›› LETTERS Lots to be disturbed about in this letter, actually... Disturbing news: I just realized that a true vegan can’t give oral sex. Yet another good reason to not hang around these people. Or, ever consider being one. Carlo V. Gardin, Fairfax

The great mouse invective The ashy storm petrel faces a doublewhammy from climate change—warmer waters mean less food for the colonial seabird and rising ocean levels endanger its nesting places.

As a frequent cheerleader for WildCare and its great programs, I was dismayed to see its executive director describe the rodent elimination proposal for the Farallon Island seabird colonies as a “horror show.” The remark feels uninformed and ecologically illiterate, and yet another example of the nastiness that usually characterizes the extreme right in our country. Mindless attack is spreading into much of our public dialogue. Marin has its own practitioners, few of them right wing, bedeviling almost every public meeting in the county. It’s sad to see WildCare joining the chorus. The ashy storm petrel, with a world population of only 10,000 birds, has an uncertain future in the face of global warming and pollution. Introduced house mice on the Farallones take a terrible toll on this vulnerable bird, year after year. The rodenticide proposed and its method of use have a thoroughly researched history of

success in sensitive environments worldwide, from the Galapagos to New Zealand, Canada, Hawaii, Great Britain and elsewhere. Bill Noble, San Anselmo

A street parade named desire Dear Members of the Mill Valley City Council: On behalf of the Marin Peace and Justice Coalition, the Marin Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and Mill Valley Seniors for Peace, I am writing once again to urge that you hold a public hearing to consider taking sponsorship of the city’s Memorial Day Parade. The reason is to protect the free speech rights of all members of our community, not just the private group that mounts the parade. We believe that the free speech rights of all members of the community to participate in a celebration of our city and a national holiday continue to be at risk and that you have the power and responsibility to defend these rights. Many people, including some of you, may believe that the matter has been resolved because the current sponsoring group, the I Love A Parade Committee of the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce, withdrew its ban of MPJC after last year’s parade and further decided last month that our banners need not submit to pre-censorship on this occasion, which the committee initially required. To believe that the issue has been satisfactorily resolved would be mistaken. MPJC was allowed to participate uncensored because of a 4-to-1 vote of the parade committee. There is no assurance that a vote of the committee in the future will not deny MPJC or any other group participation. The parade committee is a private group, not accountable to the people of Mill Valley or the City Council. As the holders of a parade

But the permit issued by the police department last February read, “It is the City of Mill Valley’s desire that this event will be open to all in the community who wish to participate.” However, the application form for contingents issued by the parade committee in April read “the committee reserves the right to refuse entrants/ floats it deems offensive, inappropriate, or contrary to the spirit of the parade or the town of Mill Valley.” This was a clear flouting of the explicit “desire” of the city, that is, the City Council. Our organizations are urging the City Council to enforce its “desire.” If the council is serious about what it says, it can do no less. Simply by taking sponsorship of the parade, that is, ownership on behalf of all its constituents, rather than privatizing it, the city is obliged by the First Amendment, court rulings and its own parade ordinance, to allow all groups irrespective of their messages, to exercise their right of free speech in the parade. The mayor and some members of the council have said in the past that if it were to sponsor the parade, it would require costly staff time. We have tried to explain many times to the council that this is not the case. By taking sponsorship of the parade, the council could contract with or otherwise delegate to the I Love A Parade Committee or any other group the organizing of the parade. But the city’s sponsorship would deny that group arbitrary decisions as to what contingents may participate and what banners they may carry. Having heard this explanation so many times from us, it is difficult for our organizations or for that matter the public at large to understand why members of the council continue to raise the staff-time objection. Are there other reasons why the council does not want to take sponsorship? If so, they should be presented, and a public hearing is the appropriate place to examine how the expressed desire of the council and its constituents to open the parade to all can be accomplished. Alan Barnett, Mill Valley

The revolution will not be subsidized You’d think after living in Marin for over 50 years that Joe Casalnuovo of Sleepy Hollow would know it’s less painful to shoot

himself in the head than to deal with the county on matters that concern his money and their never-ending greed to take it away from him to pay for the perks they’ve been giving themselves for being public employees. [Editor’s note: In attempting to split his 6-acre Sleepy Hollow lot into two parcels, Casalnuovo is being charged a fee of $46,000 by the county to subsidize low-income housing; Casalnuovo argues that the wording of the law waives the fee for him.] I can think of a dozen situations where the county has screwed over people for thousands of dollars in fees and never given them a permit to build or made them jump through hoops to do simple improvements to their homes until the homeowners were so angry, they just went ahead with the project and “begged forgiveness” when they got caught—instead of asking for permission from an inept/overpaid/greedy bunch of bureaucrats we’re stuck with here in Marin. I look forward to the revolution when we taxpayers figure out just what a mess we’re paying for. Marcia Blackman, San Rafael

Putting the ‘home’ in homeless Marin opens door to concept of housing as ‘basic human right’ by Pe t e r S e i d m a n

A

Housing First strategy can end chronic homelessness in Marin, say advocates for the most at-risk population in the county. The strategy is based on the premise that housing is a basic human right and must be the first step in a comprehensive support program. Without housing, nothing else is possible. The idea surfaced in the early 1990s, when the organization Pathways to Housing in New York City broached the idea that housing should never be denied to the homeless, no matter what their physical and mental condition. Sobriety was not a prerequisite; neither was disability. Pathways believed it was vital to provide housing for the most chronically homeless before addressing their health and addiction issues. The program is similar to supportive housing programs such as Shelter Plus Care, which provides housing, services and rental assistance for persons with disabilities. Shelter Plus Care operates in Marin, and many clients live and receive services throughout the county from the federally sponsored program. The Housing First approach has gained considerable momentum among support organizations, the federal government, nongovernmental organizations and support workers across the country. In March, Marin County awarded Ritter Center $200,000 to start a Housing First program. The money, from the county’s general fund, will be used to fund 12 housing units, which will include wrap-

around support services such as mental and physical health providers and a caseworker component. “So many people are on the precipice of homelessness,” says Diane Linn, executive director at Ritter Center. “And it doesn’t look like things are going to get much better for people that we call living precariously [housed]. We have got to analyze our resources.” Marin isn’t alone. “It’s a national strategic direction.” As government funding continues to decline, advocates say it’s crucial to focus on the most chronic of the homeless who often have contributing causes for their situation, including mental and physical disabilities. They are least likely to meet the qualifications for the programs in the county that require sobriety or mental-health stability. “It’s important to target the kind of resources we spend on the chronic homeless. We spend funds today for a bad result,” says Linn. Failing to provide services for this population to find housing results in a severe drain on resources. “Psychiatric cases in late-stage condition are extremely expensive and can take about $1,200 to $5,000 a night in a hospital,” says Linn. And many of the chronically homeless “spend a chunk of their year in jail,” which drains further resources from city and county budgets. “From arrest to release, just for two nights in jail, is $370 every single time for every person. Our argument is, let’s 10 > take a fraction of the resources we’re

