife.

Unidos de America!

Vencen los Rowdies pero
son eliminados
A pesar de la victoria como
visitante de 2-1 ante los Atlan-
ta Silverbacks, los Tampa Bay
Rowdies fueron eliminados
de la lucha para ser sede del
'Soccer Bowl' ya que no pue-
den alcanzar al actual lider
Carolina RailHawks, que tiene
19 puntos, para ganar la tem-
porada NASL Primaveral.
Los Silverbacks fueron
tdesplazados del primer lu-
gar ante casi 6 mil asisten-
tes en el Atlanta Silverbacks
Park cuando dos penales al
comienzo del segundo tiem-
po condujeron a los Rowdies
a una delantera que nunca
perdieron, a pesar de que el
mediocampista de Atlanta,
Pablo Cruz, consigui6 anotar
mediante un tiro libre en el
minuto 62 para marcar el de-
finitorio 2-1.
El bilgaro Georgi Hristov y
Mike Ambersley anotaron los
penales para los Rowdies en
los minutes 50 y 59, por ese
orden. "Todo merito a Atlanta,
que realmente presion6 todo
el tiempo, pero pienso que no-
sotros jugamnos muy bien", in-
dic6 el tecnico de los Rowdies,
Ricky Hill. "Tengo que recono-
cer a nuestros jugadores por
haber conseguido finalmente
los tres puntos", agreg6.


El tecnico de los Silver-
backs, Brian Haynes, sefial6:
"Si le das a un equipo dos go-
les en cualquier liga result
muy dificil darle vuelta al par-
tido y tenemos que culparnos
a nosotros mismos por la de-
rrota. No jugamos inteligente-
mente y eso determine que los
en-rrores vinieran", concluy6.
Restandoles un solo parti-
dos por jugar en la tempora-
da, los campeones de la NASL
2012, despues de un receso
este fin de semana, jugaran -
ya sin esperanzas de campeo-
nar el traditional partido del
4 de julio frente a Ft. Lauder-

La Declaraci6n de Indepen-
dencia de los Estados Unidos,
el mas important document
politico de su tiempo, fue re-
dactada por Thomas Jeffer-
son, Benjamin Franklin, John
Adams, Roger Sherman y Ro-
bert R. Livingston y adoptada
en el II Congreso Continental
el 4 dejulio de 1776 por 53 de-
legados. Trece aflos despues,
35 de ellos figuraron entire los
firmantes de la Constituci6n.
El nftcleo de la vanguar-
dia revolucionaria nor-
teamericana estuvo
formado por George
Washington, Thomas
Jefferson, John Adams,
Madison y Alexander
Hamilton, quienes ejer-
cieron el poder sin com-
partirlo durante los 24
afios siguientes. George
Washington fue primer
mandatario en dos pe-
riodos: 1789-1796. Sus
sucesores fueron John
Adams, Thomas Jeffer-
son y James Madison.
En su primer man- Johi

cuatro personas (actualmente
lo integran 14), dos de ellos,

Hist6ricos e historic de la patria


Edward Snowden, exempleado de la CIA, ha puesto al
descubierto el ciber espionaje de esa agencia guberna-
mental. Las autoridades federales acusan al ex agent
de espionaje y rob0 de propiedad del Gobiemrno. Cada
cargo podria suponer unos 10 afios de encarcelamiento.


I
El gobiemrno de Estados Uni-
dos ya comenz6 el process de
extradici6n de Edward Snow-
den, el empleado subcontrata-
do de la Agencia Nacional de
Seguridad (NSA, por sus siglas
en ingles), y a esos efectos, se
ha comunicado con las auto-
ridades de Hong Kong. Como
recordardn, Snowden hizo pu-
blico un program secret de la
agencia de inteligencia conoci-
do como "PRISM", que consis-
tia en un program de escu-
chas masivas a ciudadanos.
Segun fuentes de la Casa
Blanca, ellos consideran que
los cargos presentados son
una causa s6lida para exigir
la extradici6n de Snowden,
de acuerdo con el tratado de
extradici6n que existe entire
Estados Unidos y Hong Kong.
Hist6ricamente Hong Kong ha
colaborado con Estados Unidos
a la hora de aplicar la ley, y las
autoridades estadounidenses
esperan que en este caso se
cumpla con el tratado. Asimis-
mo, se espera que las autori-
dades de Hong Kong actfien
pronto, porque de no ser asi,
eso complicaria las relaciones
bilaterales entire ambos paises
Alrededor del 14 de junior,
el gobierno de Estados Unidos
present una denuncia penal
contra Snowden por los delitos
de espionaje y robo de propie-
dad gubernamental; un pliego
de cargos que fue presentado
en un tribunal federal en Vir-
ginia. No obstante el tratado,
el texto del mismo contempla
unas excepciones en casos po-
liticos tales como el espionaje.
Otra posibilidad para Snowden
es solicitar asilo politico, como
lo ha hecho, a la hora de escri-
bir este articulo, pidiendolo a
Ecuador.
Snowden sefial6, que se ubi-
caba en Hong Kong cuando se
publicaron las filtraciones a la
prensa, pero que 6l no se en-
cuentra bajo protecci6n policial
ni en un lugar seguro.
Mucha gente desconoce lo
que es la Agencia de Seguridad
National. Este es un organis-
mo gubernamental del gobier-
no de los Estados Unidos cuya
funci6n es la recopilaci6n de
datos de inteligencia por me-
dio del uso de una tecnologia
electr6nica sofisticada, y que
tambien cuenta con satelites
para la interceptaci6n de las
comunicaciones. Es la agencia
de inteligencia mas grande de
los Estados Unidos. Esta agen-
cia, en colaboraci6n con el FBI,
puso en march un program
masivo de espionaje, conocido
como PRISM, para escuchar
comunicaciones privadas de la
ciudadania.
Este program alegadamen-
te accede a varias empresas,
sin su conocimiento y consen-


timiento, para extraer lo que
sefalan "informaci6n til".
Asimismo, forma parte de la
lucha contra el terrorism y
el gobierno sefiala que gracias
a mecanismos como estos se
han podido evitar various ata-
ques terrorists.
Aparentemente, este pro-
grama de espionage intervIno
con nueve de las tecnologias
del mundo, que controlan da-
tos personales de millones de
personas. Las empresas invo-
lucradas en este asunto han
desmentido que permitieran a
la inteligencia norteamericana
acceder a los servidores cen-
trales de las empresas globales
dominantes de Silicon Valley:
Microsoft Corp., Yahoo Inc.,
Google, Facebook, PalTalk,
AOL, Skype, Youtube y Apple.
Microsoft, a su vez, asegura
que no ha participado volun-
tariamente, pero ha cumplido
con las solicitudes sobre cuen-
tas o identidades especificas.
Segun se desprende del pro-
grama de espionaje, se basa en
una recopilaci6n legalmente
obligatoria, que funciona con
la ayuda de proveedores de co-
municaciones de Estados Uni-
dos.
Facebook, que' cuenta con
mas de 1,000 millones de
usuarios en todo el mundo,
ha negado enfaticamente que
compartiera sus datos. El jefe
de seguridad de la compafia,
Joe Sullivan, sefial6: "No he-
mos proporcionado a ninguna
organizaci6n gubemamental
acceso director a nuestros ser-
vidores".
Google tambien neg6 haber
creado una entrada secret
para la inteligencia america-
na. Apple, por su parte, dijo
que nunca han oido hablar
de PRISM y que no dan acce-
so de sus servidores a ninguna
agencia gubemamental, y cual-
quiera que quiera hacerlo debe
traer una orden judicial.
Yahoo asegur6, por su par-
te, que se toma muy en serio
la privacidad de sus usuarios y
que no ha dado acceso al go-
bierno a sus servidores o siste-
mas.
Ciertamente, todo este
asunto trae dos intereses apa-
rentemente en conflict: por un
lado la privacidad de las comu-
nicaciones de los ciudadanos y
por el otro, el interns del gobier-
no de proteger la seguridad na-
cional. Son intereses dificiles
de armonizar, pero no es impo-
sible. Si se toman las medidas
legales apropiadas como las
que ya se conocen en los casos
que hayan motivos fundados
para autorizar las intercepta-
ciones de las comunicaciones
con una orden judicial. Ambos
intereses son de igual prioridad
y deben ser protegidos.

Posmodernismo e identidad latinoamericana


Latinoamerica emerge como
nueva protagonista trans-
cultural, ligada a su hibrida
condici6n de 'otredad' frente
al modelo europeizante an-
cestralmente dominant. Lo
que precisa una nueva refor-
mulaci6n del discurso latino-
americano.
Enti6ndase por
posmodernismo el movimiento
cultural que irrumpe osten-
siblemente a partir de 1970,
que se prolonga hasta el mo-
mento actual, y que se opone
al funcionalismo y al raciona-
lismo modernos; cuestiona,
asimismo, todos los valores
establecidos; desafia el dis-
curso official y la cultural in-
stitucional, y pone en tela de
juicio la circunspecci6n que
instituy6 la modernidad.
En literature, ex-
isten disimiles rasgos es-
t6ticos manejados por el
posmodernismo, como la
ironia, el empleo de un len-
guaje connotativo opaco, el
uso de estructuras fragmen-
tadas, ademds de acentuadas
disposiciones antican6nicas.
En cuanto a los personajes,
bajo la mirada del escritor
posmoderno, se alteran sus
funciones tradicionales. El
heroe en la novela, por ejem-
plo, es descentrado, marginal,
disfuncional.
De la misma forma, el pos-
modernismo despliega un
estilo eclectico que alude,
en una suerte de pastiche
par6dico (imitaci6n o plagio),
a estilos anteriores. Termino
clave de esta tendencia es
el relativismo, que inclusive
cuestiona autoreflexiona -
sus propios valores.
La ironia y la parodia
aunque no significant exacta-
mente lo mismo, colindan
en el discurso posmoderno.
Existe ironia entire los propios
personajes de una obra, y
entire el narrador y 6stos. La
ironia posmoderna promueve
un acercamiento critic en que
el humor se torna sarcastico,
Acido, creando un distancia-
miento evaluativo y reflexive
entire el espectador y la obra,
todo lo contrario a la funci6n
habitual de la risa.
Un acercamiento
posmoderno puede asimismo
actuar como un sistema es-
tetico que clausura la espe-
ranza, invitando al lector a
replantedrsela, repensarla
en calidad de expectativa
troncada. .Diversos autores
latinoamericanos refiri6-
ndonos a un context mds
nuestro tasan su realidad
como una especie de ironia,
donde muchos emigramos
huyendo de la miseria, de los
gobiemrnos oligarquicos y ter-
minamos expuestos a circun-
stancias culturales, econ6mi-
cas y sociales matizadas por
la discriminaci6n, la nostalgia
por el suelo natal, la colisi6n
cultural con un nuevo medio
discrepante, y la desvalori-
zaci6n emotional que implica
el sospecharse inferior en la
escala de valores de nuestro'
entomrno.
A su vez, lo posmoderno
se mofa de la nostalgia de
un pasado glorioso, de esos
grandes moments de imperio,
de logros entendidos como
notables en el ayer hist6rico.
Los pulsa y precisa como un
museo de inutilidades. Los
limits fluctuian, lo alto y lo
bajo se pueden mezclar en un
moment determinado.

Lydia Medrano recibe premio

a la educaci6n


Segfin el fil6sofo Jean-Franqois Lyotard, uno de los precep-
tores de la llamada posmodernidad, "el posmodernismo
es acostumbrarse a pensar sin moldes ni criterios".


la modernidad, como son
la ciencia, la educaci6n y la
ideologia. La ideologia com-
prende las subcategorias de
los partidos y la religion.
El posmodernismo clausura
las grandes narrativas como
formulas funcionales que
persiguen manipular nuestras
mentes en cierta direcci6n.
La postura postmoderna
se proyecta en contra de las
reglas y los preceptos. Asi-
mismo, deshace el tiempo y
el espacio. Precisa develar el
entresijo, ahonda en la am-
bivalencia, el simbolismo, la
desfragmentaci6n. Una trama
lineal no acoplaria con una
ambiciosa legitima propuesta.
Donde no se cree en el pro-
greso, no se llega a ninguna
parte: ni en la religion, ni en
las convicciones political y
sociales, ni en ningCin otro de
los grandes relates. No hay
aspiraciones.
No obstante, no es just
afirmar que la posmodernidad
sea pesimista. Ciertamente
nos hace repensar nuestro
optimism. Nos informa. No
nos impone lo que debemos

cado por el discurso official.
Por eso nos parece pesimis-
ta, al compararlo con otras
aproximaciones a la literature
que proponen soluciones. El
posmodernismo nos da 'lib-
ertad total' ante la realidad,
cualquiera que sea su esencia.
Otro perfil posmoderno de
gran interns es la celebraci6n
de lo local para nosotros, de
lo latinioamericano -, en con-
traposici6n con las grandes
ideologias del occidente. El su-
jeto carece de la tan tradicio-
nalmente exaltada identidad,
en crisis por innumerables
razones de genero y etnias.
Se cuestionan las definicio-
nes tradicionales, se busca la
esencia que palpita en el fondo
del ser: ambigua, compleja,
descentrada, contradictoria,
desordenada, propia del heroe
que no es heroe, que puede
significar lo contrario de lo que
se presumia.
Lo posmoderno revaloriza
el origen, esa nostalgia del
pasado que se da a traves de
contacts bastardos. C6mo
se aplica ese concept de
hibridaci6n al context de
America Latina? Los studios
latinoamericanos, especial-
mente en Estados Unidos, han


suscitado una imagen nuestra
como "otredad", como "mi-
noria". Hasta que punto es
esto cierto? eSomos realmente

