Punk politics: I was sitting in the Vista In-N-Out burger last night hanging out with some friends when a group of punk teens came in. You know, the mohawk haircut kind. One fo them had his hair dyed all sorts of multicolored hues and in footlong spikes at every angle.
The conversation turned to what sorts of job opportunities are available for someone attired like these kids. One of my friends, a realtor, queried another, a Marine just back from Iraq, on how he would trust someone like that kid.
"Would you give him your money if he was behind the counter at a bank?"
"Sure. If they trust him to be back there."
"Would you vote for him for governor of California?"
"He couldn't do worse than Gray Davis."
That says more about Davis' popularity here than any poll you'll read.
