Heard a couple of days ago at Has Beans in Eureka:
I stopped reading the Times Standard over 20 years ago. They put Doonesbury on the editorial page instead of the comics page. Meanwhile, the page opposite the comics contain perverted sex ads. So they would much rather influence the kids with perverted sex than political commentary.
I pulled out my copy of today’s TS. Can’t find the perverted sex anywhere!
We’re spending the night in Eureka. Asher has a performance for his music class tomorrow afternoon up at HSU. They had dress rehersal today. The classes are all doing portions of Hello Dolly. Cute as Hell.
On our way up this morning it was raining pretty hard. I was in the fast lane not paying close enough attention to what was going on to my right. A vehicle merged into the slow lane and a vehicle already there was trying to move to the right but I was in the way. I looked over and saw Andy Barnett driving and perhaps frustrated at the sandwich situation I was contributing to. Sorry Andy!
It’s official. In my 5-year-old’s world of experience, Liu’s (4th Street, Eureka) makes the best hot and sour soup.
I was picking up our order tonight but the poststickers were still ten minutes from ready. So I took the opportunity to walk by the Eureka Reporter and over to the Coop to pick up a North Coast Journal and whatever other free literature might look interesting. The Eureka Coop branch is growing on me. At first it reminded me of any Whole Foods you might find in Marin County, but it’s already breaking in to the more rustic appeal of the Arcata branch. Seems to be doing decent business despite the spontaneous boycott announced on a KMUD talk show recently – over the Arkley profit sharing. Apparently 1 percent of net proceeds goes to Security National, or so the caller represented.
Pan’s Labyrinthe is playing at the Broadway. Didn’t make it tonight. Kids didn’t go down in time.
The PALCO forum seeking controversy continues as somebody actually paid a visit to the alleged Corpus Christi PALCO office. From the Times Standard:
After reading a Thursday report in the Times-Standard about the 300-foot office Scotia Development apparently rents in Corpus Christi, a former McKinleyville resident, on his own initiative, checked it out. Ralph McFarland went to the site and e-mailed the Times-Standard about what he found — or rather, didn’t.
When McFarland couldn’t findSuite 104, he inquired at the landlord’s office.
”The gal at the front desk there led me down a short hall within their suite to an unmarked door just to the left and down a step from the hallway,” McFarland wrote.
He asked the woman if anyone was using Suite 104, and she replied that she didn’t know.
The Times-Standard’s phone call to the landlord has not been returned. Neither have phone calls to Scotia Development’s Corpus Christi number.
Hubris. To say the least.
Addendum: Note also Hank Sims column, entitled in the AEB e-mail I just received entitled “Those Fuckers Knew…”
