Exercise for body and soul...

The human rights activists of Tonatierra and the Barrio Defense Committees will do the annual PF Chang's 13.1 mile marathon one better this Saturday by holding a 13.4 mile march for human rights and dignity, beginning at Sheriff Joe Arpaio's notorious Fourth Avenue Jail and ending at Glendale Police Headquarters.

Along the way, marchers will stop at downtown Phoenix's Wells Fargo Tower and the Phoenix Police Headquarters at 620 West Washington Street, protesting what activists say are policies allowing local law-enforcement officers to profile Latinos and deliver undocumented persons to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"They're racially profiling just like Arpaio does," said march organizer Sal Reza. "That's become standard for police departments in Phoenix and Glendale."

Essentially, Arizona's racist Senate Bill 1070 gives the cops cover to racially-profile, according to the activists. Reza points to a November incident in Glendale where Univision used a bait car to play a game of "gotcha" on the Glendale PD.

Jaffy, I saw a show about your lineage last week. On the show NOVA, they did a story on how, now that they have mapped the Neanderthal genome and compared it to the modern human genome, they have proved that modern humans and Neanderthals bumped uglies.

Guess that explains why your mother smells so bad and walks all hunched over.

Actually illegal aliens will be legalized. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, a Republican, has started an immigration overhaul bill that President Obama will sign.

Or better yet, I hope you die of cancer inside Arpaio's hole so you transmit it to him.
