A Lot Of Days

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason.

I didn't know that Gavin Newsom is dyslexic. Nor that his favorite game is Twister.

Nikolai Kisler, a fourth-grader, said he wished Newsom had explained how he became mayor. But he hastened to add that he's sure Newsom is qualified.

"He knows a lot of things since he's been mayor for 100-and-something days," he said. "That's a lot of days."


One little girl asked Newsom whether he is married, and he told her all about former San Francisco prosecutor Kimberly Guilfoyle Newsom -- and which news shows to watch for her legal commentary.

"You can see my wife -- she's on TV. She's a legal analyst, which means she's a lawyer," he said. "She's amazing. She's beautiful and smart! She's not dyslexic. She's got it easy -- so easy."

I guess the average non-dyslexic does have it easier.
