Aquifer authority under fire Brief note on what this is about: in a commentary last December, I said, "After the Sierra Club's evil lawsuit which everyone knew about, a law was passed that not everyone heard about. San Antonio must reduce our use of Edwards Aquifer water. Never mind the city is expanding like crazy. Instead of getting to use more water as the population grows, the law says we will have to use less and less. Not even as much as we use now. The Aquifer Authority would like to have San Antonio's water limit raised. But towns around here will fight that. They've already started."

BBC reports "Saving Private Lynch" story phony As this website reported two weeks ago, the Toronto Star newspaper interviewed numerous people in Nasiryah and learned that doctors had tried to return Jessica to the coalition army two days before the "rescue" but the ambulance carrying her was fired on. The May 5th Toronto Star story also said the fedayeen had left the hospital a day before the "rescue" raid so there was no enemy for SpecOps to confront.

Klingon Update Mark Morford, San Francisco Chronicle: "Sorry, potential Klingon interpreters and stunningly and adorably deeply lost Star Trek ubergeeks still locked somewhere in 1975 and who haven't seen the sun since the Carter administration and who to this very day fully believe Lt. Uhura was an underappreciated divine goddess incarnate who spawned a million frenetic smasming late-night Vaseline fantasies second only to that cool sexy all-blue lizard woman from that one episode who tried to seduce Kirk with that weird sexy dance. Officials have said they won't be needing your services, after all. The office that treats mental health patients in Multnomah County, Oregon had included Klingon, the uber-geeky completely made-up Star Trek language that sounds like you're hacking up phlegm while choking on bottlecaps as you snore, on a list of 55 languages that could be spoken by really, really geeky incoming patients who never outgrew their mad desire for Hot Wheels cars and Kraft Mac 'N' Cheese and Charlie's Angels on TV Land. But the inclusion drew a spate of tongue-in-cheek headlines. And now the county has rescinded its call. County officials had said that no patient had ever come in speaking only Klingon, well maybe that one ranting rabid gibberishy Defense Department guy who claimed to have seen Lynne Cheney do things with a radioactive fuel rod that scorched his soul for all eternity and was screaming uncontrollably and had to be euthanized, but that the county would pay a Klingon interpreter in the case one was actually needed."

Tailpipe Emissions Test Issue Mark Langford of Citizens Organized for Good Science attended a meeting of the AACOG Air Tech Advisory Committee at which recommended control strategies were presented to the Executive Committee. Tailpipe emissions testing WAS recommended. Yeah, I know, you're shocked, shocked! There are several more steps in this Clean Air Plan proposal before it would become final. If you have an opinion on the $40 car inspection proposal NOW is the time to email or call the San Antonio mayor and your council member if he isn't in jail. Council links are always in my left column and the Clean Air issue is there, too (at the bottom)