verdadera crisis de pueblo, una
crisis de pueblo que deviene
en una crisis de identidad por
el desconocimiento de nuestra
historic, no s6lo el desconoci-
miento de la misma sino nues-
tro desprecio hacia ella.
Han pasado sesenta y dos
afios de la publicaci6n de ese li-
bro y aun es tan actual. C6mo
es possible que los maestros o
profesores de esa escuela per-
mitan tener un busto de Bolivar
derruido en eljardin interno de
esa instituci6n? eA los maestros
no les duele que el busto de
Bolivar este en ese estado? eA
alguien de la comunidad o a al-
gun padre o madre de los nifios
que estudian en la instituci6n
le importa eso? ,A alguien le
importa lo que puede significar
esa frase fuera de context, de
Bolivar? Me pregunto yo: 6de
tantas frases de Bolivar por que
escogieron esa en referencia a
la discipline? 6Son soldados los
estudiantes?
No puedo evitar sonreirme
al escribir estas palabras, de
tantas frases que fueron parte
de los discursos o documents
donde Bolivar en verdad decia
algo de verdadera relevancia
esta es la escogida, incluso
hasta la frase mas manoseada
por tantos: "Moral y luces seran
nuestras primeras necesidades"
o "moral y luces seran los polos
de nuestra repiblica", podria
haber sido utilizada, aunque
siempre me ha parecido que los
maestros, profesores o docentes
deben explicitar esta frase tan
incomprendida entire muchos
estudiantes que la leen mecd-
nicamente y no la entienden,
pues es incomprendida ya que
se tiene un concept err6neo
de lo que es la moral, imbuido
a mi parecer por el dogma de
la religion, y no por el concept
como la utilizaba Bolivar.
En la cuarta acepci6n de Mo-
ral en el diccionario de la Real
Academia Espafiola dice: "cien-
cia que trata del bien general
y de las acciones humans en
orden a su bondad y malicia".
Creo que a esta definici6n se
referia Bolivar al hablar de la
Moral y al referirse a las Luces
utiliza una metafora referida al
conocimiento, los estudiantes
lamentablemente la entien-

comprender para luego explicar
a los estudiantes que Bolivar
fue influido por los fil6sofos

escribieron en el ilamado Siglo
de las Luces (1700-1800). Ley6

s?
la autoridad que les ordenara,
cosa peligrosa de ensefiar para
quien detenta el poder, por eso
fue desaparecido todo su legado
educativo y no se estudia en
nuestras grandes universida-
des puiblicas aut6nomas, me
refiero principalmente a LUZ,
ULA y la UCV [universidades
venezolanas].
De Sim6n Rodriguez s6lo
sabemos que fue el Maestro
de Sim6n Bolivar, y no que su
libro favorite era el Emilio de
Rousseau, que como describe
otro olvidado intellectual vene-
zolano Mariano Pic6n Salas "...
(En &l) se decia que la ensefianza
que mas vale es la que el hombre
logra en la detenida observaci6n
de todo lo viviente; no s6lo lo que
tenemos en los textos de studio
o nos trasmiten los maestros,
sino reflexionando sobre cuanto
vemos y cuanto pasa por nuestra
conciencia. La naturaleza es el
primero y mas fascinante libro
que invita a nuestros ojos, y
desenvolviendo la imaginaci6n,
la sensibilidad y hasta la fantasia
po6tica, el hombre puede ser su
propio maestro".
De la lectura de Rousseau
nace la idea de Sim6n Rodriguez
que dice que la lectura se hace
a traves de todos los sentidos,
y tambien la importancia de la
observaci6n de todo lo viviente
como otra manera de conoci-
miento, de ahi nace tambien lo
que otro gran pedagogo llamado
Paulo Freire llam6 la lectura del
mundo, la lectura que todos
hacemos desde que nos damos
cuenta que estamos en este
mundo. Sim6n Rodriguez y
Paulo Freire son los padres de
la llamada Educaci6n Popular,
manera de educar que es la
necesaria si se piensa en un
verdadero cambio en nuestra
educaci6n formal, que lamen-
tablemente es casi la misma
desde que la criticaba Sim6n
Rodriguez en el siglo XIX o, me-
jor dicho, ha empeorado desde
los planteamientos y critics
que hacia el maestro de Bolivar
para ese entonces.
Los maestros de nuestras
escuelas actualmente lo que
parecen son carceleros, y las
aulas de classes parecen mis
bien jaulas de classes, s6 que
afortunadamente existen algu-
nos maestros que se ganan con
merito que el alumni lo flame
asi, de la misma forma que Bo-
livar ilamaba maestro a Sim6n
Rodriguez, pero la gran mayoria
desconoce (y a veces creo que ni
les importa) el papel y la labor de
las aulas como formadoras de
los ciudadanos de la future Ve-
nezuela. Desconocen lo impor-
tante y significativo que algun
alumni te llame maestro; asi
ilamaban a Jesis, a S6crates, a
Gandhi a Mahoma, a personas
que fueron relevantes en nues-
tra vida a lo largo de la historic
de nuestro planet.

percibe de importamos un bledo

Me disculpo con los bue-

a lo largo de mi carrera de

frustrante ver cosas que a nadie
le importa: la desidia de algunos

de apreciar a nuestros Heroes

Excepciones de la ley de

Naturalizaci6n


El process de naturalizaci6n
require, entire otros requisitos,
que el solicitante sepa escribir,
leer y hablar ingles. Ademds,
la persona debe demostrar
que tiene conocimientos su-
ficientes acerca del gobierno
estadounidense y de la historic
del pals.
No obstante, la ley puede
exceptuar a una persona del
cumplimiento de esos dos
requisitos, especificamente
de tomar la prueba de ingles
y civica durante el process de
naturalizaci6n como se explica
a continuaci6n.
La ley exime de tomar la
prueba de ingles a aquellos que
sufren una discapacidad mental
o fisica determinada; aquellos
que ya cumplieron los 55 afios
de edad y han residido en Esta-
dos Unidos por un period de
15 afios a partir de la entrega
de su residencia permanent;
y aquellos que tienen 50 afios
de edad y han sido residents
legales por 20 afios en Estados
Unidos.
Los solicitantes de
naturalizaci6n/ciudadania ex-
entos de tomar el examen de
ingles para demostrar su en-
tendimniento del idioma debido
a su edad, auin deben tomar el
examen de gobierno.
La prueba para demostrar
conocimientos acerca del go-
bierno de Estados Unidos, se
exceptCila solamente en casos
de discapacidad mental o fisica
o por ser mayor de 65 afios de
edad siempre y cuando la per-
sona ha permanecido en el pals
como resident por 20 afios.
En ultima instancia, la persona
mayor de 65 afios realizari un
examen modificado acerca del
gobierno. En estos casos es
possible ser asistido por un tra-
ductor e intdrprete.
Desde 1994, los solicitantes
con discapacidades mentales
y fisicas califican para las ex-
cepciones arriba mencionadas.
Para calificar, el solicitante debe


comprobar que padece de una
enfermedad, verificable por un
professional de la salud, estab-
leciendo que el tratamiento y
cuidado ha tenido o se espera
tenga una duraci6n de al me-
nos doce meses. Obviamente,
el impediment no puede ser
atribuido al consume illegal de
drogas. Esa solicitud se intro-
duce mediante el formulario N
648. Se recomienda complete la
solicitud con un medico de ca-
bacera, quien tenga una licencia
valida para ejercer su profesi6n
en Florida.
El prop6sito de ese formu-
lario es informar a los Servicios
de Inmigraci6n acerca de los
diagn6sticos padecidos por el
solicitante y su impact en la
habilidad del solicitante para
aprender ingles y retener cono-
cimientos nuevos, tal y como los
requeridos acerca del gobierno.
Estos casos son uno de los
mas complicados en la prAc-
tica de la ley de Inmigraci6n.
Los Servicios de Inmigraci6n
comuinmente se quejan de
abuses en el uso de estas excep-
ciones. Sin embargo, muchos
de ellos son negados por falta
de corroboraci6n y no por falta
de meritos.

Festa di San Giovanni Battista ad Alessandria della Rocca
;4 giugno di ogni anno tualmente chi detiene tutti i IS S [
-ndria sposta il suo segreti del culto sono le prof."-"
d'attenzione e pun- sse Castellano, le quali rac-
incontro dalla Chiesa contano come difatti da or-
alia piccola Chiesa di mai lunghi anni la propria
anni Battista sita in famigliane e devota: nel 1956


via S.Giovanni, la quale os-
pita il simulacro del santo
venerato con grande fede da-
gli alessandrini.
Tanti i riti e le tradizioni
da segnalare che donano
singolaritA al culto stesso,
distinguendolo dalle altre
feste popolati. La tradizione
vuole che all'organizzazione
della festa si dedichi il co-
mitato scelto dal parroco
della comunitA di Alessan-
dria, ma come spesso accade
per feste religiose-popolari
di tradizione secolare, a far
continuare le tradizioni del
culto sono famiglie della co-
munita che tramandano da
generazione in generazione
la devozione nei confront del
Santo e il relative impegno di
fede mell'occuparsi della fes-
ta. Questo accade per molte
delle feste alessandrine, ma
interessante e infatti seg-
nalare come la famiglia Cas-
tellano & da generazioni al
centro dell'organizzazione
della festa di S. Giovanni. At-


il loro zio Salvatore Scaglione
ha fatto riprendere il pros-
petto della Chiesa e donate
il bastone e la ghirlanda che
ancora oggi ornano il simu-
lacro.
Tradizionale e il Santo Ro-
sario dedicate a S.Giovanni
il quale dall'antica formula
"S. Giuvanni i decullatu, in
casa mia un c'atu vinutu, vi-
niti prestu e datimi aiutu",
si passa ad un ritornello
storico ed ormai simbolo del-
la giornata "Fu lu primu di
l'apostuli avviatu, iddu era
lu cchia granni, Viva Dio e
S. Giovanni". II S.Rosario or-
mai & per6 l'unico element
caratterizzante all'interno
della celebrazione religiosa,
esisteva infatti una liturgia
particolare, canti devozionali
appositi per la Messa, ormai
racchiusi in. un libretto forse
dimenticato che ha lasciato
posto ai quotidiani canti li-
turgici.
E' evidence per6 come la
devozione nei confront del


Santo persista nonostante
la trasformazione nel tempo,
in particular modo e da-seg-
nalare un'antica credenza
second cui il Santo avrebbe
potuto guarire ogni tipo di
malanno la quale sfocia nella
tradizionale preparazione del
"Pani Vutivu". La tradizione
vuole che ogni famiglia ales-
sandrina si prepari ad ac-
cogliere il giorno della festa
impegnandosi alla preparaz-
ione del pane votivo, questo


deve essere caratterizzato da
una simbologia che possa
ricollegare al tipo di mira-
colo richiesto. II pane di S.
Giovanni deve essere rappre-
sentato con il corpo, cuore,
arti, ma chi compone la testa
sard solo chi avrA ricevuto
la grazia. La benedizione dei
pani avviene durante la cel-
ebrazione della prima messa
mattutina delle 7.00, la Mes-'
sa pifI partecipata e difatti
simbolo della celebrazione


liturgica del Santo. L'intera
giornata di festa si trascorre
nel circondario della Chiesa,
concludendosi a notte fonda
quando la lunga procession
ritorna in Chiesa a deporre il
simulacro neila propria casa.
(Mi trovo in questi giorni
proprio ad Alessandria della
Rocca per partecipare alla
sudetta festa e questo ar-
ticolo e' stato scritto su un
giornale locale dalla Dott.ssa
Maria Cristina Ciaravella).

The Ten Best Devices For the Outdoors Person


The creation and develop-
ment of implements for out-
doors use has over the years,
made the tasks of the outdoors
person simpler, more efficient,
safer and more enjoyable than
ever. As we have grown accus-
tomed to these appliances,
many of us take for granted
their utility and service. Thus,
we thought about bringing to
mind the relevance and im-
portance that some of these
items have played in our out-
door activities.
Our opinion as to their rel-
ative significance is just that,
our own personal assess-
ment. The judgment of the
readers as to the scale of im-
portance of the items may be
in contrast to ours. However,
we believe all will agree that
all these items are of impor-
tance to all of us that venture
into the forests, waters or into
flight.
Number 10: The Com-
pound Bow. The compound
bow was first developed in
1966 by Holless Wilbur Al-
len in Missouri, and a US
patent was granted in 1969.
The compound bow has be-
come dominant form of bow
worldwide. It allows archers
to make precise shots never
imagined by the users of the
primitive recurved bow. The
limbs of.these powerful bows
are made of composite materi-
als capable of taking high ten-
sile and compressive forces.
The limbs store all the energy
of the bow. Outfitted with pul-
leys and cables, the necessary
strength used to pull the bow
cable to full draw is reduced
between 10 and 100 pounds
enabling the archer to hold
the draw while aiming. Arrow
speeds of 150 to 370 feet per
second are not uncommon.
Number 9: The Swiss
Army Knife. The concept of
this famous folding tool set we
call the Swiss Army Knife be-


gan in January of 1891.
A demand by the Swiss
Army for a knife that could
be used for multiple pur-
poses, including the disas-
sembly of the Swiss service
rifle, opening cans as well as
cutting, sparked its creation.
Karl Elsener, then owner of a
company that made surgical
equipment began to make the
knives in Switzerland using
the cross and shield to iden-
tify them. When his mother
died in 1909, Elsener decided
to name his company "Victo-
ria" in her memory. The name
was later changed to its pres-
ent Victorinox. In 1921 the
company started using stain-
less steel for its blades. I can-


