Protest At Wal-Mart - Saturday May 19th @ Noon

For those of you in Austin without napping babies, please attend the protest at the Norcross Wal-Mart on Saturday May 19th at Noon. For those of you who may not know, Wal-Mart threatened everyone opposed to them coming into the Northcross location (including city council members) with lawsuits and basically said if neighborhoods didn’t go along with their plans, they would “take away” all the (really SMALL) concessions they made. So basically, let me translate this for you. Wal-Mart said “f*ck you” to concerns from Austin citizens living in the neighborhoods directly impacted by their store’s affect on traffic & crime (after sending out these cheery announcements to everyone in the zip code claiming they “worked with neighbors”…guess that didn’t work!) Yeah, they’re pretty cool that way.
Here is some annotated information from Responsible Growth For Northcross:

We are organizing a one-hour protest at the Norwood Wal-Mart Supercenter this Saturday afternoon from noon to 1:00 pm to keep the pressure on Wal-Mart. Please come help us send a clear message to Wal-Mart that it cannot threaten Austin and its neighborhoods. The neighborhoods of Northcross have rejected Wal-Mart¹s plans for Northcross Mall. Wal-Mart should either work with us to truly address concerns or abandon altogether its plan to locate at Northcross.

So bring your family, friends and neighbors this Saturday, May 19th, to the Norwood Wal-Mart at 183 & I-35 (1030 Norwood Park Blvd.) at noon. We will protest on the sidewalks along Norwood Park Blvd, not on Wal-Mart property. We will obey protesting rules:

* Stay on the public sidewalk or within the first 10 feet directly adjacent to public street if there is no sidewalk.
* Do not block driveways or access.
* Stay out of the street.
* Ignore any counter-protesters or rude passersby.

We will have signs and water (but it¹s always good to bring your own). Wear red. Help us make this protest so loud it¹s heard all the way to Bentonville.

Boo Hoo

A big ole sarcastic cry of pity for Joe Francis who is "having such a rough time in a Florida jail that he recently told a psychiatrist that suicide was a possibility if his imprisonment was prolonged."

"The porn impresario, who this week finishes a 45-day sentence for criminal contempt, also told Dr. Ronald Markman that he was being housed with "all murderers" in his section of the Bay County lockup. "I started freaking out and screaming, I couldn't breathe," said Francis. "I don't think I can handle this on a long-term thing--I'm not a criminal."

Actually, yeah, you are. So shut the f*ck up you big baby.

Read his psychiatric evaluation and the rest of the article over at Smoking Gun.

It's Not Quite What You Think...

Library sets up sex line to raise cash

Wednesday, May 9, 2007 -- This isn't the typical whispering you might expect to hear at a library. A library in Vienna is setting up a sex phone line to raise cash.
Vienna's City Hall has launched a 'sex hotline"' to raise money for the capital's main public library, officials announced yesterday. It's unusual, but it's not particularly raunchy: Callers pay 39 euro cents (25p) a minute to listen to an actress read breathless passages from erotica dating to the Victorian era.
City Hall set up the hotline earlier this month to help the library raise cash for planned remodeling and expansion, Austrian media reported.

I Find This Humorous

"The National League is abuzz over the early performance of the 22-10 Milwaukee Brewers. Apparently, they’re not satisfied to kick ass, they want to be elbow deep in it. The Crew is offering free rectal exams at Miller Park on Tuesday..."
