After two decades in the U.S. I still feel a thrill of recognition when I see a South Asian name in the media. A winner on a cooking show on the Food Network, a congressional candidate in Kansas, a new appointee to some team on the White House - it does not matter, there is always that twinge of pride.

I look out for these names.

That was why I noticed Dharun Ravi’s name. And felt a chill go through me. 18-year-old Tyler Clementi had jumped off the George Washington Bridge after his roommate and a friend secretly taped him on their webcam having a sexual encounter with another man. And then they streamed it on the Internet.

The roommate’s name was Dharun Ravi. The headline on one article said
Dharun Ravi: The Reason for Tyler Clementi’s Suicide.

Modern Times Bookstore Falls on Hard Times

By Suzanne Manneh, Sep 24, 2010 10:00 AM

 The Mission District's Modern Times Bookstore, which has catered to progressive, Spanish-speaking and LGBT communities for 39 years, may become a casualty of the financial crisis and other factors, reports Michael Lucas for El Tecolote. The store's operations coordinator, Kermit Playfoot, told El Tecolote that Modern Times had no intention of closing its doors. But the shop is hurting. The amount of money it needs to stay in business has not been disclosed to the public, although bookstore staff members posted a letter on their website asking for community support, after initially sending the letter to the store's membership base. Modern Times staff members say they need help staying afloat until the more traditionally lucrative fall and winter months.
