TABLOID HART: I read where a lot of ya'll are wondering about Governor George W. Bush's little smirk. It's simple: being governor of Texas is a cakewalk. You see, we passed this law what says that the Legislature can only meet once every TWO YEARS. I'm betting most of ya'll Yankees didn't know that. So is ole George Dubya....THOMAS HART, "Guttersnipe Election Coverage"
MEMOIRS OF THE INFORMATION AGE: In his State of the Union address, President Clinton proposed a $3 Billion (USD) fund for high tech research and development. The titans of the semiconductor industry were doing the macarena in streets from Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley. That's the American way of budgets: when the money is set aside for someone else, it's "pork," when it's set aside for you it's a "visionary investment in the future..." ROD AMIS, "Every Pot"
PLANETARY MADNESS: There is nothing like a Solar Eclipse to roil previously indolent and complacent juices. We experience an Aquarian Solar Eclipse on Saturday (5:03am PST). Miss Luna stripteases veils from the usually occulted undersides of situations; this ought to be good for a revelatory (and necessary) thrill or two.... JENNIFER BLUE, "Current Forecast"
|DAY ONE: I would like to say something profound about the G21 exposé that Al Gore Jr. was partial in former times to the wacky baccy but neither Gore nor that particular substance fill me with the same emotional stimulus as, say, President Lionel Jospin and armagnac; nor, I must be scrupulously fair, does putting the elements together make much more of an impression. With or without Armagnac Jospin is an interesting politician, with or without marijuana Al Gore is boring....KEVIN CAREY, "ECUADOR"
POWERSSOUND: For those "Powerssound" readers who prefer the more mellow jazz sounds, reliable Arbors Records, based in Clearwater, Fla., has two new CD packages that should prove pleasing to your ears. Peter Ecklund plays cornet and sometimes trumpet. He also writes original music. He attempts to provide a blend that mixes the swinging jazz of the 20s through the 40s, along with ideas inspired by traditional American music... BOB POWERS, "Laid Back Jazz Pleases"
MY GLASS HOUSE: It would be a bit more logical and understandable to me if the "pivotal" campaigning and primary took place in a truly representative, populous state like California, Illinois, Texas or New York. But New Hampshire? Get real. They don't have many minority residents in New Hampshire, they don't have all the taxes the rest of us must live with, they don't even have a major metropolis... ROD AMIS, "Among the Elect"
VOX POPULI: From Ron D., Wendell, NC, USA: Fine issue, Rod. Three brief points. The first for Steve Vivian on the dumming down of higher education - and hence all education. In the school year 1960-1961, I was attending the University of Missouri, a master's candidate in Classical Languages, living in Dockery-Folk Hall ...
