Kyra Phillips today had to tinkle while anchoring Bush's Katrina speech. So while her and her friend chatted in the bathroom, the Nation was treated to her slamming her sister-in-law for being a contol freak(apparently she left her wireless mike on).
Go HERE for the transcript and video.

From U.S. News:
Washington Whispers By Paul Bedard
Animal House in the West Wing
He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.

Ok. I am in a better mood now. Here's my letter:
Regarding your cover story about City Hall, "Doomed To Demo" (8/17), I'd like to add my two cents as someone who works in Eugene and Corvallis.
On one hand you have the city of Corvallis, with a vibrant artistic downtown filled with small businesses and buildings that convey the homey sense of a small town community. Then there's Eugene, filled with concrete structures that bisect the downtown area and loom over empty storefronts. If you don't believe me, go to both towns at Christmas and observe the amount of downtown shoppers.
The writer of the article obviously favors rebuilding these concrete monoliths that are almost 50 years old. Where is the Eugene that once had its main street (Willamette) running from the butte and train station through downtown? Willamette is chopped up by the ugly 1950s-designed Hilton and part of the Hult Center and shaded by concrete parking garages. Surrounding streets are metered for little or no parking, designed to speed any visitor through downtown as fast as possible.
Yes, rebuilding Eugene's currently earthquake-unsafe city center will cost money — but the result can and should be a kinder, gentler, friendlier downtown that serves the people. Other city and county agencies can be incorporated into a new downtown plan — an example is LCARA, which would benefit by having homeless animals available within walking distance to anyone interested in a new friend. Currently one has to drive miles to get to LCARA or Greenhill.
Maybe a police station that doesn't resemble the set of "Dragnet" would help the citizens warm up to those that protect and serve. Perhaps many local businesses could benefit from a new look downtown. Hello? Eugene CAN do it — contrary to the naysayer writer of your cover story.
Marc Time, Junction City
Having a bad case of the mondays-I saw Fahrenheit 911 again and it made me real angry-if anyone reading this doesn't vote for change in November may you burn in nuclear hell!
As far as my personal life, I sometimes feel that no one really likes me for me, that I am just someone's clown-it makes me depressed.
And getting old really blows-all these TV commercials on losing weight,cleaning your skin, anti-aging, chicks in bikinis after they bought a bag of pills or some piece of plastic exercise thing-all this energy and $$$$ spent on denying that people DO get older.
Should everyone over 40 just crawl off and die somewhere or should we round them up for the gas chamber?
Remember that EVERYONE needs love-love is not just for the young.
Have a nice FRIGGIN Day.

Today's Buzz column in the Corvallis Oregon Gazette Times asked people what they thought of the new airport security measures.
Alright I am not known as a cat lover, but our favorite stray cat Fluffy has been missing in the Junction City area since Thursday-he was my favorite out of all the strays we have been feeding, the one that was shot the year before last.

