Here's an email response we got this week from Heather Wilson: No really this is IT...
Subject: A reply from Heather Wilson
Date: September 27, 2006 2:27:44 PM MDT
Member of Congress
Bob Woodward's book title,State of Denial, rings a bell for us here at Freshchaos.com...For several years, we had a running quote on our side-bar taken from the movie American Beauty: "Never underestimate the power of Denial." 'twas true then, apparently 'tis still true.
Quote of the week: Republican Mark Foley emails these lines to a 16 year old Congressional male page: Do I make you a little horny? You in your boxers too? Well, strip down and get naked." And we wonder why this week our nation suffered two school shootings? Is our whole country completely insane or is it just our nation's 'men in power'? Foley quit this week leaving his Congressional seat up for grabs (so to speak).
Believe it or don't:
_Karl Rove is in Albuquerque this weekend. No one seems to publically know where he will appear or who he is here to be representin'...Some would guess he is here for Ms. Heather 'W', but her camp says "It's not a Wilson event"...If he is here for the Balloon Fiesta he is a weekend early.
_Al Sharpton is also visiting the high desert this weekend but at least he knows where he is going [a luncheon benefit for the N.M. Black Political Action Committee].
_Wayne La Pierre [who?] is also in town. Wayners heads up the NRA and is attending a huge Police Shootout at the newly renovated [over a million bucks worth of demo/reno] Police Shooting Range on an Albuquerque mesa complete with rattlesnakes and prairie dogs [Duck and Cover, little dudes!] . Governor Bill [Is that a six gun in your pocket or are you just glad to see us?] Richardson will be there to shoot his big ones, too.
Congress OK's 1.2 billion downpayment for a U.S.-Mexico wall of shame and blame. How far will the 1.2 billion go? 14 miles of wall in Californ-I-A cost 126.5 million...so not too far nor wide.
Apparently the big ABRAMOFF BOMBSHELL that was coming out this week went to page six or seven or was covered in fish wrap. And Duh Pres sez:"Five years after 9/11, Dems offer nothing but criticism, and obstruction and endless second guessing...as the party of cut and run...".. Damn straight you 'gruesome boob' [thanks, Bill Maher, for that too kind terminology for the idiot non-savant in the ovary office].

Dan Neil of the L.A. Times has a very funny column called, "Just Say Maybe" . It is well worth a look see...Sez he: A recent review of the government's eight-year, 1.4 BILLION anti-marijuana adv. campaign noted that the ads INCREASED the likelihood of first-time drug use among teens...
Oliver Stone ASHAMED of USA. Bring on them thar Dixie Chicks.

The DAILY SHOW hosts President of Pakistan Gen. Pervez Musharraf this week and it was such a hit the interview made it onto CNN...They had tea and twinkies together.Way to go Jon Stewart! The next night Musharraf met with President Bush...
Things are just plain bad these days...All polls show war in Iraq is badddd...Two West Virginia miners commit suicide...Terrill Owens does NOT commit suicide...Rich-Poor gap way up...Rummie in trouble...Anna Nicole's son dies of Lexapro/Zoloft/methadone mix...Mona Lisa was preggers when posing...Chevy Chase will play an alcoholic who spews slurry epithets at a cop on tv's 'Law and Odor' but this episode is NOT about Mel (dry) Gibson on the rocks...AND THE STOCK MARKET SOARS , then not so much...Another week in paradise is closing in on itself.
THE BEST show on the tube right now (other than five zillion football games) is THE WIRE on HBO...Click to read an abbreviated online interview in Rollingstone Magazine with the creator of The Wire.
Bless me fathers...Priests steal 8.6 million!! YAY-zoo Christos.
In 2004, E.L. Doctorow wrote a piece he called, The Unfeeling President. Among other things, Doctorow states:
I fault this president for not knowing what death is...He hasn't the mind for it...He does not mourn. He doesn't understand why he should mourn. He does not feel a personal responsibility for the 1,000  dead young men and women who wanted to be what they could be. They come to his desk...as a political liability, which is why the press is not permitted to photograph the arrival of their coffins from Iraq.
How then can he mourn? To mourn is to express regret and he regrets nothing...He wanted to go to war and he did...This president and his supporters would seem to have a mind for only one thing -- to take power, to remain in power, and to use that power for the sake of themselves and their friends.
A war will do that as well as anything. You become a wartime leader. The country gets behind you. Dissent becomes inappropriate...The president we get is the country we get. With each president the nation is conformed spiritually. He is the artificer of our malleable national soul. He proposes not only the laws but the kinds of lawlessness that govern our lives and invoke our responses...The media amplify his character into our moral weather report. He becomes the face of our sky, the conditions that prevail. How can we sustain ourselves as the United States of America given the stupid and ineffective warmaking, the constitutionally insensitive lawgiving, and the monarchal economics of this president? He cannot mourn but is a figure of such moral vacancy as to make us mourn for ourselves.
This was 2004; has Bush changed for better or for worse or not at all?

