BEAST's Voting Guide of FEAR
looking forward to this election like we'd look forward to a hemorrhoidectomy.
That's because George Bush is probably going to win. He's either going
to win outright and Kerry will humbly concede, or he's going to rig
or steal it in a squeaker, resulting in Kerry and the Democrats putting
up a meek fight before humbly conceding. The electorate, at least
those that were so passionate about anybody-but-Bush, will cry, whine
a lot, accept it, lick their wounds and crawl back into their cubicles

10 Reasons to be TERRIFIED This Halloween
The Supreme Court.
Not only could this body again determine the outcome of this election
by a widely scorned 5-4 vote based on indefensible logic, but if Bush

the payoff), ECMC's been sold and mortgaged for over a $100 million,
and the county still faces a $130 million deficit. Didn't this guy
just get re-elected? What the hell are you people thinking?
Talk With Sam Hoyt
Hoyt caught my attention during the Democratic primary for the 144th
NY Assembly District. During that race, Hoyt, a 12-year incumbent
in the post, faced Joe Golombek, a Buffalo City Councilman. The race
was very close, with Golombek launching an intense campaign backed
by a number of people, including County Executive Joel Giambra. Hoyt
managed to take the nomination, almost assuredly locking a victory
in the Democrat-heavy 144th.
'em Enough Pink Ribbon to Hang Themselves
Cancer Awareness Month was launched in 1985 by Zeneca Pharmaceuticals.
Zeneca is the company that manufactures the widely prescribed breast
cancer drug Nolvadex (generic name tamoxifen), and operates a chain
of cancer care centers. No conflict of interest there! All TV, radio,
and print media regarding Breast Cancer Awareness Month are paid for
and must be approved by Zeneca. But wait; there's more.
