Why Is Bigot Hotelier Doug Manchester Still on California’s Tourism Board?

manchesterdoug

Hotelier Doug Manchester, who donated $125,000 to support Prop 8, tried to make amends with the gays by offering $100k in hotel vouchers and $25k in gay organization donations. The make-good didn’t work, and a boycott of Manchester’s hotels — including the enormous Manchester Grand Hyatt — remains in effect. And yet there Manchester still stands, fulfilling his two-year term on the California Travel and Tourism Commission’s board, a position Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger gave him. A state facing a $40 billion budget crisis that already eschewed gay wedding dollars should not, perhaps, have a discriminatory hotel magnate be the one responsible for luring tourist cash.

      I’m torn on this. Do I like what he stands for? Obviously not! Do I think he should be able to be on the board despite his personal views? I sort of do. If you could prove he was using his office to work against gays and lesbians, I would by all means want to see him gone, but until then, although I find his views morally bankrupt, I respect his right to have those views.

      Hello.
      I see in like your second post you said your reader was first and the burner was second. if its that way more then likly your reader is at the end of the IDE cable and the burrner is in the middle of the IDE Cable. Which I asume the burner is the lite-on. Switching them should fix your problem. Put your reader in the middle and let that do the grunt work, and extend the life of your burnner by placing that at the end of the cable. Let me know if that fixes your problem.