My first vinyl album e-v-e-r- was Mr. Tambourine Man by the Byrds. I was able to interview them for my for my so groovy In the Groove , high school newspaper music column in 1969...I met then 'Jim' McGuinn, Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons (who had just graduated from our high school-and was our backstage ticket in). Now after many millenniums, a new box set is out (as of yesterday) that features the Byrds in all their twangy twelve-stringiness...Catch=> THE BYRDS: there is a Season .

Monday Night Chaos: BUSH is in New Orleans tonight for the Mini Super Bowl like orgasmic re-opening of the Super Dome. And that's REGGIE Bush not the 'heckofajob Bushmeister' as the New Orleans Saints march in to take on the spleen-busting Hotlanta Falcoons. See what 185 million dollars can do to a football stadium.
More moolah out the windows...Truth or Consequences is a town in southern New Mexico where today the first ever launch of the USA private sector's Space World efforts got off the ground but exploded. Ya got your truth and you got your consequences...
Hey, cool song Captain Green Day...
"Wake Me Up When September Ends"
Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when september ends
like my fathers come to pass
seven years has gone so fast
wake me up when september ends
Summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when september ends
ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when september ends
Here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are
as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when september ends
Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when september ends
like my father's come to pass
twenty years has gone so fast
wake me up when september ends

Tonight the new moon should become visible as a toenail in the early autumn sky. The planets have been active this past week . There is an emergence. A birth. Times can be tough at birth. Beware. Oogah boogah.
Uncle Bin Laden may be dead or alive. We just don't know...And to not know something makes us wary and discomforted. It makes us admit to a horribly refined weakness. We fear change and giving birth. But tonight, the new moon shall shine. Go Lobos.

