ballot initiative stalls
over "one" confusing to San Antonio voters?
Some City Council members claim to believe that we would
be confused if asked to vote on TWO tax issues this November.
is the issue I discussed yesterday with former council member Bonnie
Conner, who said a recent poll found that 62 percent support extending
Proposition 3 to purchase and set aside more land over the Edwards
Aquifer and its recharge zone, to prevent additional land development.
an email sent to John Cook (Operations
Manager) with a copy to me and to Howard Toole (Sales Manager).
I do not know why the writer didn't also send it to our local
big boss, Reid Reker.
The writer was
a caller on Tuesday. His name is Scott, but for some reason his
line was labeled "Don" so I mistakenly called him that
a couple of times.
He did NOT enjoy
his conversation with me. Can you tell?
I am an equal
opportunity critic of short sighted politicians no matter their
party, whether local, state or national. No fondness for Bush,
nor Kerry nor Texas Gov. Blowdry nor Mayor Garza because they
represent fatcats, not ordinary people.
you, too, would like to make remarks about me to my bosses and colleagues,
here are some of their email links:
I am delighted you replaced Carl and Eliza. Frankly, I believed
that they both had their strengths, but Eliza needs to be in a more
liberal market where liberals rule. I got so sick of hearing how
Queer Eye was the best show on television. My kids asked me why
she said that. Hard to explain to 9 and 10 year olds. Carl was so
negative that, during his show, I had to hide my razor blades.
That brings me to Brad. He has his moments, but his bashing of Bush
is tedious. Even in discussing Linda Rondstadt, he alluded that
her poor singing was the reason she was booed off stage. No, Mr.
Cook, she was booed and walked out on because she bashed our president.
Perhaps Brad should take a clue. All he seems to do is down grade
the present administration and comment negatively on almost everything.
Now, that is his right. My right is to turn him off and stay away
from his advertisers. This is very hard for me. Texas Hamburger
Company makes the best bacon cheeseburgers in town. But I will choose
Chester's from now on, and let the folks at Texas Hamburgers know
why. I have roadrunner and plan to cancel and go to SW Bell. I do
not, and will not use Kinetico or the other Brad Messer sponsors,
even though I had planned to buy a Kinetico to replace my water
softener. You should know that my entire office used to listen to
Brad, but now, much to my chagrin, Rush rules the waves. I am not
a Ditto head. I will listen to Christian radio during Brad's shift.
I just can no longer stand his constant negative comments on almost
everything, especially Bush's decision to go after terrorism. I
wonder what Brad would have done?
I love the rest of the crew, Trey, Boler, Ricci, Jack and even Duel.
Also, Dave Ramsey was a very smart choice for a syndicated show.
I am pained to write this, because I normally vote with my finger
on the dial and am **deigned to criticize
Sir, I worked my way through college in radio. For many years I
managed the college radio station. I applied for and received a
$4 million dollar grant for a new Radio Television department, which
included new buildings. During my tenure, radio TV enrollment rose
over 400%. I did this in the early 70's in the Texas Panhandle with
long hair which was tantamount to treason in those parts. I played
Merle Haggard dutifully though my heart was with Jethro Tull. In
other words, sir, I served the public interest before and instead
of my own. Is that not a condition of your license as well? Truly

Ten-Foot Poll on Iran---RESULT
CIA at odds over possible link between Iran and 9-11
President's interest in a possible 9/11 connection goes against
the agency leader's assessment.
President Bush said Monday that his administration was
investigating possible links between Iran and the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks, a statement that distanced the president
from acting CIA Director John McLaughlin, who had downplayed
a possible connection a day earlier.

Does this story give you the idea that President Bush might
like to invade Iran next?
