Oh piffle! Grew up in CA, up and down the coast. 60s liberal. People's
Park, Alcatraz alumni. Slumber parties with Nancy Ling Perry. Protests on
the capital steps when I was 5! I logged 35,000 miles a year traveling from
one side of this continent to the other hauling horses. Canada, Mexico, the
Bahamas, England and had an invite to Bahrain. Lived in Mexico. Hobnobbed
with millionaires back in the days when a million was worth something. Knew
presidents, talked to mucky mucks in government on a routine basis, even had
parts in Disney movies (Pollyanna anyone <g>) and had celebrities donate
time for my fundraisers for DD children. Still "talk" to folks in Russian,
the Ukraine, Australia, England, Germany, Belgium, Finland, Canada, and a
dozen or more other countries. I've got cousins living in just about every
country on the earth and have relatives married to folks of just about every
color and shade thereof.
And if working the Gladiator Schools doesn't give ya a "broader array of
racial and cultrual interactions," pray tell what does!