TGIF...Another major week for chaos moves into the weekend...
Snewz for the Land of Enchantment...
=>New Mexico makes it into the coveted FBI stat list of the TOP FIVE states with the MOSTEST in Crime. Viva spot numero fivo right behind Maryland (4th), Floreedah (3rd), Tennessee (2nd), and South Carolina numero uno for the most crime in the U.S. of A.
=>SUNSET MAGAZINE'S #1 trail in N. America is right here in Albuquerque, New Mexico!!
=>Another coup for our state occured yesterday as we were chosen to be a spot (yet again) for the insane Topeka, Ks.God Hates Fags group to protest. Another They came from Kansas!Fresh Chaos episode. Those folks should just implode or head back to Oz.
=>New Mexico saw early snow in the Northern parts this week. North of us, Colorado saw even more snowage. El Nino is back. A wet and cold winter is ahead. Good snewz for skiers and snowshoe-ers.
=>Will anyone be shot at Las Cruces, New Mexico's Whole Enchilada Festival this weekend ? Somehwat like like the mayor of Amity [Jaws!], the mayor and public officials of Las Cruces are hoping the Extortion Letters, received one week ago today, are hoaxes. Today's festival may have 60-80,000 in attendance. News media frenzied sharks are standing by to catch falling citizens. If YOUR CITY IS IN DANGER, Will Robinson, today might be that day. It is THE DEADLINE given by the extortionists...Now let's eat some enchiladas...Viva La Fiesta!!
A historic amount of international dignitaries passed through New York City and the United Nations this week while the whole world went to pot and rusty spoons. There were RIOTS in Hungary, GENOCIDE in Darfur, THREATS against the Pope, and as always, plenty more TERROR in the Mideast. Did those meetings in the U.N. do anything? Lots of sulpur and Hot Air. Bill Clinton and Daniel Elsberg appeared on the Daily Show this week though; not a total loss for the week.
KINKY Friedman is beginning to piss off a bunch of people. Does this mean he is closer to a WIN in the State of Texas for Governor if that state? He has angered the Texas Black Caucus with 'racial slurs' the he says are in the vein of Richard Pryor. In some context, he called the NOLA folks crackheads and thugs. We still support 'K' as THE Freshest and most Chaotic candidate running in '06 anywhere for anything. If he even is a close second it truly signals change on a big level.

Unheard of Move-eye of the momento:
In this Sci-fi comedy, writer-director Mike Judge's ("Office Space") unique brand of humor examines an average guy who volunteers to be the subject of a hibernation experiment that goes awry. He wakes up 500 years in the future, discovering that he's the smartest guy on the planet. The move-eye is called IDIOCRACY...and it was released by Twentieth Century Fox suber-quietly on 9/1/06 with not even its own website. The cast includes: Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, David Herman, and Justin Long. The PROBLEM: terrible or NO reactions from audiences who saw the trailers and screen test shows. It did not go straight to DVD as more movies than you can shake a camera at do nowadays; but, it may as well have.
More Celebrity CHAOS:
LINDSAY LOHAN found her stolen Hermes bag...A Priest calls in a bomb threat from his home phone (a no-no for bomb threats!) to the theater where Madonna's concert show is showing a crucifiction scene...BRAD PITT won't marry until GAY marriages are made legal...Homophobes are scared that ELLEN de Generis has been named to host the Academy Awards this mid-winter...ROCKY BALBOA'S statue is returning to the steps of the Philadelphia's Art Museum [ This JUSTin: A big ass downtown PHILLY FIRE has caused 25 blocks to be shut down...]

Hugo Chavez slams G.W. Bush at the U.N. Chavez states:"The devil came here yesterday...He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world." It was the first time a U.S. President has ever been 'attacked' on the floor of the United Nations. Soviet Premier Nikita Krushchev threatened the West in 1960, but he didn't personally attack President Eishenhower at the time. Venezuela is the United States' third-largest source of imported oil. Go to: Full Story.
Quote of the moment: "I'll go to my grave never having seen The Daily Show...[Jon Stewart] is a self-righteous comedian taking on airs of grandeur." Robert Novak
The Extortion Letter Story is unfolding rapidly in our state's secoind largest city of Las Cruces. Now the EXTORTION DEADLINE is revealed as being this coming FRIDAY 9/22 in the latest snewz of DOMESTIC TERRORISM.
The contents of the letter have also been revealed through media outlets. The final line is shown below in its oddly-written handwriting...
The whole text of the letter as written to the Editor of the Las Cruces Sun follows:
We arrived in your city [blacked out by police]. We explained to mayor/manager mayor and police about our purpose in your city...We basically came or were told to come and obtain (redacted) in cash. (Redacted section.) If they did not meet our deadline with the $ reesidents of your city would be randomly selected and shot...
Maybe you already know what you have read so far— if not ask your city leaders. We just thought you would like to know why bodies will be falling if demands are not met (redacted). City leaders have all the details [blacked out by police] and other details. $ delivered and we leave peacefully...For the past [blacked out by police] we have been paid by others to find a designated target and stop it from existing— now we are looking for payment to let the targets exist [blacked out by police].
Your city is in danger.
Pretty chilling stuff...Has our war on terrorism helped in situations like this? Who are these people that were 'sent' to this southern New Mexico city? The Mexican Mafia? We shall see...

