Daily Llama is a Democrat
The Daily Llama is going to visit our legistlature today, and I’m hot under the collar! I don’t like being preached at by a democrat in a fancy toga! i’m a Jesus man myself, thank you very much. And he better not ask me for none of my popcorn. That’s MY popcorn, Lalma! Mine! You middle easterners might preach sharing, but Jesus preaches hard work and boot straps and telling poor peopel they can’t have soda!

“We will have a coach bus leaving the Oak Creek office, 7435 S. Howell Ave. at 1:00 p.m. Monday and will return from Wheeling as soon as the Rally is over. We plan to be back in Oak Creek by 5 p.m.
Join us in a demonstration outside the meeting with Local 469 members and retirees to protest this injustice. We hope to see you there!”

With regard to “Wikipedia bumps women from ‘American novelists’ category”
From the discussion on the wiki entry American novelists:
“It’s worth noting that a single user, Johnpacklambert is responsible for the vast majority of these edits. He has made thousands of edits, removing African Americans from the category “American Television Actors”, and erroneously placing female authors of young adult fiction into the American Girl Authors category (intended for books in the American Girl series).”
