Carto dead

Willis Carto, Far-Right Figure and Holocaust Denier, Dies at 89 (NYT)
     You’ll recall that right-wing Trustee Steven Frogue was a fan of some of Mr. Carto’s publications and invited speakers, some of whom were affiliated with Carto’s “Liberty Lobby,” to a Saddleback College “forum” on the Warren Report. Despite this, the Faculty Association "old guard" remained loyal to their "guy," who was, they said, misunderstood.

Those were the days. It's hard to convince people that it actually happened here.

Those days did occur and a few of us still at both colleges witnessed the ignorance, bigotry, and self-serving interests of a few.

Indeed. It was the willingness to embrace the bigotry that they didn't share in order to get higher pay and perks that was really shocking. Frogue, case in point.

Speaking of bigotry and greed, the classified are barely managing to scrap by while the cost of living goes thru the roof and administrators are sitting pretty. Classified employees with disabled children like Polly Sundeen are really hurting. Please make a donation so her son Cole can get around more easily. God bless you.