Monday Night Chaos: My home town of Jacksonville, Florida looked 'better than good' tonight on ESPN. Seeing the St. John's River on national teevee brings it home for me; seeing them people drinkin' beer and SWEATIN', brought me to appreciate our humidity free night here in the High Desert.
But HEYSUS and Oh Lordie Land-o-Goshens...the freakin' JAX JAGS ROCKED Monday Night Football beating last season's Soup Bowl Champeens 9-zippo, Harpo.
Byron Leftwich strikes me as a good man. At the helm of the Jaguars, he has been much maligned and/or ignored by the sporting press. Ben Rothlisberger was lucky to have gotten through the night with only one HUGE grimace when he was tackled near his exploding appendix. A question early on was literally "Will Ben Rothlisberger's BOWEL SHUTDOWN?" I hope it didn't but the Jaguars shut down all the Steelers offense. ZERO to ZIPPO at halftime and through part of the third quarter. Hysterically historic.
Jacksonville: "...a largely unknown team, a largely unknown coach, and a largely unknown town..." That line from an announcer, may've caused some Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce members to cringe but after tonight's game, the JAX JAGS ROCK!
Next Monday night, the 185 million dollar renovations at the SUPER DOME in NOLA will be unveiled...Tonight though, it was what was once called, THE BOLD NEW CITY OF THE SOUTH, Jacksonville, Florida's time to shine with their Jaguars...
Fresh chaos, JUSTin:
_Willie Nelson BUSTED !!
_Three Texas National Guard soldiers accused of opening fire in a quiet neighborhood say boredom led to a joy ride with two cases of beer and a loaded 9 mm pistol. That's not your Daddy's Border Patrol .
_A farm in Janesville, Wisconsin has now given birth to the nation's third white buffalo calf. All three have come from this same farm. American Indians say that the birth of such an animal is a sign that all the races of the world will be reunited and that the world's balance will be restored. The calf's coat will change from white to black then to red and yellow before turing brown again; thus, symbolizing the union of the races...
=>Read about the first sacred White Buffalo Calf named Miracle [Born August 20, 1994-Died September 19, 2004 at The Heider Farm in Janesville, Wisconsin.]
=>Read about the THIRD calf born August 25, 2006 whose name is Miracle's Second Chance.
=>Read more about White Buffalo Calf Woman .
_Look at this chaos; or don't. It's all about the Devil and Daniel Johnston. Astonishing; or, not so much?
_President Bush is preparing a U-turn on global warming ...! We are really doomed now. Everything he touches turns to composted cereal for cows, pigs, and rodentia. Not to mention worms.
_The West is Doomed says Al Katydid.
_All the rain our high desert country of Nuevo Mexico got this summer, made July and August the 'wettest' in 112 years! It is now the most allergy-inspiring-est.
_From UNM's Daily Lobo came this police blotter...Fed-Ex delivered a package addressed to a dorm resident...it smelled like marijuana...The woman to whom the package was addressed was arrested. Doesn't everyone know you should pour 'Old Spice' aftershave all over packages like that before sending them off?
_And in case you were wondering, here's how LAURA BUSH's day looks for this coming Wednesday 9/20/06:=>
Press Schedule of First Lady Laura Bush for Wednesday, September 20, 2006...10:00 a.m.: MRS. BUSH delivers remarks at the Clinton Global Initiative. [The Sheraton New York Hotel; Seventh Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Streets; New York, New York]... OPEN PRESS (Media entrance on 52nd Streetside) Throw: 50 feet; TV Lighting; Mult box... NOTE:Those members of the media interested in attending the event must contact Jen Farley at +1 -917 -209 -7164 and provide a JPEG photo, his or her name (as it appears on driver's license,) Social Security number, date of birth, and news outlet. Additional logistical questions may be directed to the Clinton Foundation Press Office at 212-348-0360, or White House Press Office, 202-456-2580.

