Biniki: the Butt Bra
"..Biniki works because of a unique three ring system that adjusts to the wearer's body, with the adjustable leg loops riding just under the buttocks, where the buttocks and thighs meet."
Thanks, Chuck

Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in the left column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

New stuff is posted between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. Monday-Friday

Friday: Ex-CIA operative Robert Baer, author of "Sleeping With the Devil, How Washington Sold our Soul for Saudi Crude"
"Over the past decade, Saudi Arabia has transferred half a billion dollars to al Qaeda and at least $100 million to the Taliban"

City Council
Smoking Ban
revisions to be considered tomorrow (Thur.) by San Antonio City Council (Item 4 on agenda)
will apply to private businesses, too!
Also interesting is the magician's trick of pulling $25,000 from back in 1999 to be spent in 2003 (item 66)
Item 67 is to accept $5M+ from Homeland Security for "purchase of anti-terrorism and weapons of mass destruction incident related equipment.."
Items 73 thru 87 are "contingency budget" monies including some school supplies for church kids, $350 for a Pop Warner team, $200 for a neighborhood association's Night Out event, $2800 for a Back to School fair, $1920 for Foster Grandparents, and so on. Many council members are trying to spend their slush funds in anticipation of a vote on Item 88 to end slush funds and turn their balances back into the city general fund.

It astounds me that airport screeners haven't ALREADY been checking for hollow or explosives-filled cameras, radios and such. If we were serious, we'd have been doing it from the day after 9-11.

Your position on this issue [Smoke Ban] implies that one restaurant is just as good as another! The restaurants that advertise on your station would not agree with this. You tell nonsmokers to go to another restaurant. What if they like the food at the one they are at and don't want to go to another? There is also the historical fact that when there were no smoking bans there were no nonsmoking restaurants for people to go to. It seems that the market needs a little help here.

Thanks for including contacts for the city and county officials with the e-mails and phone numbers! It really is a great help. I have used the information and appreciate you making it available. I listen to you daily on KTSA. Keep the S--T flowing. Great job!

Dear Brad:
You hit the nail on the head. Most of us aren't the least bit concerned about redistricting. We're concerned about our military personnel in Iraq, education, jobs, taxes, and the economy...
