"A TERRIBLE DAY IN NEW YORK CITY"

Yesterday, Randi Rhodes's neighborhood became a war zone. An underground explosion ripped through Lexington Avenue causing people to evacuate their office buildings and apartments covered in mud and blood. Oceans of people began pouring out into the streets running for their lives, crying, shaking and fleeing a geyser of boiling hot steam, mud and rocks that were being hurled around at tornado force.

This was NOT terrorism. It was a 24" steam pipe that exploded during yesterday's rush hour.

New Yorkers remember 9/11 all too clearly but even before we knew what was happening to us, people were helping each other, giving information to each other in a weird game of "street telephone". Doormen and office security calmly evacuated their buildings accounting for everyone inside and of course our police and firefighters were amazing and FAST! What a city!

While the male vocal "If Madonna calls, I'm not here." originated on a 1992 release by an unrelated artist and was similarly sampled in the less-known "What We Need" by Sam Traxx ("UMM EP", 1995), Vasquez reportedly produced & released his own version after Madonna failed to show up for a surprise performance at one of Junior's parties held at legendary New York City club "Tunnel" at the last second. Although never confirmed, Madonna seemingly did not approve of Junior's actions, ending their professional relationship on bad terms. Rumors of a professional reconciliation have circulated for years, as Vasquez has continued to remix Madonna's music with which he seems to have a special affinity and an unparalleled talent for remixing. Nonetheless, such a reconciliation is reported to be unlikely according to Madonna's longtime rep Liz Rosenberg, who in a June 2003 news story in New York Magazine said “I can assure you that Madonna will never work with Junior again.”via WIKIPEDIA

Michael Moore went off on Wolfie and CNN for a hit piece they aired about “Sicko” right before he came on. He was hot! He slapped the beard around pretty good…He says he’ll post the facts refuting their claims on his website tonight. He then attacked CNN and Blitzer for not doing their job in the run up to the war (where were you when it mattered?) and said that everything he said about the Iraq war did come to pass. He wondered why it took him so many years to get Cheney on teevee? He asked when America will get sick and tired of the “crap” they show… CROOKS & LIARS

White House Fears Senate GOP Support For Iraq Collapsing

White House officials fear that the last pillars of political support among Senate Republicans for President Bush’s Iraq strategy are collapsing around them, according to several administration officials and outsiders they are consulting. They say that inside the administration, debate is intensifying over whether Mr. Bush should try to prevent more defections by announcing his intention to begin a gradual withdrawal of American troops from the high-casualty neighborhoods of Baghdad and other cities.

I don't think it's an accident that two of the most vocal people in this country right now are lesbians. Being gay has made Melissa and Rosie fearless. I don't think it's an accident that the progressive and liberal straight voices who are speaking out against the war and saving the planet are friendly to the gay community either. I think the gay community offers a role model for living your life with honesty, integrity and not based on fear.

I have met many LGBT people with Melissa's courage and forthrightness. Melissa Etheridge is just the tip of the iceberg of courageous gays. The incredible work and talent of gay activists and scholars around the country goes un-noticed, but they are paving the way for the future."

Catch Live Earth On Bravo And NBC This Weekend

Live Earth video highlights via virtual|matter

Whether you believe that global warming is as bad as Al Gore says it is or not, chances are you’re a fan of at least one of the many bands or musicians set to rock the planet this weekend during the world-wide concert, Live Earth. If that’s the case, even if you aren’t able to get to one of the major cities where the event is taking place, you’ll still be able to catch coverage of it throughout the day on Bravo and NBC.

In cased you’ve somehow managed to avoid the news coverage for this event, Live Earth is a 24-hour concert series set to take place on seven continents in an effort to raise awareness of global warming. Live Earth calls itself “The concerts for a climate in crisis” and will feature performances by more famous musicians than you can shake a stick at. Kelly Clarkson, Smashing Pumpkins, Akon, Roger Waters, Dave Matthews Band, Genesis, The Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, Duran Duran and of course, U2 are all among the artists set to perform during the day-long concert.

The concerts will be available to view online at www.liveearth.msn.com. You can also check out the coverage all day on Saturday (7/7/07) on BRAVO between the hours of 9:00 a.m. EST and 2:00 a.m. CNBC will start covering the event and hour earlier and run to 2:00 a.m. as well.

Beware Our Thinking President:

Sure, we all know that George Bush says stupid shit all the time. It'd be charming if he was a character on a 1950s sitcom - Christ, think of the catchphrases - and not our goddamn president. But we should really be worried whenever Bush talks about something that he claims he's been thinking on (if by "thinking," you mean, "talking to people smarter than him"). The embryonic stem cell research restrictions, the Iraq war, the Scooter Libby commutation. These are the things the man does after he claims he's thought through all the possibilities; still, no matter how much thought he gives it, the outcome is hopelessly predictable.
