When I was new in San Diego and started covering the Filipino community I learned about COPAO being the umbrella organization of smaller associations and affiliates. I thought it was representative of the community so I soon began to refer to its chair, then later president, as the equivalent of a mayor in a Philippine town. Guess what? The COPAO head liked the sound of mayor, and liked it so much that in events where there are non-Filipinos, she indicated she would like to be introduced as some kind of mayor of the Filipino community. From that time on, I stop using the comparison. I realized it was open to abuse. Besides, it was also misleading. San Diego and Los Angeles are indeed neighbors.

"I had a linguistics professor who said that it's man's ability to use language that makes him the dominant species on the planet. That may be. But I think there's one other thing that separates us from animals -- we aren't afraid of vacuum cleaners."--Jeff Stilson