‘Potentially dangerous’ dog returns to Novato A Labrador retriever that witnesses say tried to kill a Novato woman was returned to its Indian Valley Road home last week, after receiving a last-minute pardon by county officials. Dakota, a 7-year-old Lab, will remain in a sort of“doghouse arrest”after being spared euthanization under an agreement that owners Douglas and Marsha Halcrow negotiated with animalcontrol officials.The settlement decrees that Dakota cannot be walked within a mile-and-a-half of her home territory; that she cannot walk with another dog; that she must be leashed and muzzled during walks; and that the front of their property must have signage indicating a“potentially dangerous dog”lives there.The downgrading of Dakota from“vicious”to“potentially dangerous” spared her life. Dakota made headlines in December when she and another retriever, Godiva, got loose and sprang on Novato resident Amy Silva as she walked her little dog Sally. After attacking Sally, the dogs turned on Silva and, according to witnesses who came to her assistance, one of the retrievers pinned her down by her chest and went for her throat, while the other hound chewed on her leg. A passing water district worker came to the rescue and the canine culprits fled the scene; they were captured later by the Humane Society and taken into custody.The dogs were later deemed“vicious”by a county consumer protection officer, which normally would have led to them being euthanized.The Halcrows subsequently appealed the decision.While awaiting their fate, Godiva died on the operating table while undergoing a spaying procedure. Mill Valley Film Group wins Nor-Cal Emmy Local filmmakers-made-good John Antonelli,Tom Dusenbery and Will Parrinello were awarded a Northern California Emmy Award last weekend for their half-hour film, Global Focus VII:The New Environmentalists, the seventh installment of their series focusing on“ordinary people affecting extraordinary change.”The Robert Redford-narrated film, which aired on KQED this year, took home the prize for a“program or special focused on public, current or community affairs.” Antonelli, Dusenbery and Parrinello are part of a local filmmaking contingent called the Mill Valley Film Group.This latest chapter in their Global Focus series focused on an American farmer taking on factory-farm polluters; a Cuban agronomist promoting sustainable agriculture; an antishark-finning activist in Cost Rica; an elephant advocate in Cambodia; a wilderness steward in Poland; and an environmental attorney in Swaziland. The red carpet the Mill Valley Film Group walked down at the awards ceremony June 11 was more like a green carpet, as the 2011 Nor-Cal Emmy’s were dedicated to“The Next Frontier— Engineering the Golden Age of Green,”and projects focusing on renewable, clean energy technologies. Immigration activist sues Novato Jerome Ghigliotti, an activist fighting against taxpayer money going to pay for illegal immigrant employment, could be putting taxpayers on the hook for quite a sum himself—that is if his $3 million lawsuit against the city of Novato goes anywhere. The Novato resident’s suit, filed last week, is seeking damages from an incident that occurred Sept. 24 of last year at a Novato City Council meeting when Ghigliotti, a frequent and vocal presence at such meetings, allegedly turned his back on the council during the opening period when the public is free to address the council.When Ghigliotti ignored a request from then-mayor Jeanne MacLeamy to either face the council or return to his seat, police chief Joseph Kreins arrested him. He was later released and no charges were filed. In the suit, Ghigliotti suggests his arrest was preplanned and was carried out“with callous disregard and deliberate indifference”for his constitutional rights.The suit charges the City Council members and Kreins with defamation, assault, false arrest and emotional distress. Ghigliotti has been sparring with the council for more than two years over his as yet fruitless attempt to get Novato to adopt E-Verify—in which the city would use the federal Internet system to verify the legality of employees, and those with whom it contracts, through checks of Social Security information, among other things. He sees it as a means of reducing what he says is the burgeoning number of illegal immigrants in Marin’s northernmost city. At an immigration debate in San Rafael in April, Ghigliotti said his crusade against illegals was an attempt“to bring back the American way of life.” The City Council has refused to adopt it as an ordinance or to put the question to voters despite an apparently successful signature drive by Ghigliotti to do just that.The Novato lawyer took the E-Verify matter to court in May, where the Marin Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the city, agreeing that it could not be compelled to enact a law that was in violation of the Constitution. Ghigliotti reportedly has vowed to run for a seat on the Novato City Council in November. Animal rescue center sniffing out new territory WildCare is looking to burst out of its cage—as the San Rafael animal rehab and rescue center at 76 Albert Park Lane is trying to sew up a deal to purchase 29 acres of land out in Santa Venetia. In March,WildCare filed its pre-application—a sort of application for an application—with the county; the initial proposal was for as much as 27,000 square feet of floor space and 11 buildings, though WildCare executive director Karen Wilson stresses that size was merely a first-draft application and is far greater than the rehab center would need.

▼ Here’s some advice: When you’re having a bad day, don’t get behind the wheel of your car, cut off other drivers and then flash a gun around for everyone to see. Arash Geeve Shahabi, 31, of San Rafael allegedly cut off a car with two adults and four children and then showed them his gun. The road rage occurred Monday on 101 at Lincoln Avenue. The adage of “where’s a cop when you need one” didn’t come into play at all in this case. Witnesses called 911 and the San Rafael police were able to pull over and arrest Shahabi on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a loaded gun and exhibiting a firearm. Needless to say, Shahabi is our alleged Zero, though we have to give a nod to San Rafael’s finest for their quick response. —Nikki Silverstein

▲ They say it takes a village and that was certainly so at the Village at Corte Madera on Sunday. Bo, a Bernese Mountain dog, managed to wedge himself between the railings of a fence outside The Cheesecake Factory while waiting for his guardian to return. When his human came back and couldn’t free him, our Heroes rushed to the scene to rescue the big pooch. The Marin Humane Society, Corte Madera Fire Department, Twin Cities Police and mall security worked together to extricate Bo from his tight predicament. Finally, the Heroes cut through the rails with the Jaws of Life and released Bo from the clutches of the fence. Give that dog a bone and throw some accolades to our Heroes.

< 8 Newsgrams intended to use it for a middle school—but instead opted to expand its education facilities on the St.Vincent’s property near Marinwood.WildCare’s proposal for purchase is one of several Marin Montessori is reportedly considering. Still,Wilson hopes the center’s bid wins out. “We’re still negotiating on price,”says Wilson.“The ball’s in Montessori’s court.” At WildCare’s Feb. 4 gala at the Mill Valley Community Center, the animal-rescue center raised over $350,000, but officials expect they’ll need more than $13 million to relocate from their current 4,000-square-foot location to a larger expanse—wherever that may be. Still, the canalinfluenced landscape of Santa Venetia—and its proximity to the San Rafael Bay, would be a natural fit for a wildlife rescue center. Around the turn of the 20th century, Santa Venetia was intended as a development modeled after Venice, Italy. In 1914, real-estate developer Mabry McMahan proposed that the marshland area be partially filled with dredging from the San Rafael Bay and flanked with canals and gondolas (some of the area’s Italian street names like Vendola Drive and Galleria Way reflect this history) along with a glamorous, upscale resort planned for Santa Margarita Island. But it was an ambitious idea that was put aside once the effects of the Great Depression and a pair of world wars caused a need for more affordable and accessible housing. Much of the subsequent residential development occurred in the 1960s along North San Pedro Road, now the area’s main thoroughfare—but the neighborhood’s access to the bay, China Camp State Park and abundant wildlife remains. “We’ve seen deer and wild turkeys and hawks out here,”says Wilson,“and when the wildflowers were out it was spectacular.There’s enough land that our wild patients could recuperate in a large enclosure—it’s just right.” In the meantime,WildCare continues at 76 Albert Park, offering critter rehab and nature education—at 10am on June 18,WildCare is hosting a Deer Park Insect Safari, where nature educator Juan-Carlos Solis will lead a search for butterflies, dragonflies and grasshoppers.

Redistricting committee creates‘coastal’ 6th District Marin and Del Norte counties may be 375 miles apart in distance, but they’re now 6th District brethren, as the official“first draft”map of the state’s congressional redistricting soiree was released this week. As had been hinted at previously by the 14-member California Citizens Redistricting Committee charged with revising the district lines, the 6th District that formerly comprised Marin and most of Sonoma counties is now being considered as a“coastal-oriented”district that stretches from Sausalito up to the Oregon border. Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, our 6th District House rep, describes the new boundaries as “baffling.” “In manufacturing a new coastal district under this draft map, the Redistricting Commission has dismissed its mandate and violated its own guidelines,”Woolsey said in a statement.“The whole point is to keep communities of interest together. According to the Commission itself, districts are supposed to‘be drawn to encourage geographical compactness such that nearby areas of population are not bypassed for more distant populations.’” Redistricting takes place following each 10-year census, as required by federal law. Previously, district maps were drawn by legislators, but following the passage of Prop. 11 in November of 2008, the latest lines are being jiggered by a bipartisan citizens committee. Under the knife are state Assembly districts, state Senate districts, state Board of Equalization districts and congressional districts—which have drawn the closest scrutiny in Marin, as the 6th District House of Reps seat is likely to be up for grabs in 2012, if Congresswoman Woolsey decides not to seek another term, as expected.The committee’s guidelines were to draw together towns and counties with other“communities of interest”—defined in the California Constitution as areas that share common social and economic interests—such as urban, suburban, rural, industrial or agricultural—and, where possible, to maintain distinct geographical boundaries. Woolsey further described the move as a“solution in search of a problem.” “It’s baffling to me that, to round out our district, you would look to Del Norte County rather than our neighbors here in Sonoma County with whom we share so much,”she said, referring to Sonoma and Marin’s common water and transportation infrastructure, similar agricultural profile and integrated health and education systems.“The residents of Del Norte County are good people. But they deserve to be placed in a district with like communities, and so do we.” Woolsey said the North Coast may even need two members of Congress to advocate for its “ecologically important”interests.“The oil companies must be licking their chops,”she said. Early ideas flowing from the committee—to which no Marinites had been appointed— included splitting West Marin off into a long and narrow“coastal district,”pairing Marin with San Francisco and wrapping all of Marin into a northerly coastal district—which is the plan that seems to have won out. So far.This is a“first draft”and there’s time for input.The districts will not be finalized until Aug.15.

MacFarlane Partners, which bills itself as“specializing in investments that promote smart growth, urban revitalization and sustainability,”says it plans to develop a four-story 180-unit multi-family development at the 4.5 acre site near Lucky Drive on Tamal Vista Boulevard, with 5,000 square feet of ground-floor space dedicated to retail.Ten percent of the apartments will be set as“affordable”units, according to a press release from the real estate firm. MacFarlane president Greg Vilkin has high hopes for the project. “While the transit-oriented development is in the early design stage, it will incorporate the best elements of smart growth and new urbanism, which are hallmarks of our developments,” Vilkin said in a statement.“Future residents will enjoy stunning views of Mount Tamalpais and benefit from the vibrant Corte Madera location.” WinCup has leased the buildings at 195 to 205 Tamal Vista for 42 years. Earlier this year, WinCup headquarters in Stone Mountain, Georgia, announced plans to shut down its Corte Madera facility and relocate those operations to Bakersfield.

