Post and Beem you dicktards!
Author's Statement of Purpose: My goal is to get more people to be interested in the PUBLIC COMMENT + COMMUNITY FORUM on TV Tacoma. I want folks to recognize our civic speakers on the street and have compassion for the thundering engine driving them. "I will forge new connections to people orphaned by civilization." - RR Anderson

"Hi I'm Whitney Huston Rhodes. I am a hyper-intelligent person as you can tell by the thickness of my glasses.� It is the opinion of National Economic Re-Development (N.E.R.D.) that we recommend a post and beam structure for the sound transit city-rape route line--"
[jeers from audience]
"You got somethin' to say about post and beam?� You wanna come over here and say that to my face?� [unaudible heckler] Yeah that's what I thought.� Stuff it."
Ultra-Attractive Free Spirit Bar Owner
"Like stuff is happin'n in the dome district my brothers and sisters. The earth goddess sends her welcome embrace, we should not try and bury her under a berm.� Sounder should hear the sound from my heart. It is crying."
IMAGINE TACOMA'S David Boe
"Harken! For I am he who is THE GREAT BOE. I have been summoned though the sands of time to bring you this message: BEWARE THE BERM!"
"Perhaps your are skeptical of my powers? my vision? Ahhhhh."
[mysterious high-pitched noise fills room]
"GAZE into the dome upon my head-flesh!� The reflection holds a fate... a fate beyond mortal imagination.� Imagine Tacoma, a berm bisecting our city in two.� Be hold a sad fate.� A lonely fate.� Heed my fleshy orb!!!!"
The Mayor, PLAYER STATUS: "BEDAZZLED"
"Yes.� The head of BOE speaks. We must begin construction of the beam trestle now."
[mayor removes shoes, stacking them in Stonehenge formation. mysterious whistling gets louder. mayor gets visibly sweaty and soon disappears beneath council bench.]

|This is my favorite show. |
I was a little worried when there were only six of them left and lonely university place guy went home, but now that most of them are back on the island and Sound Transit is shooting them with flaming arrows it's getting much better again.
...sorry I think the Click! outage is starting to get to me a little

Yeah, I saw University Place Guy last week. I hopped on the #1 on from UW Tacoma to the office and there he was: front seat . . . chin to chest . . . sound asleep . . . his wife seated next to him . . . .
The man is a king.

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
