Waiting and Waiting A Doctor's Complaint to the Academy
(Mar. 2, 1999) I don't know why it should bother me so much, but, dangit, it does.
Late last year, as I've been doing for years now, I wrote in and requested credentials from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to cover the ceremonies for the bestowing of Golden Boys to the deserving few. I filled out my forms, pressing hard so as to make the carbonless copies for Who Knows Who. I even used a ballpoint pen and printed neatly (not easy for a medical professional.) I folded them the right way, I mailed them back a week before the deadline, and I put three stamps on them so there'd be no way there wasn't enough postage on them, no matter how much the stamp price jumped.
And, here I sit. Waiting.
Martha Nell brings in the mail every morning. Boring medical journals, new magazines for the waiting room (yes, I provide new magazines. How they disappear and get replaced by seven-year old Good Housekeepings are anybody's guess), bills, junk. But, nothing from the Academy. I hurry home every day and check the mail. Nada. Ed McMahon's trying to give me a fortune; my

A wealthy Nashville businessman in affiliation with the Professional Rodeo Cowboy's Association (PRCA) and Jack Daniel Distillery is finalizing a deal to build a world class rodeo arena and rodeo/cowboy destination attraction in downtown Knoxville.
A large tract of land on Riverside drive near the Dempster's Machine Shop will be the site of the $43 Million attraction. It will feature the largest rodeo arena east of the Rockies, designed to accommodate major rodeo events with seating for 25,000 rodeo fans. It will be a scheduled stop for the worlds biggest rodeo events such as the Wrangler Pro Rodeo Tour, the Dodge National Circuit Rodeo.
In addition, it will be a year-round destination attraction featuring the ProRodeo Hall of Fame East, a rodeo/cowboy museum and hall of fame where fans can learn about the history of rodeo through exhibits and lectures and meet their favorite rodeo cowboys during events. The ProRodeo Hall of Fame East will an extension of the main ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado, and will share moving exhibits and speakers. Additional plans call for a pedestrian walkway linking the attraction to the new Downtown Marriot (formerly Hyatt) and Riverwalk.

Westhill Partners, hired by former Pacifica management to handle the crisis, put out this intercepted fax in July, 2001, with classic PR advice to smear those as violent and radical who most challenged their client's control. download PDF (279.0 kibibytes) Note the name of James Ratchford, a subordinate to Westhill Partners lead Washington, DC flack Michael Powell (not the FCC Powell). Ratchford had worked for the National Hotdog and Sausage Council and the American Meat Institute prior to signing on to Westhill. Those in the Pacifica struggle should review the language put forth in Westhill's failed campaign, in light of ongoing attempts by retired admen and their flunkies around Pacifica stations who attempt to defame the Pacifica Campaign with similar lies, as they produce their revisionist history to support their second-wave hijacking. add your comments

How Will We Know If We Won? Iraq: Deterrence or Prevention? How sad but almost funny to watch people take positions about the need to attack Iraq. CNN, for instance, took their editorial position on Sunday. President Bush has not made his case for attacking Iraq, they said. Such an attack would not be necessary, because what harm would it do for Iraq to have nuclear weapons? Didn't Russia have nuclear weapons for fifty years of the cold war? Our nuclear weapons were a fine deterrent then, and Mutually Assured Destruction should work just as well against Iraq. This is so idiotic it takes my breath away. Mutually Assured Destruction worked for several reasons: First, the Russian government was not, in fact, insane. Systemically evil, yes but they actually cared whether their own nation was utterly wiped off the face of the earth, and preferred to act in such a way as to keep that from happening. They knew we would and could retaliate, and so they carefully avoided provoking us

Back to this week's new Shtick! NHL FIGHTING: IT’S DRUNKFAN-TASTIC
(Part of Shtick's ongoing special report: "The NHL's Front Office is Stupider Than Any Goon") by Matt Gitlin
March 19, 2002 “The Olympics showed that fighting in hockey isn’t needed.” Every stupid hockey viewer in America, 2/26/02
People, in general, LOVE fighting. No? Then why are “South Park”, “Jerry Springer”, “WWF”, “Celebrity Boxing”, and “Celebrity Death Match” the most popular shows on TV? (Fact: the “Faces of Death” series would be the hottest thing on television if only a network was allowed to air it.) So, I’ll say it again people, in general, love fights. When a fight breaks out at a hockey game, the entire arena always noisily explodes, providing the same vibe as when a rock star has just hit the stage. Then, the crowd of 18,232 drunks, while remaining boisterous, magically becomes more attentive to the ice than lawyer David Boies was to the Florida ballots. Five years later, when fans think back to the 5-2 loss their team suffered that night, the only thing they’ll remember from the game was how great it was when their enforcer knocked the stuffing out of that jerk on the other team. Considering the NHL lives off of ticket revenue and beer sales, you’d think it would be the easiest decision in the world for them to hang onto a source of excitement that sends 18,232 drunks into a frenzy and then back to the beer stands.