Pension system bleeding, says grand jury Marin needs to corral its out-of-control pension system before a bad financial situation turns dire, says a civil grand jury. In a report released this week investigating the finances of the Marin County Employees Retirement Association (MCERA), a Marin Civil Grand Jury says that a combination of bad investments with rising employer pension costs are resulting in“government layoffs and reductions in services.” The study, titled“Public Sector Pensions: A Perspective,”looks specifically at why the net assets of MCERA—which oversees the pension plans of the county of Marin, the city of San Rafael and the Novato Fire Protection District—dropped by a dramatic 25.5 percent since the financial fallout of 2008 and why employers’costs have risen so steeply at the same time. The city of San Rafael, the grand jury points out as an example, is now paying 50 percent of its payroll—nearly 20 percent of its general fund revenue—just to fund its annual pension obligations. “The increased cost to employers of pension plans, as a percentage of payroll, coupled with a concurrent loss of income, has caused the county of Marin and the city of San Rafael to take aggressive action to balance their budgets.” The grand jury adds that it’s“tempting”to blame the budget mess on overall high total employee compensation, but that’s not the real problem.“The acute problem,”the report says, “is unpredictable, rapid variation in compensation—caused at this time by increasing pension costs.”The report blames the volatile pension situation on MCERA’s upgrading of pension benefits—and retroactively crediting retirees for prior service—and for the agency’s risky investments in the market. “MCERA is an independent agency and not under the control of the county,”the grand jury points out regarding the pension program formed through the approval of the Marin Board of Supervisors in 1950. In its infancy, the employee retirement agency was only allowed to invest in stable assets—such as bonds. But over the years, California voters have approved propositions allowing increased investment risk-taking—a move that proved ill advised when the market crashed in 2008. In the last three years, the grand jury reports, MCERA’s trust for pension benefits has declined by $386,542,100. And when plans are underfunded, the report continues, employers must make up the difference“ultimately at the expense of taxpayers.” To stop the bleeding, the grand jury recommends that the county take on more oversight of MCERA, which it can do, according to the report, by expanding the pension provision in its Federal and State Legislative Programs and Policy Guidelines. Additionally, the grand jury says MCERA should reduce the risk in its investments and make its investment performance more transparent to the public.The county should also move legislatively to take away MCERA’s ability to award any payments to retirees that are in excess of their original plans. If action isn’t taken to reform the beleaguered system, the report concludes, the“public pension systems are not financially sustainable.” Heller’s for Children to close After 53 years in Marin, infant and toddler shop Heller’s for Children is closing its doors. Store owner Linda Levy says the decision to shutter the longstanding San Rafael family outlet at 514 Fourth Street was not easy, but the prospect of increased competition from larger retailers would only add to an already difficult economic climate. “We’re really sad about closing,”says Levy, who took over the store from her father, Herbert Heller, in 2006.“I kept thinking about what I could have done to save it but the fact is, there is too much competition from big-box stores and Internet sales.” The anticipated opening of the new Target store would add to the growing competition. “We were already experiencing a down trend from the current economy,”says Levy.“Target would just be one more knife.” Levy says she would be thrilled if the store could be sold and continue serving families in Marin. As for Mr. Heller, an Auschwitz concentration camp survivor who not only served Marin families through his role as the store’s original owner—he opened the business in 1958—but also frequently educated local high school students about his life during the Holocaust, he is disappointed to see the store close its doors. “He is sad,”says Levy.“But he understands.” Heller’s for Children will remain open and continue the going-out-of-business sale until inventory is gone.—Dani Burlison

the county and cities to provide services, the chronically homeless affect businesses, and not in a positive way. If one percent of business is lost in San Rafael, Novato and Corte Madera, the report states, the “total measurable impact” can reach $110 million annually. That total cost would include categories like depressed property values, reduced sales tax, difficulty attracting new businesses, maintenance costs, etc. That’s $1.1 billion over 10 years. From a strictly return-on-investment standpoint, spending money to place homeless persons in supportive housing seems a wise investment. The debate continues whether to commit resources to emergency shelters as opposed to permanent supportive housing. Grand juries have chastised the county for not having a permanent emergency shelter. Congregations have come together the past few years to offer a rotating emergency shelter program during the coldest months because the county lacked a facility. Linn and others, including county officials, laud that effort. They also say the limited financial resources available should go toward a permanent solution, especially for the chronically homeless. In addition to public money that supports homeless programs, organizations like Ritter Center benefit from an infusion of philanthropic support. For the second year, Ritter Center is presenting a project called “Art Houses of Marin.” It features local artists who have decorated model houses. The culmination of this year’s event takes place June 18 at the Mill Valley Community Center, where bidders will vie in live and silent auctions for the art-house sculptures as well as other items, including luxury vacations. Last year’s event raised $100,000 in profit. This year’s revenue will go toward supporting the Housing First program. The Marin Community Foundation is the lead sponsor for the event and has contributed $10,000. When the Housing First plan reached the public consciousness in Marin, the debate over where to put financial resources was fresh. “I respect the faith community and my colleagues over at St. Vincent for continuing to keep the [emergency shelter] issue in the forefront,” says Linn. “But the next dollars spent in this community ought to be for permanent solutions. It’s a waste of money to put people in an emergency shelter overnight and then flush them out in the morning. Nationwide, providing emergency shelter is the most ineffective way to use dollars in the whole system.” Responding to the criticism that Housing First in Marin will provide only 12 units as it starts, Linn says supporters always intended that 12 units are just the start. She says she hopes financial support will be available for another 12 units within about six months. The difficult part is finding affordable units in Marin that can be part of a “scattered housing” approach, avoiding the criticism of monolithic housing. With just a few hundred chronically homeless in the county, advocates say ending homelessness for them is a practical goal, especially considering the financial and societal resources available here. Or, as Linn says, “Let’s just do it.” ✹ Contact the writer at peter@pseidman.com

Indecent proposal Gay-relationship argument divorced from reality, says Prop. 8 judge by Ronnie Co he n

A

federal judge this week shot down a motion asserting that a landmark ruling should be voided because a gay judge failed to disclose his long-term relationship with another man before hearing the case against Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s same-sex marriage ban. The historic 19-page decision leaves intact Judge Vaughn Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling overturning the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gay-marriage ban known as Proposition 8. The initiativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proponents argued that Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post-retirement acknowledgment that he has been in a decade-long relationship with a physician constituted grounds for striking down his momentous decision. But Chief Judge James Ware of the U.S. District Court in San Francisco disagreed. Though Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling was cause for celebration for gay couples waiting at the altar, they still cannot exchange vows legally in California. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s August order for county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay men and lesbians remains on hold while proponents of the 2008 voter-approved ban continue to press their legal case on appeal. In a move that promises to further delay same-sex marriages, immediately following Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision gay-marriage opponents said they would appeal it. The American

Foundation for Equal Rights, or AFER, which brought the federal case challenging Proposition 8 on behalf of a lesbian and a gay couple, responded angrily to the decision to appeal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This motion was absurd before, and now, with Chief Judge Wareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just beyond desperate,â&#x20AC;? an AFER spokeswoman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blatant homophobia and extreme bigotry.â&#x20AC;? During a hearing on the motion to set aside Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, Ware said it was the ďŹ rst time a federal judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual orientation and eligibility for marriage had led to calls for disqualiďŹ cation. Ware repeatedly asked Charles Cooper, the attorney defending Proposition 8, for evidence that Walker wanted to marry his long-term partner and therefore stood to gain from his own ruling. Cooper had no evidence that Walker desired to be wed. Ware, an African-American who served alongside Walker on the U.S. District Court bench for more than 20 years, likened the question of whether a gay jurist should have heard the Proposition 8 case to whether minority judges should hear civil rights cases. If Walker needed to recuse himself from the gay-marriage case because of his long-term same-sex relationship, Ware wrote, minority