not imagine a more useful tool
to carry in one's pocket when
fishing, camping, hunting or.
for everyday uses.
Number 8: The Therma-
cell Cordless Portable Mos-
quito Repellent Appliance. If
you hunt, camp, fish in lakes
or close to shore in salt wa-
ter, you must know the name
Thermacell. The appliance is
powered by a butane cartridge
that heats a wick impregnated
with a most effective bug re-
pellant. Once the vapor ema-
nates from the tool, a 15-foot
safety bubble encases the
user.
Number 7: The Leather-
man multipurpose tool. If
one is to have the choice of
one tool to carry afield, boat-
ing, hunting, fishing, camp-
ing or flying, this is the one
to have. According to Wikipe-
dia, Timothy S. Leatherman, a
1970 mechanical engineering
graduate of Oregon State Uni-
versity, and his business part-
ner, Steve Berliner, formed
Leatherman Tool Group in
1983. Leatherman was in-
spired to design a "Boy Scout
knife with pliers" while he and
his wife traveled Europe and
the Middle East in 1975, of-
ten attempting to use a simple
pocketknife to repair their re-
peatedly malfunctioning car
and leaky hotel plumbing. He
spent several years perfecting
the "Mr. Crunch" prototype
and received his first U.S. pat-
ent in 1980. After additional
refinement, Leatherman's
first product was introduced
in 1983 as the Pocket Survival
Tool (PST).
Number 6: The fiberglass
boat. Originally, all boats
were made of natural materi-
als. Wood, reeds and animal
skins provided the material
for various types of vessel.
Natural components obvious-
ly deteriorate with the pas-
sage of time and exposure
to the elements. Around the
mid-1960s, boats made of
glass-reinforced plastic, more
commonly known as fiber-
glass, became popular, espe-
cially for recreational boats.
Fiberglass boats are extreme-
ly strong and do not rust, cor-
rode, or rot. They are easy to
clean. With a coat of wax, the
hulls slip through the water
with far less resistance than
wood. Except for a few pur-
ists that still love the wooden
boats, most owners of large or
small vessels prefer the solid
fiberglass hulls.
Number 5: The self-con-
tained cartridge. The invern-
tion of the firearm was no
doubt a revolutionary inven-
tion that unfortunately, fa-
cilitated the killing other hu-
mans. On the positive side,
guns made hunting and the
obtaining of meat for food a
much easier task. Originally,
in order to propel a projectile
from a gun, black powder was
poured into the barrel followed

by a ball that was stuffed
tightly against the powder by
the use of a cloth patch.
A small amount of powder
was then poured into a cham-
ber connected to the barrel by
a small orifice. The hammer of
the gun had a piece of flint at-
tached which would create a
spark when it fell on the pow-
der. The whole thing would
then go off with great commo-
tion, smoke and inaccuracy.
Sometimes the thing would
not detonate creating a huge
hazard for the person that
was to remove the ball from
the barrel. Later, some other
equally haphazard methods
of sending the projectile down
range came about with not
much better results. Some-
time during the mid-1800s,
the self-contained, metal car-
tridge with a primer imbed-
ded in the center of the rear
portion was developed in Eng-
land. Soon, the new cartridge
became the one to use all over
the world. Presently they are
manufactured in a multitude
of calibers to dispatch all
types of game animals or hu-
mans.
Number 4: The self-in-
flating life vest. There is no
doubt the number of deaths
attributed to boaters drown-
ing can be dramatically re-
duced by the use of personal
flotation devices (PFDs).
What we once called life
savers, have experienced an
evolution that makes the de-
vices more comfortable, easier
to use and less intrusive for
fishers, sailors or recreational
boaters.
We have chosen as our pre-
ferred PFD the WEST MARINE
Hydrostatic Inflatable Life
Vest. This lightweight, com-
fortable PFD uses hydrostatic
pressure for automatic infla-
tion, even in severe conditions.
The Hammar IF auto inflator
is maintenance-free for five
years and automatically in-
flates only when submerged
in 4" of water. This means it
won't prematurely inflate due
to rain, spray or humidity.
The inflation cylinder is inside
the bladder to protect against
corrosion. Each PFD includes
small item pocket, strobe light
holder, safety whistle and SO-
LAS reflective tape.
Number 3: The GPS. The
Global Positioning System.
The advent of the GPS dra-
matically changed naviga-
tion on land, sea and air. The
Global Positioning System
(GPS) is a space-based satel-
lite navigation system that
provides location and time in-
formation in all weather con-
ditions, anywhere on or near
the Earth where there is an
unobstructed line of sight to
four or more GPS satellites.
The system provides critical
capabilities to military, civil
and commercial users around
the world. It is maintained

meant and is freely accessible
to anyone with a GPS receiver.
Flying in the northern reach-
es of Alaska, where magnetic
compasses are not accurate,
the advent of the GPS added
an incredible margin of safety
to the many airplanes that
by necessity fly there. For
the more mundane applica-
tions, previously found fish-
ing spots, determined to be
productive, can now be pre-
cisely re-located during day or
night. The way back to home
port can be found in even the
foulest, zero visibility weath-
er. Same margin of safety is
brought by these devices in
the deepest forests or in any
city that may cause us to be-
come disoriented.
Number 2: The outboard
motor, Until the advent of the
outboard motor, heavy and
cumbersome power plants
were the only source of pro-
pulsion for boats, big or small.
Temperamental and danger-
ous, the early engines, diesel
or gasoline were mostly con-
versions of land applications
converted for marine use. This
writer is old enough to remem-
ber some of those clanky, can-
tankerous and usually slow
engines. The adapted car en-
gines needed a transmission
and clutch jury rigged to a
drive shaft that had to punch
through the hull via a not-
so-watertight seal. In order
to cool them, a water pick-up
had to also be drilled through
the hull and attached to
specially made water jack-
ets that were fastened to the
exhaust manifold. They were
real contraptions.
The first outboard mo-
tor was an electric unit pat-
ented in 1880 by the French
inventor Gustave Trouv6. In
1896 American Motors pro-
duced some 25 outboard
engines without much suc-
cess. The most successful
early outboard motor was
created by Norwegian-Amer-
ican inventor Ole Evinrude
in 1909. Between 1909 and
1912, Evinrude made thou-
sands of his outboards and


the three horse power units
were sold around the world.
Number 1: The para-
chute recovery system for
small aircraft. The Ballistic
recovery system was grant-
ed US patent on 26 August
1986.
The company was formed
in 1980 by Boris Popov after
he survived a 400-foot fall
in a partly collapsed hang
glider in 1975. As a result
Popov invented a parachute'
system which would lower a
whole light airplane to the
ground relatively safely with


the people inside. It could be
used in the event of loss of
control, failure of the aircraft
structure, or other in-flight
emergencies. It can be in-
stalled in most light aircraft
in use throughout the world.
If you have ever flown in
small aircraft, the thought
of an engine or structural
failure is ever present.
Even though pilots are
trained, and have made
emergency landings in all
sorts of places, there are
places and circumstances
that prohibit a safe landing
whether under powered or
dead stick. As in other BRS
systems a solid-fuel rocket,
housed in the aft fuselage,
is used to pull the para-
chute out from its housing
and deploy the canopy full
within seconds. The goal of
employing this system is the
survival of the crew and pas-
sengers and not necessarily
the prevention of damage to
the airframe.
We must agree, all of these
devices can make us more
efficient in the outdoors and
even extend our lives.

Be afraid ... be very afraid ...
the terrible twos have arrived
early for Ben. He is exhibit-
ing all the classic signs and is
threatening to destroy me be-
fore he grows out of this awful
stage in his life; selfishness,
violence and even the dreaded
temper tantrums are all now
routines for my little jerk of a
son.
His selfishness has hit Ber-
nie Madoff proportions. If his
fingers have touched an ob-
ject at any point in his life, he
believes it is undoubtedly his.
If you dare touch said object,
whether it is a toy that is in fact
his or piece of lint you found
under the couch, he rushes
over to you, and with evil in his
eyes screams out, "MINE!" be-
fore ripping it from your hands.
Apparently, he owns everything
and is willing to do whatever it
takes to get it. Complicating the
problem is that the little freak
is strong! He may be the most
powerful physical force in the
house. Whatever he wants, he
gets and there is nothing we
can do about it.
This immense power has
the entire house on alert now
that the demons of the terrible
twos have taken over his body.
Another "normal" stage for
children his age to go through
is "innocent violence." Ben will
slowly meander around the
house, his chest puffed out
and an "I'm searching for trou-
ble" look in his eyes, waiting to
strike. When we notice an at-
tack upon one of us is eminent,
we all pray that he will attack
someone else in the room; it is
every man for himself in our
household when it comes to
Ben's newfound violent streak,
especially when he is carry-
ing a heavy object in hand like
an Etch A Sketch or a giant
toy truck. I thank God every--
day that Amy threw away the
plastic golf clubs and replaced
them with Styrofoam swords
weeks before Ben added blud-
geoning -his loved ones to his
daily chores.
At least once an hour some-
one in my home is screaming in
pain thanks to Ben. I've never
been more afraid in my entire
life. We have all been known at
some point to throw another
family member under the bus
when Violent Ben enters the
room. "Go hug mommy!" I've
yelled to him to protect my
own skin. "She wants to hug
you while you hold that large
knife!" Don't judge me. Trust
me; you'd do the same thing in


my shoes.
What makes such vicious-
ness innocent? There doesn't
appear to be any malice behind
these actions and he seems
earnestly upset when he is
hurting us. For instance, last
week he turned on his sister.
Out of nowhere, he rushed over
to her and began smashing his
open hands into her head. As
she begged for mercy, he was
crying to her, "I love you! I love
you!" He was apologizing to
her, admitting he had no con-
trol over his own actions, as
though he was possessed and
he couldn't fight the "terrible
two entity" controlling his body.
The worst of his terrible two
symptoms, however, are his
tantrums. I hate tantrums!
His tantrums are loud; the
boy inherited my booming NJ
voice that makes even a whis-
per sound like he's screaming
into a megaphone.
His tantrums are as un-
controllable as his violence.
For example, he recently kindly
asked for a banana. I gave it to
him, but then he turned on me,
tossing the banana across the
room and tantrumed that he
didn't want it, even screaming
at that banana like it was his
mortal enemy. "Stupid banana!"
he shouted. 'You smell!" Be-
cause, as we all know, bananas
are the smelliest and dumbest
of all the fruits. Moments later
he ate it. Huh? Well, maybe it
makes sense. Is there a better
revenge against a banana you
despise than to eat it?
His tantrums turn my cute
son into an ugly brat. Nothing
is uglier than a tantruming boy.
When girls throw tantrums,
it is annoying, yet their pretty
faces allow them to get away
with it. After all, girls are made
of sugar and spice and every-
thing.nice. Boys are just ... well
... they're boys ... made of frogs
and snails and puppy dog tails.
Never is that classic poem more
apt than when watching the
two sexes tantrum.
I hate Ben's tantrums most
of all, however, because they
are hurting me physically!
My back has been aching
for 23 months now; the exact
number of months Ben has
been alive.
It's not that he weighs too
much for me to carry; I'm not
in that bad of shape yet. It's
the awkwardness of lifting him
from my tiny car. Unlike Amy's
SUV, I cannot step into my
car, lift him from his car seat,
pick him up and carry him out.


My car is too small. I need to
lift him from his car seat as I
stand outside my car and then
pull him toward me in an awk-
ward jerking motion with my
back. Even when he weighed
just a few pounds, performing
such an action a dozen times a
day took its toll on me. As his
weight, increased, it hurt me
more to get him out of my car.
The accumulative effects of all
those months of tweaking my
back every time Ben was in my
car became too much. Back
pain turned into back injury.
And now, his recent tantrums
have&set my back into that pain
category that is perfectly illus-
trated with the open mouthed
sad face on the sign-in sheet at
a chiropractor's office.
Ben's new favorite game
is every parent's least favor-
ite game the running game.
Parents, you know the game.
Whether you call your child for
dinner, a bath or to change his
or her stinky diaper before it at-
tracts flies, your child runs from
you giggling, thinking he or she
is the funniest kid on the planet.
Making it so hard to catch such
kids is that they are as FAST as
Ben Johnson at his juiced up
best, can weave around chairs
and couches reminiscent of
Barry Sanders in his prime, and
can hide in spaces so tight that
you'd think only cartoon char-
acters who can deflate their
bodies can fit into.
Despite all these advan-
tages, I can still catch Ben ...
albeit it's after chasing him for
20 minutes. But Ben is a poor
loser, so when I do finally ap-
prehend him and pick him up,
he tantrums, tossing his body
in every direction while becom-
ing dead weight at the same
time. It's a skill that is both
impressive and deadly; trying
to lift him countless times in
those situations has been the
straw that literally broke my
back. I've been in severe pain
since this stage in his life be-
gan a few weeks back, unable
to do something as simple as
standing up without screaming
in pain. And I owe it to Ben, my
car and his newfound terrible
twos tantruming.
So to summarize my al-
most 2-year-old son owns ev-
erything in the house, beats up
whomever he wants whenever
he wants, and has broken my
back.
I'm scared of my son. So
afraid ... so very afraid.
Pray for me Tim Tebow.
Please buy my book. I'm
soon going to have four mouths

night Family Man; a diary of

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Don't be Sheepish about asking
questions and demanding an-
swers. You not only gain needed
information, but also respect
for your steadfast search for the
truth.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
A money problem that shows up
early in the week is expeditiously
resolved by savvy Bovines who
know how to turn a momentary
financial lapse into a monetary
gain.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
It's a good time to shed negative
-energy-draining forces and de-
velop a positive approach to han-
dling current, as well as upcom-
ing, personal and/or professional
situations.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Your urge to do your best on a
current task is commendable. But
don't let it become all-consuming.
Spend some spiritually restorative
time with those who love you.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
This could be a good time for all


you Leos and Leonas to take your
bows for your recent achieve-
ments and then go off to enjoy
some fun times with your prides
and joys.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22) A negative response
to a well-intentioned suggestion
could communicate a sense of
distrust you might later find hard
to refute. Think carefully before
reacting.
LIBRA (September 23 to Oc-
tober 22) Your loving attention
comforts a family member who is
feeling a bit out of sorts. But be
careful to prioritize your time so
you don't neglect your work du-
ties.
SCORPIO (October 23 to No-
vember 21) Your curiosity might
be resented by some. But those
who know you will support your
penchant for never settling for less
than the truth. So stay with it.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21) A pesky situa-
tion from the past recurs, albeit
in an altered form. Deal with it


promptly, before it can go from
merely irksome to decidedly trou-
blesome.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19) Don't wait too
long to submit your proposals af-
ter giving them a last.look-over.
If necessary, you should be able
to defend any portion called into
question.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18) A bid to use your
workplace dispute-settling skills
in another situation is tempting.
But be careful: You might not
have all the facts you'll need if you
agree to do it.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) That sense of self-
doubt is so untypical of you, you
should have no qualms in shak-
ing it off. Remind yourself of all
you've done and can do, and then
do it again.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your abil-
ity to charm others without sac-
rificing sincerity is what makes
people want to follow }our leader-

cultural tourism draws yawns.

