Patriotic veteran outraged by president, attorney general
For citizens of our nation, unacceptable changes have taken place in the way
of life that everyone expected. Recent events have changed our freedom of choice,
freedom of association, and freedoms of thought and speech.
A candidate who didn't receive the majority
of the popular vote in was subsequently
appointed to the presidency by the Supreme Court, thereby becoming our illegitimate president.
The choice of the voters of our country was taken away by a partisan court in conjunction
with voter fraud and ballot counting. This was only the beginning.
can only hope that I am a crackpot

So when a friend of mine phoned me at a Motel 6 in Idaho early on September 11 to ask if I had heard about the
two planes hitting the WTC, I told him "I am not surprised" (my exact words) and I told him a few of the items
from the above list of 5 events. Then, as I was pulling into a car wash about 15 minutes later the lady working there
asked me if I had heard the news. I told her "It is because of what Bush is doing to our country."
She, of course, thought I was a crackpot. I can only HOPE that I am a crackpot.

Tonight's 'Wild Off'

the snappiest opening java thing.
I no longer think that.

But the current champ has to be BrookeBurke.com
Brooke in a bikini in Vegas is tough to beat!
if you wanna see how every broad's web site outta look.
(Doing that Ackroyd character who talked about "Titian" on SNL.)
Seriously, it's done very well, and in very good taste.
So, they're going to "find a replacement" for Brooke Burke?
Sure they are.
And as soon as they're finished, ...they're going to find a replacement for
Elvis, Bill Clinton, Krispy Kreme, WC Fields, Coke, Apple Pie and Jimi Hendrix.

I know Larry will be watching...
Guess who's got a new web page?
Hey, Henry - who's your girlfriend?
Wait, I'll bet Henry is a "Christian" so that means he's "forgiven." right?

Random Las Vegas story
In 1983, we took our first big trip. We drove our new Grand Prix
to Texas, New Mexico, Colorado,
Utah, Nevada, LA, (where we saw Richard Pryor) San Fransisco, then back to LA, then Arizona,
New Mexico, Texas and then back home. It was a busy weekend.
As we left Grand Junction, Colorado and headed southwest, we were
amazed at seeing the mountains
of red rocks for hundreds of miles. We drove and drove. As we closed in on the Nevada border, we stopped
at Bryce Canyon and were blown away by its beauty and the cold winds. It was starting to get dark and we
still had 4 hours to our next stop, which was Vegas.
About a hundred miles from Las Vegas, we saw a giant pink cloud
in the sky, far away. Since it was very dark,
I composed a list of possible explanations for the giant pink cloud in the sky. Ruling out nighttime nuclear testing,
(but we were in the right place for it, if that's what it turned out to be...) I finally deduced that the giant pink cloud
could only be Las Vegas in the cold, dead desert. We continued to drive and drive. Las Vegas 80 miles,
Las Vegas 60 miles, Las Vegas 40 miles, Las Vegas is only 20 miles away.
Finally, we topped the last mountain and it was the most amazing
thing I'd ever seen:
The entire valley came into view, and the dark desert night suddenly had a billion lights.
In the center of the billion lights, a little to the left, there was a higher concentration of lights.
I saw The Strip at night - for the first time.

DNA tests free man for rape, murder after 17 years

Whenever a story like this comes out, the Bush people (and others

I watched my tape of ESPN's

"I am familiar with the arguments against taking
action in the case of Saddam Hussein.
Some concede that Saddam is evil, power hungry and a menace, but that until he crosses
the threshold of actually possessing nuclear weapons we should rule out any preemptive action.
That logic seems to me to be deeply flawed. The argument comes down to this: 'Yes, Saddam is
as dangerous as we say he is, we just need to let him get stronger before we do anything about it,"'

Reflections on Orwell and the Stockton Protest
by Dwayne Eutsey
In Orwell’s book, if anyone questioned Napoleon, the lead pig on the farm, “the sheep were sure to silence him
with a tremendous bleating of 'Four legs good, two legs bad!’” The bleating would continue until all questions
were forgotten or dissenters were too intimidated to raise them again. Similarly, the citizens in the auditorium
who dared question the sanity of AWOL Bush’s disastrous plans to invade Iraq were drowned out by the
GOP sheep obediently bleating “USA! USA! USA!”
We haven't done one of these in a while.
As you know, I'm at a disadvantage in that I never see any audience reaction.

Subject: State of the nation
As the anniversary of 9-11 approaches, Americans
and ditto-heads alike are converging
to reflect upon the tragedy and its consequences. So let's review the state of the nation:
Bin Laden is still at large
The anthrax killer is also still at large
Halliburton and Carlyle are still making money from war
Saudi Arabia is still an evil influence
Ashcroft is still shredding the constitution
Bush the lesser is still an idiot
The Clintons are still being slandered
Gore is still being demonized
The economy is still going south
The religious right are still insane
Cancer and AIDS patients are still being criminalized
Corporate criminals are still getting off
Health insurance is still grossly expensive
Drug companies are still raping the elderly and disabled
Star Wars is still a Bad Idea
Mother Nature is still NOT HAPPY
Right wing shills still claim to be patriots
Mass media is still supine
Everything has changed, right?
BartFest2002 - Party at the Rio
Make your own hotel reservations.
BartFest tickets will be available until the night of the party.
Update - Vegas Fever is getting hotter every day.
I had an idea: This isn't an offer or a proposal,
this is an idea.
One of the best visuals you'll ever have is your first trip down The Strip at night. I know a lot of you
will be in town a day early, so what we could do is meet, say at the Hard Rock Friday night, just before
sunset and enjoy a meal, a shot of fine tequila or a few cocktails. Then, when it's good & dark, we all pile
into a van or a bus (we're checking prices) and have Cubby show us The Strip and downtown.
I think even the non-drinkers would would get a big kick out of
You could play the slots or get a bite to eat and join us at busloading time.
One thing to keep in mind, especially if you're just there for
the weekend, is time management.
You should make a list of what you MUST see, because you'd hate to miss a lot because you got
distracted and let time get away from you. I would think your MUST-sees would include The Venetian,
The Bellagio, New York, New York, Mandalay Bay and maybe Paris.
Figure on seeing the interiors during the day, the nights will take care of themselves.
So this is a possible for Friday night. Other possibles
include a trip to
Area 51, but it's 2 hours each way,
so that'll eat into an evening. I recommend getting there just before dark, because they don't have signs or anything.
(Reminder: It's legal to go up to the sign, just don't go past it.)
You'll need the light to find the secret dirt road. Once you're there, you wait for it to get completely dark.
After you see the flying saucers, it's another 2 hours back, but the good news is, Las Vegas never sleeps.
But Bart, what if you have car trouble in the desert?
Whatever vehicle you take into the desert, they can tow.