judges would need to recuse themselves in most, if not all, civil rights cases. Moreover, the judge wrote, all Californians, not just gay men and lesbians, have a stake in the outcome of the court case challenging Proposition 8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although this case was ďŹ led by same-sex couples seeking to end a California constitutional restriction on their right to marry, all Californians have an equal interest in the outcome of the case,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The single characteristic that Judge Walker shares with the plaintiffs... gave him no greater interest in a proper decision on the merits than would exist for any other judge or citizen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To hold otherwise, and require recusal merely based on the fact that the presiding judge is engaged in a long-term same-sex relationship, is to place an inordinate burden on minority judges.â&#x20AC;? Theodore J. Boutrous Jr., the lawyer for the gay and lesbian couples who brought the federal case, applauded the decision for making â&#x20AC;&#x153;clear that gay and lesbian judges are entitled to the same presumptions of fairness and impartiality as all other federal judges,â&#x20AC;? and for rejecting â&#x20AC;&#x153;the false and unreasonable assumptions and stereotypes that the Proposition 8 proponents asserted in this deeply offensive motion.â&#x20AC;? Boutrous accused Protect Marriage, a conservative religious coalition that sponsored Proposition 8, of throwing a Hail Mary pass after losing the case at trial and realizing it might not have standing to bring an appeal. Ordinarily, the governor and attorney general defend voter initiatives. But they have refused to defend Proposition 8, which passed with 52 percent of the vote. In September, the state Supreme Court will hear a motion about whether Protect Marriage can appeal Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. Walker did not attend Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing. The media began writing about his sexual orientation while he was presiding over the federal trial against Proposition 8. In his August ruling, Walker found that the gay-marriage ban violated the U.S. Constitutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guarantees of due process and equal protection. The 67-year-old judge retired in February, and in April, he revealed that he has been in a relationship with another man for the past 10 years. The city of San Francisco joined with AFER in challenging Proposition 8. Therese Stewart, chief deputy city attorney for San Francisco, pointed out that despite widespread knowledge about Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with another man, little is known about whether they even live together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know if they are married in the half-dozen states that allow it or in California before the passage of Proposition 8 or in the dozen or so countries that allow same-sex couples to marry,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart, who lives in Novato with the woman she married in 2008.

If Walker married during the ďŹ ve-month legal window, between June and November 2008, after the state Supreme Court ruled same-sex couples could marry and before Proposition 8 passed, he did not send out wedding announcements. It is conceivable that Judge Ware does know some of the details in question about Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship. If so, he said nothing about his knowledge. At the beginning of Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing, Ware did announce his own connection to the subject, leaving little doubt about where he stands on same-sex marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since this is about recusal and interest, there was an occasion when, as a judge, I presided over such a marriage. I want to make that disclosure. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regard that as inhibiting me from hearing this motion.â&#x20AC;? Stewart argued that a judge who hears a case about contraception need not reveal his or her own family-planning methods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These kinds of inquiries into peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intimate lives are not required,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no disclaimer requirement.â&#x20AC;? Judge Ware not only agreed that judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; intimate lives need not be examined, he cautioned that such examinations could be problematic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact,â&#x20AC;? Ware wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Court observes that Judge Walker, like all judges, had a duty to preserve the integrity of the judiciary. Among other things, this means that if, in an overabundance of caution, he were to have disclosed intimate, but irrelevant, details about his personal life that were not reasonably related to the question of disqualiďŹ cation, he could have set a pernicious precedent. Such a precedent would be detrimental to the integrity of the judiciary, because it would promote, incorrectly, disclosure by judges of highly personal information [e.g., information about a judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history of being sexually abused as a child], however irrelevant or timeconsuming.â&#x20AC;? During oral arguments on the motion Monday, however, Proposition 8 attorney Cooper offered a different opinion. Would a female judge hearing a sexual assault case need to disclose that she had been raped, Ware asked Cooper. He said he believes she would. Ware seemed incredulous about much of Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument. In a prepared statement after Ware issued his ruling, Cooper said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our legal team will appeal that decision and continue our tireless efforts to defend the will of the people of California to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman.â&#x20AC;? Since Proposition 8 was on the ballot in 2008, support for same-sex marriage has surged. In just the past year, a recent Gallup poll measured a 9 percent increaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to 53 percentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in Americans who believe gay men and lesbians should have the legal right to marry. â&#x153;š Contact Ronnie Cohen at ronniecohen@comcast.net.

The rogue warrior

Ken Morris—the man who’s keeping Sarah Palin from running for President?

Meet the Marin blogger and his book that launched a thousand emails...

by Jill Kramer

T

aking on a tell-all book about Sarah Palin, Ross writer Ken Morris knew from the outset that he’d be recording tales of sabotage and betrayal. He never dreamed that such shady dealings would come close to scuttling any possible publishing deal. The near-lethal attack came not from the Palin camp, but from another author with his own Palin expose in the works. The book survived. Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin, which Morris co-authored with Jeanne Devon and former Palin right-hand man Frank Bailey, has hit the New York Times bestseller list. Morris and Devon, both political progressives, teamed with staunch conservative Bailey to write the story of his soul-shaking disillusionment with the woman he once thought was the savior of the Republican Party, the state of Alaska and the nation. Bailey served at Palin’s side from the start of her campaign for governor until the summer of 2009, when he finally became convinced she was a fraud. Morris wrote the story as Bailey told it to him, supported by 60,000 email communica14 PACIFIC SUN JUNE 17 - JUNE 23, 2011

tions between him, Palin and others. Morris and Bailey brought blogger Devon into the project for her expertise in the local Alaska political scene. Never meeting in person, the three of them completed the entire project via computer, with Bailey and Devon in Anchorage and Morris in Marin. Morris, 58, began his writing career after a disillusionment of his own. In 1994, he walked away from a highly lucrative career on Wall Street to become a vocal critic of the New York Stock Exchange, which he now calls “a criminal enterprise to match the Mafia.” Since then, he’s been blogging about money and politics for RealMoney. com, the Huffington Post and truthout.org. He also wrote two financial thrillers and has recently finished a third novel. He spoke with me one June morning at his palatial home on a hillside in central Marin. We sat at the window of his spacious kitchen, sunshine streaming through a skylight, at one end of a long wooden table. At the other end, his two teenage sons had left their computers on the table and their socks on the floor.

Frank Bailey says he continues to be a staunch conservative despite his disenchantment with Sarah Palin. What happened when he recently went on Sean Hannity’s show? Did they butt heads? Yeah, they did, and Sean Hannity bullied him to no end. Sean Hannity still is in love with Sarah Palin. And he didn’t read the book. He was the only person who interviewed Frank who hadn’t read a single word of the book. At one point in the interview Frank says, “What we do in the book is we vet the woman, something that should have been done beforehand.” And he asks Hannity, “Sean, don’t you want to vet your politicians?” And Hannity goes, “No, I don’t care about that.” That’s an amazing admission. Then what happened after the live segment ran out of time, Hannity kept him there and did a taped interview. And during the taped interview, Frank kept asking him, “Why don’t you ask her the hard questions?” And Hannity, finally, in this pique of frustra-

tion, goes, “Well, what one question would you have me ask her?” And Frank says, “I would ask her why she illegally coordinated with the Republican Governors Association in the making of a commercial and then lied about it.” And Hannity goes [stuttering] “Well, I... I... I don’t know what you’re talking about.” He edited that out of the interview the next day and didn’t tell his audience it was an edited interview. He put it up on his web page and edited out anything that didn’t fit with the scenario he wanted his audience to see. And Frank used to just worship the ground that Sean Hannity walked on. The poor guy. He must feel so betrayed. His whole world has changed. He was on the Lawrence O’Donnell show and Michael Moore went on before him. And as Frank was leaving after his interview, Michael Moore was out in the hall and he came up to him and starting telling him the strategy he would use to market this book, wishing him luck, and he said, “Follow your heart, do it!

Don’t let ’em knock you down. Your book is important.” And Frank went away going, “Gosh, what a great guy!” Because he had hated Michael Moore until that moment. Hated him! And loved Sean Hannity. And he’s still very conservative, he still worships Ronald Reagan, but his perceptions have sort of flip-flopped. And he told me, “I guess what I regarded as news in the past wasn’t exactly news.” And of course I’m a progressive. And Jeanne Devon, the other co-writer on this book, an expert on Alaska politics, she and Frank always hated each other before this project. And Frank didn’t know this, but Jeanne had introduced me to him through a third party they both knew. So you initiated the contact with Frank. I had emailed Jeanne saying, I hear this guy’s book deal fell through. Any way you can get me in touch with him? How did you know that there was a book deal? What happened was that Frank Bailey signed a deal to do a book more than two years ago with a PR firm in San Diego. He had gone to college with one of the two women. The book was going to be called Sarah Palin’s Hatchet Man. The women from the PR firm were going to write it and sell it to a publisher. So they announced the deal and it went huge virally: Frank Bailey, the first insider to come out! But then they pulled out of the deal. Why? I still to this day don’t know. Anyway, I had written some things for Jeanne’s blog before, some of them on Palin. And I asked Jeanne if she could put me in touch with him and she said if he finds out it’s me, he’ll never talk to you. So she went through someone else and I talked to both him and his wife and we came to a really solid understanding. He said, this is a story of redemption for me, I want people to learn from this, my faith is everything to me now, I lost my way and that’s the story I want to tell. And that’s a great story. Did you present yourself as a political progressive? Oh, absolutely. I made no bones about it. I told him, this is your book, you can pull out of the deal at any time. Then, about a month in, I told Frank I need help with the research and I need someone who knows Alaska politics backwards and forwards. And I said, I want to bring Jeanne Devon in. And at first Frank and his wife said no way, but he reluctantly went to her and by the second cup of coffee he and Jeanne became fast friends. They talked about what was important to them, and even though they came from different political backgrounds, they realized that what was in their hearts was very similar—what was best for the country, what was best for the state of Alaska, how much they care for their families.

