1) Local News

Kings Lose!

Election was Tuesday

           Prince and Keenan Ivory Wayan are black men who just turned 54.

           Ignorance IS bliss, but it also leads to hard work.

          LA is not yet a theater town. Damn!

          Pirates gaining ground in German politics.

          Mexican politics.

          Canadian politics.

          Fontana Steel is hiring! But you're gonna need your math chops!

          San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant News

2) Other News 
Death, poverty, war, rumors of wars, chaos, misery...

3) Local Loco.
Give your community a hug and a kiss. If we make our homes places of 
peace, love and creation, all of this political bullshit will be much more manageable, 
really. You can start with something as simple as opening your blinds. And if your 
neighbors are all assholes, congratulations! They probably feel the same thing. That is 
a great place to start.

4) No mas muertes, please!

Military suicides. They are our guys and our girls. They are products of an over- militarized culture, "fresh" from our victory in the largest war in the history of the planet. Lots
of people still walking around and voting and waving flags and that is all good. I am
NOT anti-military. Far from it. What I am is anti-death.

And our soldiers are getting out of West Asia, coming home and killing themselves

It is too late for you. Now you can't say you didn't know. So if you live, work, play, walk, run, bike, drive, vote, buy, sell, or ANYTHING in this country, you and I have a great debt to
pay to the soldiers, past and present. I don't know what to do. Help me out. My first
idea is just to walk into the VA in WLA and shake some hands and pass around some
cards. Do some free tutoring. Maybe it can help us both. I sure could use the work.

Questions can be placed here or emailed to

Thanks for listening and reading. Follow these here links if you want to follow up on anything you read or hear here, hear?

We didn't pay anyone to play the opening music from Cake (Wheels off of Pressure Chief). Or the close tune, either, for that matter (Mr. Scruff playing Hot Tuna, I think). Our bad. Of course, nobody paid us either, so...?

Yes Men