The Democratic primary race for
State Representative District 61
will have at least two well-funded
candidates who -have split some
of the important endorsements in
that district. Sean Shaw has the en-
dorsement of State Senator Arthe-
nia Joyner and the backing of the
trial lawyers lobby. Ed Narain has
the endorsement of County Com-
missioner Les Miller and former
City Councilwoman Gwen Miller
and the backing of the insurance
and business lobbies.
District 61 is centered in East
Tampa. It is one of the poorest
districts in the state and so heavily
Democratic that the primary will
settle the entire race.
In the past, there hasn't been
a lot of money raised for different
campaigns in the district since only
one candidate received the backing.
This time, there is a split with local
leadership and Tallahassee's lobby.
This means the race for District 61
should be very interesting and more
expensive.

The Hillsborough County School
Board is advertising for "an outside
attorney to directly advise School
Board members and the Board
on matters of school law, public
records law, Sunshine Law, and
municipal, county, state.and fed-
eral law governing the operation of
schools and the District."
Call 272-4327 if you're interested
in applying. *****
Martin Garcia has been named
by Governor Rick Scott to replace
the late Steve Burton on the Hill-
sborough County Aviation Au-
thority. Mr. Garcia runs a private
investment firm, is of counsel to the
law firm of Hill Ward Henderson
and was the campaign chair for
Pam Bondi's campaign for Attorney
General.
On May 24, we wrote, "Martin
Garcia and Sandy MacKinnon are
leading the pack."

Florida is celebrating its 500th
anniversary of European explora-
tion. This is a unique distinction
Florida has over all states. We
were the first to be put on the Euro-
pean map. What is now the United
States of America was discovered
by Ponce de Le6n when he set foot
in Florida 500 years ago.
This unique place in history led
to the founding of St. Augustine,
the first European settlement
in what is now the continental
United States. This was long before
Jamestown and decades before the
pilgrims stepped out on Plymouth
Rock.
The event hasn't inspired much
attention from Floridians.
It was in the spirit of honoring
our unique place in world his-
tory that City Councilwoman Yolie
Capin asked to have Nebraska Av-
enue renamed Pedro Men6ndez de
Avil6s Avenue. Pedro Men6ndez de
Avil6s founded St. Augustine and
secured Florida for Spain. He was
the also first governor of Florida.
This would make him a valid can-
didate for a road-naming to mark
the anniversary.
Councilwoman Capin's sugges-
tion was met with a lot of anger that
seems to be more than a disagree-
ment on the worthiness of marking
the anniversary or the selection of
Men6ndez de Aviles. The level of


negativity rose to the same kind of
anger we see in today's immigration
debate. Is honoring our Latin heri-
tage as offensive to some as current
Hispanic immigration patterns?
Some complain that Men6ndez
de Avil6s was a butcher and a mur-
derer. This is an odd complaint in
Tampa, which has a parade every
year to honor an imaginary pirate
who rapes and pillages. The fact
is that he was tasked by the king
with a military duty of driving out
the French from Florida by any
means. He, as many before and
after, performed his military task
with brutal efficiency.
A lot of our heroes and honored
ones fail to meet modern standards
when placed under the microscope.
We guess none of the conquistadors
would meet today's standards of
political correctness.
The most controversial piece
of Men6ndez de Avil6s history is
the capture of 365 French soldiers
who were stranded on the Florida
coast. The soldiers were remnants
of a naval force that was attacking
St. Augustine when a storm scat-
tered the fleet. Men6ndez' forces
numbered only fifty when they cap-
tured the larger force. The issues
Men6ndez de Avil6s faced were he
had no place to imprison his cap-
tives, no ship to send them away,
an insufficient force to guard them
and no food to feed them. He chose
to execute them.
Another point of attack against
Capin's suggestion is that it would
rename Nebraska at a cost of
$75,000. Almost all public honors
have some costs. Statues run from
$30,000 to $300,000. Plaques and
monuments can cost up to $50,000.:
So the renaming of Nebraska isn't
all that expensive, especially in a
city that just spent $6 million on a
few feet of riverfront sidewalk and
where a fancy bus stop can cost just
as much. The added advantage is
that businesses along Nebraska
would benefit in the long run from
the renaming. Nebraska has a
seedy reputation that is no longer
deserved, but the perception lin-
gers. A renaming could be a fresh
start. Men6ndez de Avil6s is one
suggestion. Maybe Ponce de Le6n,
Hernando de Soto or St. Augustine
would accomplish the same goal.
The goal to honor and mark our
heritage- is a worthy one. We hope
people will help Capin reach it.
Just to show how mean the de-
bate is, this message was sent to
Capin. "Council Member Yvonne
Yolie Capin where are you from?
Renaming Nebraska Ave. is the
dumbest thing I have ever heard!
You need to move to Miami and
get on the Council down there. I'm
surprised that a murderer could be
a hero to you."
The message was labeled as be-
ing from Laura Simpson, interim
president and CEO of the Brandon
Chamber. Ms. Simpson unequivo-
cally denies being the author of the
message. It seems that the haters
aren't willing to attach their own
names to their words.

The J.C. Newman family, led by
brothers Eric and Bobby Newman,
was chosen by the Ybor City Cham-
ber of Commerce to receive the
Adela and Cesar Gonzmart Award
for its support and contributions to
the preservation of Ybor City and
the promotion of its culture.
The gala will be on Saturday,
September 21, starting at 6:30 p.m.
at the Columbia Restaurant.
If you'd like to participate, call
248-3712, extension 22.

Have communists infiltrated
the ranks of City government? The
Board of the Ybor City Development
Corporation wanted to expand the
Seventh Avenue streetscaping
to the east. The block of Seventh
Avenue between 23rd Street and
24th Street was supposed to get hex
pavers and bricks for the sidewalk,
Ybor street lights, parking wells
and Washington palms.
Without notice, the City ig-
nored the wishes of the people
and changed the look of the Ybor
streetscape by replacing a good,
American-sounding palm tree the
Washington with the Chinese fan
palm. Our Main Street, USA will
now and forever be lined with the
short, squat Chinese fan palms. I
thought this was America!
It seems the Washington, like
America, stands too proud and tall
for the bean counters. The City
and TECO signed an agreement
in 2008 that restricts the planting
of any trees near a power line to a
list of approved trees. TECO can
keep our trees short, but the City
can't seem to restrict the height of
TECO's poles.
No citizen board democratically
chose the new look. Instead, the
future look of a Seventh Avenue
lined with the Chinese fan palms
was made by a few, just like all
decisions made by the communists.
What's next? Will they replace
our cortaditos with tea?

We sat down with the incoming
Florida House Minority Leader
Darryl Rouson and were impressed
by the man and his approach to
pushing for Democratic gains in the
House. He isn't approaching this
as a two- or four-year campaign to
take back the House. That would
be unrealistic. Instead, he wants
to take a long-term approach on
making gains each cycle.
To do this, he needs to broaden
the Party's fundraising, which has
for years been focused on trial law-
yers, education and unions.
He wants to invite business lob-


bies to contribute to the Party. For
a long time, they have given almost
exclusively to the GOP. The desire
is simple, but its execution is dif-
ficult and fraught with peril. The
trial lawyers are quick to punish
any representative who doesn't sup-
port their agenda 100 percent. The
teachers' unions have never seen a
charter school they like. For Rouson
to broaden the Party's fundraising,
he needs to get the Party's longtime
supporters to accept a little com-
promise.
Rouson has set a difficult but
necessary path for the House
Democrats to achieve gains and
success. He might be the man with
the fortitude to succeed.

The Plant City Police Depart-
ment is running a forfeiture ad-
vertisement through its attorney,
Michael Larrinaga, in La Gaceta.
The ad allows people to bring for-
ward a claim on the property that
was seized by the police. What's
interesting is what is being adver-
tised- $9,829 in cash, 291.5 grams
of marijuana, 56 grams of cocaine,
23 grams of crystal meth, 96 Xanax
pills, a Taurus 9 mm pistol and an
electronic scale.
Anyone want to tell the courts
that this stuff is theirs?

Nothing is easy in Ybor. Even
building a memorial to the victims
of 9/11 and another to honor sheriff
deputies who have fallen in the line
of duty can draw criticism. The con-
cerns are not about the memorials
themselves. They are the location,
orientation and size of the pocket
parks that have some concerned.
The Sheriffs Department seems
to be Committed to working with
- the various interests to find com-
promise.

The Pinellas County Democratic
Party will hold another Summer
Sunset Beach Bash at the Alden
Suites Beachfront Resort at St.
Pete Beach.
The event runs from 3 to 11 p.m.
on Saturday, August 24, right on
the beach. The event is great for
Democratic fellowship and net-
working in a very relaxed environ-
ment.
The party is selling advanced
tickets for $25 per person and has
arranged for great room rates. Call
727-327-2796 for more information.

Will Alex Sink run for governor?
Even her friends can't be sure,
but she will soon make a decision.
This week's Silhouettes on page 14
reveals things you- may not know
about Alex Sink.

OiVnionns To Io
By Joe O'Neill


Nan Rich
Gubernatorial candidate
Nan Rich* hit town last week-
end. She was politely wel-
comed by the Tiger Bay Club
of Tampa and properly cov-
ered by local media.
As still the only major de-
clared Democratic candidate
for Florida governor, she has
earned that asterisk. But she
has also picked up another,
less-welcome one. While the
former Weston legislator has
spent a dozen years in Talla-
hassee, including as minority
leader in the Senate, she still
has major name-recognition
problems. Not good. And it
was embarrassing when she
wasn't allowed even a cameo
at the recent Jefferson-Jack-
son fundraising gala and par-
ty love-in.
As a result of the name-
game challenge, she also has
fund-raising questions. Con-
sequently, she has credibility

fice would want. Let alone one

unorthodox hustings gambit,
but her no-name-liberal-from-
South Florida candidacy is a
long shot.
So, why not show some
pragmatic savvy and some,
political guts? Voters, the
vast majority of whom are not
the embargo-loving, vendetta
crowd, would certainly know
her name as a result.
Local Plug Included
As we've seen, Tampa took
it on the civic chops recently
with the publication of George
Packer's The Unwinding: An
Inner History of the New Amer-
ica. Packer, a New Yorker
writer, used the Tampa area
as Exhibit A for the housing
crash and foreclosure hell.
So, nice timing for an up-
beat shout-out in New York
Magazine's travel piece: "Skip
the Beach in Tampa." The
lead is sure to induce a Bob
Buckhorn smile of validation.
"After decades of suburban
sprawl, this Gulf Coast city
has brought new life to its ne-
glected center by fixing up the
riverfront, repurposing aban-
doned spaces and embracing
its Cuban-American history."
Its lengthy list of highlights
includes: the Tampa River-
walk, Tampa Bay History
Center, Tampa Theatre, Cigar
City Brewery, the Don Vicente
de Ybor Historic Inn, the Flor-
idan Palace, the Oxford Ex-
change, the (45) casitas at the
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay,. The
Refinery, edison: food + drink
lab and Ciro's Speakeasy &
Supper Club. The section on
Ybor goes well beyond the Co-
lumbia Restaurant. It also ad-
vises sampling La Tropicana
Cafe and La Segunda Bakery,
visiting the Ybor City Museum
State Park, riding the TECO
Line Streetcar and, yes, grab-
bing a copy of La Gaceta.
Speaks Volumes
Ponder this: In 1991, the
top two majors at Yale Univer-
sity were history and English.
This year they were econom-
ics and political science. Can
never have enough derivative
hustlers and political consul-
tants. Sobering.
Media Musing
The death of James Gan-
dolfini aka Tony Soprano -
certainly shocked us all last
week. He was a gifted actor,
an uber popular antihero icon
and by all accounts a helluva
nice guy. He will be missed
on multiple levels. That said,
it certainly was surprising
when, on the NBC Nightly
News, -anchor Brian Williams
prefaced the lengthy news ac-
count of Gandolfini's passing
with this lead: "It was one of
those 'Where-were-you-when-
you-heard-the-news?' mo-
ments."
That didn't resonate. My
short list of events so tragical-
ly traumatizing that they re-
main seared in detailed mem-
bry context is still limited to
John F. Kennedy's assassina-
tion, the Challenger explosion
and the 9/11 attack. I hope I
never lengthen that list.
Mayoral Moves
We've all noticed, of course,
that Bob Buckhorn, Tampa's
cheerleader-in-chief, is riding


in this week's St. Pete Pride
Carnivale parade. Some see it
as Mayor Bob's way of wasting
no opportunity to undermine
parochialism and market
Tampa, even within Tampa
Bay. If he can personally woo
more LBGT business to Tam-
pa, why not?
And speaking of wooing,
Mayor Bob was in New York
last week on business with
the Hillsborough County Eco-
nomic Development Corp. But
it wasn't business as usual
once the meet-and-greet with
financial services firms was
over. There he was at Yankee
Stadium hanging out by the
visitors' dugout before a Rays-
Yankee game. And, yes, Rays'
principal owner Stuart Stern-
berg was very much a part of
the pre-game scene with a no-
tably Tampa touch.
Gun Restrictions
-This qualifies as.progress.
Last month the Florida
Legislature passed almost
unanimously a bill that sur-
prised some gun rights sup-
porters. All it needs is Gov.
Rick Scott's signature, and it
becomes law.
No, it doesn't ban, say, as-
sault weapons or high-capac-
ity magazines. Nor does it re-
strict concealed carry permits
or refine "stand your ground"
law. This is still Florida. But it
would limit gun purchases by
preventing some -mentally ill
people from buying them.
Current Florida law pro-
hibits those committed in-
voluntarily under the Baker
Act, which applies to people
deemed a danger to them-
selves or others, from buying
a firearm. Under the proposed
legislation, this prohibition
would also apply to those
who voluntarily seek mental
health treatment after be-
ing examined under Florida's
Baker Act statutes.
If Gov. Scott is looking for
cover, he has the blessing of
Marion Hammer, NRA icon
and founder of United Sports-
men of Florida. If he is look-
ing for further justification,
there's always this: Why, even
in Florida, would you not keep
all Baker Acters away from
guns?
But this is progress.

