... As a long-time reader of The Nation, I was absolutely horrified to see an ad for fucking Fox News thanking amerikkka for making them the No. 1 news channel. Eeeeeekkkkk!!! I mean, I understand the whole thing about paying for ads and everything, but this is like Nightspots accepting an ad from the Heritage Foundation. You wouldn't do that, would you Sukie? ...

... Another one bites the dust. Seeing Spots has learned that gay-rights pioneer Morris Kight has died at the age of 83. Among other things, he formed the LA branch of the Gay Liberation Front, an organization that yours truly joined forces with in 1975. I met Mr. Kight only once, briefly, while I was in LA for the Spew II 'zine convention a few years ago. It was quite an honor to meet him ...

... It seems that your vice-president (not mine) spoke at a Republican Senate and House members gathering in White Sulfur Springs, W. Va. recently and ripped Bill Clinton a new asshole for failing to properly address terrorism and thereby being responsible for the mess the Dis-united States is in now.

OK, if there were that many fucking Republicans in one place at one time, don't you think that would be the time to, like, test a bomb or something? I mean, really! How many opportunities like this are we gonna miss, huh?

Furthermore, aren't the Republicans also in a snit because Clinton continues to be an outspoken critic of the Bush administration? These idiots want it both ways. They want to be able to bitch about him, but heaven forbid he should bitch about them! Whatever!! Mind you, these are the same fuckwads who sent President Buffoon to a Black church on Martin Luther King's birthday to say he was not supporting affirmative action. How's that for a major 'fuck you?' What I wanna know is, who the hell was in that church anyway? Where did President Buffoon's handlers find that many brain-dead negroes to sit and drool during that speech? Oh, sorry. I forgot. Most of the country is brain-dead ...

... Well, it appears that along with homophobia, the Texas pigs who arrested John Lawrence and Tyron Garner for 'violating' that state's Homosexual Conduct Law (the case is currently before the Supreme Court) are also guilty of racism. (Quel surprise!) What happened was, a neighbor who did not like the idea that Mr. Garner was sleeping with a colored fella, called the police and said that there was an 'armed black man going crazy in Garner's apartment.' Methinks that would set off the Texas cops, no? What sounded to the neighbor like a 'black man going crazy' must have been some serious fucking. Anyway, the pigs burst in, and I'm sure they screamed 'Jackpot!!' ...

... 'Late Nite with Joan Jett-Blakk,' my live talk show, has been booked into Bailiwick Theatre for six sissified weeks starting March 22. I promise you a good time, really I do. Check these pages for more details as we get closer to showtime ...
