 Subject: Ellen and Anne


 I don't see the Ellen and Anne as a breakup of lesbians. I see it as a
 breakup of a lesbian and a gold digger. Anne reminds me of a "trophy wife."
 She looks like the type of women you see down at the yacht club. You know, a
 gorgeous 28 year old blonde, dripping in diamonds and gold, hanging on the
 arm of a 65 year old goat who just happens to be worth millions.

 If I remember correctly, Ellen and Anne got together just as Ellen hit it
 big. Before, Anne was straight. When she saw Ellen's money, she found out
 she was gay.

 Or am I too cynical?



 Ask again later.

 Babbitt Inquiry Report Released

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The special prosecutor tasked to investigate
 Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt released her final report Tuesday,
 explaining why she had previously found insufficient evidence to prosecute him.

    The investigation stemmed from allegations that Babbitt rejected a proposed
 Indian casino because of campaign contributions and then lied to Congress about it.

 Remember when that Semper Fi traitor Ollie North lied to Congress?  The GOP
 justified that by saying, "Congress is such shit, they don't deserve the truth."
 That's a true story, Kay.

 The report, over 600 pages long, was met with sharp words from the
 chairman of the House committee Babbitt testified to, and relief from
 Babbitt's office that the ordeal is finally over.

 Secret-bastard maker Dan Burton, (R-Watermelons), said he was disappointed at
 statements in the report that Babbitt conceded to a grand jury that some of his statements
 "either were not entirely accurate or at least constituted 'overstatement.'''

"I am very disturbed that a cabinet official would come before my committee and give
 false testimony,'' Burton said in a statement.

 ha ha

 Independent Counsel Carol Elder Bruce, a veteran prosecutor who was
 assigned the case in March 1998, said in October that she would not
 seek indictments against Babbitt or anyone else involved in the controversy.
 In the report, Bruce said she found ``no evidence."

 Both Clinton Administrations are still felony-free.
 Can Smirk Daddy say that?   No
 Can Reagan's minions say that?   No.

 ha ha

 "Minions" is such a funny word.

 Subject: lesbian quiz, all is explained!!!

 Hi.  I'm a lesbian. self-proclaimed.  i can't speak for everyone but i can give you
 my own point of view, and maybe my experience talking to other women about
 these same  issues.... apologies  if this is too long-winded....

 > Let's say Ellen meets a 9, that is a girl more butch than herself.
 > Does Ellen then become the fem?  Is it all relative?

 I'd have to say it's relative.  everyone sees "butch/femme" differently.  i guess if you were
 looking at them as an outsider you would say "there is the butch one" but i'n not sure that
 it really matters to the subjects.... i dont' know many lesbians who go around with a calculator
 planning out the dynamics of a relationship.  a lot of people i know totally disregard the
 butch/femme thing as a self-identifier.  In the sense that it is not necessary to have a butch
 and a femme in a relationship.

 That last sentence was important, but how can that be?
 Maybe instead of butch/femme, we should talk dominant/submissive?

 Traditional male/female relationships usually have the man in charge.
 That reckless testosterone is a motivator and instigator, and the female
 is usually the governor that holds the testosterone in place.

 I don't know Anne and Ellen, but I see Ellen saying, "I'd like to see this movie
 and eat dinner at that restaurant, is that OK with you?"

 And Anne would say, "I'd lke that movie, but not the restaurant," so they compromise.
 On Ellen's next date, if she starts picking the movie and the restaurant, and her date
 is an 8 or a 9, wouldn't that start a fight?


 > And if that's true, how does that work?  How would you tell?
 > Are signals, say, at a nightclub, sent via dress code?

 All i can say to that is, it SUCKS.  I guess if you go to gay bars, which i don't,
 you can expect the women to be mostly gay, but still straight ppl go to gay bars.
 my friends always talk about getting hit on by men at a LESBIAN bar.  i dont' know.
 I can never tell when a girl is gay, unless they have some kind of rainbow logo somewhere,

 Years ago, Al Pacino did a movie called "Cruising," where the bi's would put a hanky in
 the right pocket, and the gays a hanky in the left. That's what I meant about the dress code.
 Maybe things have come a long way since then - that movie must be 20 years old.

 > Likewise, if Anne (is she still gay?) is a 4, and meets a 2,
 > does she then become the one who has to take out the trash?

 Every relationship is different even for lesbians.   it would just depend on the person
 and what kind of power balance they like in a relationship.

 Interesting... I see the embryo of some humor there.
 When Anne is looking for her next partner, she'll have to factor in whether or not she'll
 be the one getting up in the middle of the night with the shotgun to check on the noise
 they both heard coming from the garage. If she picks "Sally," then Sally would be the one
 getting up, being the 9, but if she decides on "Julie," who's a 5, then Anne has to get up.

 > And if she DID make the conscious choice, would that not then bolster the GOP's
 > argument that gays shouldn't adopt? If gay behavior is learned, wouldn't the adopted
 > child have a better chance with straight parents?

