Eye of the Tiger, baby! Are you up to it? Up to this week's public service challenges? Kate and the Pee En crew takes you there.
We called the family in Florida and told them that if they didn't deliver the Sunshine State for Gore that there'd be quite a cold turkey on the table this Thanksgiving. ... Glad you voted? Sad you didn't? Did you not vote because you weren't registered or because you were too overwhelmed to look up your voting precinct? Why wait for the next election?

It was August 4, 2000. The heat? Relentless. The summer? Wearing on like an uncomfortable hairshirt. Sticky, clingy, and penitential as all get out. Unforgiven. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Time to wrap up the nasty scales and fins and bloody fishheads of a pointless tussle. So stupid. Crikey, isn't that the way of it? Denial impacts and creates a veritable domino track -- like one of those serious ones on Real People or Guinness World Records. Cope. Deal. Do it.
We are Tiger. Rebels with a cause -- aggressive, courageous, and candid. Big softies at heart. Romantic, passionate, playful! Power! Courage! Will! It will be another decade before we have a year of our own again. Are you following us? Don't. We're rambling. Rambling without a cause. In The Austin Chronicle issue of August 4, we ran a cool John Anderson photo feature (www.auschron.com/issues/dispatch/2000-08-04/portfolio2.html) about some damn big kitties. Now is the time for all good friends to come to the aid of their kitties.
The Tiger's Eye (née Noah's Land), the wildlife rescue park featured therein, houses over 400 wild animals, and needs our help. A recent press release issues a Plea for Funds to deal with the lease on the property. Please revisit the story via the above Web link or better yet, visit the place, live and in person. The brisk snap of fall that is draping Central Texas is a darned good time to hang out with some cool cats. Send donations to: Noah's Land Wildlife Park, 1033 Hwy 304, Harwood, TX 78632. Or visit by taking Highway 71 east toward Bastrop. Immediately after the Bastrop city limit, turn right at 304. Noah's Land is 30 miles, on the right. From San Antonio, take I-10 east and turn left at 304. Noah's Land is 5.5 miles on the left. 830/540-4664.
