      Guerrero gets 15 years to life

      PERVIN LAKDA WALLA Sentinel Staff Writer

      Frank Vidana told a Kings County Superior Court judge this morning how his niece cries in the middle of the night for her mother, Mary Perkins, who was killed last year. Carmen Guerrero, 30, who pleaded guilty to the murder, stood beside his court-appointed lawyer. He did not react to Vidanas comments. He was received a sentence of 15 years to life in prison. Vidana said Perkins was his youngest sister and one of 10 siblings. Her death has ripped a hole in the family that will never be repaired and taken a mother away from a child, he said. Vidana came to court with four other family members. They accompanied by Eva Murillo of the county probation departments victim witness program. The program lends emotional assistance, among other functions, to crime victims. Guerrero's lawyer, Donna Tarter, told the court that he is very remorseful. Tarter said she knew that Guerrero's plea to second-degree murder allowed the imposition of only a 15 years-to-life imprisonment sentence. However, she said, the court could consider probation. Tarter said that it appears a psychological problem led Guerrero to the killing. Guerrero, 31, was convicted of stabbing Perkins, 38, during a domestic dispute in their apartment at 920 61-2 Avenue in Corcoran. The incident occurred Aug. 24, 1995. Police found Guerrero at the scene and arrested him there. He reportedly confessed to the crime soon afterward. Guerrero and Perkins had lived together prior to the killing, according to Corcoran police. Their 14-year-old daughter who lived with them in the apartment called police that night. Kings County Superior Court Judge Peter Schultz denied probation. "The act of murder in this case is certainly an impulsive one, (but) it certainly shows a disregard for human life." Guerrero also was ordered to pay $1,000 in restitution to the state and $1,500 restitution to Vidana as repayment for funeral expenses. Guerrero was awarded 287 days credit for time already served in custody and for good behavior.

    1. It is a quasi-sacred object for me, an object with which I have a long personal association. I have carried it from place to place as part of my library.

      Interesting understanding of the issue of pre-set links:

      Nothing, however, prevents using the computer for quite conventional or traditional notions about the relation of a work to its author and to its historical and cultural contexts. ... The apparent freedom for the student to "browse" among various hypertext "links" may hide the imposition of predetermined connections. These may reinfornce powerful ideological assumptions about the causal force of historical context on literary works. It depends on what links have been set up or on the use's inventiveness in setting up new ones.

      --Also quite interesting because it is pre-search engine.

      Some of the claims for the revolutionary effect of computers on humanistic study have clearly been exaggerated or wrongly formulated. Seen from a certain point of viewm a computer, even one connected by modem or Ethernet to the Wolrd Wide Web, is, as many people would claim, no more than a glorified typewriter, though one should not underestimate the changes this glorification makes. An example is the new ease of revision, the facility with which things can be added, deleted, or moved from one place to another in a computer files as opposed to a typed manuscript. Such ease gradually encourages the adept in computer composition to think of what he or she writes as never being in quite finished form. Whatever is printed is alsways just one stage in a potentially endless process of revision, deletion, addition, and rearrangement.

    1. We're not the ones who're meant to follow.

      Armstrong and Dirnt turned to music as an escape and to bring a little excitement into their admittedly staid, suburban lives. Though many of their punk brethren have accused them of selling out, complaining that real punk rock cannot be found on a major corporate label, Green Day's success has not cast a shadow over their drive for fun. Dirnt commented to Rolling Stone, "I told Bill, 'Let's just take it as far as we can. Eventually we'll lose all the money and everything else, anyway. Let's just make sure we have one great big story at the end.'"

    2. Green Day

      Green Day began in San Francisco, California, as an escape for two troubled teens— Michael Dirnt and Billie Joe Armstrong. Dirnt (born Michael Pritchard) was the son of a heroin-addicted mother. A Native American woman and her white husband adopted Dirnt, but they divorced when he was an adolescent. At that time, Dirnt returned to his birth mother, then left home at age fifteen, renting a room from the family of a school friend—Billie Joe Armstrong. (The friendship had solidified around the time of the death of Armstrong's father, when Billie Joe was about ten years old.) Dirnt and Armstrong eventually moved out on their own, inhabiting various basements throughout Berkeley, California, and frequenting a club called the Gilman Street Project.Armstrong and Dirnt hired Jeff Kiftmeyer as the new drummer and began touring. Upon their return to California in 1990, Gilman Street Project regular Tré Cool replaced Kiftmeyer as the drummer. This combination turned into the formula for Green Day's success as the band tried to bring punk rock into the mainstream.This trio of tattooed, pierced, and dyed-hair 22-year-olds emerged in 1994 as one of the hottest commodities in the entertainment business and ushered in punk as the heir apparent to grunge in rock and roll's quirky evolution. For all their efforts, the band has helped make punk mainstream and opened the gates for other punk bands including former Lookout! labelmates, the Offspring and Rancid.

    2. Flanagin et al.(1998) developed a multivariate logistic regression model totest the hypothesis that coauthored articles (operationalizedas papers with six or more authors) were increasing at a rategreater than would be expected when confounding vari-ables, such as the number of centers, were taken into ac-count. They found that 19% of original research reports hadhonorific authors, individuals who were garnering phantomfodder for their curricula vitae. They also discovered that11% of articles had ghost authors, which means that quite afew individuals were not receiving due credit for theircreative or material contributions to the research process—“the ghostly inferred hosts of unnamed actors who shiftedinstruments about and exerted their muscular labor’(Shapin, 1995, p. 379). Their findings, based on surveys ofcorresponding authors, are in keeping with other estimatesof honorific authorship in the biomedical literature.