 I don't believe gay behavior is "learned".
 If emotional/physical attraction and relating were learned, i would be straight.
 I would be living in Rat's Ass going to community college and dating a raging alcoholic abuser
 if i modeled after what i saw as a kid.

 ha ha

 SO.  i don't believe that if someone's parents are gay it would make any difference.....
 i think it has so much more to it.  I'm saying there are no blanket statements that define
 the origins of sexual orientation.  At least according to my own judgment after having
 done a lot of reading, research and talking to other gay people.

 Anyway, what's so bad about being gay??  (Oh,  i forgot, we're taking this country to
 hell in a handbasket, and we want to teach fisting in 3rd grade.  We so evil!!)

 ha ha
 Must be part of the "secret gay agenda."

 > If two 5's meet, is there simply no friction? (pun intended)
 > And how is no friction possible if one 5 looks like Angie Harmon?

 Again, depends on the individuals.  Every time.  I dont' know of any fixed norms in the
 group i hang around with.  It might be different with some who are older or in different groups,
 but i can't speak for them.   As for angie harmon, that's a tough one as well....

 But - would a femme "butch up" for an Angie Harmon?
 Would a butch start using lipstick for an Angie Harmon?

 The point I was trying to get to there was, assuming other people agree that Angie Harmon is
 very attractive, wouldn't 3's and 7's both be attracted to her? It's easy to figure out with straights,
 because all men are pigs. Most men would do anything for a woman like that. My first boss in
 the finance busines, Danny Ray McCown, used to say, "BartCop, see that blonde in the red dress?
 I'd ride a garbage truck in Tyler, Texas for 50 years for one night with her."

 Trust me, most straight men think like that.
 That's why a president would risk everything for a little tongue action.

 Sometime i'll send in this funny story i got from a brochure of the Rush Limbaugh tour of
 Cape Girardeau.  Apparently you can tour around to see where rush plunked his nazi ass
 all over Cape.  I'll have to find that thing.  It's hilarious.

 ha ha
 Sounds good.
 Let us know if you find it...

 Subject: The Kiss

 Whenever I thought about "The Kiss" it was the one on Ally McBeal
 I was thinking about -- Ally and Lucy Liu, if I remember right.

 Now, I am thinking about Al and Tipper and the
 "You still turn me on after all these years, babe" Kiss.

 What is a man to do!


 That Ali-Lucy kiss was as hot as the sun.

 Quote of the Day
   From USA Today, page 2A

 How has CBS managed to keep the Survivor winner a secret?

 "People don't want to know this. It would be like giving away the ending
 to a book. People have invested a lot of time and energy cheering contestants on.
 The whole phenomenon would be injured of somebody leaked.
 People hate somebody who gives away a good secret.
 You don't want to be another Linda Tripp."

 Survivor Fever

 From: (Withheld)

 Last spring, one or two months before CBS's Survivor premiered, I was
 watching an NBC Dateline broadcast at 2:00 am on a Monday morning (part of
 NBC's All-Night broadcast.) It concerned the winner of the Survivor contest,
 and some controversy involving his personal life. No, it had nothing to do with his
 sexual orientation, but if I recall, he was from a New England coastal town.

 It was definitely not Rudy--of him, I would have remembered...the winner, therefore,
 I "predict" will be Richard.  Look, I could be totally wrong about this, what with
 NBC apparently in collusion with CBS and everyone else in withholding the identity of
 the lone "survivor." And I am getting a bit old, but I don't think my memory's gone
 THAT  bad. I'm wondering if any other Bartcop fans recall that Dateline broadcast...

 P.S.--Please don't publish my e-mail address. Thanks. And I've been
 digging your RL-LNW/Bartcop page since discovering it via Yahoo in 1997.
 Keep on truckin'.

 Looks like some ditto-monkeys are getting a little too worked up

 Subject: Sarah Brady (on Bush and guns)

 Sarah Brady says

 In 1997, Gov. Bush actually signed a bill to allow carrying of handguns
 in churches, nursing homes, hospitals and amusement parks.

 Let me guess, in the same order
 1) To deal with unbelievers
 2) In case Kvorkian shows up
 3) To make sure the unborn make it out alive
 4) To amuse oneself...duh!


 P.S. I looked up the law enacted (HR 2909, on 9/1/97) on the Texas web pages.
 The enacted law adds a line to the code which excludes the following list from places
 where concealed weapons cannot be carried (subject to the condition that
 the person has not been informed they are tresspassing)

 (4) on the premises of a hospital licensed under Chapter 241, Health and Safety Code,
 or on the premises of a nursing home licensed under Chapter 242, Health and Safety Code,
 unless the license holder has written authorization of the hospital or nursing home administration,
 as appropriate;
 (5) in an amusement park; or
 (6) on the premises of a church, synagogue, or other established place of religious worship.

