Yours Truly at an orphanage in Baidoa, Somalia, in December of 1992. I was escorting Los Angeles and San Diego news media to cover the military relief efforts ongoing as part of Operation Restore Hope. I remember being filled with pride and optimism then, believing America was using our wealth and power to make a real impact on the lives of these suffering people. President Clinton's cowardly retreat from Somalia replaced those hopeful feelings with shame and regret. Thanks to our playboy-in-chief, we gave these children (and other Somalis) hope only to let them down in the end. This is the Clinton Legacy.

Ivory Tower of Academia?


Here is UCB's Sather Tower, more commonly referred to as the Campanile, which is Italian for "big tower with a clock on it." Photoshop helped me save my badly backlit snapshot.
