Skateboarding rises as transportation

By DrSinValley, published on Apr 30, 2007

...2004 Skateboard Master Plan. “While current law only permits skateboard use on residential sidewalks between dawn and dusk, real usage is going on nearly around the clock.” For skaters like Garcia the ride can be a haphazard gauntlet of speeding cars, pedestrians, potholes and police. “Scary moments? I’ve had a few,” Garcia wrote in an e-mail, “a couple of close encounters with cars pulling out into traffic and not seeing me on the shoulder.” The law is another risk for skaters. When Garcia rolls to the east edge of the SFSU campus, he always... (more)

Deep Throat, The Movie--Lettuce Fields and Feed Lots.

By Steven Lane, published on Apr 29, 2007

...Imperial Valley Press". A reporter there called me and did a quick interview, which was printed the next day. The "buzz" was quick and intense and then a few days later the proverbially shit hit the fan. With less than 36 hours till "opening", I received a phone call from the just, honorable police chief of the fine burg of El Centro. "Steve, I just want you to know, that if you attempt to show that trash in our city, you and your manager will be arrested within five minutes of the start of the film. We will seize the film and you WILL spend, at the very least, the weekend in jail. I... (more)

By Elliot K, published on Apr 28, 2007

...per hour zone on Route 9A. Well, as soon as I spoke up, five other people who were sitting in our section, in the back on the left if you are looking from where the judge sits, also spoke up and we all realized that we had all been pulled over in the same area of the parkway and by the same police officer, for the same infraction; 65mph in a 40mph zone, a veritable speed trap. This was very interesting to me. I had seen radar guns at work many years ago when I was a college student in Connecticut and I did a ride along with a friend who had just become a Hartford Police officer. The... (more)

Illinois Penal Code Section 17.2 - Creative Writing

By Glenn T, published on Apr 27, 2007

...and raised in "red" states. I was in the military for a decade. I mostly think that the American Civil Liberties Union is an organization filled with people who need a haircut and a "real job." I'm a corporate attorney, for goodness' sake. I'm not constantly on the lookout for the Thought Police, and I don't think we're a nation on the brink. I have spent the last week reading editorials and op-eds about our overreaction to the Virginia Tech shootings. (Note: I did not call it the "Virginia Tech Massacre" – we're about 10 years of genocide short of that designation; look up... (more)

...into the shower and to work.speaking of the car where is the dam thing ? I don't see it on the right side either ? the next logical train of thought would be that it was towed for being on the wrong side one time to many,or getting coffee at the curb hoping against all odds that a traffic Police would not show up.OK.The next logical action would be to call 311,they are really helpful,WWW.whatever yep it was indeed towed !

Campus Shootings Stimulates Debates

By Credo, published on Apr 19, 2007

...teenagers killed 12 fellow students and a teacher before taking their own lives or in 1966 at the University of Texas at Austin, where Charles Whitman climbed the clock tower and opened fire with a rifle from the 28th-floor observation deck. He killed 16 people before he was shot to death by police. We must not lose site of the fact that while we huddle in groups pro or con we debate over an issue that was decided by the forefathers of this great country. They had decided to bear arms because they were aware that we may be called to defend our way of life some day within the boarders... (more)

Why The Road To Hell Is Paved With Good Intentions

By Frank J Hopkins, published on Apr 18, 2007

...half have no respect for themselves and almost as little for anyone else. It is time to have a honest discourse over the why many black people over the age of 30 want to as far away as possible from people who look like them but who younger are far more dangerous to their well being than the police. It is time for black people to stop allowing these non elected spokesmen to tell their story and to begin to tell their truth and their story in their own words with their own agenda. For so long as 50 cent and all like him are hailed as 'new poets' and tough-minded word smiths by a white... (more)
