1) Local News

* 22 DAYS TO BURNING MAN! And if you are going to miss it, like I am, all hope is not lost. Burning Man Project thrusts forward the spirit of Burners and Non, with its mission to "...not have to go out to the desert to have that opportunity for self-expression and creativity." Beyond the Playa, Aug 10, 2011. Mayor Ed Lee as well as one of his opponents for the Mayor's seat are teaming up with founding forces and the Black Rock City, LLC to dress up Market Street and much more. "We don't want to merely decorate the city's main street...We want to change lives," said super-founder Larry Harvey.

*Outside Lands this weekend! Bundle up.

* So you think I can dance? Nah, and viewership for the Fox finale is down 9% to show again, that ANYTHING I like is unpopular, generally. Good, right?

* Eco-Sexy. 7 pm tonight at The Lab.

* Hetch-Hetchy not to be restored anytime soon, but not because Mike Marshall isn't working at it 24/7.

* Local High School Newspaper is boring, even to it's editor.

* As per usual, an ungodly amount of ungodly stuff to do this week here in The City. Some cheap stuff here.

2) Other News
     War, chaos, misery, disaster, radiation, eco-war, eco-chaos, eco-misery, et al...

3) Local Loco : Read your local paper, even if it is a school publication that bores the hell out of you. And sing a little, too. Write a Letter to the Editor, or to one of the advertisers. Thank them for a good ad or voice your concern about a dangerous product or service. Step out of line a little. Work now or pay a LOT more later, when some Murdoch clone owns all the local press. See Meet Joe Black for more. Just because News Of The World is gone, don't think that we can let well enough alone.

4) Feature: "Empty Space"

5) Lit Minit : "Ambulances," by Philip Larkin, from Collected Poems.

TYSM for reading and listening. I hope you had fun. Now, GBTW!

...but if you DO have time right now, you can get more fun here by following these links:

"Ambulances," was read - rather quickly, sorry --with great love and respect but without any authorization or permission from the author, their heirs or publishers.

Also used, but without permission, the intro music is "Wheels," by CAKE off of their album "Pressure Chief."
