Hello to all,

Sorry I have been incommunicado but I promise I have been devoting almost all of my time and effort to endeavors that will guarantee that George W. Bush will be a one-term court-appointed president.

OK Here's the latest:

1- Never Trust a War Criminal by Barry Crimmins will be published this fall by Seven Stories Press. Please harangue your local bookseller to stock it.

2- Things at Air America are going great. I work with the wonderful Randi Rhodes each day. I will also be in Boston to cover the Democratic National Convention for AAR. If you miss Crimquips, listen to Randi carefully and you just might hear a few. I also tend to turn up on her show on Tuesdays because....

3- I'll also be in New York every Tuesday at Rocky Sullivan's hosting "Satire for Sanity" featuring all the greatest political humorists working today. There is already an Air America special in production from the shows that I have promised to do on a weekly basis until George W. Bush is is voted, hounded or impeached from office."

This week's special musical guest is the fabled Christine Lavin. A. Whitney Brown, Randy Credico, Reno and Warren Thomas will add their world-class wits to the show. We have been selling out early for the unbelievably cheap $10 cover charge, so get to Rocky's (on Lexington Avenue between 28th and 29th as early as possible for the 8PM shows.

Upcoming guests will include Jim's Big Ego, David Cross, Kate Clinton and many, many more. This show has already become the underground place to be on Tuesdays in NYC. Any Tuesday you're in the city that the Republicans will soon regret holding their convention in, please do join us!

4- This weekend I return to Boston to perform at the Jimmy Tingle's UnConventional Comedy Convention at Jimmy's Off-Broadway Theater (formerly the Boston Baked Theater where I recorded "Kill the Messenger" way back when. I love the room, I love the city and I relish a chance to do an awful lot of new material in my artistic hometown. Working with my old pal Jimmy will be pretty great as well.