From the Inside Out
An Interview with Jimmy Santiago Baca
By Steven Robert Allen
For in that place where life and death are waging war every day and the right choice is often the most difficult one, I was able to reach out and find a finger hold on the fragile ledge of hope. Hope didn't support me all the time, and wouldn't have supported others in quite the same way, but it served well enough for me to slowly pull myself up. Very simply, I learned to read and write. Jimmy Santiago Baca, A Place to Stand Today, Jimmy Santiago Baca is considered one of America's greatest poets. In Black Mesa Poems and other volumes, Baca uses his powerful, unpretentious literary voice to conjure poems of immense beauty. All manner of laurels have been dumped on his head, from the National Hispanic Heritage Award to the Pushcart Prize to the Southwest Book Award to the American Book Award. As a young man, though, Baca's prospects didn't seem so bright. At the age of 21, he was sentenced to five to 10 years in a maximum security prison for selling drugs. At the time, he was functionally illiterate and had already lived a life harder than many of us could ever imagine. Baca's new memoir, A Place to Stand , published last month by Grove Press, describes his dramatic journey through the bowels of America's prison system into the pure, saving grace of poetry.

Lessons Learned
The salvation of Flight 63 is the legacy of Flight 93.
We'd already known that many innocent lives were savedand the White House or U.S. Capitol sparedwhen Todd Beamer, Jeremy Glick and their fellow passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 93 thwarted Osama Bin Laden's hijackers. But we now know that they probably also helped save those aboard American Airlines Flight 63 on Saturday, when a man trying to set off a bomb in his shoe was quickly overpowered over the Atlantic by flight attendants and passengers, French and American, who instantly understood what they had to do.
Nearly one year ago, in his inaugural address, President Bush spoke of an America "bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above our interests and teach us what it means to be citizens." Civility itself, he went on to say, "is the determined choice of trust over cynicism, of community over chaos." How true those words ring today, and how well they describe the initiative taken by the men and women aboard both United Flight 93 in September and American Flight 63 this past weekend.
As heartened as we are by the new expression of old virtues, we're inclined to agree with Rudy Giuliani, who dismisses talk about a changed world. "We're not in a different world," he told Time magazine. "It's the same world as before, except now we understand it better."

OK, maybe it's too much Bailey's in my coffee this morning, but I actually have this feeling that things are starting to look a little bit better for the good guys and a little bit worse for the bad guys right now. Here are some of the indicators:
  • Democratic Senate leader Tom Daschle continues to be the "cork in the bottle" when it comes to the economic stimulus bill. He is insistent on turning this bill into handouts for the core Democratic constituency and big campaign donors. So, what's good about this? The fact that the American people seem to see right through Daschle and his goals, that's what. He can't pull this scam off with the same immunity that Clinton could.
  • A university in Florida is actually firing a tenured professor who enjoys shouting "Death to Israel" and making anti-American statements. Hey, he has freedom of speech. That doesn't mean that he can't be fired if he brings bad publicity to his employer.

    Click on the logo to return to the main menu. Smokers: a historical guide Cannabis's influences on the world's historical development are many and varied. From classic literature and royal families to the design of album covers in the latter part of the 1960s, few aspects of life have passed untouched by the smoke of the noble weed. Here, roughly in chronological order, we present ten of these toking individuals or groups for your enjoyment... The Hashishin The alteration of consciousness through the repeated consumption of vegetable or plant products - e.g. drug taking - has been around as long as humanity has. Traces of cannabis have been found in human remains dated around 2,000 years before Christ's birth. Of all the great smokers of antiquity, though, I have chosen to highlight the contribution of the Hashishin, if only because they are at once the most famous and most notorious - and perhaps least understood. Led by Hasan Al Sabah, the "Old Man of the Mountain", the Hashishin were a cult based at the mountain fortress of Alamut, located in what is modern-day Iran. By all accounts (including that of Marco Polo), these people - from whose name the modern term assassin is derived - were a pretty scary bunch. Hasan's followers were a band of fearless political killers, and his method of indoctrination was pretty unique. He constructed a secret garden furnished with all the paradisical delights of paradise - women, great food and, of course, hashish. After the would-be assassins had experienced a few days of this mediaeval rock star lifestyle they were cast out with a mission, and the promise that if they completed it successfully and then committed suicide, they would return to the paradise.