 Hollywood Minute

 Do you think Eminem will live to see 2001?
 Don't you get the feeling he's one bad day from checking out?

 He's in the news again today.
 His wife filed for divorce, which will probably save her life, and she has said
 in court papers that he's, "a nut." and should not be allowed to have visitation
 with their daughter because of his "ongoing antics."
 And he's a gun nut.

 Sure, I carry a gun, but you don't see my name in the paper ever week
 because I pistol-whipped some dude while my bodyguards held him.

 Oh, yeah, his mother has filed a second suit against him, based on
 comments he made to the press about the original, $10,000,000 suit
 she filed last year - and then, of course, there's the drugs.

 This guy has "Tupac" written all over him.

 I've never lost a wife, mother and daughter all at one time,
 but it's enough to make "poor" Eminem join the Women Hater's Club.

 He might see New Year's, but will he see 2001?

 Idea by Adam Stern  boxwood@texas.net

 There's a new button on  bartcop.com - it's the Magic Chinaco Button.

 ha ha

 If you click on it, there's a chance you can have God's Finest Nectar
 delivered to your door, ...your boat ...or ...your treehouse!

 ha ha

 They want $45 for a bottle, plus delivery, which isn't a bad price.
 Chinaco Anejo isn't something you drink everyday after work.
 Koresh, you'd need a briefcase full of cash to do that...

 But for some special occasion, birthday, anniversary or ...football game,
 there's nothing like twenty drops of springtime dancing on your tongue.
 And in some places, they don't sell Chinaco.at any price.

 ...and this is not an endorsement of alcohol.
 It's an endorsement of only one brand of an adult beverage.


 If you try some of this, here's what'll eventually happen.
 Maybe 30 days later, you'll be in a restaurant and you'll overhear some
 knucklehead order a shot of  Cuervo Gold  and you'll gag your food.

 The other thing, and nobody knows about this, ...it's extremely addictive.
 I'm not talking about the alcohol, I'm saying the Chinaco.
 If you have debt, credit or alcohol problems, that may not be the right button
 for you but if you can control yourself, and don't have another way to taste
 the good stuff, this button might come in handy.

 What else do I need to cover...?

 Oh, they have other stuff too, but why buy regular liquor?
 If you're paying for shipping, don't ship crap.
 And they only deliver to 24 states, thanks to religion, but they deliver to dozens of
 countries where the people aren't as sexually oppressed as this backward hole is.
 (Alan in UK!)

 Check the site for details, and lastly, you nutty kids reading bartcop.com
 Don't you be digging in Dad's wallet for his credit card while he's asleep.
 Don't you be having it express shipped for that party Saturday.
 You just never-you-mind fine tequila till you get a few more miles on ya.
 This is an adult thing, ...now get outta here.

 There's only one candidate in the race with a hat like this.


 I said I wasn't going to watch Survivor tonight, but I'm going to straddle and
 flip-flop on that topic and reverse my course with a totally new direction.

 This Survivor deal is probably going to be a big thing.

 In the TV Guide, it says they start with two stabs-in-the-back, which includes some
 old-fasioned leaving two, then the last seven losers put
 the final two under cross-examination, using "tribal justice," (ha ha - I'd like some of that!)
 then closing arguments and then the big vote, followed a by an hour of drinks
 with - this can't be right - with Bryant Gumble?

 I won't admit to watching it, I know who Rudy and naked Rich are,
 but when people talk about it I can't buy a clue. But Mrs. BartCop watches,
 and she's picking Rudy to walk away with the million dollars.

 I don't guess this will get Super Bowl ratings, but it gets 28,000,000 people now,
 (Regis only gets 21,000,000) and if anyone ever watched any episode,
 they'll be watching tonight, right?

 And don't we owe CBS for putting something on during the summer?
  (Yeah, like our eternal gratitude...)

 So if you watch it tonight, maybe something funny will happen and we can talk
 about it Thursday, but don't write afterwards and say, "I knew XXX was going to win..."

 Subject: Congratulations on Issue 250!!!

 Hi BartCop,

 My hat's off to you for reaching issue 250, one of the best issues yet.

 You really HAVE accomplished something pretty remarkable -- paid 250 issues
 worth of dues, which meant you've spent more time thinking about RL-LNW and
 Bartcop.com than Smirk has about where he spent 1971.

 ha ha

 I agree with the English guy who wrote you, as I've told you before. Your
 site has always been great and keeps getting better. I've so much enjoyed
 watching it evolve. It's the best site on the web. I'd rather do without
 West Wing or The Sopranos than do without bartcop. That even applies to
 The Simpsons (except the new episodes).. I don't think anyone else on earth
 has ever done what you've just done, or done anything so long, so well.
 You can bet I'll still be reading when you reach Issue 500.

 Anyway, consider this a one-man standing ovation for all the fun and
 delight you've given me, all 250 issues of it.

 Please - Never Quit!