More people give Alex Sink
advice than probably know
who she is. Banking dynamo,
former Chief Financial Officer,
former gubernatorial candidate
- when the public thinks of
Alex Sink, these are the things
that come to mind.

was a down-home girl from
North Carolina who grew up


really enamored of the interna-

and we went straight to Sierra

we went to Liberia and to the
Congo. I taught at American
schools there.

She ran in 2006, defeat-
ing Tom Lee, and took office in
2007. While she oversaw the
state's finances, she thought
about throwing her own hat
into the gubernatorial ring.
In 2010, she ran for gov-
ernor. It was an intense race
and she was narrowly edged
out by Rick Scott. Throughout
that time, McBride provided his
support and feedback concern-
ing her aspirations. "He was
my sounding board and I was
his sounding board. Most of
the time, we were ideologically
aligned. We were both very,
very committed Democrats and
activists. He was always doing
pro-bono work. I was always
doing volunteer work. We never
had any differences in terms
of things we wanted to be in-
volved in or active in. He was
an important part of my life a
good partner," she emphasized.
Sink's relationship with her
husband, sadly, had a sudden
and tragic end. Before Christ-
mas in 2012, McBride suffered
a heart attack during a family
vacation in North Carolina and
suddenly passed away. De-
spite the circumstances, she
is holding up well. "I'm okay...
I'm doing all right. I have lots
of friends, lots of support and
lots of family. I'm very happy,
because both of our children
decided to come home for the
summer. The house is full of
dogs and kids. It's a lot to get
used to. They're doing all right.
My daughter was very close to
her father, in particular we
all miss him...we all miss him.
It's...part of life. He was not in
great health and maybe the
suddenness of his death spared
him from some long, not-very-
pleasant consequences." The
pain of his passing is still very
much evident, as Sink brushed
away a tear.
McBride was remembered
by legions of public servants
and friends nationwide. Sink
was humbled by the number
of people who showed up at his
funeral service. "It was unbe-
lievable. There were 1,000 peo-
ple there. It made me feel good,
really good. The service and
having all the people there -was
a really uplifting experience.
Just seeing so many people
show up and enjoy the experi-
ence and the memories...it was
a very dignified service," she
recalled. "In fact, we're getting
ready to go to Arlington. We're
going to put Bill's remains at
Arlington this summer. We're
excited about that." As a young
man, McBride was a Marine of-
ficer.
McBride was also fondly
remembered by a very promi-
nent national figure. Sink, her
daughter and son-in-law re-
cently took a trip to New Or-
leans. "We were just walking


down the street in the French
Quarter. Somebody said, 'Oh,
,Bill Clinton's down there!' I
looked down the street two
or three blocks and saw this
sihoek of white hair... all this
commotion. I said, 'Oh, Lexi,
let's hurry up, wave, see if we
can say hello or something!'
He actually had already gotten
in his car and he was going to
drive in our direction. We were
waving like crazy and frustrat-
ed because he was looking in
the other direction. At the last
minute, he turns around, looks
our way I'm waving like crazy
- he turned around, looked at
the driver and said, 'Stop the
car.'"
She added, "He stopped
right in the middle of the street
and we probably had about a
five-minute conversation. He
campaigned with Bill and then
he came back down and cam-
paigned with me when I was
running for governor. Bill had
gone to the White House it
did a big seminar on attorneys
providing pro-bono legal ser-
vices and Bill was invited to be
one of the speakers. We always
had a good relationship with
Bill Clinton he's an incredible
guy."
These days, Sink is hard
at work as a senior advisor at
Hyde Park Capital Partners,
representing South Florida.
She also is on the board of di-
rectors of Florida Next (www.
floridanext.org), a non-profit
organization dedicated to pro-
moting an entrepreneurial spir-
it among young Florida profes-
sionals.
"After the last election, I
kind of wanted to follow my
passion. One of the things I got
really interested in was the way
we should rebuild the Florida
economy for the 21st century
and not have us go back to
the tried-and-true, comfortable
economy based on just assum-
ing we're going to have visitors
come here all the time and re-
tirees moving here. That's the
way we get in trouble. That cre-
ates bubbles. We were in the
ultimate bubble for almost six
years," she emphasized. The
non-profit's mission is to en-
courage young professionals to
be attracted to and stay in
the Sunshine State.
She still has lots of fire
about what she'd like to see in
Florida politics. She stated that
the three issues that concern
her are leadership, education
and the environment.
While there is some specula-
tion that she might make an-
other run for governor, she is
tight-lipped. However, she is
hopeful about the future. Her
current plans encompass fam-
ily and fun.
"We actually just got back
from a fishing trip to the Keys...
it was at the time of the full
moon in May and June. The
mutton snapper fishing is very
good. We were out on the water
all-day Saturday.. .you can tell!"
she said, showing off a sun tan.
"Catching mutton snapper and
grouper was something Bill re-
ally enjoyed doing...he loved
fishing and our whole family
enjoys fishing. We'll do a little
bit of that and well spend some
time over in the Bahamas... it's
beautiful there in the summer."
She added, proving that
home is where the heart is, "I'm
going to North Carolina to visit
my family." Alex Sink may seem
like the consummate business-
woman, but in the end, it's all
about family.

The Tampa Bay Times re-
cently headlined Ernest Hoop-
er's column with "Education
Isn't Complete Without U.S.
History Course." His message
was prompted by a recent re-
port from the American Coun-
cil of Trustees and Alumni
that questioned the complete-
ness of higher education in
Florida. It turns out that only
one of our public universities
requires students to take any
history class at all.
It's not that STEM classes
(science, technology, engi-
neering, and math) should
be ignored, but its recent em-
phasis is wholly inappropriate
in a democracy. If voters are
ignorant of history, govern-
ment, sociology and yes,
Rick Scott, anthropology we
literally put our lives and free-
dom at risk. A great way to
build a fascist state is to pop-
ulate it with technocrats who
have no knowledge of world
literature, the humanities, or
how we got where we are.
There's a reason why the
most ancient written word
is poetry, and indeed poetry
abdut history. In such sagas,
people told their story to the
next generation, and humans
came to understand who we
are by knowing who we were.
That's how we learn.. Learn-
ing from the past, in fact, is
the only way to learn.
Even in technical subjects
such as engineering, every-
thing is based on learning
from past mistakes. When a
building or bridge fell down,
early engineers figured out
the reasons why and learned
from that. They still do, as
there simply is no learning
unrelated to the past. His-
tory matters in every field of
endeavor.
It especially matters in gov-
ernment, where every citizen
is a "governor", who makes
fundamental policy decisions
when they vote. Those vot-
ers affect not only their own
lives, but also and especially
the lives of millions of others.
Having some genuine, knowl-
edge on which to base that
vote is infinitely more impor-
tant than encouraging every
student to learn trigonometry.
** **
Ignorance abounds. Nor
is there a golden past when
we were more knowledgeable
about history and govern-


ment. When my 'husband was
a lieutenant in the Army, we
played bridge with a couple
in which the husband was a
captain (a higher rank than
lieutenant, in case that is an-
other fundamental on which
someone failed to educate
you). This was during the
Vietnam War, when a captain
might command as many as
200 troops, and yet this man
was appallingly ignorant of
the government he had sworn
to uphold. He truly believed
that every state was required
to elect one Democrat and one
Republican to the US Senate!
Not only did he have. no
knowledge of the fact that
the Constitution says nothing
about political parties, he re-
fused to accept that the oth-
ers of us and. certainly not
his wife might know more
about it. And, of course, to be
a captain, he had to have been
a college graduate.
A few years later, I was
teaching high school in Mas-
sachusetts (American history,
of course), and one day over
lunch, I mentioned to another
teacher that I was on World
War II. She was of Portuguese
heritage, but bom in Mas-
sachusetts, and she taught
Spanish. She hesitated for a
minute and then said, "I never
had a history class that got to
World War II. Umm, we did
win, didn't we?"
She was, of course, a col-
lege graduate. The reason
why her high-school classes
never got to the 1940s, obvi-
ously, was because her teach-
ers failed to plan. The most
probable reason for this fail-
ure is because those "history
teachers" were hired primar-
ily because of their ability to
coach some sport. For far too
long, school principals as-
sumed that anyone who could
read the textbook could teach
history an assumption they
never would make about math
or science.
My sister-in-law, who was
an excellent chemistry teach-
er, serves as an example of
this attitude: when there was
a history vacancy in her Mis-
souri school, the principal
assigned her to teach it, very
much against her will. She
knew that she knew nothing
about it and hated being in a
position where her ignorance
could show. This didn't both-

probably led to a lifelong ha-
tred of history on the part of
her poor students.

It isn't an easy subject to
teach, as history is complex
- and controversial. There
are simply many, many more
ways to go wrong with both
the facts and their possible in-
terpretations than is the case
with teaching something like
chemistry's periodic table or
geometry's postulates. I'm go-
ing to pull an example out of
the air: Florida's Armed Oc-
cupation Act of 1842. This is
a topic worth pondering, and
yet even to set out the context
requires context.
Florida was a US territory
then, not a state, and territo-
ries are governed by Congress
and by presidential appoin-
tees, not by residents. At the
end of the Second Seminole
War (and of course, we should
pause to point out that it was
not called the Second Semi-
nole War at the time, as no
one knew that there would be
a Third), Congress wanted to
divert professional troops to
an emerging war with Mexico.
Seminoles were to be confined
to southern Florida, and to
discourage them from going
north, Congress passed the
Armed Occupation Act. It
encouraged white settlers to
move to central Florida by giv-
ing them 160 acres of land.
Congress' intention was that
these civilians would take
over where the Army left.
About 1,300 land claims
were filed, including many
by women, before Congress
repealed the act six months
later. The repeal was not
because it was a failure: it
was because, in the view of
Florida's large landowners, it
was unfair. The era's planta-
tion aristocrats did not want
to compete with middle-class

farmers, and they had enough
power in Washington to get
the act revoked. It would,
however, serve as a model for
the 1862 Homestead Act that
settled the Midwest. That was
passed after Florida and other
Southern states left the Union
- and 1862 also was the year
that Dakota warriors took
advantage of the Civil War to
attack whites in western Min-
nesota.
See how many ways you
can go with this? You can
debate it from the perspec-
tive of the Native Americans,
the homesteaders, the current
landowners, and the Congress
- to say nothing of the women
and the slaves. You can make
it clear that the repeal of the
Florida act was an early ex-
ample of Southern states (or
at least their leaders) refusing
to accept federal aid. You can
make the analogy to incen-
tives offered abroad today for

to those of longtime residents.
Yet we don't even bother to
teach Florida history in high
school.
That is partly because
many professional historians
don't push for local history,
which they often see as too
parochial. I have to confess
that I once took that view, but
doing a four-volume.history of
women in every state taught
me that state history is a mi-
crocosm for national history.
That's also true of world histo-
ry, especially here in Florida,
where we have more centuries
of interaction with Cuba than
say, Connecticut. Globalism
is not new, and history should
be taught to emphasize that.
The problem is that most of
us who are adults now were
taught a narrow, memorized
version by white men who re-
ally were hired to coach bas-
ketball. That is not what the
subject is today, as young
people of both genders and
*all ethnicities are pushing
out the parochial. The Rush
Limbaughs of the world rail
against "revisionism" but
would they do the same when
content for STEM courses is
revised because of new knowl-
edge? We need those revi-
sions a more informed, more
thoughtful view of a world
that includes all of us.

REPRESENTATIVE


JAEET


Serving the people of Tampa in the Florida House is a
tremendous honor. This newsletter is an update on our work in
Tallahassee.
This year, we made progress on several tough issues facing
our state. We took on campaign finance and ethics reform,
strengthened education, and took on unscrupulous adult
internet cafes.


