Thanks so much for your support. A great celebration at La Tuna, wish you
could have been there. San Antonio voters are so wise about some things. They do understand how valuable our Aquifer and our beautiful natural are, and they are willing to pay to protect them!! Some of our "leaders" are not in touch with the citizens.
Congratulations to those who voted to support these tangible, irreplaceable assets. Warm regards,

Thanks again for your help with Proposition 2 (and 1). Both
your on-air and web site support were invaluable, especially for a
no-bucks campaign like I had to run. I'm excited about the good for
the city we'll be able to do as a result of this additional funding; it
will will help provide a parks system that San Antonio can be proud of.
As excited as I am about the results, I'm really impressed with the
voters' thoughtful response to the three propositions. That so many
people voted for 3, yet voted for 1 and 2 also, really shows that they
differentiate between issues. Conventional wisdom might have indicated
that a vote for 3 would have meant voting against 1 and 2. But,
while they wanted their property taxes capped, they also saw the value
of protecting our water supply and investing in our parks system. You
played an important role in letting people know what the facts were.

RUMSFELD UPGRADES IRAQ FROM QUAGMIRE TO MORASS
Situation Disastrous But Not Catastrophic, Defense Sec'y Says
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld told reporters at the Pentagon today that the conflict in Iraq had improved to the point that it could no longer be considered a quagmire and should now be thought of as a morass.
"After taking a look at what is going on there on the ground, it is my judgment that it is time to upgrade Iraq from quagmire to morass," Mr. Rumsfeld said, adding that he was "very confident" in making the new assessment.
The Defense Secretary said that the decision to invade Iraq could no longer be considered "a boneheaded mistake of unthinkable proportions" and should now be thought of as "a colossal error we will regret for years to come."
"That's a measure of how much things have improved," he said. "Anyone who takes a look at the big picture over there would come away saying that the situation is disastrous but not catastrophic."
In order to fight the perception that the war in Iraq is going badly, Mr. Rumsfeld said he would ask Congress for an additional $37 billion dollars to go toward euphemisms and synonyms.
Mr. Rumsfeld appeared to bristle at the question of one reporter, Charles Dolgian of the Toledo Blade, who asked if it was still appropriate to refer to the war in Iraq as "a train wreck."
"It is most decidedly not a train wreck," Mr. Rumsfeld said. "It is a train derailment in which the train hurtles down into the embankment and bursts into flames."
