At last week’s Whittier City Council meeting, nearly 400 emailed letters were received commenting about censuring Councilwoman Jesssica Martinez for her attendance at the “stop the steal” rally  in Washington, D.C., that eventually led to an invasion of the US Capitol. However, none were allowed to speak by phone, Zoom or some other way, just as in other meetings since March of 2020 as the result of pandemic restrictions.

A fortified Secret Service checkpoint a block from the White House the day before Joe Biden's inauguration on January 19, 2021. Anthony L. Fisher Washington, DC, the day before Biden's inaugurated is a sad, eerie, militarized place.  25,000 troops occupy DC, and ten-foot high fencing slices through some of the most iconic destinations in our capital — essentially cutting the city in half.   Remember this moment — and that Trump's lies and fake conspiracy theories obliterated a norm tha...

Scoping the Battlefield

I biked down to the White House and over to the Capitol to survey security for the inauguration. Random pictures attached — none too interesting or illuminating. After 9-11 (I worked a block from the White House back then), I am no longer shocked by a few humvees and troops with serious weapons in DC. Before 9-11, troops had not been in DC since 1968. A few observations: there’s a lot of tall expanded metal fencing and big dump trucks, as well as jump up barriers, and concret...