So the three of you started working together. Jeanne and I spent six months going through the 60,000 emails, that was Step One. And for that entire time, no one ever knew we were doing a book. We didn’t look for an agent. It took us one day to find five publishers who were interested in this book. And then in February our manuscript was leaked out by a competing author, Joe McGinniss [whose unauthorized biography of Palin is due out later this year], and every one of those publishers dropped out. Because the publicity was out. And we’ve had a hard time getting as much publicity as we would have had if all this was new material. But every news show in the country took our illegally leaked manuscript and ran full news stories on it. I estimate over 100,000 full manuscripts were downloaded worldwide. It was devastating. How vicious! How did Joe McGinniss get his hands on the manuscript? His publisher sent it to him. And his publisher got it from your agent, because she was shopping it around? Correct. And of course he sent it out to news media, and after that it’s like a cold spreading. He’d send it to a blogger in Alaska who would then send it to 50 others who would send it to 50 others and so on. I was told that the day after it was leaked it was the second most-Googled story in the world. And that would have translated into sales of the book, if it had been published then. This would have been a New York Times bestseller like that [snaps fingers]! if it hadn’t been for the leak. But Howard Books, the religious imprint for Simon & Schuster, they picked it up! What saved this is the fact that we kept the story of Frank Bailey’s spiritual journey intact. But I had to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on cease and desist orders against illegally using material from copyrighted work. Are you considering suing McGinniss as well as the publisher who sent it to him? Yeah. And what about the news outlets? No, they did something that was unethical and they shouldn’t have, but all you can do is get back damages. So if I decide to go after McGinniss, which I might, it’s going to be

a case of what could we have earned versus what did we earn, how much damage did he do to the product? And his attorney at the time sent out a letter admitting that he had sent the book to “a few Alaskan sources” but that the book was unpublishable anyway because the Alaska attorney general was looking at the use of emails. So they were making the case that there’s no monetary damage. Now that the book is published, it’s a question of how much monetary damage did they do. So the Alaska AG is questioning if you were within your legal rights to use these emails? It has to do with Frank Bailey as an ex-employee: Can he profit from information he got when he was in a government office? But the law was written to keep government employees from, for example, finding out about the state constructing a highway next to certain key parcels of land and buying the land ahead of time. It’s not meant to keep public employees from writing memoirs, or Sarah Palin couldn’t have written a memoir either. Also, Frank sat down with the attorney general’s office and went through every page of this book. And there are a few places in the book where we say the email that addresses this issue was removed at the request of the Alaska attorney general. So we did all that, with an abundance of caution, to put it to rest. But in the world of Palin, they attack everything. They’ve attacked everything except for one word between the covers. And that’s the strength of using those emails. Because, as Sarah would say, you cannot “refudiate” her own words. [Laughing] Right. And right before the book came out, she was doing an interview with Greta Van Susteren and she talked about our book coming out as one of the reasons she was delaying her announcement, because she had a “disgruntled, disloyal employee who had hoarded emails and given them to an evil Alaska blogger who was going to release them out of context.” That’s why she was delaying what announcement? Her candidacy for president. My God. Whether she will or not, I don’t know. I heard today that the state of Alaska is printing up 20,000 pages of emails that they’re finally going to release to the public, probably next week. Palin emails, some of which are similar to the ones we have in this book. [The emails, released June 10, end in September

2008. The book includes another year’s worth of messages.] And she announced today that she may curtail her bus tour across the East Coast now, she says because of gas prices. But I suspect it’s because of the emails. And why are they releasing them? Because they had been requested under the Freedom of Information Act like two years ago by a number of news outlets. So I think that, on top of what is coming out here, has given her second thoughts. I think, as of two days ago, she was going to announce. The Republican Party is now the Whack-aMole Party. So when Huckabee went out of the race, you whack him down and Donald Trump pops up. You whack Trump down and Sarah Palin pops up. She saw that God was opening the door for her. And if this book and those emails whack her down, Michele Bachmann will pop up. Isn’t Sarah Palin considered a joke already? Here’s what is frightening about the political world we’re in right now, and why this book is so important. With the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court there will be unlimited corporate funds that can now be funneled into election campaigns. So there’s this movie about Sarah Palin that’s coming up, The Undefeated. It’s based on her dark comedy [her autobiography], Going Rogue, and it’s going to be issued in 30 primary states. It’s going to energize her base, which is currently about 30 percent or so of Republicans. And they’re very hard-core. They’ll never leave her. And even though she hasn’t announced, she’s at the very top of the popularity lists, just a tiny bit behind Mitt [Romney]. And with unlimited financing, we’re going to see a world of swiftboating right up until Election Day. You literally can buy an hour of prime network TV time and put on a documentary full of falsehoods, just like Swift Boat [the 2004 smear campaign against John Kerry, organized by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth]. And will that sway opinion? You bet it will. The Swift Boat thing, which was completely bogus, cost the election for the Democratic Party. Now imagine that, times 10, times 100, times 1,000, right up until Election Day. So at this rate, we’ll probably one day see a president with a 30 percent approval rating. Why? Because if you make the opposition’s approval rating 28 percent, you’ve got a president. You energize your base, the other party’s base is disenfranchised, they don’t go out to vote, you have a president with 30 percent approval rating. So we’ve got this Whack-a-Mole Party and if Sarah Palin is the last one standing, she can win. This is the first election where we have no campaign finance law at all. It’s now open season. And corporations have billions of dollars to buy what they want politically. How is Frank Bailey handling being in the spotlight now? You say in the book that he always shied away from public speaking. 16 > I thought he was going to be a JUNE 17 - JUNE 23, 2011 PACIFIC SUN 15

disaster, but he’s been so good. He’s such a polite guy and he is sincere. You know, before the book was published, he started calling up some of the people that they hurt, like Chip Thoma [who lived near the governor’s mansion in Democratic-leaning Juneau, which Sarah Palin usually avoided]. Sarah Palin hated her neighbor because it was embarrassing when he pointed out she wasn’t living in Juneau. She had to pay back [taxes on] the per diem she’d been charging the state of Alaska for living in Wasilla instead of the Juneau governor’s mansion. [Palin collected $17,000 from the state for “lodging” while living in her own home.] And while I was researching this I went to some of the conservative blogs to see what they were writing about at the time, and they were saying this neighbor was a drug addict, an alcoholic, child molester. It’s beyond vile. Thoma, by the way, has filed a $100,000 lawsuit against Sarah Palin for defamation. So Frank called him up to say, “I am so sorry!” It was important for Frank to go back and reach out to these people.

So, as long as you’re not on her “enemies list,” she really is a warm human being? The thing is, she is not a happy person. All three of us came away feeling so sorry for her and her family. Because the further she went in terms of her “success,” the more miserable she became, the more the “forces of evil” were gathering around her in her mind. So when she comes back from the [campaign for the] vice presidency—and this is what shocked me—there was zero time spent on government. Aside from all the big faux pas, we had these little battles: the run-ins with the Juneau neighbor, David Letterman, Newt Gingrich. Not being able to address the Wasilla High School graduating class became a three-day vendetta. There was the Dan Fagan radio show stuff, where they wasted three hours every day listening to him and transcribing his show so Sarah could go over it piece by piece and respond to the criticisms. It just went on and on. You don’t realize how pathological it is until you get into it.

