AGENDA Many of you have heard Dr. Laura, Pat Robertson, Jerry
Falwell, and others speak of the "Homosexual Agenda," but
no one has ever seen a copy of it.
I asked a friend of mine - who recently obtained a copy of the HOMOSEXUAL
AGENDA directly from the Head Homosexual - if he would send me a copy.
He did and now I am sharing it with all of you.
I certainly hope it will assist you so that you will be prepared.

Thank you for thanking Mr. Lee for keeping down costs. I would
love to write a "thank you" like that but the command of facetious
platitudes always seems to escape me. Once again, thank you from what
I am sure is a lot of us. Your fellow sufferer,
... I went to
your website, as I do rather often at work, and was surprised by the
letter to Mr. Milton Lee. I had no idea that was going on. Just this
morning, I had to pay an overdue CPS bill for my mother because the
address on the account says Crooked Road St. We live on Crooked Road.
There is another street called Crooked Street. Sometimes our mail
ends up on the wrong road and we never get it from the ppl living
there. I want to propose that you have on your website a way for people
to say ditto, like signing a petition. Is there something that says
talk show hosts can't work directly to change the problems they learn
about? I am in college, and work a part time job, and have a young child.
I don't have much time to take off to go down to city hall for some
rally or to speak my mind ... I would love to see that letter sent to
Mr. Milton Lee with my name on it too, and everyone else whose yearly
income is below the poverty level. Thank you for letting me speak my
mind and reading what I have to say,
Helen E H
I agree with you 110%. And in addition to your gripe, please let me
add one. CPS is the ONLY bill I can't pay online or with a credit
card over the phone. I've only been here a couple of years and the
last week or two when I heard what kind of money this guy was getting,
I almost got mad enough to go back to Ft Worth...

Dear Mr. Lee:
I for one hope
you do get your $280,000 bonus this year, in addition to your
base salary of $280,000, because you are obviously holding down
labor costs at our publicly owned utility company.
As one example,
you have kept the number of telephone assistance personnel at
substandard levels, as attested to by thousands of customers or
would-be customers who are put on Hold for an hour or two, or
in some reported cases for an entire day or who can't get
CPS to even answer the phone in the first place.
of efficiency is one I can personally confirm. For the past three
months running, my wife Carole has been filling out the Change
of Address form on our CPS bill, and for three months your efficient
operation has been ignoring the form. This indicates to us that
the Change of Address people are consistent in their performance,
and that you are quite likely keeping CPS labor costs under a
expense of your own personal paycheck to just $10,769 a week (not
counting benefits) is appreciated. Heaven knows other utility
CEOs are probably out there really skinning their customers.
Mayor Ed Garza
and the other Board members who approve your compensation are
also consistent in their performance, but that's a matter for

say "mobile labs" tip unverified
The Bush administration's prewar assertion that Saddam Hussein
had a fleet of mobile labs that could produce bioweapons
rested largely on information from an Iraqi defector working
with another government who was never interviewed by U.S.
intelligence officers. "..intelligence officials
have discovered that he is related to a senior official
in Ahmed Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress, a group of Iraqi
exiles who actively encouraged the United States to invade
said the trailers showed that the United States had found
former Iraqi president Hussein's prohibited weapons. "For
those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing
devices or banned weapons, they're wrong," Bush said.
"We found them."
I wanted to thank you for the recommendation on Summit Insurance.
I gave them a call, and ended up saving almost $50 a month on my
family's auto policy with much more coverage . I also let them quote
my homeowners (which I was worried about with all the recent issues)
and I was thrilled because my monthly mortgage payment is going
to be about $100 less than I thought, which means we get to do granite
countertops in our new home. I've decided to let them quote me for
a new life insurance policy and I will let you know how it turns