"This year, I went to Tallahassee with the
priorities of strengthening education,
expanding access to affordable health
care, ethics reform and protecting our. '.
natural resources. This is my report to
you on the 2013 legislative session."
Representative Janet Cruz


While we made progress on many issues, I was disappointed
the legislature failed to accept the return of our federal tax
dollars to provide expanded health care for Floridians and their
families. Had the measure passed, I believe it would have
created jobs and increased access to health care.
Please don't hesitate to contact me or my staff if you have any
questions or concerns. I am always glad to hear from you.
Sincerely,
Janet Cruz

A Tale of One Family's Pride:


Wilson W. Brown and the Great Locomotive Chase


By Emily Carney
Wilson Wright Brown sat in
his cold prison cell, plotting
his next move. His choices
were limited to either death by
hanging... or freedom.
The year was 1862 and the
country was embroiled in a
bitter war between the North
and South. By trade, he-was a
train engineer; by geographic
region, he was Confederate
soldier. Imagine his patriotic
duty, being tasked with hi-
jacking a train in an effort to
shorten the war by destroy-
ing the other side's valuable
infrastructure. Then, he and
his men were caught he was
sitting in a Confederate pris-
on, sentenced to death sen-
tenced to no life at all. Many of
his compatriots were already
hanged for their part in the hi-
jacking and subsequent train
chase.
This is just the beginning
of the story of Wilson Wright
Brown and his descendants,
which include Judge Ed Ward
and his daughter, attorney
Laura Ward. While Brown
fought valiantly for the future
of his country, his family also
fought right down the line -
to preserve his Congressional
Medal of Honor for posterity
and history.
The Great
Locomotive Chase
"It started April 12, 1862,
very early in the Civil War,"
began Judge Ward, who is a
great-grandson of Brown. On
this fateful day, the "Andrews
Raiders" came to Big Shanty,
Georgia, to steal a train called
the General in a famous in-
cident forevermore known
as "The Great Locomotive
Chase."
"A guy by the name of James
J. Andrews, who was a scout
and spy for the Union, decid-
ed he would ask for about 20
volunteers to move from Ohio
to penetrate and infiltrate the
Confederate lines as far south
at that time as Atlanta, Geor-
gia. These men shed their
uniforms they didn't exactly
know what was coming, but
they volunteered for a very im-
portant secret mission. They
were given some of the details
as they got closer to their ob-
jective. So they moved into an
area called Big Shanty, Geor-
gia, which is now Kennesaw,
Georgia.
The railroads, at that time,
were a massive part of the na-
tion's infrastructure. "Their
goal was to shorten the war
by destroying Confederate
supply lines and troop move-
. ments by using the railroads.
The railroads were very big
at that time and were used
very extensively during that
period to transport troops,
supplies, ammunition and so
on... Their goal was to tear up
a lot of track as they moved
north towards Chattanooga
and rejoin the Union forces...
and also to burn bridges and
trestles to substantially inter-
rupt the Confederate supply
lines and troop movements of
trains."
The secret mission, helmed
by Andrews, was soon un-
derway. "In the early morn-
ing hours of April 12, 1862,
these men boarded the train
that was the object and tar-
get of interest...these guys
were dressed in civilian at-
tire, so they wouldn't stand
out among the Confederate
soldiers they wouldn't have
gotten very far!" he laughed.
"As the Confederate sol-
diers and train personnel got
off of the General, they went
to the Lacy Hotel, which was
adjacent to the train station
and they went to breakfast at


that location. My great grand-





a just quietly moved

that location. My great-grand-
father, Wilson Brown, and his
comrades just quietly moved
in and took over the empty
train. My great-grandfather
was, by training, an engineer
so he kind of drew the short
straw to take off with the Gen-
eral while the crew and the
soldiers who had been on the
General on their way to Atlan-
ta were enjoying their break-

fuel supply for the engine was
also wood. So now they're say-

Lathan W. "Skip" Garcia

January 7, 1934 March 13, 2013
Lathan W. "Skip" Garcia passed away peacefully on
March 13, 2013, with his family at his side. Skip was born
in Tampa, Florida, to Pearl Alvarez and Augusto Garcia on
January 7, 1934. He grew up in Tampa with an older
brother, August, and attended Jesuit High School in
Tampa. After graduation, Skip came to Loyola University
Dental school in New Orleans. While he was at Loyola, he
was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame. After gradua-
tion, he and Johanna Maisano were married in 1957 and
traveled to Sidi Slimane, Morocco, where he completed a
two-year commitment in the Air Force as Captain. He
returned to Kenner, Lousiana to begin his dental practice
and his family with Johanna. Skip was an avid tennis
player, fisherman and golfer, but the most important things
in his life were his family and his faith. Over a 50-year
period, Skip maintained close friendships with those-who
he met during the annual Manresa Retreat.
Skip is survived by his wife, Johanna, and his children,
Jana Phillippi, Lisa Garcia, Michael Garcia (now
deceased) and Kevin (Laurie) Garcia. He is also survived
by his grandchildren, Garrett Phillippi. Katie Phillippi,
Nicholas and Matthew Garcia, and his brother-in-law,
Joseph (Gloria) Maisano.
Skippy's happy disposition and personality were like a
magnet for all of the friends that he made over a lifetime.
He will be missed by all of his friends in Louisiana and
Tampa.
A memorial Mass will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July
13, 2013, at St. Lawrence Catholic Church, 5225 N. Himes
Ave. Tampa, FL 33614. Father Richard Hermes of Jesuit

This brings us back to
story of Wilson Brown,
was sitting in prison, b
plotting his next move.
He and his remain-
ing raiders soon found
poultry was very useful.
"My great-grandfather
spent about two or three
months in prison. One
night, they were eating
chicken for their dinner.
They took the chicken
bones and were able to
extricate themselves from
the handcuffs that had
secured them in prison.
They overpowered the
guards. They made their
way back to Ohio it took
them a couple of months.
They slept in caves and
hollow logs. They were
pursued by hound dogs
and shot at several times
by the soldiers who were
following them, but they
were able to make it back
to Ohio."
Make it back he did -
and soon, he was lauded
as a hero by the Union.
Wilson Brown became
one of the first recipients
of the Congressional Med-
al of Honor, which- was
awarded to him by Presi-
dent Abraham Lincoln in
1863. He was recognized
for his efforts attempting
to shorten the war, brav-
ery and heroism. A legend
was born. Here is the ci-
tation for Brown's honor:

Fuller, the General's original
engineer, did receive a medal
from the State of Georgia.
Brown worked as a labor-
er following the years after
his amazing train chase and
nearly implausible escape
from prison. In his later years,
he would regale his grandchil-
dren, who called him "The Old
Raider," with stories about the
chase and what happened af-
terwards. They frequently dis-
missed the stories as the fic-
tions of an old man but all of
his stories were true. Wilson
Brown breathed his last on
December 27, 1916. He had
10 children and no will. This
fact would later create an ex-
tra, unexpected chapter add-
ing to the drama of his and
his descendants' lives.
The Pursuit of the
Medal of Honor
Brown died with his Medal
of Honor and a replacement
medal. In those days, wills
were not regarded as being im-
portant. The family remained
close-knit. Judge Ward's
grandmother, Addie Ward,
was one of Brown's children;
his father, Robert, frequently


had the medals in his posses-
sion. But Judge Ward made
it clear that the medals were
property of the family and not
one particular party: "If my
dad didn't have them, maybe
one of his cousins in Ann Ar-
bor, Michigan, would have
them or a cousin in Colum-
bus, Ohio. They would move
from family to family... it was
a random custody or posses-
sion of the medals." This ar-
rangement worked fine for 60
years.
"From 1916 to 1976...the
Brown family had an annual
reunion in honor of -Wilson
and all the other members of
the Brown family. It was pret-
,ty huge, because there were
10 children and they had a
lot of children. We would meet
in some park in the Toledo
area. One of the focal points of
our reunion get-togethers was
a display of the Congressional
Medals of Honors. They were
kept by my father. They were
in my basement while I was
growing up in an old desk,"
he related. Not knowing what
they were, a young Ward and

his friends would pin them
on their shirt's lapels, playing
"soldiers."
"Circa 1976, the reunions
began to subside and to wane,
because a lot of people like
my dad were getting older -
my mom was sick. They had
other interests. The reunions
were ceased. At the time the
reunions ended, it just so
happened that the medals
ended up in the possession
and temporary custody of one
of my aunts, who lived in Per-
rysburg, Ohio. When my aunt
became feeble, she gave the
medals to her son, who was
a great-grandson of Wilson
Brown his grandfather was
James Brown, who was one of
my grandmother's brothers.
"James Brown was living
with Wilson when he died he
had the medals. Eventually
James' granddaughter, Merle,
passed them on to her son,
who was a lawyer in the Tole-
do area. Just before his death,
he gave them to my cousin
Linda, who, like Laura, was
a great-great-granddaughter
of Wilson Brown. He told her
to hang onto the medals and

in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln for his efforts in attempting to shorten the Civil
War. In later years, the medals would be at the center of another sort of dispute.


make sure nothing happeried
to them. She took that literally
and she clung to the medals -
she wouldn't share them with
the rest of the family." Linda
kept the medals in a safety de-
posit box for 35 years.
The problem was that
Medals of Honor are essen-
tially willed to the descen-
dants of awardees as a frac-
tional share. "They really
descended to all the children
I have a fractional share;
my brother has a fractional
share; our cousins have frac-
tional shares." Judge Ward's
daughter, Laura, also has a
fractional share. "You can't
divide it. It's an undivided in-
terest...we're really all tenants
in common from a technical
standpoint of that personal
property," he explained.
The rest of the family want-
ed to display the medals in
a museum. The family was
hoping to see the medals dis-
played at the Smithsonian in
Washington, D.C., the South-
ern Museum of Civil War and
Locomotive History in Ken-
nesaw, Georgia or the Ruth-
erford B. Hayes Presidential
Center in Ohio. Linda wanted
to put the. medals on display
at a VA clinic in Toledo, Ohio.
"That was her choice. We
said, That doesn't seem quite
right.' My niece, Becky, and
I talked to Linda. I said, 'I'll
come up from Florida and
Becky will come: up from
Cleveland. We'll sit down and
talk about it. We've got to re-
solve this, in our family, with-
out a dispute.' She said, Well,
I don't i'eally -want -to' talk
.about it. I'm going to put them
in this, VA clinic- that's being
built in Toledo, Ohio.'" Linda's
.mind was made up about the
future of the medals.
"All of the' other hundred or
so family members who had
,an interest in this thing said,
'No. That's not right. We don't
want that.' We actually, as a
last resort, had to file a law-
suit in Wood County, in Bowl-
ing Green, Ohio that's the
county seat where the medals
resided. It was the only way we
were to get the medals out of
the safety deposit box and get
a chance to put them in a bet-
ter setting of a museum." The
plaintiffs in the case were all
of Brown's descendants, save
for Linda. The family conduct-
ed surveys and polls of where
they wanted the medals to go
and presented them to the
court. Linda's defense was a
statute of limitations; howev-
er, the law states if one if to
possess these. medals exclu-
sively, interested parties must
be notified.
The lawsuit was filed in
early 2011. Just this month,
it was settled. It was found
that no member of the fam-
ily owns the medals outright
each member shares a frac-
tional portion of the medals.
The original medal will go on
display at the VA clinic in To-
ledo, while the replacement
medal will be displayed at The
Southern Museum in Ken-
nesaw, Georgia. This location
is particularly poignant for
Brown's descendants The
General is also displayed on
the museum's grounds, al-
though it is now painted red.
The family recently held a
reunion. Emotions ran high
regarding the reacquisition
of the medal. Judge Ward's
cousin, Craig, brought his
trumpet to the reunion to
play "Taps" when the medal
was presented. "I had tears in
my eyes as Taps' was being,
played. I had so many memo-
ries about the entire episode,"
Judge Ward related.

There is one local busi-
ness that's not afraid to say
it's gone to the dogs.
There is no doubt that
Pilar Gonzalez, one of the
owner's of Pilar's Pet Resort
(located at 2609 E. 7th Ave.),
was meant to work with ani-
mals. "I loved animals all my
life since I was little... in my.
country, Colombia, it used
to be that the dogs stay on
the patio; they couldn't come
inside. Now, things have
changed. Now everybody
has them inside, but at the
time, no. I remember I used
to go to my mother's friend's
house. I'd knock on the door
and ask, 'Can I walk your
dog?' That was a long time
ago!"
She added, "Little by little,
it brought me to this." Gon-
zalez had a dog while she at-
tended school in Bogota; the
dog would meet up with her
during breaks. It was already
clear she had a special way
with our canine friends. "In
my house, we had one that
was a Boxer. but she was

Day care and overnight
boarding services range from
$20 to $40 a day. For more
information and a full price
list, call Pilar's Pet Resort at
241-1408.
Is it hard to live and play
with sometimes overenthu-
siastic dogs (as opposed to
grumpier, more sedate cats)


24 hours a day, seven days
a week? Pilar enthused that
her boarders are well-be-
haved and obedient: "They
stay where you are...they're
like human companions! To
get them to the other side,
we tell the humans to go
over there... and they play!"
As for now, several board-
ers are all played-out, pre-
ferring to snore away in the
nap area.

on the resort's playground.


Gonzalez with Blackie
always on the patio. I'd wait
until I'd go to bed I'd open
the door and let her in my
bed! There was a big fight
with father 'She's not in
your bed, she's in the patio!'"
Pilar met her husband,
German, while he was vaca-
tioning in Bogota; he was an
engineering student at the
University of South Florida.
In 1999, after years of go-
ing back-and-forth between
Tampa and Colombia, they
came here to stay. At the
time, Pilar was working with
her husband, drafting struc-
tural drawings.
The couple has two chil-
dren, Monica and Julian,
who sometimes work at their
parents' pet resort. The fam-
ily then lived on Harbour Is-
land. Monica took a job in
high school at a dry cleaners.
While she was there, she was
offered a job pet-sitting cats.
Pilar herself soon took a job
at the dry cleaning store,
happy to have personal in-
teraction after years of work-
ing on a computer, drafting.
One day, Monica asked her
to help with the cats. As it
is said, the rest was history
Gonzalez went into pet sit-
ting on Harbour Island.
Little by little, she began
watching dogs, walking them
at noon. "People would ask,
'Pilar, we're going to travel -
can you keep them in your
apartment?' I'd say, 'Yes, yes,
why not?' Because they were
like that..." She pointed to
her current tenants, asleep
in their nap cots, lulled by
soft music.
She was struck by the
gentleness and obedient be-
havior of dogs, sans cages.
"When I started keeping them
in my apartment the day
we had 24 in my apartment
- I saw them together. They
are pack animals...I don't see
any problems to keep them
together. There are going to
be fights, yes, but if you keep
them calm and don't let them
play rough, it's like being
with kids."


This brings the story to
one particular Fourth of
July, when she had 24 furry
creatures in her apartment.
"I was walking at 11 at night
with the dogs," she related.
She received a complaint
because one of the dogs,
as dogs tend to do, started
barking and running, and
was fined by her condomin-
ium association. She added,
"That's when I said, 'Okay, I
need something for them.'"
She initially scouted areas
in Channelside and around
where the 1-4 Connector is
being installed, but wasn't
able to find a place with ap-
propriate zoning. She even-
tually found a suitable lo-
cation in Ybor City. "So we
found this and this is almost
our third year!" she smiled.
The amount of pets board-
ed (at this time, dogs only,
but Gonzalez said they in-
tend to eventually board cats
and other animals) varies.