Las Cruces, N.M. story goes Nationwide .
Friday, September 15, 2006
That's what some are calling the 'situation' this evening in Las Cruces, New Mexico, our state's second largest city (pop. 175,000). "YOUR CITY IS IN DANGER," said a portion of a letter which was delivered Friday to city officials as well as to the city newspaper, the Las Cruces Sun-News .

On this day two years ago, a phone call came alerting us to the fact that a close family member had apparently committed suicide. So many waves of water have passed under our bridges here at FreshchaosHQ in these passing two years. Hopefully, there are many tides to come in and go out, for all of us left here on our merry little blue spinning planet.

_Bill Maher has a new dating sevice for Republican stiffs called NEO-CONNECTIONS.
_Last week a gusher of an oil field was discovered in N. America's Gulf of Mexico.This week the largest recorded EARTHQUAKE took place in that exact same area (6.0 only 260 miles SW of Tampa, Florida)...Any Neo-Connections there? Conspiracy? Atomic drilling bits?
_Texas Wild Man , Kinky Friedman, now wants to send 10,000 National Guard troops to the border of Texas and Mexcio. Maybe we should send 10,000 troops to the border of New Mexico and Texas!!
_What I did for summer vacation: I attended a KKK Rally at Gettysburg!! There were over thirty robed dudes (or dudettes) proclaiming their hatred for Jews, Blacks, Gays, and Latinos at the Civil War battlefield where Uncle Abe delivered his famoose address. It was a fun for all, family fuzzies sort of summer for me, capped off by this warm firelit experience.

Five Years (David Bowie)
Pushing through the market square, so many mothers sighing.
News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in.
News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying.
Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying.
I heard telephones, opera house, melodies;
I saw boys, toys, electric irons and TV's...
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare.
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there.
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people.
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people.
I never thought I'd need so many people.
A girl my age went off her head, hit some tiny children.
If the black hadn't pulled her off, I think she would have killed them.
A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac.
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, and a queer threw up at the sight of that.
I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, drinking milk shakes cold and long.
Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think you knew you were in this song?
And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor.
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there.
Your face, your race, the way that you talk.
I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk.
We got five years, stuck on my eyes.
Five years, what a surprise.
We got five years, my brain hurts a lot.
Five years, that's all we got.
Five years, five years, five years, five years...

Not intentionally trying ot be vulgar or impolite to the folks at bouncingyellowballs.com but tonight I realized that Tee Vee Women's tennis is an ass collage.
Bill shoots, he scores: Sudan frees writer after visit from NM Gov. Bill Richardson. Boom!!
If you have On Demand (Comblast Cable) you've already seen The Wire on Hblow. Others of us will see the season's opener this Sunday night. Apparently one of the new 'scenes' is a Baltimore Middle School...JUSTin: Now focusing on four besieged Baltimore middle schoolers, the fourth season of “The Wire” is literary television that broadens the mind and blows the heart open. It's about time that MIDDLE school gets its due.

