Serious stuff first:
Tomorrow Oscar and I are going on a march to the capital in protest against Arizona bill SB 1070, which makes it illegal to be in Arizona without proper paperwork. Or, if you will, it makes it illegal to be Mexican in Arizona. I think this bill is disgusting and racist and even though I do not live in Arizona I think it is important to fight it because this could be enacted in any state. I am against anyone being denied basic civil rights, whether it be about race or sex or sexual preference. Oscars parents are not originally from this country so this issue hits a personal note with him. However, this bill will not just target immigrants, but anyone that looks like one. I know that lots of cities are having protests this weekend so if it is something that you feel strongly about look for a march in your area. If you are in Colorado I will post the info below.

Now the silly stuff:
Last night I went dancing with Glen at the Mercury Cafe. Its the main place to go for swing dancing in Denver. It was a very casual night and we basically practiced some new Shag moves. I really want to get some video of us dancing but there needs to be someone there to hold the camera. Plus, the light at the Merc is really dim.
See? Super casual!!
The decor at the Mercury is really cool! This is the cafe part and the dance floor is upstairs. I want to steal all of the lamps they have!
The dance floor. Its pretty but bad for shooting video.