San Rafael Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new dinner theater is simply to die for... by Pat Fu sco

A MEAL AND MAYHEM With its â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s vibes, San Rafael Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Fourth Street is the perfect setting for a Murder Mystery Dinnerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and that is just what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ nd every Saturday night through Aug. 27, 6:30-9:30pm. Along with a ďŹ ve-course Italian dinner, you get more than spumoni: Lee Muellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Murder Me Always, directed by Adrienne Goff, is the noir drama played out in the best Chandler tradition. The a la carte menu (with vegetarian option) is $68 per person, $44 for children, including tax and tip. A no-host bar is available. For information, call 415/306-1202; for reservations, 415/456-2425. HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS With its ofďŹ cial observation falling on a Monday, the Fourth of July holiday provides a long weekend to ďŹ nd food-related fun from Marin to Sonoma. The Marin County Fair (June 30-July 4) has become famous for reďŹ ning its snack foods and beverages to prove that festival noshing does not have to be dangerous to be delicious. Vendors must include healthful options on their menus and items are prepared with trans-fat-free oils. There are more than 35 food booths with an emphasis on international cuisines; new this year is Terra Linda Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu of Central American dishes (gallo pinto, tostones, fruits and salads). Most of the fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition entries have closed, but home cooks can still show off their talents in daily culinary contests. Check out all the exciting categories at www.marinfair.org... There will be plenty of holiday events up in Sonoma County. One of particular interest is All American Zin Day in Dry Creek Valley (July 2, 11am4pm), when six wineries will pour their top zinfandels, with summery complementary food treats at each stop. These will range from pizza made in Amista Vineyardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new wood-ďŹ red oven to grilled skirt steak at Mazzocco-Sonoma and barbecued sausages at Wilson Winery. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door ($15 for

designated driver); call 888/433-6555, ext. 1... The Fourth of July parade in Sonoma is a real classic: cowboys, horses, kids on bikes, marching bands. The show begins at 10am when the parade circles the Plaza. Afterward itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small-town day on the grass with picnics, ice cream, food, wine and live music, ending at 5pm. (True aďŹ cionados stay for ďŹ reworks at dusk at Vallejoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Field.) ...AND THE LIVINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; IS EASY Marin Osher Jewish Community Center, San Rafael, celebrates the season with Festival of Summer Nights, a series given over to music and food alfresco. The ďŹ rst of these brings â&#x20AC;&#x153;next generation folk and bluegrassâ&#x20AC;? with sounds from Hot Buttered Rum and Jugtown Pirates, July 9 (7-10pm). Carry a picnic or buy food on the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this time around, specialties from Roadside BBQ. Stretch out on the lawn or party at a reserved picnic table (for a fee). Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 on the day of the event, $6 for those under 17. Detailsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including free entry for local teachers on this dateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a schedule for the series: www.marinjcc.org. ITALIAN IMMERSION Eat, drink and speak Italian at Mill Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atmospheric Caffe Oggi this summer. Owner Amelia Di Nardo is the instructor of a new Italian conversation class and her husband/co-owner Antonio Caruso feeds students while they practice skills in a social setting. The class, for those who understand and speak a bit of the language, will use magazines and books in Italian in addition to a required textbook. Six Tuesdays, beginning July 12 (6-8pm); includes wine, antipasto and homemade breads. $240 for six classes, $40 per class on a drop-in basis. Contact: italiancourses@ yahoo.com or call 415/342-7685. DOWN ON THE FARM Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not every day that outsiders have a chance to visit one of Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most magical spots, Peter Martinelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fresh Run Farms on Pine Creek watershed in Bolinas. With organic orchards and gardens, protected wildlife (foxes, egrets, salmon), farm animalsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including alpacasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and a rich foraging environment, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a treasure. On July 9 (10am-2pm), Marin Agricultural Land Trust sponsors a hike that will follow the creek up to a spectacular PaciďŹ c view. Cost is $40 per person ($30 for members).

â&#x20AC;şâ&#x20AC;ş SiNGLE iN THE SUBURBS

Sweatinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to the oldies This perimenopausal business is really putting a damper on romance! by N ik k i Silve r ste in

I

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fabulous at 40ish.When my on-again, off-again beau and I lie in bed together, his expression is one of wide-eyed wonder. (Not so easy for a Japanese man.) Imagine my sexy nightie dripping wet and my entire body drenched in sweat. Our sheets are soaked through and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m spent, zapped of energy, almost delirious. Yep, for a middleaged woman, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got it going on. Except the dazed look on Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face is not one of lust, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alarm. I, my friends, now experience night sweats. Unfortunately, on a regular basis. According to Rick, the most attractive part is the moaning he claims spews from my mouth right before I awaken bathed in that sea of sweat. He likens the sound to a death rattle. Of course, it is a passing, of sorts. My reproductive capabilities are slowly, but noisily expiring, refusing to go gentle into that good night. I invited my perimenopausal girlfriends over to sit shivah with me last weekend. (Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that the Jewish bereavement custom actually lasts seven days, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re busy gals.) Not only did it help us deal with the grief over losing our fertility, but we Jews came up with some great rules for mourning. During shivah, no sexual intercourse. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, when your ovaries are shriveling and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly sweating like a sinner in synagogue, it puts a damper on romance anyway. Absolutely no ironing allowed either. My extensive stage of denial about aging has concluded. I accept that my lifelong dream of marrying a tall, exotic-looking man with a substantial schlong and bearing his beautiful, brilliant child who turns out to be a music prodigy just ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gonna happen. Even my prospects of marrying a short, balding Jewish man and adopting a child from a Third World country are dwindling quickly. I conduct a ruthless self-examination. I stand naked under harsh lighting in front of a full-length mirror. No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not in Macyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dressing room. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at home in my crowded bathroom. Usually, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spacious, but I dragged in all the lamps I own and removed the shades. Every nook and cranny of my body is well lit. OK, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to tell you the truth about what I see. I thoroughly researched perimenopause and many of my symptoms are attributable to the condition, so please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that my growing up in Florida and tanning with olive oil caused my wrinkles. My thinning hair is due to hormonal changes and has nothing to do with years of highlighting, bleaching and perming. From the number of tresses I ďŹ nd in the drain catcher every morning, I predict Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be bald before my ďŹ rst gray hair appears. My cellulite is not from lack of exercise. Ditto for the ďŹ&#x201A;ab that jiggles on the underside

of my upper arm. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be caught dead in a sleeveless top anymore. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the reason for my fat knees. They simply appeared one day and now I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear shorts. I should give away all my clothes and don mumus. Why did that garb go out of style anyway? The girls are sagging a bit, but I hoist them up with a good underwire bra. Sometimes when I stand, my left hip crumples and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a step for a second or two. A few times a month, my lower back aches. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m scared Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be one of those old people squawking about my sciatica. I wish I could blame all my afďŹ&#x201A;ictions on perimenopause, but I need an expert opinion. To the gynecologist I go. The doctor suggests I speak with my mother to ďŹ nd out about her years leading up to menopause. Apparently, mothers and daughters often experience this joy in a similar manner. I phone her on Saturday morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mom, when did you go through menopause?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, dear,â&#x20AC;? she answers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do you ask?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a freak of nature, you have. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re almost 80.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a hysterectomy. No menopause. And, you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call me a freak,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call you a freak.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, you did,â&#x20AC;? she responds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You said if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone through menopause, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a freak. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, so essentially, you called me a freak. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not nice.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean it that way,â&#x20AC;? I say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to play mahjongg now. By the way, dear, your father and I still have sex, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking about. Bye-bye.â&#x20AC;? She did that on purpose. I do not want that image in my headâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ever, never. I do some visualization exercises, take a deep breath and think about calling a ďŹ tness boot camp for women. Instead, I go shopping for long billowy dresses and explain to the saleswoman about going bald and going through perimenopause. She tells me she has night sweats. Night sweats. What a terrible term. Makes it sound as though I contracted malaria and suffer from a sky-high fever or clad myself in unattractive sleep attire consisting of thick sweat pants and matching shirt. We need a good euphemism or two. How about â&#x20AC;&#x153;evening of perspirationâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;sundown shvitzâ&#x20AC;?? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m open to suggestions; however, my estrogen level just dipped and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m having a hot ďŹ&#x201A;ash. We need a new name for that too, but it will have to wait. At the moment, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m incapable of thinking about anything but ice cubes and air conditioning. â&#x153;š Email: nikki_silverstein@yahoo.com

The porpoise-driven life ‘Cove’ hero Ric O’Barry is trying to put a cork in the bottlenose industry by Davi d Te mp l e ton

O’Barry’s message is simple: ‘Please don’t buy a ticket for a dolphin show.’

The Academy Award winning doc screens June 21 at the Rafael Film Center—Ric O’Barry and Louie Psihoyos will answer question; the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir is set to perform.

I

t’s 7am in Japan, and dolphin-welfare activist Ric O’Barry has risen early to talk about the film The Cove. Directed by Louie Psihoyos, the 2009 Academy Award-winning documentary—which featured O’Barry prominently—sparked worldwide outrage with its devastating footage, captured using CIA-worthy stealth methods, of the secret dolphinslaughter industry in Japan. Since then, working through the Earth Island Institute (www.earthisland.org) and his own Dolphin Project (www.dolphinproject. org), O’Barry has been riding the wave of heightened awareness brought about by The Cove, using it to spread his message that dolphins are still being harmed and exploited in countless ways. On Tuesday, June 21, at 7pm, O’Barry and director Psihoyos will appear in San Rafael for a special encore screening of The Cove, at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center. A benefit for Earth Island Institute, the event will also feature a musical performance by the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir. The film is available free on the Internet, but for many, the San Rafael event will be the first opportunity to see the visually stunning, surprisingly exciting documentary on the big screen. “It’s the most powerful tool we have,” admits O’Barry. “Not just for what it says about the particular issues documented in The Cove, but it’s also been a powerful tool in my work on the dolphin-captivity issue.”

That’s the work O’Barry has been devoted to since the late 1960s, when he abandoned his career as a dolphin trainer and began telling people the truth about what he calls “the dolphin-capture industry.” As shown in The Cove, O’Barry was the original trainer of the five dolphins used in the hit television show Flipper.

