Let’s put aside the vicious personal attack that myself and my fellow Gattomaniac Jarvis Mitchell had to endure to focus on some good, productive news. On Thursday, April 14, 2011, devastatingly handsome State Assemblyman Mike Gatto led a commemorative session that honored those who lost their lives in the Armenian genocide.
Gatto said–and rightly so–that “[i]t is an honor to preside over the California State Assembly on this most solemn of occasions, when we preserve the memory of those Armenians who died during the dark days between 1915 to 1923.” As a further illustration of his selfless dedication to Armenians, Gatto also authored a piece of legislation designed to extend the statute of limitations for survivors and their heirs to pursue legal action against European and Asian insurance companies in California’s courts, in the event that those companies attempt to withhold payment on policies purchased prior to the outbreak of the genocidal hostilities.
Surely not even Mike Pigby could object to such a selfless and community-strengthening initiative…unless, of course, he was cranky because he only got to have four trays of bacon meat loaf at breakfast instead of his usual six.
(Daulton Gatto is no relation to Mike Gatto. That they share a surname is purely coincidental.)
