Today, All Sorts of Things

Went to Stanford to listen in on Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies’ Honors Thesis Presentations. Half of the news buildings are called ‘Munger.’

The first presenter read her poetry.

The second presenter talked of her work with a Redwood City organization, teaching Sex Education.

The third talked about breasts and their significance and about a genre called verbatim theater which pulls together excerpts from interviews (Like Anna Deavere Smith; I believe she pioneered the genre)

The fourth talked about the stunning decline in the number of abortion clinics in her home state of Texas.

Went home to listen for election results and found that the measure to raise San Francisco Bay Area bridge tolls (except for the Golden Gate Bridge) had passed. And that Judge Aaron Persky, who in 2016 sentenced rapist Brock Turner to six months in prison was likely to be recalled, the first judge to be recalled since 1932.

Kudos to the two Swedish grad students who stopped Turner and chased him down so that he could face charges. It happened here, right here, on campus. History.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