Clinton blasts ABC ...
There is in every true woman's heart a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity; but which kindles up, and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.-- Washington Irving
=>Our state's STATE FAIR opens today in Albuquerque and the weather looks like the Pacific Northwest. Never fails to rain during state fair time. Also never fails to wash liquid whenever the teevee goes national with our Balloon Fiesta (the first two weekends of Roctoberfest). EL NINO is predicted here for winter, promising skiers a respite form droughty mountainsides. The more moisture the better. Buy your energy stocks now cuz winter should be a good 'un nationwide.
=>We are having a little problem with church goers parking in front of our gate at our AirDance ArtSpace. I created some politically correct signage urging our brethren neighbors to find a better choice for parking, but here's what I would really like to post on the gate fencing: WHERE WOULD JESUS PARK? NOT HERE, you Mo-Fo's!!
=>Paris Hilton update: as heard on a talk show... I was just really hungry, because I had not ATE [lurn to gammar-itize] all day, and I wanted to have an In-N-Out burger [no, really]... blah... really fast... Mercedes... blah.
=>BUBBA is DEAD. 124 lb. Super Grouper Bubba died last week at Chi-town's Shedd Aquarium. In 2002 he was the first fish e-v-e-r to receive chemotherapy for (apparently) fish cancer.
=>VALERIE PLAME coming to 'Burqueville next week. Tix available and more info at: Military Religious Freedom dot orgasm. Nice of the dude who outed her to finally speak up this week at his counsel's suggestion.
=>GOP in Bernalillo County is suing County Clerk, stating that the Early Voting polls now open are "in Democratic areas" - like Downtown at the Clerks's Office. WHERE WOULD JESUS LIVE? And what neighborhoods allow only Republicans? Get a GRIP or are you losing faith in the voters to buy the party line? Is this an early white flag for the Republican faithful? Or just plain STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES?
=>A recent Albuquerque Journal poll of our local but "nationally watched" race for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District delivers this innerestin' result: Democrat Patricia Madrid is running a close race against incumbent Rep. Heather Wilson with Wilson, a Republican seeking her fifth full term, having the support of 45 percent of those polled and Madrid, the second-term state attorney general, having 42 percent. Wilson, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, is a longtime backer of the U.S. military involvement in Iraq while Madrid is calling for a quick-turnaround exit plan.
=>Our Gov. Bill Richardson is passing up the Zozobra burning man Santa Fe Fiestas to try and set free the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning New Mexico resident, Paul Salopek, who is currently jailed in Sudan as a "spy". Could be a nice coup both for Salopek and for Uncle Bill's presidential bidding. Or Sudanese president Lt. Gen. Umar Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir could just off the guy and we all lose.
_Bob Dylan's latest MODERN TIMES cd/lp is NUMERO UNO on the charts. Way to go, Uncle Bobbie.
_Last chance for NASA shuttle launch is today...It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know about the hurricane season on the east coast of FloriDUH. Talk about your scheduling snafu's.
_MERMAID BABY has legs unstrung...
=>DRUG USE...Kidz are using fewer illegal drugs but a spike in use has been seen among older adults, perhaps because a few aging baby boomers have clung to their rebellious ways, according a U.S. substance abuse report. THOSE BASTARDS.

Paris H. joins Mel G. in the caught chaotically driving whilst under dee influence category of GAPES...Paris Hiltonia got put in jail (ooh not so cool) for a DUI early this a.m. So many paparazzi descended on the scene they were afraid the flashbulbs would blind drivers and create a traffic accident...
In other Paris snewz...the owner of CLUB PARIS in Jacksonville, Florida also is arrested this week...Go FULL MOON CHAOS.

