Like most people I know I tend to save my overtly political musings for Facebook (suck it Hobby Lobby!), but, the latest ad campaign from the Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was just too good not to share with you.
Highlighting the fact that the Krogers grocery store chain bans shirtless people, outside food and drink and skateboards from their stores but allows their patrons to carry loaded firearms while shopping, the bold, striking images in these ads say it all. This is one completely ass-backward policy, amigos! Crazy town! I only wish there was a Krogers near me that I could boycott or ride my skateboard in. And I don't even own a skateboard! Grrrr!
And while some might argue that the ads (which began running in newspapers today) are preaching to the choir, the fact that similar campaigns by the group have been effective in reversing the gun policy at national retail and restaurant chains like Chipotle, Sonic, Target and Starbucks gives me hope. So, rock on, Moms Demand Action. Dads demand it too!
To learn more about the group's “groceries not guns” campaign check out this super cool piece on today's Huffington Post.

When I told Greta today what I was thinking about blogging about tonight she insisted that I include some pictures of her and her BFF Katana. If you read my previous post, you know why some of the older pics here just about break my heart wide open. Oy, here I go again…talk amongst yourselves…
As you can see from the pics, these two really were peas in a pod and that’s really hard to find, and when you’re both only children, well, it’s kind of magical. The term “sisters from another mother” comes to mind. Anyway, this is just a sampling of the many adorable pics of these two that you can find on the West L.A. Stay-At-Home-Dads new Facebook page, so, if you’re looking for more cuteness, check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/WestLAstayathomedads/
And in the meantime…enjoy the pics and safe travels to Katana and her family!