After capturing the dolphins in the wild, and teaching them to perform the various Flipper tricks, O’Barry saw evidence that capturing and training dolphins leads to extreme depression in the animals. In the film, he describes watching the suicide of one of the Flipper dolphins, which ended up dying in his arms.

The brutal, unforgettable massacre scene from ‘The Cove.’

O’Barry’s work on ‘Flipper’ didn’t do the dolphins any favors, though it sure helped Bud and Sandy out of a few scrapes.

“The film has helped create a legion of activists around the world,” O’Barry points out, “so yes, it’s been extremely helpful. This movie does change people’s minds. I’ve seen it. I don’t know how many film festivals I’ve gone to around the world, and beginning with the very first screening, at the Sundance Film Festival—that was the first time I saw it myself—people literally jumped up out of their seats and said, ‘What can I do to help?’ And this film continues to have that kind of response. So yes, a movie can change the world, by changing people’s minds about important issues.”

It’s taken a while, but the film has finally become available in Japan, where O’Barry continues to go, putting pressure on the powers-that-be to stop the kinds of dolphin herding and organized killing—their meat is sold throughout Japan—chronicled in the movie. “Japan is the size of California,” O’Barry says, “and it has 127 million people. Most of them have not seen it. But I’ve done dozens of interviews in Japan, trying to get people to watch it on the Internet. It’s going to take a long time though, for 127 million people to see it, but I think, like Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring, this movie is going to be around forever.” O’Barry has made sure, in the countless interviews and talks he’s given, to tell people about his efforts against the dolphin-captivity industry, an industry that includes marine parks with dolphin shows and films that use live dolphins in abusive ways. “It’s all based on supply and demand,” he says. “People will continue to capture dolphins and turn them into circus clowns as long as people are lining up to watch. If I’m wearing ivory, then I’m part of the reason the elephant is being hunted to extinction. So my message is simple— please don’t buy a ticket for a dolphin show. That’s the solution to the problem. It’s that simple. Every time I appear on a TV show or give an interview, that’s what I tell people, and apparently, these dolphin amusement parks are starting to feel that…Sea World recently laid off 350 people. People are getting the message, just like with the elephant issue, that if you are willingly buying tickets to dolphin shows, then dolphins are dying to amuse you.” ✹ Ride the wave with David at talkpix@earthlink.net.

O

n Sept. 27, 1988, Congress passed the National Film Preservation Act, a measure to preserve “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant films” on an ongoing basis. Each year a board of film professionals, historians, critics and academics helps select 25 movies (none less than 10 years old) worthy of placement on the Library of Congress National Film Registry, thereby guaranteeing their protection against tampering, colorization or general disintegration. Today the registry contains 550 films ranging from popular classics, documentaries and cartoons to experimental works, home movies, newsreels and concert footage. A thoroughly entertaining new documentary, These Amazing Shadows, looks at the NFR’s wide-ranging preservation work and celebrates the registry’s wonderfully eclectic canon of honorees with insights from Rob Ron Howard, Cindy Williams and the Tam High gym in Reiner, John Waters, the Chronicle’s Mick ‘American Graffiti.’ LaSalle and other cinephiles.

Several key scenes in the 1947 film noir classic The Lady From Shanghai take place on the Sausalito waterfront, including this one where wealthy couple Arthur and Elsa Bannister (Everett Sloane and Rita Hayworth) dock their yacht after voyaging from New York via the Panama Canal. It is here where shipmate Michael O’Hara (Orson Welles) is duped into becoming a fall guy for Elsa (Rita Hayworth), under whose seductive spell he’s fallen. This shot of Welles and Hayworth is a great example of the kind of deep-focus photography Welles pioneered (with cinematographer Gregg Toland) six years earlier in Citizen Kane. The deep focus technique keeps the lens focused on the foreground, middle and background all at once—hence the clarity here of Welles, the dock and the San Francisco skyline. —Jason Walsh

ViDEO Isn’t it ‘Petulia’? PETULIA is the perfect picturepostcard of San Francisco in 1967. People were never lovelier; their lives never more challenged by the counterculture upheaval; the color palette never more Peter Max.

He’s newly divorced but can’t say why; she’s newly married but wants an affair. What sounds like suds is made more of a kinetic elegy for these failed free spirits, deaf to that magic moment in time when Big Brother played the Fairmont with Janis Joplin at the mike and the Dead filled a local psychedelic club. Cinematographer Nicolas Roeg’s eye captures that moment, fills each frame with the Eden-seeking lifestyle that seems 100 years ago. Could be the most ’60s movie ever made. —Richard Gould

Tropicalia thunder

Gilberto Gil was held for nine months without charges in 1969 by a Brazilian government that felt threatened by his role in ‘tropicalia,’ in which the musician wrote songs critical of the coup of 1964.

‘Red Hot + Rio 2’ and the legacy of a Brazilian music revolution by G r e g Cahill

I

n the summer of ’69, the Beatles sang about revolution, but did little to quash the status quo that showered the band with fame and fortune. That same year, the Rolling Stones, children of luxury feigning street radicals with the hit single “Street Fighting Man,” pranced across the world stage on their way to an ugly beat-down at the Altamont Speedway in Northern California. Meanwhile, Brazilian pop stars Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil—youthful architects of the tropicalia movement, a vital cultural force comprised of poets, musicians and artists opposed to that South American nation’s newly minted military dictatorship—were arrested by jack-booted police in a midnight raid. No charges were filed. Separated and confined in a cramped solitary cell with nothing but a dirty blanket and filthy toilet, each endured brutality, confinement and an uncertain future. Two months later, Veloso and Gil were put on an airplane and exiled to London. “It seemed the real reason for their imprisonment was a mixture of protest

songs, long hair and strange clothes,” writer Will Hodgkinson noted in a 2002 Mojo music magazine article on the lost history of such tropicalists as Velosa, Gil, Os Mutantes and Tom Ze. In the ensuing months, tropicalia provided the vibrant soundtrack to Brazil’s defiant ’70s counterculture. It was an intoxicating blend of visual arts, poetry and socially conscious polemic fused with Brazilian, Caribbean and African rhythms. Forty years later, on June 23, the mainstream music world will get a major shot of tropicalia with the release of Red Hot + Rio 2, an ambitious recording project that benefits AIDS awareness programs. The two-CD set offers 33 tracks featuring such U.S. and European pop, indie-rock, hip-hop, jazz and freak-folk singers as David Byrne, Beck, the Brazilian Girls, Beirut, Devendra Banhart, Madlib, Los Van Van, and Atom, as well as such tropicalia legends as Veloso, Gil, Ze, Marisa Monte, Bebel Gilberto and Joao Parahyba. It’s ready-made for the red-hot summer. Still, the initial tropicalia movement reached far beyond sultry dance music.

It was grounded in Brazilian poet Oswaldo de Andrade’s 1928 essay Manifesto Antropofago, which argued that the nation’s cultural cannibalism was its greatest strength. In the 1990s, that notion took root in the pop scene with modernist primitivists—aka culture vultures, the dismissive term used to describe big-name pop stars who preyed on world music. In the past two decades, Veloso, and, to a lesser extent, Ze, but especially Gil, have gained a modicum of international fame in their own right. That’s due largely to the

efforts of Byrne, who has recorded Gil’s bossa nova compositions and included Veloso, Gil and Ze’s own recordings on a series of high-profile Brazilian music compilations on Byrne’s eclectic Luaka Bop label (check out 1998’s excellent Beleza Tropical 2). In fact, everyone from Beck to the Beastie Boys to Stereo Lab has paid homage to the scintillating sounds of the tropicalia movement. This new double disc is the 12th compilation released by the Red Hot Organization, which uses the proceeds to raise awareness about the spread of HIV and treatment options for AIDS. Released on the heels of the 30th anniversary of the naming of that devastating virus, it’s the first Red Hot compilation since 2002’s Red Hot + Riot: The Music and Spirit of Fela Kuti. It also may be the best. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a song that grooves as heavy as the protracted percussion jam on “Aquele Abraco,” featuring Forro in the Dark, the Brazilian Girls and Angelique Kidjo. Or as hypnotic as the hippie drone of “Canto de lemanja,” sung by Mia Doi Todd. In a perfect world, that track and her duet with Jose Gonzalez on “Um Girassol da Cor do Seu Cabelo,” also included here, would make this littleknown L.A. singer an instant international sensation. And that’s the real strength of Red Hot + Rio 2. While there are big-name acts—notably, Byrne, Beck and John Legend—it’s the more obscure acts, including alternative hip-hop artist Om’Mas Keith and Brazilian singer Thalma de Freitas, that consistently deliver radiant performances to this sizzling disc. That may not be revolutionary, but it’s red hot nonetheless. ✹ Go tropicalia with Greg at gcahill51@gmail.com. Tune up to the Marin music scene at

