  •  Sharon Quirk-Silva in the 65th Assembly District (13+ / 0-)

    This was a pick up in the once deep-red Orange County area. This district includes Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Palma, Stanton and most of west Anaheim.
    I grew up in Fullerton and she beat my old high school student body president Chris Norby.
    During the campaign Norby managed to line himself up with the goofball wing of the Republican.

    Brandi Chastain will forever be remembered for making the game-winning kick for the U.S. at the 1999 Women's World Cup, and then stripping down to her sports bra.

    But she had a harder time scoring points in a ceremony before the California Assembly on Monday.

    Chastain was on hand along with Brazilian soccer player Sissi for what was expected to be a routine adoption of a resolution to honor the 40th anniversary of Title IX. But what Chastain didn't see coming was an expression of resentment to the federal law that mandated gender equity in high school and collegiate sports.

    Assemblyman Chris Norby contended that Title IX's advances for women had also meant fewer athletic opportunities for men.

    Hopefully that's the last we'll here from Norby and maybe he can get some treatment for that attack of massive stupidity.