"Sometimes we only have 12,
but at the end of the day,
we'll have 30!" she reported.
Many of Gonzalez' clients will
have their dogs at the facil-
ity for day care; some keep
their animals there overnight
if they travel. The pet resort
is well-equipped, with a nap
area, various play rooms, or-
ganized file cabinets for each
pet (for food and medicines),
a playground and even hotel-
esque beds for sleeping over-
night. Again, the resort is
cage-free, meaning the dogs
can come and go as they
please.
Gonzalez lives at the re-
sort with the dogs. "That's
our room, right there!" she
laughed. Gonzalez' own dog,
Blackie, an 18-year-old poo-
dle imported from Colombia,
stays with her at the resort.
It is open 24 hours, a con-
venience for clients who may
have to travel at a moment's
notice. An agility track (a

We should remember that
when placed on the altar of
freedom, lives are never lost;
They are given.
Those lives sacrificed for
our good name have ensured
that our inalienable rights
shall not be trampled, but
grow tall. Among these rights:
We have freedom of speech,
Not freedom to say any-
thing.
We have the freedom to
bear arms,
Not to shoot them.
We have the freedom to as-


semble,
Not riot.
We have freedom of reli-
gion,
And from religion.
We have a right to a trial by
jury,
Not fire.
Our freedoms make us great,
but our laws make us just.
There are times, however,
when we become discour-
aged with our Country, but
we must remember that the
Country is always great, even
when man is not.
And we are men.


We are not Communists.
We are not Socialists.
We are not subjects.
We are Americans.
In matters of independence
and all things patriotic, we
are enamored with remember-
ing what makes our Country
a shining beacon of freedom.
While we reflect upon our
place at the right hand of righ-
teousness, we should not only
praise what our nation means
to us, but what it does not.

American flag over the table
as a bright and festive table
runner." HGTV even added,
"Use a nylon flag so spills can


be easily wiped off and the flag
can later be hung with pride
on a flag pole."
Those who are well-versed
in flag etiquette know that us-
inR our nation's flag in this


manner is a huge no-no. To
HGTV's credit, the channel
later issued an apology, say-
ing, "This was a regrettable
use of our flag and it never
should have happened. We

sincerely apologize and have
removed the post from our

our fans that HGTV is proud
of the American flag and ,ev-
erything it symbolizes for our
people."
It almost doesn't need to be
said that our nation's flag rep-
resents so much more than
a mere decorative function.
While the flag is a symbol of
our country, it also is used to
honor, the lives and achieve-
ments of those who have fall-
en to defend and protect our
nation. For those who will
proudly fly the grand old flag
this Fourth, here is a primer
on the U.S. flag etiquette.
A History of the U.S. Flag
Code
The "Flag Code" is part of
the United States Code, which
is described as "the official,
subject matter order, compi-
lation of the Federal laws of a
general and permanent nature
that are currently in force."
The U.S. Code is compiled by
the Office of the Law Revision
Counsel of the United States


As seen in retail
House of Representatives.
This code has 50 areas of sub-
ject matter that encompass
general provisions, Congress,
the president, the armed forc-
es and much more... including
the U.S. flag.
Prior to Flag Day being es-
tablished on June 14, 1923,
there were no federal or state

regulations on how flags
were to be handled and dis-
played. On that day, the Na-
tional Flag Code was adopted
by the National Flag Confer-
ence in conjunction with the
U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and 66
other national groups. While
a few changes were made to
the Flag Code in 1924, nearly
20 years passed before these
rules were made public law.
On June 22, 1942, Congress
passed a joint resolution; it
was amended on December
22 and became Public Law
829; Chapter 806, 77th Con-
gress, second session (it is
now current through Public
Law 113-9).
Title 4, Chapter 1 of the
U.S. Code discusses the U.S.
flag at length; its eighth sec-
tion is simply titled, "Respect
for flag." Contained within
that section are the definitive
rules for handling and dis-
playing the nation's flag.

be carried flat or horizontally,
but always aloft and free.
(d) The flag should never
be used as wearing apparel,
bedding, or drapery. It should
never be festooned, drawn
back, nor up, in folds, but al-
ways allowed to fall free. Bun-
ting of blue, white, and red,
always arranged with the blue
above, the white in the middle,
and the red below, should be
used for covering a speaker's
desk, draping the front of the
platform, and for decoration
in general.
(e) The flag should never be
fastened, displayed, used, or
stored in such a manner as
to permit it to be easily torn,
soiled, or damaged in any
way.
(f) The flag should never be
used as a covering for a ceil-
ing.
(g) The flag should never
have placed upon it, nor on
any part of it, nor attached to
it any mark, insignia, letter,
word, figure, design, picture,
or drawing of any nature.
(h) The flag should never
be used as a receptacle for re-
ceiving, holding, carrying, or
delivering anything.
(i) The/flag should never be
used for advertising purposes
in any manner whatsoever.
It should not be embroidered
on such articles as cushions
or handkerchiefs and the
like, printed or otherwise im-
pressed on paper napkins or
boxes or anything that is de-
signed for temporary use and
discard. Advertising signs
should not be fastened to a
staff or halyard from which
the flag is flown.
(j) No part of the flag should
ever be used as a costume or
athletic uniform. However, a
flag patch may be affixed to
the uniform of military per-
sonnel, firemen, policemen,
and members of patriotic or-
ganizations. The flag repre-
sents a living country and
is itself considered a living
thing. Therefore, the lapel flag
pin being a replica, should be
worn on the left lapel near the
heart.
(k) The flag, when it is in
such condition that it is no
longer a fitting emblem for
display, should be destroyed
in a dignified way, preferably
by burning."

(Continued from page 11)
The U.S. Code, by the
way, does not impose penal-
ties on citizens for misusing
the flag. Those decisions are
left to states and the federal
government for the District of
Columbia. In addition, states
have their own flag laws.
While the Flag Code may be
tested, the text above remains
the definitive article 'in terms
of appropriately displaying
and handling the flag. How-
- ever, some organizations, in-
famous characters, sports
figures and celebrities have
made public missteps, some
good-intentioned, some just
plain goofy.
Controversial Uses
of the Flag
Here are some notable in-
stances where flag etiquette
was breached, despite per-
haps honorable intentions by
the wearer or displayer.
American Apparel? Abbie
Hoffman's flag shirt, 1968 -
Social activist Abbie Hoffman
was arrested in October 1968
for wearing his infamous
American flag shirt. At the
time, most states had anti-
flag desecration laws on the
books. He stated that he was
going to speak to the House of
Representatives in the man-
ner ofthe founding fathers -
he believed the shirt was a pa-
triotic move. Hoffman's case
was eventually overturned on
appeal,, but not before the ac-
tivist was forever associated


Force General Richard Myers
wore a flag shirt during a trib-
ute to Vietnam veterans on
Memorial Day that year. For-
mer California governor and
actor Arnold Schwarzenegger,


Hey, soldier!
with the flag shirt and his
court case.
Other similar examples: At
the 1992 Barcelona Games,
Michael Jordan, Magic John-
son and Charles Barkley
from the basketball Dream
Team draped U.S. flags over
their shoulders to hide a rival
sponsor's logo on their jack-
ets when they received their
gold medals. In 1985's Rocky
IV, the all-American Rocky
Balboa fought Soviet bad
guy Ivan Drago to avenge the
death of his former opponent
and best friend, Apollo Creed.
While no one doubted Rocky's
patriotism, the image of him
draped in an American flag
was a questionable choice.
Even high-profile govern-
mental officials have made
apparel blunders: in 2005,

an Austrian immigrant, once

walked around with an Ameri-
can flag around my shoulders
all day long." Arnold, you're

The High-Flying Grand Old Flag: Dos and


Don'ts of U.S. Flag Etiquette


(Continue4iwm page 14)
In 1989 and 1990, the U.S.
Supreme Court ruled anti-
flag desecration statutes to
be unconstitutional. At pres-
ent time, the fact that the U.S.
Flag Code is rarely enforced
has led to many citizens wear-
ing the flag on shirts, pants or
other apparel in a bid to cel-
ebrate America while ironi-
cally violating the Flag Code,
-which explicitly states the flag
should never be used as ap-
parel.
It doesn't take long to find
many clothing websites (such
as major retailers Target and
Old Navy) that sell a plethora
of flag shirts around this time
of year. Apparel also includes
flag underwear, flag-festooned
bathing suits, bandannas,
jogging' suits (such as the
one pictured here being worn
by a blithely unaware male
model) and generally any item
of clothing displaying a flag.
Keep in mind as apparel, a
flag's image would most like-
ly end up touching the walls
of a stinky clothes hamper -
which is not its intended use.
That being said, there is noth-
ing stopping a patriotic reveler
from sporting red, white and
blue on Independence Day.
As stated in the U.S. Flag


Code, military members are
allowed to wear flags on their
uniforms; however, these flags
are of the Velcro-on variety,
meaning they can be removed
and properly stowed while the
uniform is being washed or
pressed. A flag should-never
be allowed to be thrown on
the ground.

a "Three-Piece Americana
Picnic Set with Throw, Mat
& Flag" for $34.99 (reduced
from $99.99). The throw and
mat each carrying the flag's
image were meant to "dress
up" homes and picnic tables
on Independence Day. (Inci-
dentally, Groupon also sells
an American Flag-themed
flat iron, in case you'd like to
straighten your hair for the
Fourth. This Flag Code-viola-
tor retails for $29.99.)

According to U.S. Flag
Code, flags cannot be used in
any manner where it can be
carelessly flung underneath
something else, thrown on
the ground or in a wastebas-
ket as trash. The flag is also
not allowed to have any items
such as food, water or mer-
chandise touching it. While it
is inadvisable to use the U.S.
flag's image in a decorative
manner, those who are fas-
tidious about table decora-
tions can always use a snap-
py red, white and blue theme.
Other things to watch out


P 'Ii


Let it fly free!
for: The flag is meant to fly
free and upright, not upside
down (the rock band Rage
Against the Machine lived up
to their name and did this
for some reason at the 2000
Democratic Convention).

Remember, the flag is con-
sidered "a living thing" and
a representation of a living
country, the United States.
President Woodrow, Wilson
elegantly summed up his
thoughts about the mean-
ing of the flag in 1917, dur-
ing World War I: "This flag,
which we honor and under
which we serve, is the em-
blem of our unity, our pow-
er, our thought and purpose
as a nation. It has no other
character than that which
we give it from generation to
generation. The choices are
ours. It floats in majestic si-
lence above the hosts that ex-
ecute those choices, whether
in peace or in war. And yet,
though silent, it speaks to us
- speaks to us of the past,
or the men and women who
went before us, and of -the
records they wrote upon it."
This Independence Day, re-
member to let your flag fly
free in accordance with flag
etiquette.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S INAUGURAL


President Abraham Lin-
coln's two inaugural address-
es discuss the challenges felt
by a divided nation approach-
ing and during wartime.
Here is the full text of the
first inaugural speech, made
Monday, March 4, 1861:
*****
Fellow-Citizens of the Unit-
ed States:
IN compliance with a cus-
tom as old as the Government
itself, I appear before you to
address you briefly and to
take in your presence the oath
prescribed by the Constitu-
tion of the United States to be
taken by the President "before
he enters on the execution of
this office."


I do not consider it neces-
sary at present for me to dis-
cuss those matters of admin-
istration about which there is
no special anxiety or excite-
ment.
Apprehension seems to ex-
ist among the people of the
Southern States that by the
accession of a Republican
Administration their property
and their peace and personal
security, are to be endangered.
There has never been any rea-
sonable cause for such ap-
prehension. Indeed, the most
ample evidence to the con-
trary has all the while existed
and been open to their inspec-
tion. It is found in nearly all
the published speeches of


him who now addresses you.
I do but quote from one of
those speeches when I declare
that-
I have no purpose, directly
or indirectly, to interfere with
the institution of slavery in
the States where it exists. I
believe I have no lawful right
to do so, and I have no incli-
nation to do so.
Those who nominated and
elected me did so with full
knowledge that I had made
this and many similar decla-
rations and had never recant-
ed them; and more than this,
they placed in the platform for
my acceptance, and as a law
to themselves and to me, the

clear and emphatic resolution
which I now read:
Resolved, That the mainte-
nance inviolate of the rights of
the States, and especially the
right of each State to order
and control its own domestic
institutions according to its
own judgment exclusively, is
essential to that balance of
power on which the perfection
and endurance of our politi-
cal fabric depend; and we de-
nounce the lawless invasion
by armed force of the soil of
any State or Territory, no mat-
ter what pretext, as among
the gravest of crimes.
I now reiterate these senti-
ments, and in doing so I only
press upon the public at-
tention the most conclusive
evidence of which the case is
susceptible that the property,
peace, and security of no sec-
tion are to be in any wise en-
dangered by the now incom-
ing Administration. I add, too,

that all the protection which,
consistently with the Consti-
tution and the laws, can be
given will be cheerfully given
to all the States when law-
fully demanded, for whatever
cause-as cheerfully to one
section as to another.
There is much controversy
about the delivering up of fu-
gitives from service or labor.
The clause I now read is as
plainly written in the Consti-
tution as any other of its pro-
visions:
No person held to service or
labor in one State, under the
laws thereof, escaping into
another, shall in consequence
of any law or regulation there-
in be discharged from such
service or labor, but shall be
delivered up on claim of the
party to whom such service or
labor may be due.
It is scarcely questioned
that this provision was in-
tended by those who made it
for the reclaiming of what we


call fugitive slaves; and the
intention of the lawgiver is
the law. All members of Con-
gress swear their support to
the whole Constitution-to
this provision as much as to
any other. To the proposition,
then, that slaves whose cases
come within the terms of this
clause "shall be delivered up"
their oaths are unanimous.
Now, if they would make the
effort in good temper, could
they not with nearly equal
unanimity frame and pass
a law by means of which to
keep good that unanimous
oath?
There is some difference of
opinion whether this clause
should be enforced by nation-
al or by State authority, but
surely that difference is not a
very material one. If the slave
is to be surrendered, it can be
of but little consequence to
him or to others by which au-
thority it is done. And should
anyone in any case be content

that his oath shall go unkept
on a merely unsubstantial
controversy as to how it shall
be kept?
Again: In any law upon
this subject ought not all the
safeguards of liberty known
in civilized and humane juris-
prudence to be introduced, so
that a free man be not in any
case surrendered as a slave?
And might it not be well at the
same time to provide by law
for the enforcement of that
clause in the Constitution
which guarantees that "the
citizens of each State shall be
entitled to all privileges and
immunities of citizens in the
several States"?
I take the official oath to-
day with no mental reserva-
tions and with no purpose
to construe the Constitution
or laws by any hypercriti-
cal rules; and while I do not
choose now to specify particu-
lar acts of Congress as proper
to be enforced, I do suggest
that it will be much safer for
all, both in official and private
stations, to conform to and
abide by all those acts which
stand unrepealed than to vio-
late any of them trusting to
find impunity in having them
held to be unconstitution-
al.
It is seventy-two years
since the first inauguration of
a President under our Nation-
al Constitution. During that
period fifteen different and
greatly distinguished citizens
have in succession adminis-
tered the executive branch of


the Government. They have
conducted it through many
perils, and generally with
great success. Yet, with all
this scope of precedent, I now
enter upon the same task for
the brief constitutional term of
four years under great and pe-
culiar difficulty. A disruption
of the Federal Union, hereto-
fore only menaced, is now for-
midably attempted.
I hold that in contempla-
tion of universal law and of
the Constitution the Union
of these States is perpetual;
Perpetuity is implied, if not
expressed, in the fundamen-
tal law of all national govern-
ments. It is safe to assert that
no government proper ever
had a provision in its organic
law for its own termination.
Continue to execute all the
express provisions of our Na-
tional Constitution, and the
Union will endure forever, it
being impossible to destroy
it except by some action not
provided for in the instrument
itself.
Again: If the United States
be not a government proper,
but an association of States in
the nature of contract merely,
can it, as a contract, be peace-
ably unmade by less than all
the parties who made it? One
party to a contract may violate
it-break it, so to speak-but
does it not require all to law-
fully rescind it?
Descending from these
general principles, we find
the proposition that in legal