FRESHCHAOS.com is compiled from many piles...magazine clips, emails sent in by readers, morning paper musings. Often the chaos piles up and we create a...Potpourri:
=>An Albuquerque soldier who is a Jew, has sued the United States Air Force Academy regarding the 'Christian evangelization' which he experienced at the Academy. He now objects to the use of the CRUSADER emblem for the 523rd Fighter Squadron at New Mexico's Cannon Air Force Base. What's wrong with a bunch of crusaders raining missiles and bombs down on a bunch of Islamic fundamentalists you might ask? Or what's wrong (really) with having a super duper Christee-anne President who speaks to God about war and lack of sex from his oval office lavatory throne on a weekly (daily?) basis? Personally, my favorite Cannon Unit is the FIGHTIN' FIREBALLS. I have a dandy tee shirt of theirs complete with a sexy babe and a fireball that I got at Albuquerque's Thrifttown for 89 cents. Bring Peace Home.
=>Martin Sheen is now a college student in Galway, Ireland. Bravo. Top 'o the mornin' to ye. Wouldn't it be lovely for us all to go back to four years of college on an idylic mountain top? Maybe we would be encouraged then to end the madness of our current world and not be so dependent on (insert conveniences, IRA's,SUV's, etc.)
=>4,000 protesters protested W's recent 'rally for the insanity' in conservative Utah. Bush says that Iraq War II which he himself now terms World War III, is 'the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century'. When we awaited this glorious new millennium while storing Y2K provisions, did we expect any of this mired and abysmal swamp of anger, sorrow and economic failure flooded with the waters of mother ocean? Bring Peace Home.
=>How do I convince myself that I am alive?...I have become an expert at suffering...I recently was described as a PROFESSIONAL SUFFERER. This was a keen insight...I accept that most of my life has taught me to do well under crappy conditions. I am very good at being a Professional Sufferer. Can I be truly alive in a state of bliss and joy (wha tha fa is bliss-N-joy?) ? How about you?
=>FOOTBALL..duh. In case you didn't notice, the USA is more in love with football this year than ever before. Is this due to being broke and at war? No gasoline so stay home and watch MORE TEEVEE (nationwide tv watched per day is now over 8 hours and that's just the household 'average' time we watch)...For the pigskinners, now we have Monday Night, Sunday Night and Saturday Night Football as well as the usual day-long Sunday afternoon fest. Tonight' full moon matchup with the Steelers and Dolphinos makes it all REAL for the start of the NFL season.
-->In local snewz, our UNM Lobos lost to a lesser ranked team in their home opener last weekend. The Portland State Vikings (who are not a "1 A" team) beat the Lobotomies badly. No, the Loblows REALLY LOST. They sucked; they blew. To read about the game in local papers, heck dudes, they might as well call it quits right out the gate. One writer called the Blowjos ASTONISHINGLY INEPT! We miss DonTrell Moore and Hank Bassett. The Howling Blowholes scored only two field goals. Albuquerque recently made #21 on Forbes Magazine's "best places to find a job". Calling all football coaches.
-->Calling all FAGGS...TONY FAGG is an amazing wide receiver for Florida State University. This guy with a name that kicks ass, helped the Noles win their opener. With a name like that , ahh...you better be fantastic.
=>In what is older and wiser and much smaller than The Burning Man Festival, Santa Fe tonight burns OLD MAN GLOOM in their fall Fiestas Celebration. InONLY IN NEW MEXICO ironic style, last week the president of the Fiesta Council was arrested and jailed on DWI charges with a blood alcohol level of .11 per cent (.08 is our state's totally outof control freakin' drunk limit...) Nevertheless, the Fiestas will go on...and a big paper mache old man burning, seems fit for tonight's FULL MOON with an eclipse and uranus too.

=>President Bush appears to be losing support among a key group of voters who had hitherto stood firmly with the president even as his poll numbers among other groups fell dramatically. A new Gallup poll shows that, for the first time, Bush's approval rating has fallen below 50% among total fucking morons, and now stands at 44%.

Will the End of Oil=the End Of Food?

=>LUNAR FLASH: As planned, Europe's SMART-1 spacecraft crashed into the Moon yestiddy. The resulting flash was too faint for most backyard telescopes, but a team of astronomers using the big 3.6m CFHT telescope in Hawaii did manage to photograph the explosion.

=>"One hundred years ago Mohandas Gandhi began the movement that would transform him into a Great Soul-the Mahatma. He had been living in South Africa for 13 years when the government proposed a law that would effectively reduce Indians to criminal status. On September 11th, 1906 he convened a meeting at the Empire Theatre in Johannesburg to mobilize his community to oppose the racially degrading legislation. That September 11th, more than 3000 people solemnly pledged to disobey the proposed law, without the use of violence, despite the consequences. With that pledge, Gandhi began the nonviolent revolution that would defeat an empire and give birth to the world's largest democracy."--