    Author, Steel my Soldiers Hearts Hello. I see a lot of old friends out there around the room and a lot of new friends we'll enjoy in years to come, and I'm very privileged to be here. I'm a native of Santa Monica and I know a lot about terrorism because I was Santa Monica's original terrorist and that's why I joined the service at fourteen. It was either end my terrorism or go to jail. What I'll talk about today, in the next 24 minutes and 11 seconds, is a bit about terrorism, a bit about the war of the future that we're now involved in, and a bit about my wife and my most recent book, which is called Steel My Soldiers' Hearts , so probably a good thing would be to start there. My primer for this whole sounding off and being a little bit different was probably the water of Ocean Park, California, in the 1930s, which was very difficult to get because we hadn't hijacked it from up North at that time. It's that rebel attitude that kind of stuck with me throughout my life. When I lobbed into Italy right after the end of World War II, I was in a reconnaissance battalion visited by a Dwight David Eisenhower. For some of the younger folks here that haven't had American history, he was a general in World War II and subsequently became the President. He popped in front of me and I was like — oh, maybe 5'2" or 5'3", something like that — the criteria for going into the U.S. Army at the time was lifting up a 9.5 M-l rifle, and I must have passed that test at the Santa Monica Post Office. He said to me, "what do you think of the chow?" and I said, "it stinks." Now, those of you who have ever been in the military, it kind of goes there's a five star, four star, three star and then stinks, stinks, stinks. Then he said, "Why?" and I said, "all we eat is Spam" – SPAM

    The Death of Easy Assumptions
    We are a people who have a long history of making easy assumptions that turned out to be dreadfully wrong. As a child growing up in West Texas I played many a game of Cowboys and Indians. I always wanted to be the cowboy, of course, because everyone knew they were the good guys. The Indians were the bad guys, they were savages, just ask John Wayne. It didn't take much education to discover that it had been my ancestors, people who looked like me and wore the big hats, that had taken land that belonged to Native Americans, and forced the natives into virtual slavery, and nearly wiped out the original culture of this great country. My easy assumptions about who the savages were in the childhood game were completely wrong. Or what about the original sins of this country, slavery and racism? For centuries we operated religiously and economically based on the assumption that people of African heritage were less than human, they were savages, and therefore were fit to be kept as slaves or treated with discrimination. Once again, our easy assumptions about who the savages were in the whole white-black debate were exactly wrong. And this pattern of making easy assumptions that turn out to be dreadfully wrong continues to be played out in our culture. We see it right now in the debate over gay rights. The religious and moral arbiters of our society are jumping up and down screaming that the whole framework of our democracy will fall apart if we simply give homosexual citizens the rights the Constitution guarantees them in the first place. It's obvious to them, and easy to assume, that homosexuality is wrong biblically, morally, and culturally. It will destroy our family life, they say. In other words, they use the same arguments that were once used to deny women the vote and denied people of color equal rights. Time after time in this country, in case after case, our easy assumptions about what is right, and what is moral, and what is Christian have not only been wrong, they have been completely wrong.

    USA Today, February 5). The cloaked information posted on a variety of highly trafficked web sites has allegedly included maps, targets, and instructions related to terrorist activities.
    Steganography, the ancient practice of concealing information, is a shadowy cousin to the more obvious and well-known practice of encrypting secret messages.
    To recover a hidden message posted on the web, the sender must first tell the intended recipient where to find the stego-media; then the recipient can extract the information using the same software that created it. Because intercepting stego-files is so difficult, and dissemination so simple, steganography has become a popular means of communication for those who prefer to fly below the radar, which includes everyone from privacy nuts who stego their regular e-mails, to the terrorists who want to stego-smuggle information around the globe.

    Home Page Two News Portal Forum ... Links THE "SOVIET COLLAPSE"
    WHAT REALLY HAPPENED By: Alan Stang For the last few weeks, we have been exploring the supremely crucial question of whom we are fighting in the present "war on terror." Last week, we returned to the beginning of the Soviet seizure of Russia in 1917, and began to look at the "Soviet collapse," and we saw that the Soviets have "collapsed" time after time. Let's look at that tactic more closely. In 1921, Lenin saw that his Communist dictatorship would collapse without help, so he announced a complete overhaul, known as the New Economic Policy, the propaganda point of which was to prove that the Soviets were just like us Americans. The West, preeminently the United States, sent the aid that saved the new Soviet Union. By 1924, Lenin had died and the time had come to digest all this help. New Soviet dictator Stalin now reversed Soviet policy, which again became harsh. So, the United States had helped install the Communists in the first place, at which point the Communists were good guys. As soon as they took over, the Cheka implemented the Red Terror, so they were bad guys. They were good guys again, during NEP, and then bad guys again when NEP was thrown out.