Week of June 16-June 22, 2011

ARIES (March 20 - April 19) The sensitive Moon enters the pragmatic sign of Capricorn just as logical Mercury enters the emotional sign of Cancer, causing Friday to be one of those days when professional desires interfere with personal needs—or vice versa. On Saturday you’re prone to blurt out something you may later regret, so stay away from people who annoy you. After the weekend, your ruler (Mars) enters the lively sign of Gemini, making the first day of summer very interesting— barefoot dancing and frolicking in fountains? TAURUS (April 20 - May 19) Motivating Mars in your sign has insisted on starting projects and being more physically active. Feels a bit like boot camp, doesn’t it? Just make sure you stick to your program through Monday because on Tuesday, Mars moves on and your procrastinating ways could return. On the other hand, you remain upbeat and optimistic that all will work out in your favor. While this certainly feels great, it is not necessarily based completely in reality. Oh, well. GEMINI (May 20 - June 20) This is the final weekend of your zodiac cycle, which includes both the playful Sun and romantic Venus in your sign. If nothing else, innocent flirtation should be on the schedule. By Tuesday, impetuous Mars replaces the Sun in your sign. This is likely to turn you feisty and impatient with others—no matter how much you love them. So don’t be surprised if your sweetie decides to take a six-week vacation—without you. CANCER (June 21 - July 21) Your usual sensitivity is limited due to having restrictive Saturn in the emotional sector of your chart. Nevertheless, it is Father’s Day and Dad is looking forward to being doted on. Tuesday, your zodiac celebration begins by bestowing you with a warm and sunny disposition. For the next month, stern Saturn has as much chance of crimping your good mood as the principal had stopping Ferris Bueller’s day off. LEO (July 22 - August 22) Being ruled by the dramatic Sun gives you the opportunity to change roles every month. This week you finish up your portrayal of the witty bon vivant, impressing others with sophisticated banter. On Tuesday, your new role is the sensitive and caring nurturer who prepares meals to take to any pals who are under the weather. Yes, you could pick up gourmet dishes at the deli, but you would be cheating on this month’s character study... VIRGO (August 23 - September 21) You do want to be generous for dear old dad this Father’s Day, but prudent Saturn in your money house suggests a spending freeze. Fortunately, you’re good at crafts, so perhaps all you need is Popsicle sticks and glue. Meanwhile, the creative Sun enters your house of future hopes Tuesday. For an entire month, let your dreams take flight. You must first imagine your perfect future before you can obtain it. LIBRA (September 22 - October 22) Friday and Saturday are good for a reality check regarding what you really want in a relationship. Whether you’re already attached or looking, now is the time to define your objectives. You’re feeling rather sociable on Father’s Day, which helps whether you’re celebrating being a father or having a father figure in your life. Tuesday is the first day of summer. Time to set up the badminton set. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) It’s the final weekend of having combative Mars in charge of your one-on-one relationships. Try anyway to keep the peace on Father’s Day (a public service request brought to you by your family). On Tuesday, your interest turns to making travel plans when the Sun lights up your house of exploration. You’ve got a month to figure out where, when and how you can get out of town. Have fun. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20) You’ve been getting along with nearly everyone, which makes celebrating Father’s Day quite easy this year. After the weekend, however, there is a shift in your circumstances when argumentative Mars opposes your sign. Everybody seems to have a bone to pick with you. The best way to handle this energy is to use it for competitive sports or games. So, if you’re not on a team, you might want to carry around a deck of poker cards. CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 18) Your sweetie is likely to say something that shocks you or throws you off balance over the weekend. Fortunately, with empathetic Neptune influencing your response, you would rather sympathize than seek revenge. If you’re currently unattached, you might find your circumstances changing after Tuesday when the romantic Sun begins a one-month visit to your relationship house. Already attached? A park, a picnic and a shady tree—at least once a week. AQUARIUS (January 19 - February 17) The softhearted Moon in your sign over the weekend suggests a loving experience on Father’s Day. Pay no attention to the fact that your ruler (rebellious Uranus) occupies the combative sign of Aries. After Monday, you are inspired to express your adventurous side. Possible gear requirements include a skateboard, a hang glider, a surfboard, a racecar or a pair of water skis. Hopefully you can find a good deal on a protective helmet... PISCES (February 18 - March 19) If you aren’t writing a new song, a novel, a screenplay, a poem for your Dad, an autobiography, a blog about the music industry or a letter to your congressperson, you are missing out on your once-every-12-years expansion of your word skills. Those of you with more than two of these endeavors happening simultaneously may want to ask your agent to buy you a new iPad. ✹ Email Lynda Ray at cosmicclues@gmail.com or check out her website at www.lyndarayastrology.com 34 PACIFIC SUN JUNE 17 – JUNE 23, 2011

â&#x20AC;şâ&#x20AC;ş ADViCE GODDESSÂŽ by Amy Alko n

Q:

My co-worker was really hung up on a guy. She was convinced he liked her, and she did all the ďŹ&#x201A;irty things you advise, but he never made a move. This went on for months since she, like you, thought women should never, ever ask a man on a date. I ďŹ nally persuaded her to offer to make him a home-cooked meal. He thanked her but said he had a girlfriend. So, now she can put this behind her. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually relieved she ďŹ nally made a move.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Wise Friend

A:

When a woman ďŹ&#x201A;irts and ďŹ&#x201A;irts with a guy and he still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask her out, she knows there must be a reasonable explanation: 1. Hairball stuck in his throat. 2. He sprained his tongue. 3. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s temping as a monk. The woman can either wait months and months for him to cough up that hairball or accept that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a more reasonable explanation: Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not interested, not available or not man enough to tape hair on his chest and squeak out â&#x20AC;&#x153;You doinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; anything Friday night?â&#x20AC;? A guy whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that interested might still go out with a woman if she asked. Greatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if she wants a man whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that into her but whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hang around for a while (longer when his favorite TV show is in reruns). In the case of â&#x20AC;&#x153;not man enough,â&#x20AC;? some women tell themselves, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No problem! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m man enough to ask him!â&#x20AC;? They end up with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;not man enoughâ&#x20AC;? instead of a man. A little water and sunlight will grow carrot greens out of carrot tops in a jar lid, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet to be a relationship thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produced spontaneous growth of testicles. Enabling â&#x20AC;&#x153;not man enoughâ&#x20AC;? can have some unpleasant repercussions. What the man-worm lacks in assertiveness he usually makes up for in passive-aggressiveness. And say he and the woman are stopped by muggers. Do you think a guy who practically wets himself at the mere thought of asking a woman out will try to protect her... or push her toward the bad guys and shout, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here, take my girlfriend! Call me from U-rape-istan and let me know how it all went.â&#x20AC;? Being an adult involves accepting that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have all the answers all spelled out. Sometimes, you have to take no answer for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;no,â&#x20AC;? like when your eyelashes are about to fall out from all the batting and a guy still isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing any asking. Yeah, I knowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth cousinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-best girlfriend asked her husband out and now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re living blissfully ever after. But, in general, a guy who could be really into a woman will be less into her if all he has to do to get her is sit there and look pretty. Romantic pursuit is a two-person dance, not a one-woman show. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job to put out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yoo-hoo, I like youâ&#x20AC;? vibes. She then needs to wait for a response. If none comes, she needs to move onâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tempting as it is to try to go from zero to nesty before theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even had a ďŹ rst date: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home-cooked supper, Pa? Or would you prefer a get-to-know-you barn-raising?â&#x20AC;?

Q:

In the wake of the penis photo tweet that started â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weinergate,â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering whether women are actually turned on when they get a photo of some dudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s package.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Curious Guy Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Never Done Such A Thing

A:

Note that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a restaurant called Hooters but none called Testicles. While men get aroused by visuals alone, women typically need touch and emotion. Dr. Meredith Chiversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sexual arousal studies show that women do get turned on by video of strangers having sex (including, weirdly, strangers who are bonobo chimps), but strange menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disembodied bits really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it for most. (What, you were expecting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow, you stuck a cameraphone in your crotch just for me?â&#x20AC;?) Once a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved with a guy, she might be into the occasional peenmail. But, emailing a woman you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know a shot of your naked trousersaurus is like hitting on her at a party by unzipping your ďŹ&#x201A;y and letting it all hang out: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will ya look at this! Impressive, huh?â&#x20AC;? At least on the Internet, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear her run away screaming, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eeeuw! Gross! Creepy!â&#x20AC;? (or howling with laughter as she hits â&#x20AC;&#x153;forwardâ&#x20AC;?). Sure, emailing your meat takes less effort than buying a trench coat and heading down to the corner, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about as bad an idea. Generally speaking, the only package a woman wants coming to her from some stranger via the Internet is one from Sephora or Zappos.com. (Think new shoes, not new schnitzel.) â&#x153;š
