And now they’re coming for the Pilipinos…the PILIPINOS! The loyal and obedient Pilipinos, colonized subjects of the United States not even 100 years ago, comrades along the Bataan Death March during World War II, supplier of an outsize number of this country’s healthcare professionals (especially Registered Nurses) and so on. Perhaps it’s a hidden blessing that there’s no visits to North County/Del Mar this year…

Pilipinos not exactly Chinese, but maybe it’s a case of that old notion of  ‘you people all just look alike’. YOU PEOPLE. Personally, we remember one warm summer evening at old Frantic City, and the race had just been declared official. The winning jockey was named Chin Yang. Next thing we know, some guy is pointing at us and saying, ‘Hey, Chin Yang! There’s Chin Yang!’ Yes, we are height-challenged, but we were not Chin Yang. It ended up not being hurtful or anything, but it’s just one of those things that must be put up with, tolerated, a microaggression to withstand. Maybe we’ll have to suffer more of that sort of thing — stronger language, more threatening gestures, implied physical violence — here in La-La Land proper; hope not, but it cannot be ruled-out entirely. Only The Shadow knows, more will be revealed, etc.

There were seven selected races yesterday. There were 16 win-overlay wagers, and it was as pleasant as taking a walk in Oceanside, Calif., and hearing this directed at yourself: ‘YOU STARTED THE CORONA!’ Nevertheless, America is good. Let’s start there before thinking about ‘great’. Let’s make America good first. Thank you!
