  3. Dear Editor,

    Hepatitis C affects people of all ages. However, I think that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation that “Baby-Boomers,” persons born between 1945 and 1965, should be tested for hepatitis C is an excellent idea since approximately 75% of people infected with hepatitis C are believed to be from this age group. The majority of people with hepatitis C do not know that they have it because they can be without symptoms until it is too late. Hepatitis C is the leading cause of liver cancer and liver transplants. Now, there are relatively short and easy treatments consisting only of pills which can cure hepatitis C. Indeed, this is sure to reduce illness and death among this group of American citizens.

  4. Dear Ekevara Kitpowsong,
    My name is Naaz Modan and I am the photo editor of the Daily Targum. The issue we are running tomorrow features Isaiah Johnson, a previous student from the City College of San Francisco. I would like to use a photo of him in tomorrow’s issue of The Daily Targum, and was wondering if you could provide us with any courtesy photos of him in action during a game from his football career at CCSF.
    Thank you,

    Show Focuses on Social Justice Issues that Exist On & Off The Comedy Stage

    San Francisco, CA- On Tuesday September 8th, 2015, three LGBT comics come together on stage to tackle the issue of diversity in comedy. As more of us observe storylines in television and film (as with shows like Empire, How To Get Away With Murder, Scandal and Orange is The New Black), we see more characters who are LGBT and people of color, however, as we celebrate the visibility of diversity in what we see on television, diversity in mainstream is still grossly misrepresented. One of the areas where the lack of representation exists, especially in many mainstream arenas is stand up comedy.
    Think about late night, Comedy Central, even the list of comics that we have to choose from to see on stage, and its safe to say that the inclusion of people of color, and especially LGBT performers is almost non apparent. For this reason, these three queer comics come together, using comedy to not only hold up the mirrors that we use to laugh and the craziness that exists around us, but to also use it as a platform of visibility and to give the public the option of supporting more exposure of queer performers in comedy.
    The show, entitled “My Spirit Animal is A Butch Lesbian” was organized by Sampson McCormick, an internationally touring LGBT comic who will also be a part of the line up. It’s a part of somewhat of an initiative aimed at creating the conversation around and more opportunities for queer comics to be seen, as well as a new documentary film that is currently in production, entitled “A Tough Act To Follow”. “It kind of sucks that there are so few opportunities for LGBT comics to have just as many opportunities as everyone else.” he says. “I’ve been doing this for close to 15 years, and socially, gay may seem to be in, but you’d still never believe how many doors still get slammed in our faces. It’s time to change that. We’re funny too–in fact, sometimes, funnier, because you have to show up and prove yourself over and over again.”
    The show takes place on Tuesday September 8th, 2015 at 730PM at the Punch Line Comedy Club 444 Battery Street San Francisco, CA Tickets: $15