ABRAHAft LINCOLN'S INAUGURAL


(continued from page 19)
contemplation the Union is
perpetual confirmed by the
history of the Union itself. The
Union is much older than the
Constitution. It was formed,
in fact, by the Articles of As-
sociation in 1774. It was ma-
tured and continued by the
Declaration of Independence
in 1776. It was further ma-
tured, and the faith of all the
then thirteen States expressly
plighted and engaged that it
should be perpetual, by the
Articles of Confederation in
1778. And finally, in 1787,
one of the declared objects
for ordaining and establishing
the Constitution was "to form
a more perfect Union."
But if destruction of the
Union by one or by a part only
of the States be lawfully pos-
sible, the Union is less perfect
than before the- Constitution,
having lost the vital element of
perpetuity.
It follows from these views
that no State upon its own
mere motion can lawfully get
out of the Union; that resolves
and ordinances to that effect
are legally void, and that acts
of violence within any State or
States against the authority of
the United States are insur-
rectionary or revolutionary,
according to circumstances.
I therefore consider that in
view of the Constitution and
the laws the Union is unbro-
ken, and to the extent of my
ability, I shall take care, as
the Constitution .itself ex-
pressly enjoins upon me,
that the laws of the Union be
faithfully executed in .all the
States. Doing this I deem to
be only a simple duty on my
part, and I shall perform it so
far as practicable unless .my


rightful masters, the Ameri-
can people, shall withhold the
requisite means or in some
authoritative manner direct
the contrary. I trust this will
not be regarded as a menace,
but only as the declared pur-
pose of the Union that it will
constitutionally defend and
maintain itself.
In doing this there needs to
be no bloodshed or violence,
and there shall be none unless
it be forced upon the national
authority. The power confided
to me will be used to hold, oc-
cupy, and possess the proper-
ty and places belonging to the
Government and to collect the
duties and imposts; but be-
yond what may be necessary
for these objects, there will be
no invasion, no using of force
against or among the people
anywhere. Where hostility to
the United States in any inte-
rior locality shall be so great
and universal as to prevent
competent resident citizens
from holding the Federal of-
fices, there will be no attempt
to force obnoxious strang-
ers among the people for that
object. While the strict legal
right may exist in the Govern-
ment to enforce the exercise
of these offices, the attempt
to do so would be so irritating
and so nearly impracticable
withal that I deem it better to
forego for the time the uses of
such offices.
The mails, unless re-
pelled, will continue to be
furnished in all parts of the
Union. So far as possible the
people everywhere shall have
that sense of perfect security
which is most favorable to
calm thought and reflection.
The course here indicated will
be followed unless current


events and experience shall
show a modification or change
to be proper, and in every case
and exigency my best discre-
tion will be exercised, accord-
ing to circumstances actually
existing and with a view and a
hope of a peaceful solution of
the-national troubles and the
restoration of fraternal sym-
pathies and affections.
That there are persons in
one section or another who
seek to destroy the Union at
all events and are glad of any
pretext to do it I will neither
affirm nor deny; but if there be
such, I need address no word
to them. To those, however,
who really love the Union may
I not speak?


Before entering upon so
grave a matter as the destruc-
tion of our national fabric,,
with all its benefits, its memo-
ries, and its hopes, would it
not be wise to ascertain pre-
cisely why we do it? Will you
hazard so desperate a step
while there is any possibil-
ity that any portion of the ills
you fly from have no real exis-
tence? Will you, while the cer-
tain ills you fly to are greater
than all the real ones you fly
from, will you risk the com-
mission of so fearful a mis-
take?
All profess to be content in
the Union if all constitutional
rights can be maintained. Is
it true, then, that any right


plainly written in the Con-
stitution has been denied? I
think not. Happily, the hu-
man mind is so constituted
that no party can reach to the
audacity of doing this. Think,
if you can, of a single instance
in which a plainly written
provision of the Constitution
has ever been denied. If by
the mere force of numbers a
majority should deprive a mi-
nority of any clearly written
constitutional right, it might
in a moral point of view justify
revolution; certainly would if
such right were a vital one.
But such is not our case.
All the vital rights of minori-
ties and of individuals are so

ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S INAUGURAL


(continued from page 20)
plainly assured to them by
affirmations and negations,
guaranties and prohibitions,
in the Constitution that con-
troversies never arise con-
cerning them. But no organic
law can ever be framed with
a provision specifically appli-
cable to every question which
may occur in practical ad-
ministration. No foresight can
anticipate nor any document
of reasonable length contain
express provisions for all pos-
sible questions. Shall fugitives
from labor be surrendered by
national or by State author-
ity? The Constitution does not
expressly say. May Congress
prohibit slavery in the Terri-
tories? The Constitution does
not expressly say. Must Con-
gress protect slavery in the
Territories? The Constitution
does not expressly say.
From questions of this
class spring all our constitu-
tional controversies, and we
divide upon them into ma-
jorities and minorities. If the
minority will not acquiesce,
the majority must, or the Gov-
ernment must cease. There is


no other alternative, for con-
tinuing the Government is ac-
quiescence on one side or the
other. If a minority in such
case will secede rather than
acquiesce, they make a prec-
edent which in turn will divide
and ruin them, for a minority
of their own will secede' from
them whenever a majority
refuses to be controlled by
such minority. For instance,
why may not any portion of
a new confederacy a year or
two hence arbitrarily secede
again, precisely as portions of
the present Union now claim
to secede from it? All who
cherish disunion sentiments
are now being educated to the
exact temper of doing this.
Is there such perfect iden-
tity of interests among the
States to compose a new
union as to produce harmony
only and prevent renewed se-
cession? .
Plainly the central idea of
secession is the essence of
anarchy. A majority held in
restraint by constitutional
checks and limitations, and
always changing easily with
deliberate changes of popu-


lar opinions and sentiments,
is the only true sovereign of a
free people. Whoever rejects it
does of necessity fly to anar-
chy or to despotism. Unanim-
ity is impossible. The rule of
a minority, as a permanent
arrangement, is wholly inad-
missible; so that, rejecting the
majority principle, anarchy or
despotism in some form is all
that is left.
I do not forget the position
assumed by some that con-
stitutional questions are to
be decided by the Supreme
Court, nor do I deny that such
decisions must be binding in
any case upon the parties to
a suit as to the object of that
suit, while they are also en-
titled to very high respect and
consideration in all parallel
cases by all other departments
of the Government. And while
it is obviously possible that
such decision may be errone-
ous in any given case, still the
evil effect following it, being
limited to that particular case,
with the chance that it may be
overruled and never become a
precedent for other cases, can
better be borne than could the
evils of a different practice.
At the same time, the candid
citizen must confess that if
the policy of the Government
upon vital questions affect-
ing the whole people is to be
irrevocably fixed by decisions
of the Supreme Court, the in-
stant they are made in ordi-
nary litigation between parties
in personal actions the people
will have ceased to be their
own rulers, having to that ex-
tent practically resigned their
Government into the hands of
that eminent tribunal. Nor is
there in this view any assault
upon the court or the judges.
It is a duty from which they
may not shrink to decide cases
properly brought before them,
and it is no fault of theirs if
others seek to turn their deci-
sions to political purposes.
One section of our country
believes slavery is right and


ought to be extended, while
the other believes it is wrong
and ought not to be extended.
This is the only substantial
dispute. The fugitive-slave
clause of the Constitution
and the law for the suppres-
sion of the foreign slave trade
are each as well enforced,
perhaps, as any law can ever
be in a community where the
moral sense of the people im-
perfectly supports the law
itself. The great body of the
people abide by the dry legal
obligation in both cases, and
a few break over in each. This,
I think, can not be perfectly
cured, and it would be worse
in both cases after the separa-
tion of 'the sections than be-
fore. The foreign slave trade,
now imperfectly suppressed,
would be ultimately revived
without restriction in one sec-
tion, while fugitive slaves, now
only partially surrendered,
would not be surrendered at
all by the other.
Physically speaking, we
can not separate. We can not
remove our respective sections
from each other nor build
an impassable wall between
them. A husband and wife
may be divorced and go out of
the presence and beyond the
reach of each other, but the
different parts of our country
can not do this. They can not
but remain face to face, and
intercourse, either amicable
or hostile, must continue be-
tween them. Is it possible,
then, to make that intercourse
more advantageous or more
satisfactory after separation
than before? Can aliens make
treaties easier than friends
can make laws? Can treaties
be more faithfully enforced
between aliens than laws can
among friends? Suppose you
go to war, you can not fight
always; and when, after much
loss on both sides and no gain
on either, you cease fighting,
the identical old questions, as
to terms of intercourse, are
again upon you.


This country, with its in-
stitutions, belongs to the
people who inhabit it. When-
ever they shall grow weary
of the existing Government,
they can exercise their con-
stitutional right of amending
it or their revolutionary right
to dismember or overthrow it.
I can not be ignorant of the
fact that many worthy and
patriotic citizens are desirous
of having the National Con-
stitution amended. While I
make no recommendation of
amendments, I fully recognize
the rightful authority of the
people over the whole subject,
to be exercised in either of the
modes prescribed in the in-
strument itself; and I should,
under existing circumstanc-
es, favor rather than oppose
a fair opportunity being af-
forded the people to act upon
it. I will venture to add that
to me the convention mode
seems preferable, in that it al-
lows amendments to originate
with the people themselves,
instead of only permitting
them to take or reject propo-
sitions originated by others,
not especially chosen for the
purpose, -and which might
not be precisely such as they
would wish to either accept
or refuse. I understand a pro-
posed amendment to the Con-
stitution-which amendment,
however, I have not seen-has
passed Congress, to the effect
that the Federal Government
shall never interfere with the
domestic institutions of the
States, including that of per-
sons held to service. To avoid
misconstruction of what I
have said, I depart from my
purpose not to speak of par-
ticular amendments so far as
to say that, holding such a
provision to now be implied
constitutional law, I have no
objection to its being made
express and irrevocable.
The Chief Magistrate de-
rives all his authority from the
people, and they have referred

est. All knew that this interest
was somehow the cause of the
war. To strengthen, perpetu-
ate, and extend this interest
was the object for which the
insurgents would rend the
Union even by war, while the
Government claimed no right
to do more than to restrict
the territorial enlargement of
it. Neither party expected for
the war the magnitude or the
duration which it has already
attained. Neither anticipated
that the cause of the conflict
might cease with or even be-
fore the conflict itself should
cease. Each looked for an eas-
ier triumph, and a result less
fundamental and astounding.
Both read'the same Bible and
pray to the same God, and
each invokes His aid against
the other. It may seem strange
that any men should dare to
ask a just God's assistance in
wringing their bread from the
sweat of other men's faces,
but let us judge not, that we
be not judged. The prayers of
both could not be answered.
That of neither has been an-
swered fully. The Almighty
has His own purposes. "Woe
unto the world because of of-
fenses; for it must needs be
that offenses come, but woe to
that man by whom the offense
cometh." If we shall suppose
that American slavery is one
of those offenses which, in
the providence of God, must
needs come, but which, hav-
ing continued through His
appointed time, He now wills
to remove, and that He gives
to both North and South this

any departure from those di-
vine attributes which the be-
lievers in a living God always
ascribe to Him? Fondly do we
hope, fervently do we pray,
that this mighty scourge of
war may speedily pass away.
Yet, if God wills that it con-
tinue until all the wealth piled
by the bondsman's two hun-
dred and fifty years of un-
requited toil shall be sunk,
and until every drop of blood
drawn with the lash shall be
paid by another drawn with
the sword, as was said three


thousand years ago, so still it
must be said "the judgments
of the Lord are true and righ-
teous altogether."
With malice toward none,
with charity for all, with firm-
ness in the right as God gives
us to see the right, let us
strive on to finish the work
we are in, to bind up the na-
tion's wounds, to care for him
who shall have borne the bat-
tle and for his widow and his
orphan, to do all which may
achieved and cherish a just
and lasting peace among our-
selves and with all nations.
