They're gonna love the Trickle-down Education button! This is going to
be so much fun. It's nice to know that democracy/the human spirit is
still alive, kicking, and screaming.
Gotta go, must find time to track down a few others and write a proposal
for some education programming on KPFT (Pacifica Houston) Radio, 90.1.
Y'all keep your fingers crossed for this, we need it badly.
(singing)I bet you they won't play this song on the radio,
I bet you they won't play this **** song.
It's not that it's ****, or ****-**** controversial,
It's just that the ****ing words are awfully strong.
You can't say **** on the radio,
or **** or **** or BLEEEAAAH!
That's enough. ;-)
