Thanks again so much for having the insight and knowledge to endorse Veenker for the assembly race. I received the second smear mailing for this race today from the famous Californians Allied for Patient Protection Independent Expenditure Account (given Berman's campaign of "look at me, I am on the City Council, I am Mr. Palo Alto" theme one can only think that this trash somehow comes from him, despite the unconvincing denials) telling me that Veenker will be "LOST IN A MAZE" in Sacramento, it's just way too complicated for someone who isn't an experienced politico. Biggest trash smear I have seen in 30+ years of local campaigns. Shame! Just say yes to Vicki Veenker and perhaps thanks for the trash, it's likely to help her win this election.

Simitian is such an obvious choice... How could anyone disagree. Well, he is a an obnoxious bully who has totally messed up county government with his sadism and public floggings of low level government officials. [Portion removed.]

Seeking some beneficial use for Marc Berman's daily mailbox cloggers, I tried using them to line the bottom of my cat's litter box. But my cat wouldn't go near them. He is very fussy about where he steps.

Does anybody have any other ideas on how to put these things to a productive purpose?
