A Striking Contrast

The California Senate just approved the appointment of two men to the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB).

Appointee John Harris has owned thoroughbred horses since 1958 and is a prominent breeder of racehorses. He was elected a director of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA ) in 1974, served as the organization’s legislative chairman for 20 years, and was twice elected CTBA president. He served as CHRB chairman in 2003-04. He also has served on the boards of the Breeders’ Cup, Thoroughbred Owners of California, Grayson-Jockey Club Research Board and the Center for Equine Health/UC Davis Advisory Board.

The second appointee is Jesse Ch*oper. Ch*per is, umm . . . well, he teaches Constitutional Law at the University of California, Berkeley.

Rumor has it Dean JS has an interest in the ponies. I believe he has been spotted at Golden Gate Fields on more than one occasion.

To which I can only say: that is way cool.

JC is an AVID, I mean AVID horseracing fan. Go to his office, you'll see. And yes, you can find him at Golden Gate Park on the weekends.

JC is just building the qualifications he needs to get a job with FEMA before W leaves office.

It's a reappointment--JC was already a member of the Horse Racing Board.

Also, I'm not sure it's really worth trying to anonymize JC's name. He's a pretty well-known guy, and you can find his name on the CHRB website.

Pick me! Pick me!

Seriously, why aren't any of the empty lockers at Boalt home to a mini bar?

Or, maybe the better question is, why don't I know which locker has the mini bar
