The kind folks at La Dolce Via didn't bat an eye when I asked for any assistance possible with our event. They went above and beyond our expectations in every way they could, making everyone involved feel truly appreciated. The community can be encouraged to return the favor and get a wonderful meal out of the deal!

I saw them in KC last year and they were absolutely amazing. Kim seemed so happy. They're a huge influence on me, as they have been on about a million bands. They invented quiet/loud/quiet, for fuck's sake.

I also believe in equal time for opposing views. Tom Tomorrow's cartoon is humorous, and so very wrong. You guys and your hatred for George Bush is sometimes hard to believe. I'm sure Tomorrow is an educated man; however, it is obvious he does not do his due diligence. Nobody on the kook-fringe-left does. You believe everything you hear, read or are told, and you do nothing to find out the real truth: There were (and still are) WMDs in Iraq and all over the Middle East. There are more trees in the world than there were before Columbus discovered America. It was 104 degrees three times in Wisconsin during the 1930s. Our country does not engage in indiscriminate bombing; in fact, quite the opposite (it is obvious you have not served in the military and are probably damn proud of that). The New York Times did help the enemy and compromise our intelligence.
Why you crazies don't realize that these religious fanatics want us all dead, and will do everything they can to accomplish that end, is very puzzling. On 9/11, everything changed. History will show that George Bush was a determined, committed president who went after the Hitlers of our time in spite of the constant hatred and criticism spewed by the Hillaries (who I happen to like), Ted (who I cannot stand...they killed the wrong Kennedy. Oswald. Oh yes, the Muslim. Sirhan, Sirhan, Sirhan), Gore (shudder to think of him as president, whew), and of course, "Yes I voted for it, and then I voted against it, I think. I'm not indecisive, am I?" Kerry (God was looking out for us with this one).
I know you won't print this; however, I had to get this off my chest. Thank you for allowing me to spew at you.