I need your help!
Dear fans of Creative Radio:
This week the Eugene Weekly has on the inside front cover the official ballot for the best of Eugene readers poll. Rather than having some corporate happy talk loser show that plays wimpy top 40 soft rock win again this year, strike a blow for free form radio that doesnt suck and vote for The Hangover.
A lot of you know that last year I won both radio categories in the Best of the Eugene Weekly Awards. And even though there has been the emergence of some great local radio shows on KWVA including The Baker's Ball and The Girls Room, I am asking again this year for your vote for Best Radio Show/Radio Personality.
Please Go to: http://ballot.eugeneweekly.com/index.php?sid=1
to register to vote online or pick up the latest Eugene Weekly to vote.
HERE ARE TEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FORTHE SUNDAY MORNING HANGOVER AS THE BEST RADIO SHOW ON EUGENE WEEKLYS BEST OF EUGENE BALLOT 2006
1) My show The Sunday Morning Hangover has been entertaining Eugene for almost four years playing obscure and forgotten popular music from the early 1900s up to present day sounds.
2) In the space of Two hours on Sunday mornings on KWVA 88.1 FM I have covered musical genres such as Exotica, Lounge, International, Found Music, Stupid Songs, Bizarre Childrens Music, Jazz, Rock, Country, Folk, Classical, Nostalgia, and Comedy while trying to maintain a palatable mix entertaining enough to listen to even with a Hangover.
3) Past shows have featured Rare and Unreleased tracks not commercially available and unheard on other radio shows.
4) I have produced and obtained Biographic Specials about artists such as Martin Denny, Ray Charles, The Bonzo Dog Band, Brian Eno, Peggy Lee, Henry Mancini, William Shatner, The Kinks, The Beach Boys and Syd Barrett.
5) Recognition of the "Hangover" and other great shows such as "Snap Crackle and Pop" in The Emerald, Eugene Weekly, and the Register Guard newspapers has brought much needed attention to KWVA's alternative format.
6) The Hangover is not just about music. Talk and Discussion segments have included info on the Arts, Hangover Cures, Entertainment News, Obits, Tributes, Horoscopes, Political Comment, Weird News, and Pet Parades.This year we exposed Bush's drunkeness and his affair with Condi,as well as the Administrations botch-up after Hurricane Katrina.
7) I am the only show on KWVA that has archives available (http://ahammer.com/marctime/) of past shows such as Women's History Month that features special herstories about prominent female recording pioneers such as Astrud Gilberto and Dionne Warwick.And don't forget that General Marc Time & Sargeant Peter Herley went to WAR!!! (against the corrupt powers of commercial radio) last February and showed local commercial radio the wrath of FREE FORM RADIO.
8) Outside factors such as funding issues and pressure from Student Advocates are threatening the existence of non-student run radio shows. This year, more than ever,I need your support.
9)A Real Stoopid Reason to vote for The Sunday Morning Hangover Best Eugene Radio Show is to feed and stroke my massive ego, and everyone knows all radio DJs are egomaniacal assholes who need constant attention.
10)I hope that the main reason that you vote in the Best of the Eugene Weekly for The Sunday Morning Hangover is that you like my show and are entertained by it. If you have a show at KWVA and you think that your show deserves the Best Of Award, by all means I hope that you will encourage your listeners to vote.
The last thing I would ever want to see is a commercial FM corprorate rock station win an award for not being creative innovative or different.
So there you have it. PLEASE VOTE EARLY AND OFTEN and get your votes in by my Birthday, September 2.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Rabbit rabbit” is a common superstition, held particularly among children. The most common modern version states that a person should say “rabbit, rabbit” upon waking on the first day of each new month, and on doing so will receive good luck for the remainder of that month.
Origins and history
The exact origin of the superstition is unknown, though it has appeared in print at least as early as 1920 in England, where it is most commonly said to have originated, though some reports place its origins even earlier, into the 1800s. Today it has spread to most of the English-speaking countries of the world, although like all folklore, determining its exact area of distribution is difficult. The superstition is related to the broader belief in the rabbit or hare being a “lucky” animal, as exhibited in the practice of carrying a rabbit's foot for luck.
As with most folklore, which is traditionally spread by word of mouth, there are numerous variant versions of the “rabbit, rabbit” superstition, in some cases specific to a certain time period or region. There are hundreds of variants, some of the most common of which include:
* The inverse: instead of believing that saying it will bring good luck, believing that not saying it will bring bad luck.
* Instead of saying “rabbit, rabbit”, saying just “rabbit”, or “rabbits”. Some also extend it to three rabbits: “rabbit, rabbit, rabbit,” which has some of the earliest written references.
* The earliest referenced usage may be to saying “rabbits” three times before going to sleep the last night of the month, and then “hares” three times first thing upon waking, though just two years later, it was three “rabbits” in the morning with no “hares” at all.
* Using the night of the new moon (traditionally the first day of the lunar month) instead of the first night of the month.
* Saying “black rabbits” the night before, and “white rabbits” on the morning in question.
* Believing that the effect is stronger on one's month of birth.
* Referring to the first day of each month as “Rabbit Day”.
* Various ways to counteract forgetting to say it, most commonly saying it backwards (“tibbar, tibbar”) before falling asleep.
* A different but related practice of saying “Happy White Rabbit's Day” to someone in order to bring good luck.
* Making “rabbit, rabbit” be the last words said on the last of the month and the first words said on the first of the month.
* One variation involves an element of competition: Saying “rabbit, rabbit” to another person on the first of the month entitles the speaker to the luck of the listener for the duration of the month.
* Traditions also extend to saying on the first of each month: “A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month; white rabbit!” White rabbit is declared to be the “no returns” policy on the “pinch and the punch” the receiver felt. Origins of this saying is unknown.
* A more modern variation is to say “rabbit, rabbit” to someone on the first day of the month, and whoever says it first wins. The idea of luck is not involved.
