I Want Candy...
Happy Halloween everybody!
a bloody rat? that's nothing- look what Phoebe brought in! She assured me - it was a very slow death!
I'd like to find out how many Floridians- being kept alive artificailly- have voted in recent elections.
Thanks for the text preference advice, Brook; it did the trick!
Top o the news yesterday was that Bush was heckled and protested in Australia -- as if the Aussies have a special distaste for Bush not shared by the rest of the world.
my dogs are sooooooo thoughtful! look what they brought me!
Actually I am for assisted suicide, just not starvation. Bust a cap in her ass, give her the blue juice, behead her or whatnot. Just dont let her starve.
as part of my housecleaning, i updated our template and lost our links. i'll try to get them back asap.
Probably not the best case to discuss dignity and dying, it just does not fit too neatly in that package; I suspect that Bush acted due to pressure from within his own party's right wing not so much from his own desires. He could have just issued and executive order to replace the feeding tube and it would have been just as constitutional as an ex post facto law passed by the legeslature,,, Instead he passed the buck (wisely I think) to the fairly left leaning legeslature on the assumption that they would not do anything about it. Opps, they called his bluff and dumped this mess back on him. So while I think a robust disscussion is needed on the right to die, this case has too many side issues to ever get it pidgeon holed into a black and white question. I suspect that every politician in Flordia would have loved to had this one come down anywhere else....
Man, I'm sooooooo sorry for not tending bloggy over the summer. I was doped up on morphine for most of it, so maybe it's better I didn't tinker with it. I had my laptop with me in the hospital, but mostly what I used it for was to watch Zoolander over and over and over. That Hansel is so hot right now.
Geez Brook.... I don't think Jeb ordered Terri be kept alive at any cost. As far as I can tell, all he wanted was the feeding tube be put back in. I don't have a problem with the right to die with dignity, but dehydration and starvation ain't how anyone ought to die.
apropos to nothing... i've been thinking about this all day and i'm so confused...
Standin' in a field
Ya know, in addition to Roland, we have Jeff and Ben Blevins (of Lighting Charlie) to thank for the lyrics to "Cows on Parade", just thought I'd mention that...
yep his dad's name is Raymond, and his mom is Peggy, with Matthew the little brother and Diana the little sis (and Rhonda the Welsh Corgi); they might all be staying with Jeff's grandmother (dunno her name)
Hey I know this one,,, Randall is living in the Tri-Cities, should be in the phone book, he works as a medical sales rep., selling I believe prosthetic devices,,,, I may be wrong on that. Also another clue in the "Find Jeff Campbell" saga,, I think his fathers name was Raymond, am I right on that Roland?
Well, it's narrowed down to Chattanooga...thanks Roland.
hey Bill and Nicky
I ran into Sheri (pronounced Leonard Skinerd,,, oops, I mean Share-ree) about 2 years ago in J.C., she was married and working at Shoneys at the time, but I have not seen her since, I imagine she is still around North JC. Their other friend Ruth still lives on the family farm with her hubby and a couple of kids, she is teaching in Sullivan Co. and would probably know the whereabouts of both Sheri and Anne....
Damn...a truck driver...I'll just bet he's got some great stories to tell!
The last I heard of Jeff, he was a long haul trucker. Really,,, no shit! Jeff has always been one of my favorite people and a forgotten hero in the early JC scene. Little known fact; he was one of 4 bass players that Final Curtain had in its history, but it should be noted that when Bruce first suggested starting a band, it was Jeff that volunteered before anyone else that night at QB's. Mind you starting a punk band in JC during 1984 was a risky enough proposition, and at one of our shows we had a black guy demand that we play Lynrd Skynrd,,,, strange and violent night, but I digress,,,, anyway, I heard that Jeff was a trucker from a client as he was being sent to jail for raping his best friend's wife, so that info might be suspect.
Oh, please tell me about the many-toed band!
Or perhaps Roland, we could use the blog to publish the Final Curtain Fun Facts List; Remember? About how we all had an uncle named Steve, and how unlike another JC band none of us had more than 5 toes on either foot?
True, in fact as I recall that was once a very entertaining hobby of ours! Just a bunch of lunatic fringe moderates, hey, send me your new email address soon, hope school is going well for ya!
Any extras on that DVD Roland? lost footage? bloopers? Damn I have not thought about that movie in years... when I worked for probation and parole myself and a coconspirator once had a showing of it during lunch in the training room using the VCR the state had gotten us to watch training videos (they ran out of money though and never bought any training videos, to the best of my knowledge Redneck Zombies was the only movie ever watched on it!) By the way, are "Surf Nazis Must Die", "Sorority Babes in Slimeball Bowlarama" or "Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers" out on DVD yet?
Well Roland, I was hopeing to read more Haiku, but apparently the poetry contest is at an end..., once again you have added to your already impressive resume...."Warrior, Kung Fu Librarian, Porn Visionary," and now, "Poet." Truly you are a man for all seasons!
"Even though I'm a tranquil guy now at this stage of my life, I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors."
Ah, Bill has broken the silence...
