1) Local News

           It is Flag Day today.

           If you don't feel like waving your flag today, may I suggest trying an 
          alternative country?

           Fucked up, flawed and problematic though it is, this is your chosen land. 
          And tired and struggling though you may be, this is still a beautiful life. The
          opportunities available in this country in this time are very hard to beat in
          the known universe. So show your colors, hug yourself, and then get the fuck
          back to work.

          In other local news, millions and millions of people are working their asses off
          in cooperative co-dependence to keep our little social experimental system 
          alive. Pat yourself on the back for doing your part. 

          ...and if you don't like your part, fucking change it! You will be dead very soon, and 
          there is a good chance that there is a closed wait list for heaven. Get to it. 

2)  Other News

           Sleeping, apathetic, angry, ignorant people multiplying rapidly
, women raped and 
           harassed to suicide, children convinced it is all over for them, suffering, sadness, 
           stupidity, and silly greed driving it all...

2a) Boycott List :  Monsanto, Cold Play, Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Charlie Sheen

3)  Local Loco


4)       Calendar

                 Saturday mornings on the radio with Uncle Ruthie.

                 Oh, and if you weren't downtown at 5th and Spring last night, you missed The 
                 Downtown LA ArtWalk for the umpteenth time. 2nd Thursday in July is next. Are you 
                 feeling me, Gabby?

                 Always bad parking and good music at McCabes in Santa Monica.

No money was paid to anyone for anything here, so look somewhere else!

"The Journey," by Douglas Whiting can be read with great love and respect and hope for your enjoyment. This time with complete endorsement, authorization, and  permission from the author.

We did not pay anyone for use of the opening music from Cake ("Wheels," off of "Pressure Chief") or the close music either:
 Spin Doctors "More Than She Knows," too. Mr. Scruff is still waiting for his check, too. The close music is his song "Kalimba." We will share when there is something to share.
