the new Bolivian President

The fact that Bolivia elected its first indigenous president is as significant as when Nelson Mandela became president of South Africa.

Will the United States ever elect a Native American as president, or Australia appoint an Indigenous aboriginal as governor-general or prime minister?

What do you think?

Now why are the American media calling President Evo Morales 'Indian'? He is Bolivian. He was never born in India. Just because an explorer made a mistake hundreds of years ago, doesn't make it right. Get with the program!

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Today was another scorcher. I know my human told me to stay inside with all the blinds down, but I still went out to my deck. Just in case there was a breeze.

Anyway, tonight we are either watching on TV, Supernatural or RACE - The Power of an Illusion on our ABC, while taping the other to watch later (they clash).
