Do you remember a guy named Gordon Bricken?  He was once the Mayor of Santa Ana.  The O.C. Register is reporting that Bricken has written a book about gravesites of conferate and union soldiers that can be found here in Orange County.

“His parents taught him to respect the history of the Civil War – to remember relatives who fought in battle, to know the stories of people killed and families uprooted. His mother once gave him a hand-sewn Confederate flag for his room,” according to the O.C. Register.

Bricken is originally from Kentucky, which was a Southern slave state.

About Zorro

Yes, Zorro is gay. Zorro is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in Santa Ana, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a good government advocate in Anaheim. Zorro is all the exploited, marginalized, oppressed minorities resisting and saying `Enough'. He or she is every minority who is now beginning to speak and every majority that must shut up and listen. He or she is every untolerated group searching for a way to speak. Everything that makes power and the good consciences of those in power uncomfortable -- this is Zorro.
