Los Angeles, CA --On Sunset blvd, heading toward UCLA -- July 16, 2007

Reading Signs of Life in the USA, Readings on Popular Culture for Writers, by Sonia Maasik and Jack Solomon, while trying to write a paper that's due in half an hour. The book discusses the objectification of women, how, sometimes, in advertising, a woman's body is shown but not her face as if she has no identity.

His favorite stories--bible stories about David....he took the time to tell me the story of David and Goliath, explaining how, before a battle they would often take the strongest man on each side and have them fight each other first and how, when Goliath was brought out, no one wanted to fight him...except for little David who was bringing his brothers food for the strength during the battle.

He also likes Spiderman comics.
