to take 1 more PGA shot Despite apparently slim odds,
city and county leaders raced Wednesday to resuscitate the fast-fading
PGA Village development.
Wolff: "..it's almost like being pushed back to the 10-yard
line and we're trying to throw a good hard pass to win the game."
to save PGA Village
I am supporting
County Judge Nelson Wolff in his attempt to drum up some emails
to the PGA to assure them that there is a substantial base of
public support for a PGA golf course at PGA Village.
Any development of Lumbermen's Investment Corporation's Bexar
County land, other than the PGA Village concept, would negate
the extensive environmental and aquifer protections already
negotiated. Simply put, golf courses are kinder to the aquifer
than are vast (or even half-vast) housing developments.

I do respect
the view of tens of thousands of people who signed petitions
to force a public vote on the project, but then saw your efforts
go up in smoke because of fancy footwork by the previous City
Council. You were maneuvered out of an election that you deserved.
That being noted, life goes on, and it is still unavoidably
obvious that, given the alternatives, the PGA Village would
be the most aquifer-friendly use of LIC's land. I hope you
will take a minute to say so to the PGA before its big board
meeting next Tuesday.

class teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living.
Firefighter, Police Officer, Doctor, and so on-- until David said, "My
father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret. He takes off his clothes
in front of other men. Sometimes, if the money's right, he'll go outside
with some guy and make love with him for money."
The teacher hurriedly took David aside and asked, "Is that really
true about your father?"
"No," said David, "He works for the Kerry for President

Powell told Dubai-based Middle East Broadcasting Center in an interview
aired late on Wednesday.
His remarks again appeared at odds with British Prime Minister Tony
Blair's contention last week that the Iraqi government would be able
to veto operations such as the U.S. assault on insurgents in Falluja
Here a Minute Ago, Says Bremer
Sure, the Iraqis are going to get their sovereignty by June
30. Just remember that famous line from the end of Lawrence of Arabia.
"It seems we are going to have an English waterworks with an
Arabian flag." Just substitute UN for English, and Iraqi for
Arabian. Right before George Bush, in place of Lawrence, gets shipped
home getting no credit for being the one to actually accomplish anything.
