On Wednesday night, the state Assembly passed a bill requiring Californians, with a few exceptions, to have their dogs and cats spayed or neutered "or pay a $500 fine." As the bill moves on to the state Senate, people with pets have plenty to say about the pros and cons of spaying their pets. The bill, proposed by Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys (Los Angeles County), would allow some breeders and owners of guide dogs and purebreds to get an exemption by paying a fee. The bill poses serious problems for public safety and disaster preparedness, said Mark Herrick, a search-and-rescue... Read More

Not since former Vice President Dan Quayle has a top politician made so many misstatements in this country. Yesterday GW Bush stuck his large foot in his bigger mouth when he said this about the Queen of England. "Queen Elizabeth II helped the United States celebrate its bicentennial in 17, uh, I mean, 1976." This actually doesn't seem so bad when compared to some of the other dumb things GW has said during his presidency. Here are some of my personal favorites: "We cannot let terrorists and rogue nations hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile." When asked when a woman first... Read More

A petition has been presented to the Canadian House of Commons requesting comprehensive legislation to affect immediate protection of Bigfoot under the Canadian species at risk act. (I am not making this up!) Canadian MP Mike Lake has said he wants to sponsor this legislation based on the 500 signatures of his Edmonton, Alberta constituents. The petition was presented to the parliament and is scheduled for debate next week. Supporting Mr. Lake is Mr. Todd Standing; a Bigfoot researcher who believes Bigfoot is in danger of extinction, along with others of the species. Standing claims to... Read More

Someone asked me to write an article about being a freelance advertising copywriter. Well, it used to be called freelancing, back when I started in this business more than two decades ago. Now it's called contracting. Which, in a way, shows how much things have changed. Freelancing conjures up visuals of flip-flops and Vaurnets, back in the days when you needed a typesetter. Things were much more mellow back then. You could get away with playing the distant, quirky, creative type. It was okay if you're dressed casual, and slept in your car the night before. I told my parents back home that... Read More

Let me preface this by saying two things: 1. A crazy bitch lives in my apartment building. She's extremely loud, highly dramatic and volatile. I have never met Crazy Bitch. But I hear her yelling ALL OF THE TIME. Is she ever happy? Or at least calm? Who knows? But one thing's for sure: She's one crazy-ass BITCH. (Crazy Bitch, if you read this, I was talking about some OTHER crazy bitch. Please don't hurt me! Kisses.) 2. Two hookers used to live in my apartment--Unit #1. In other words, they conducted BUSINESS in exchange for COMPENSATION where I now eat my breakfast, burn my CDs, take my... Read More

Since the first few months of this year has included no small amount of controversial and downright shocking events, and since this great site has lately been held hostage by an unnervingly myopic tone coming from some of the recent contributions to its pages, I figured it was high time I wake from my writing hibernation and offer up a couple of pennies to any one who might be interested in them. One thing is for certain Academy award winning actor, Sean Penn, has taken no time off in voicing his opinion about the war and most specifically the President's handling of it. Thursday evening...

Cleaning up the sticky mess will take several days, according to Union Pacific officials. The 52-year-old train was carrying a variety of cargo from Dupo, Ill., and on its way to Los Angeles, when it fell off the track and dumped the thick, chunky dressing into a small canal. In a new development, a handful of Southern California sports bars have volunteered to donate two tons of spicy chicken wings and 400 lbs. of carrot and celery sticks to help absorb the spilled dressing. Various fast food chains are also offering lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and croutons. Aretha Pearles, spokesman... Read More
