The Lotus Festival Minus the Fireworks. And the Lotus (tags)

If you want an example on how the City and the Mayor of Los Angeles treats the Asian Americans just look at the Lotus Festival last July 10-11, 2010 in Echo Park. The Lotus Festival is taunted to be the Los Angeles’ annual tribute to cross-cultural Asian heritage. This year it reemerged in Echo Park this weekend after a one-year hiatus but still without one significant participant — the lotuses. What Kind of Tribute? The 32-year-old festival has grown over the years from a modest one-day event to a weekend-long extravaganza that has attracted as many as 150,000 people. This year, organizers said they expected roughly 30,000 visitors. Formerly the City of Los Angeles is responsible for the Festival started by API non-profits. But last year it was canceled. They say due to lack of funds and the city's budget problems. But the question asked is that why did the city did not cancel the CInco De Mayo or the Broadway Festival? IS there money for Latinos but not for Asians.?

FAIR ACTION ALERT: Op-Ed Echo Chamber: Little Space for Dissent to Military Line (tags)

Following September's terrorist attacks, two leading dailies used their op-ed pages as an echo chamber for the government's official policy of military response. A total of 44 columns in the NY Times and Washington Post clearly stressed a military response, against only two columns stressing non-military solutions. Given the choice between a either military assault or pressing for the extradition and trial of those responsible, a substantial minority either chose extradition (30 percent) or were undecided (16 percent). These people had next to no representation in the op-ed debate.
