Weekend Open Thread: Malala Yousefzey, Naomi Klein, and Cri-Cri!




How perfect is this?

Malala Nobel Prize


In other heartening news, a prominent commenter here points us to this Stephen Colbert interview of Naomi Klein:


Thirdly, here is Chairman Vern’s musical offering for the week: “El Ropero,” the most beautiful and popular song by Mexican singer/songwriter/children’s radio host Francisco Gavilondo Soler, aka “Cri-Cri.”

This is your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about that, or anything else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of decency and decorum.

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
