Things 4 People 2 Care About
Author's Statement of Purpose: My goal is to get more people to be interested in the community forum on TV Tacoma. I want folks to be able to recognize people on the street and have compassion for the engine driving them. "I will forge new connections to people orphaned by civilization." - RR Anderson

Mr. David Creso, Man w. Bolo Tie "The rampant spending of this council makes me want to puke my guts out. It is sick and gross. How many bolo ties must I wear to get this point across? HOW MANY?"
Waste Water Conspiracy Pump Man"They are stealing money out of the pockets of wastewater services to buy computers for other departments. For 31 years I alone stood as a sentinel at wastewater services to prevent this type of gangster communist Frankenstein conspiracy."
Phyllis Barret, DiscoverTacoma.com"The police continue to get raises and waste public monies to drive their police cars to work. If you want to know the truth go to my website w w w discover tacoma dot com."
RR Commentary: just say 'discovertacoma.com' you dont need to keep saying the w's. I cant take anymore w's!
The Mayor"Yo, bean counters what do you have to say about those computer funds?"
Mr. Brighteyes"Nothing. See? Yo, Donnie. Tell the nice man about computers."
Donnie The IT Guy
"eeeeeh, gateway is having a memorial day sale and its a good time to upgrade all sixty four of our older windows 95 machines over at operations ehhhh. I just hope they don't run vista... man that OS is a major frag"
Man with Transparent Mustache"The bridge was built in 1929 with two spans. A third span was added in 1944. The bridge received a new deck in 1946. Jump ahead to today. The work will remove old deck and replace it with a modern concrete one. Secondarily, it will change the bearing devices that allow it to move to and fro. The project is 86.5% federally funded."
RR Commentary: Wait.. did you just copy/paste that from exit133? Cheater!
** Thank You Mike Lonergan **
Field Marshal of Salvation Army"Thanks for your urgent response we're looking forward to working with the Tacoma Rescue Mission to even better help the homeless in Tacoma."
Mahatma Gandhi"Thank you"
Emergency Homeless Funding Opposition"I was homeless. I love the Salvation Army, et al. But there is another way to help stamp out homelessness. We don't need to give the MLKHDA any more money. I know a secret way that I would like to discuss with the council at a later date if I may."
RR Commentary: secret way? like Scientology? What is your prescribed method I wonder...
You May Already be a WINNER!

|RR) Did you enjoy Phyllis Barret's random request for 3 months worth of fuel receipts. Not to mention her projected yearlong amount with tape measure in hand.
Possible Chalk Off piece.

|Yes. I have a particular fondness for public commenters who bring props.
Should I ever find myself with an uncontrollable urge to testify before the council I will make sure to bring my tape measure (in addition to the multiple sunglasses).

|Yes, RR had Pat as "Pat the Neighborhood Advocate."
Pretty endearing title.

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.
