Crisis Has Damaged US International Standing
"Coolest. Thing. Ever." -- comments accompanying an order for Fluxx from
Dan K. of San Francisco
last week's article I complained
about our stingy bank and our on-going need for growth funding.
Well, I'm happy to report that we got a lot of excellent responses
to that article! Our cashflow has gotten an excellent spike due
to all the recent orders (yay! thanks!), we've gotten several
recommendations on more business-friendly banks to consider moving
our account to, and we've gotten half a dozen serious inquiries
from supporters willing to extend us direct financial help of
I very much hope to never need to make a request like that
ever again - thank you all for helping me save Kristin's head
from exploding. This week has us feeling like the Bailey family
at the end of "It's a Wonderful Life." We sincerely
appreciate everyone's support!
Speaking of things to say thank you for...
have you cast your Origins Awards votes
|Have a Great Week!

||Every time I read an article like
War Addiction" by Emiliano Antunez, which matter-of-factly
points out the blatant unconstitutionality of the drug war, I
wonder again: how are the drug-warriors getting away with this?
I first asked this question here
over 5 years ago, and I've yet to receive a credible explanation
as to why the Supreme Court doesn't just strike prohibition down,
with a ruling akin to Roe vs. Wade. Isn't abolishing unconstitutional
laws like their main job? Again I ask: Where in the Constitution
(or the Bible, for that matter) does it say that ingesting a
weed is forbidden?
||"The ads imply that those buying drugs are
helping fund criminal enterprises and, therefore, directly responsible
for terrorism and murder. If that ain't the pot calling the kettle
black! The truth is that the only thing keeping 'illegal' drug
prices and profits artificially high, is the government's war
on drugs... those buying drugs in the inner city are no more
responsible for funding terrorism than those pumping gas at the
local gas station." -- "Drug
War Addiction" by Emiliano Antunez
||"Will roller coasters get taller,
faster, quicker than this one? Given recent history, one would
have to say 'yes,' eventually. How soon? I wouldn't even try
to guess. But know this: Cedar Point's Gemini was a record-breaker
in 1978, at 125 feet in height. Think about what's happened in
the last 25 years. Then think about the next 25 years. That,
my friends, is really scary." -- Robert
Coker's review of the 420-foot tall Top
Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point
