Valentine's Day special starts 4pm tomorrow at Napoli's restaurant, 1210 Pat Booker at Villa in Universal City. Wonderfully good food, special treats for ladies including chocolate and a rose. Carole and I plan to be there quietly and pretty much anonymously, but if you see a handsome guy who looks like Richard Gere, it's probably me. Napoli's 659-9099.



Texas won't get more highway money While Texas always has sent more money to the federal Highway Trust Fund than it gets back, Hutchison said the latest bill unfairly turns her state into a "superdonor" -- one of six states singled out for a substantially lower rate of return.

Majority doubts Bush's WMD claims Most Americans believe the president either lied or deliberately exaggerated evidence that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction in order to justify war, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Conservatives spotlight Kerry's anti-war record

Krugman commentary
The Real Man
Bush publicity campaign's goal "is to suggest that it's unpatriotic to criticize the president, and to use his heroic image to block any substantive discussion of his policies."


1 Drudge's Kerry-sex-scandal story gets little traction
2 Sun tabloid names the alleged Kerry woman


Re. Jeez Louise, Brad
You're reading this Kerry story off the Drudge site, doncha think it has ROVE written all over it? What's been all over the news the last few days? AWOL and Bush. A surefire way to get the pack running the other way is to have a Democratic sex scandal. Forget about all the Republicans who screw around (Gingrich, Barr, Hyde, and on and on) and who grope (Arnold). Let's throw out some specious story about Kerry. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Quick, everybody, look over here. Forget about Bush...

Privacy issues delay new airport screening database

GOP senators, officials back alien proposal The administration rolled out its top immigration officials and several senior Republican senators yesterday to endorse publicly a guest-worker program offered by President Bush that could give legal status to the 8 million to 12 million illegal aliens now in the United States.


Is it just me or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington. Also they track her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country.

email (my favorite in many weeks)

Mr. Messer,
I am so sad to send this email, but I find that I just must voice my "opinion" (as you continually do publicly). All of our radios are tuned to 550 AM, but when your diatribe comes on, all the buttons go in the "off" mode.
Your constant attack against the leader of our great country is shameful.
I wish you could be jailed for your comments, but as you so recklessly promote, our constitution gives our citizens the right to be stupid with no threat of punishment. I'll bet the terrorists who might be roaming our own city find your comments very useful.
As hard as you work to tear our president down, it's amazing to me that the radio station even keeps you in their employ. You are lucky I'm not the CEO because I'd fire you so fast you'd get pneumonia from the breeze. Trey, Ricki, Brent, are the backbone of the radio station, and I will continue to listen to them because I value their opinions even if they sometimes differ from mine, because when they differ they are not vicious. you are!
I don't expect a response. I feel better just getting this off my mind and that's all I really wanted to do. I believe you harm our country every time you come on the air, as this is exactly what the enemy wants us to do. disagree with our elected officials and cause turmoil among our people. You do a great job at that! Thank you (if you got this far in the email).
Kaye W.

Hi, Kaye. You enclosed the word opinion in quotes, which signifies that "opinion" really means something other than an actual, real opinion. Did you miss that part in school? Perhaps you were off attending a meeting of "people" who were bleating in unison that people shouldn't disagree with their elected officials.


9:30 a.m.

Hi Brad,
Loved your e-mail from Kaye W. She's right about one thing, our constitution gives our citizens the right to be stupid-- she is living proof.
I hadn't been aware that you were trying to tear the president down. Wow, who would want to tear down a devious weasel like Bush who lies every time Karl Rove opens his mouth.
She is one of these closed-minded lemmings who follow the neocon line like it was gospel. Don't know what it takes to wake these people up ... Keep up the good work Brad, you get people thinking and that's what we need.
