"My parents were immigrants from Vietnam. They’d been through a war, and they didn’t want their child to go through the same hardships they went through, so they tried to control my life as much as possible. For them, control was love. But I had to move away from it."
Welfare cowboy Cliven Bundy’s failed last stand isn’t the only thing making Nevadans blush this week.
Gov. Brian Sandoval (R-Nev.) recently issued a proclamation designating this week “state employees week” — usually, no big deal, governors issue things like this all the time. However, the proclaimation misspelled the word “cultural” in describing the work state employees do to protect “cultural resources.”
The proclamation extolled the hard work of state employees in conserving and preserving “clitorial resources” in Nevada. Perhaps he was just courting the vote of those who have a clitoris?
Oops. Spell-check AND copyediting are crucial, kids. If the governor needs a copy-editor, simianhighway might be available.
